Love ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #156

Amphitrite Sunset Lovers, Amphitrite Point Lighthouse, Ucluelet, British Columbia, Canada
In the last lingering moment of daylight
Beneath an everlasting beacon
I know my love for you

Bright as the nearest star
Steady as the lighthouse beam
Vast as the ocean
Persistent as the waves
Breaking on the enduring rock

Sometimes a caress
A lullaby sussurus
Sometimes a storm
A tempest of ecstacy

As the night settles in
I take you in my arms
And all existence folds
Into the infinitesimal point of infinity
That is two people
In love

Last week we loved Girls. This week, let’s explore Love — whether love itself or love for someone, something, somewhere, some time — or find something else to inspire you in this photograph of lovers at sunset beside Amphitrite Point Lighthouse, 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: Girls
Two Uyghur Girls, Kashgar, Xinjiang, China
Challenge #155 ~ Girls

The word for last week’s Pic and a Word Challenge #155 was Girls, along with this photograph of two Uyghur muslim girls in Kashgar, Xinjiang Province, China.

Four bloggers told us about  Girls this past week. Thank you, everyone! =)
