Big ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #143


I’m confronted with it
So big
So far to go

So little time
How will I explore it all
How will I get there

A step
At a

I don’t know
Just how far
That will take me

It will be
To the end

So best
To not
Stand still

Wherever I get
That will have to be
Far enough

Every step
I’ll just have to be
Big enough

Last week we identified a Standout. This week, let’s get BIG, or find something else to inspire you in this photograph of a late sunset over Howe Sound, 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: Standout
Jessie, Bon's Off Broadway, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
Challenge #142 ~ Standout

The word for last week’s Pic and a Word Challenge #142 was Standout, along with this photograph of a line drawing of a girl nearly lost in the chaos of graffiti on a diner wall at Bon’s off Broadway, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

So far, two bloggers found a Standout this week. A newcomer and someone who’s posted a response to all 142 weeks. Way to go, both of you. 🙂 (It’s still early, and I scheduled this last night for an early post, so I’ll add whoever else posts, or has posted a response, by the end of today. =) )

View all the Pic and a Word Challenges, including the current challenge, on the Pic and a Word Challenge tag page.

Happy Posting!
