A brittle star breaks
And within a few moments more
The 4 billion year legacy of life
That is my planet
Will be rendered to vapour and dust
As will I
And all I love
And all that loves me
But all I have in these final moments
Which I endeavour to take with me
New Mexico, United States of America
Taken during travels, 2022
Pic and a Word Challenge
Last week we smoothed over the Ragged. This week, let’s handle something Brittle with delicacy. Or find something else to inspire you with this photo of an intense sunset in New Mexico, United States of America.
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.
- 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
The previous challenge was: Ragged
The word for last week’s Pic and a Word Challenge #326 was Ragged, along 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.
Two bloggers smoothed the Ragged this week. Thanks! 🙂
