Depths ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #317

Water of Life Deep in the Canyon, Lipan Point, Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona, United States of America

Water of life
Cuts into stone

Reveals depths
To be plumbed

A hard journey down
A harder journey back

Rewards every step
Even the most painful

Pic and a Word Challenge

Last time we followed the Winding. This week, let’s plumb the Depths. Or find something else to inspire you in this fisheye view of the Grand Canyon from Lipan Point, in Arizona, USA.

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: Winding

Winding Path, Goosenecks State Park, Utah, United States of America
Challenge #316 ~ Winding

The word for last week’s Pic and a Word Challenge #316  was Winding, along with this ultrawide angle photograph of the San Juan River winding through Goosenecks State Park in Utah, USA

Woolly is keeping his streak running with the only Winding entry this week; Thanks, Woolly!
