Gods ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #315

Gods, Sanur, Denpasar, Bali, Indonesia

Such delight
It seems
The artist took
With godly visage

And none too small
The chisel hammered
With whimsical caprice

A fitting ode to Gods
Whose whims become

The stuff of legends told

Whiskered God
Bali, Indonesia

Pic and a Word Challenge

Last time we enjoyed an Night. This week, let’s be poke the Gods. Or find something else to inspire you in this photograph of a Hindu God in Sanur, Denpasar, Bali, Indonesia.

The Pic and a Word Challenge is (usually) a weekly creativity prompt offered (also, usually) Mondays (though it’s getting harder to make that claim 😉 ).

With each challenge I provide a photograph of mine along with a single word. The challenge? Use the pic and/or word as  inspiration to create something — a photograph, a painting, video, 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 challenge’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: Night

The word for last week’s Pic and a Word Challenge #314  was Night, along with this of two women on a scooter, traversing the night streets of Denpasar, Bali, Indonesia.

Just one blogger went out into the Night this week; Thanks, Woolly!
