Welcome to this week’s writephoto prompt.

Use the image below as inspiration to create a post on your own blog… poetry, prose, humour… light or dark, whatever you choose.

For visually challenged writers, the image shows a bay with clear, glassy water, reflecting bue sky and clouds. The bay is surrounded by green hills, one of which may be an island in the distance…

~*~

I see my future reflected in the glass like surface

The open vista reflecting the blue sky

Bright like my coming days are going to be

Calm waters and smooth surface free of turmoil

My hope is that life goes on without trouble

These child-like dreams and hopes I harbor

They say if you wish for something strongly

It may come your way as a gift from destiny

#writephoto

Welcome to this week’s writephoto prompt.

Use the image below as inspiration to create a post on your own blog… poetry, prose, humour… light or dark, whatever you choose.

For visually challenged writers, the image shows a frosty dawn, seen through the bare branches of trees. The sky is aflame, dappled with pink clouds, deepening to orange and gold. On the horizon is a small hill crowned with trees, behind which the sun will rise.

~*~

Looking at the dawn gives me hope

That this new day will be better than yesterday

The glow which is lighting up the sky

Says that something wondrous may happen

In the day which is going to start

If I don’t hold on to this hope, I know

My days will be bleak and dark always

It’s my hope that makes me smile

It is the anticipation that makes me

Get up from my bed and be ready to face each day

Welcome to this week’s writephoto prompt.

Use the image below as inspiration to create a post on your own blog… poetry, prose, humour… light or dark, whatever you choose.

For visually challenged writers, the image shows a suit of armour festooned in cobwebs, standing against a wood-panelled wall 

~*~

Years of neglect and deterioration had affected

All that was in that old house, lamented of abuse

A cursory look was enough to tell you that there wasn’t

Anyone who wanted or loved anything stored here

They were just things, one could always reason

Things have only value if you cared about them

But someone wanted all this once, which now stood

Shrouded in years of dust, webs hanging for want of care

Is this the legacy we leave behind, things which have

No value for those left behind just things which need

To be sorted, stored or gotten rid of, as soon as possible

I wouldn’t want to leave behind a mess for others to deal with

I would rather leave good memories for my loved ones to cherish

Thursday Photo Prompt- Balefire. #Writephoto – The first test

Sue Vincent is the host of Thursday Photo Prompt

#writephoto

Welcome to this week’s writephoto prompt. You can find all last week’s entries in the weekly round-up, which was published earlier today.

Use the image below as inspiration to create a post on your own blog… poetry, prose, humour… light or dark, whatever you choose.

For visually challenged writers, the image shows a hooded figure in the darkness, silhouetted against flames that echo its shape. The figure holds something in its hand that may, perhaps, be a wand…

~*~*~

White light and intense heat were coming from that balefire. She stepped back in fright because it was much bigger and dangerous looking than what she had imagined or intended.

It was exhilarating that she had done it, no doubt. But now she wasn’t sure what to do about this hotly blazing fire that she had ignited just by a simple spell. Her mother had told her that it was the first thing a witch needed to learn. And now she would be proudly included in the clan.

There was a movement behind her and she whirled instantly to see who it was but couldn’t see anyone. Then the movement occurred again, now to her left. She tried to calm her fear and pointed her wand in the direction of the sound.

“Show yourself or ……”

She couldn’t think of a suitable threat because she wasn’t armed. And didn’t know any more magic then lighting a fire.

A raven flew towards her and sat on a branch near her. Gradually he changed shape and now it was an old man wearing a long black cloak.

” You didn’t think that we would let you practice your first ever spell without one of us supervising, did you?”his tone was mock-serious but there was an amused light in his eyes.

” Oh grandpa, you scared the life out of me. I thought it was one of the other clans spying on me ” she went forward and got a huge bear hug from her grandpa.

They put out the fire and headed home. ” How proud your mother will be when I tell her about today “

Welcome to this week’s writephoto prompt.

