Sunrise ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #178

For Purple Mountain Majesties, Great Sand Dunes National Park, Colorado, United States of America
I let the day go
Leave the past
In the past

As the harsh light fades
I live in the magic glow
Of this brief moment

Let the darkness come
Like closed eyes
And a deep breath

A new glory follows
A light to be filled
With possible moments

Last week we went Upriver. This week, let`s get woke to Sunrise or find something else to inspire you in this sunrise photograph of the dunes and peaks of Great Sand Dunes National Park in Colorado, 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: Upriver
Seaspan & Tug, Steveston, Fraser River, British Columbia, Canada
Challenge #177 ~ Upriver
The word for last week’s Pic and a Word Challenge #177 was Upriver, along with this photograph of a tugboat pulling a barge up the Fraser River in Steveston, British Columbia, Canada.

Five bloggers went Upriver this week. =) Thank you, everyone! ❤
