Water of life
Cuts into stone
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.
