Vagabond ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #238

Note:
Rule change this week!
See below.

To move
Through time and space
By act of will

Undeterred and
Undirected by
Duty or responsibility

Led not by
Leash or force
Nor beholden to another’s wish

But to stay
In just one place
So long as restless heart desires this

Then move along
To some place other
There to find what’s there to see

Blackened Earth, Highway G215, Nearing Liuyuanzhen, Gansu Province, China

Rolling through the Ebony

Rolling through
A land of crushed ebony
Tarry asphalt dividing
The slender white lane markers
And scrubby tufts of amber

I scramble up an ebony mound
To find a landscape of ebony mounds
Growing to distant mountains
All of the same ebony skin

“At least,” I think, out loud
Into the air so dry
It swallows up the words
Right off my tongue
“the falling sun seems less
Like a fire
On a cast-iron skillet.”

Pix to Words ~ Volume I :: Harmony in Word and Form

Pix to Words Magazine ~ Volume I

I promised myself way back in 2015, “I’ll publish a book based on Pix To Words if I reach 500 followers by the end of the year.” I did, but I didn’t, so now I finally am. Motivated to provide something people could take home from my gallery exhibit, Harmony in Word and Form, now showing at Gallery Bistro, and also something to share a bit of the gallery experience with those who can’t possibly make it to the gallery, I present Pix to Words Magazine ~ Volume I. The magazine features most of the photographs, poetry and stories appearing in the gallery exhibit, with a couple additions thrown in.

Harmony in Word and Form: 2018 Gallery Exhibit featuring Pix to Words photographs, stories and poetry.

Harmony in Word and Form

I apologize, everyone, for being AWOL these past few weeks, and for not posting Pic and a Word Challenges. But I do have some exciting news.

All of my creative energy has been directed toward completing preparations to hang a gallery exhibit featuring photographs, stories and poems selected from Pix to Words. Very exciting! And a much larger task than I allowed myself to believe.

Lots of new stuff coming as a result. When things calm down after the opening (perhaps a bit during … stay tuned to the Facebook Pix to Words page if I can manage some live feed from the reception.)

Pic and a Word should return August 26th, the day after the Opening Reception.

Thanks for your patience!

And wish me luck. =)
