Wakes ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #286

Wakes, BC Ferries, Nanaimo to Horseshoe Bay, Strait of Georgia, British Columbia, Canada

Behind me

The wake of my journey
All froth and churn
As I labour

To leave
To forget

Ahead of me

The wake of the moon
All sparkly possibility
As I awaken

To hope
To purpose

Moonlit Journey

Pic and a Word Challenge

Last week we went Sailing. This week let’s ride the Wakes, or seek something else to inspire you in this  photograph of the dual wakes of the ferry from Nanaimo to Horseshoe Bay and the silvery moon (OK, it’s actually the sun) over The Strait of Georgia, British Columbia, Canada.

The Pic and a Word Challenge is (usually) a weekly creativity prompt offered (also, usually) Mondays.

Each challenge 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 to illustrate your post, or any images 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: Sailing
