Numbers ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #106

Countdown, Fibreco Export Inc., North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
I sometimes count
The empty days
Of my spiritual slumber
But as I look back
Tallying the events
Of my awakening
Each day is filled
With the struggle
For the light

Last week we chilled out with Veil. This week, let’s take an account of Numbers. Or find something else to inspire your creativity in this black and white photograph of industrial silos in the port of North Vancouver, 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.

Challenge #105 ~ Veil
The word for last week’s Pic and a Word Challenge #105 was Veil, along with this photograph of lake and mountains smothered by wildfire smoke in Banff National Park, Alberta, Canada.

Two responses to Veil this week. Thanks! =)
