Heights ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #164

Golden Heights, Bolinas, From Panoramic Highway, Mt. Tamalpais State Park, California, United States of America
From the Golden State’s
Golden heights
I kick back

Refreshed by the cool breeze
Chilling the fire
Of the hot sun

Atop the curvilinear delights
Of hillocks dappled
With grasses and pines

Where even infinity seems so close
I could touch it
Right there

As the curve of the Earth
Rounds the line
Where ocean meets the sky

Golden Heights

Last week we created Handmade posts. This week, let`s climb the Heights or find something else to inspire you in this photograph of grassy hillocks along the Panoramic Highway in the mountains high above Bolinas, California, USA.

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: Handmade
Handmade Boats, Ganges River, Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh, India
Challenge #163 ~ Handmade

The word for last week’s Pic and a Word Challenge #163 was Handmade, along with this photograph of handmade rowboats on India’s Ganges River in the holy city of Varanasi.

Eleven bloggers created twelve Handmade posts this week. I think that’s a new record for posts and bloggers. =) Thank you, everyone! ❤
