Kisses ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #318

Moki Dugway Dusk over Valley of the Gods, Utah State Highway 261, Near Mexican Hat, United States of America

The world transforms
With just half a turn
Twice sun kisses
Sky and stone

In the dusk
With gentle love
Comes the dawn
With passion’s lust

Pic and a Word Challenge

Last time we plumbed the Depths. This week, let’s give some passionate Kisses. Or find something else to inspire you in these dusk and sunrise photographs taken from Moki Dugway, Utah State Highway 261 near Mexican Hat, Utah, 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: Depths

Water of Life Deep in the Canyon, Lipan Point, Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona, United States of America
Challenge #317 ~ Depths

The word for last week’s Pic and a Word Challenge #317  was Depths, along with this fisheye view of the Grand Canyon from Lipan Point, in Arizona, USA.

Two bloggers plummeted into the Depths this week; Thanks, you two!

Happy Creating! ❤
