Symmetry ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #245

Symmetry, Whistler, British Columbia, Canada
I revel
In asymmetrical symmetry
Seek the imperfectly perfect
For there is no beauty
No moment
No experience worth a memory
Confined to the bounds
Of the expected
Or the predictable

A perfect world
Constructed with ruthless precision
Would be far too mundane
To provide the challenge
Which offers existence

British Columbia, Canada

Pic and a Word Challenge

Last week we bathed in the radiance. This week, let’s find asymmetry in Symmetry, or find something else to inspire you in this macro photograph of wildflowers in Whistler, British Columbia, Canada.

The Pic and a Word Challenge is a weekly creativity prompt offered Mondays.

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.

The previous challenge was: Radiance
Ebbing Radiance, Howe Sound, Sea to Sky Highway, Near Lions Bay, British Columbia, Canada
Challenge #244 ~ Radiance
The word for last week’s Pic and a Word Challenge #244 was Radiance, along with this photograph of Howe Sound in the gathering twilight along the Sea to Sky Highway in British Columbia, Canada.

Four bloggers found the light in Radiance this week. =) Thank you! ❤

Happy Creating!
