Veil ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #105

White Pyramid & Waterfowl Lakes, Icefields Parkway, Banff National Park, Alberta, Canada
Difficult it is
To remember beauty
Especially my own
When the veil of anger
Occludes my vision
Shrouds my being

Shrouded Turquoise

Last week we chilled out with Ice. This week, let’s peek under the Veil. Or find something else to inspire your creativity in this photograph of a glacial lake shrouded in wildfire smoke along Banff National Park’s Icefields Parkway, 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.

Challenge #104 ~ Ice

The word for last week’s Pic and a Word Challenge #104 was Ice, along with this black and white photograph of an ice-capped mountain in Banff National Park.

One response to Ice so far this week. Thanks Woolly Muses! =)
