Ice ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #104

Ice and Rock, Banff National Park, Trans Canada Highway, Alberta, Canada
Like ice
It trailed
From the nape
Of my neck
Down my
Straight hard spine
The chill
In my thoughts
While the truth
Sank in
And the world
Came apart

Ice and Rock
Rocky Mountains
Trans Canada Highway
Banff National Park
Alberta, Canada
Last week we contemplated Contemplation. This week, let’s chill out and play with Ice. Or find something else to inspire your creativity in this photograph of a glacier precariously perched atop a Rocky Mountain peak in Banff National Park, Alberta, 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: Contemplation
Contemplating Turmoil, Nairn Falls Provincial Park, Pemberton, British Columbia, Canada
Challenge #103 ~ Contemplation
The word for last week’s Pic and a Word Challenge #103 was Contemplation, along with this photograph of a rainbow inside Jasper National Park’s Athabasca Falls, Alberta Canada.

Three responses to Contemplation this week. Thanks everyone! =)
