Light ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #133

Amphitrite Night, Amphitrite Lighthouse, Wild Pacific Trail, Ucluelet, British Columbia, Canada
In the darkness
Sweeping light
So sidle by
Serrated shore
Escorted in
Safe harbour

April is National Poetry Month, which means today is the first day of #NaPoWriMo, the month-long challenge to write a poem every day for the 30 days of April. In past years, when I’d been managing to post at least once every day, this has been an easy challenge. The past year has only once seen a poem posted every day of a month, so I’ll have to be on the ball for the next 29 days.

Last week we awaited the darkness in Twilight. This week, let’s follow the Light. Or find something else to inspire your creativity in this photograph of a boat sailing by the Amphitrite Lighthouse in Ucluelet, 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: Twilight

Challenge #132 ~ Twilight

The word for last week’s Pic and a Word Challenge #132 was Twilight, along with this photograph of lights on the farther shore of Howe Sound, British Columbia, Canada.

Six bloggers entered the Twilight this week. Thanks everyone!
