Slumber ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #136

Snow Man, Britannia Beach, British Columbia, Canada
As the snow fell, he slept
And it became
The slumber of aeons

His awakening would be
Celebrated around the world

Though his eyes never opened again

Last week we struggled to get through Occluded. This week, let’s enter the world of dreams with Slumber, or find something else to inspire you in this photograph of snow fallen upon a stone carving in Britannia Beach, 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: Occluded
Occluded Valley, Banff National Park, Icefields Parkway, Rocky Mountains, Alberta, Canada
Challenge #135 ~ Occluded

The word for last week’s Pic and a Word Challenge #135 was Occluded, along with this photograph of smoke obscured Rocky Mountains in Banff National Park, Alberta, Canada

Four bloggers struggled through Occluded this week. Kudos everyone, on rising to a tough challenge!
