Ragged ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #326

Tumult of Stone, Frary Peak Trail, Antelope State Park, Great Salt Lake, Utah, United States of America

A tumult of stone
Fallen amongst the grasses
From ragged cliffs above

Ancient diminished crags
Once, perhaps, grand as snow capped horizon
First to soil, then to life, feeding hungry bison

Pic and a Word Challenge

Last week we got Warped. This week, let’s smooth over the Ragged. Or find something else to inspire you with this fisheye view of Utah’s Great Salt Lake, Utah from the Frary Peak Trail on Antelope State Park. Salt Lake City and the Wasatch Range of the Rocky Mountains in the distance.

The Pic and a Word Challenge is a weekly creativity prompt offered Mondays.

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 inspirational elements 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: Warped

Warped, Cathedral of the Madeleine, Salt Lake City, Utah, United States of America
Challenge #325 ~ Warped

The word for last week’s Pic and a Word Challenge #325  was Warped, along with this fisheye view from Cathedral of the Madeleine in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA.

One blogger found something Warped this week. Thanks Woolly! 🙂
