Cracks ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #341

A Crack in the Sky Let the Light In, State Highway 23, Johnsons Corner, North Dakota, USA

There was a small crack
Which let the light in
Amber and warm
To dispel the gloomy darkness
But left the shadows
So I could see both
Where I was going
And where I’d come from

Pic and a Word Challenge

Last week we took the opportunity to Reboot. This week, let’s allow the light to flow in through the Cracks. Or find something else to inspire you in in this photograph of sunset leaking in under the storm clouds at Johnsons Corner in North Dakota, USA. 🙂

The Pic and a Word Challenge is a (usually) weekly creativity prompt (usually) 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 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: Reboot

The word for last week’s Pic and a Word Challenge #340  was Reboot, along with this photograph of my RAV4, bicycle and teardrop trailer departing Jameson Lake in Waterville, Washington, USA, after our first night on the road.

One blogger pressed the Reboot button this time. Thanks, Woolly! 🙂
