Sailboat and Crescent, Howe Sound, Bowen Island from Horseshoe Bay, Sea to Sky Highway, British Columbia, Canada

Becalmed ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #91

Under an empty sky
But for the lonesome crescent

And I
On the quiet sea
Furl my sails
Start the engine
Turn for home

To which I bring
This peaceful moment

Sailboat and Crescent Moon
Howe Sound
Bowen Island from Horseshoe Bay
On the Sea to Sky Highway
British Columbia, Canada, 2017
Last week we sought the mighty in small with Diminutive. This week? Find the mighty in Diminutive. Or seek something else to inspire your creativity in this photograph of a sailboat beneath a crescent moon over Howe Sound, British Columbia, Canada.

The Pic and a Word Challenge is a weekly creativity prompt offered Sundays.

Each week I provide a photograph of mine along with a single word. The challenge? Use the pic and/or word as points of inspiration to create something — a photograph, a painting, prose, poetry, fiction, non-fiction, longread or just a few words. You are welcome to use these two elements (photograph and word) literally, thematically or metaphorically. If you create both images and words, all the better.

To participate:

  • Use any title you like
  • Your response can be words and/or an image
  • You may use my image in your post, or any image you have created
  • Place the challenge’s Pic (if you use it for inspiration) and Word prominently in your post
  • Mention that you are responding to the Pic and a Word Challenge
  • Add a link to this post in your response

To help us find your response — whether on WordPress, Instagram, Flicker, Tumblr, etc. — you can also:

  • Add a comment on this post to announce your response
  • Apply the tag/hashtag “Pic and a Word Challenge” or “#picandawordchallenge” to your post

Each week, I’ll list the previous week’s responses at the end of the new challenge. I may also share some on my social media: Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Tumblr, etc.

Last week’s challenge: Diminutive

Challenge #90 ~ Diminutive

The word for last week’s Pic and a Word Challenge #90 was Diminutive, along with this photograph of a sailboat beneath a crescent moon above Howe Sound’s Bowen Island, in British Columbia, Canada.

Four bloggers got really small this week with Diminutive. Thanks everyone! =)
