Bend ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #162

Horseshoe Bend, Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, Arizona, United States of America
The bends oft
Obscure the end
Yet go
I must
And like the river
Until the end
Is sure

Horseshoe Bend
Colorado River
Glen Canyon National Recreation Area
Arizona, United States of America

Last week we observed Remembrance. This week, let`s travel round the Bend or find something else to inspire you in this photograph of Horseshoe Bend on the Colorado River in Glen Canyon National Recreation Site at Page, Arizona, United States of America.

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 images
  • You may use my image in your post, or any image you have created
  • 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: Remembrance
Fallen Maple Leaves, Stanley Park, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
Challenge #161 ~ Remembrance
The word for last week’s Pic and a Word Challenge #161 was Remembrance, along with this photograph of autumn maple leaves fallen to Earth in Stanley Park, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Nine bloggers spent a moment in Remembrance this week. Thank you, everyone! =)
