Touching ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #256

Touching, Time Exposure of some Random Netflix Show
In that blur
Of existence

When space becomes time
And time becomes space
When love becomes all possibility
And possibility infinite
And time timeless

I will find you
And always will

Because this is the thing
Between you and I
The connection without reason
The being without purpose
Except that we are always


Whether far apart
Or side-by-side
Decades may pass
Without a touch
Though we are always


In the end
That is all we need know
About the unknowable

An Inexplicable Love
Time Exposure
Virgin River, Netflix, 2020

Pic and a Word Challenge

Last week we cuddled up in Warmth. This week let’s feel ourselves Touching, or seek something else to inspire you in this abstracting time exposure of a woman on some random Netflix show.

The Pic and a Word Challenge is (usually) 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: Warmth

The Hot and Cold of Love, Time Exposure, Virgin River, Netflix
Challenge #255 ~ Warmth

The word for last week’s Pic and a Word Challenge #255 was Warmth, along with this photograph of a perfectly baked loaf of sourdough bread in my kitchen.

Four bloggers found Warmth this week. =) Thank you everyone!

Happy Creating!
