Thorns ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #246

Thorn and Flower, Whistler, British Columbia, Canada
I traverse the wild fields
Amid array of thorn and barb
Simple beauties shall reveal
Pick off the burrs
Let the scratches heal

Pic and a Word Challenge

Last week we found asymmetry in symmetry. This week, let’s find beauty among the Thorns, or find something else to inspire you in this macro photograph of thorny beauty 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: Symmetry

Challenge #245 ~ Symmetry

The word for last week’s Pic and a Word Challenge #245 was Symmetry, along with this photograph of wildflowers in Whistler, British Columbia, Canada.

Three bloggers found the asymmetry in Symmetry this week. =) Thank you! ❤
