Valley ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #174

Valley Flow, Maligne Valley, Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada
Through the valley
Between the rocky mounts
Where days go by
Too fast to count

Then what remains
But moments lost
In timeless frame

I let them go
And count no more

Just live them all

In endless flow
So none pass by

For none remorse
Nor row against
The river’s course

The ripples
And the rapids play
The challenges
Of every day

The Valley Flow
Maligne Valley
Jasper National Park
Alberta, Canada

Last week we followed the lines to Fences. This week, let`s go down into the Valley or find something else to inspire you in this photograph of the Maligne River flowing through Jasper National Parks’ Maligne Valley in Alberta, 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 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: Fences
Etched Granite, Athabasca Glacer, Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada
Challenge #173 ~ Fences
]The word for last week’s Pic and a Word Challenge #173 was Fences, along with this digitally filtered photograph of granite etched by the Athabasca Glacier in Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada.

Seven bloggers climbed over Fences this week. Thank you, everyone! ❤