Use the image below as inspiration to create a post on your own blog… poetry, prose, humour… light or dark, whatever you choose.

For visually challenged writers, the image shows  a snowstorm with the silhouette of a stag watching between two trees.

~*~

The stag, a symbol of independence

Majestic and proud standing tall

Surveying all the snow-clad forest

Dares me to step into its domain

A gauntlet of challenge thrown my way

Do I have the guts to face nature in its own element

Perhaps not, as I turn around and

Make my way back to my warm home

We all are kings of our kingdoms

Giving respect and freedom to each other

To rule our domains by our own laws

~*~*~

Serenity

When the world is still sleeping and the day is yet to begin

The sun is going to brighten our world, but not just yet

There is a corner of my universe that is filled with peace

The serenity and quietness of early morning dawn and only me

I stand in the stillness of the time, a pause before the morning takes

Its first breath, before the business of life resumes its chaotic pace

A few moments to recharge

A few breaths of freshness

A time where I am just with me

I savor these precious minutes

Before I plunge back into the pursuit of living!

Thursday Photo Prompt- Copper# WritePhoto

Sue Vincent is the host of Thursday Photo Prompt.

#writephoto

Welcome to this week’s writephoto prompt.

For visually challenged writers, the image shows a deserted path through the woods, carpeted with the fallen leaves of autumn.

~*~

Standing here at the beginning of this path, I wonder; Is this the beginning or the end? Have I reach my destination or am I setting forward on it? The path beckons to me, the trees form a canopy over my head and a welcoming carpet of copper and brown hues laying on the forest floor, all calling me to start on my journey.

It is fall, the season of ends and beginnings. It fills the atmosphere with the special aroma of autumn. Maybe it’s true for my life too. An end to the old and a start for a new phase of my life. I need to move ahead. Move away from the life which has gone before. All that I hoped but never achieved and all that still rankles in my mind. It is time to bury all that in the leaves of autumn and step forward into the new phase of my life.

All the tomorrows are waiting for me to start living the rest of my life with new hope and enthusiasm.

The time to change is here. It is after all a new beginning. So I step forth with renewed hope and keenness!

For visually challenged writers, the image shows an odd and ancient-looking magpie with milky eyes and one wing folded over his back, almost like a cloak.

~*~

One for sorrow

It it true, they ask

If I see one will I stuck by something tragic?

Is this a harbinger of doom?

An omen of impending tragedy?

Or just a pretty bird seeking to feed itself and it’s family. Gathering food from the undergrowth?

Or maybe it’s a spy, wearing a cloak and keeping a beady eye on the going ons here and there!

But I think it is a spectacular example of the variability of the beauty nature has gifted us with.

A look at this bird and you realize that nature is the ultimate artist. Using color palettes that we humans can not even visualize.

Simple beautiful!

Thursday Photo Prompt- Murmur #Writephoto

Sue Vincent is the host of Thursday Photo Prompt

#writephoto

Welcome to this week’s writephoto prompt.

For visually challenged writers, the image shows dark clouds and bare trees against a fiery sunset, with a murmration of starlings creating a cloud of their own

~*~

A miraculous sight a lucky few witness

They move as one, these thousands of birds

A pattern even the most sophisticated equipment

Cannot predict with any firm logic

It is totally beyond what we know

But it just show us how the majestic nature

Can give the creatures of wild, the harmony

The coordination to move as one body

It reaffirms our faith in the Creators omnipotence

Thursday Photo Prompt- Reaching #WritePhoto

#writephoto

Welcome to this week’s writephoto prompt.

Use the image below as inspiration to create a post on your own blog… poetry, prose, humour… light or dark, whatever you choose.

For visually challenged writers, the image shows a barren landscape against the shadows of distant hills. Bare branches reach towards each other, framing the scene, while shafts of light stream through a golden window in the dark, cloudy skies.
~*~

I often feel the connection when nature beckons

As if inviting us to feel and share its different moods

Looking at this vista I feel that

The canopy overhead is incomplete, and it seems

The branches are reaching out to each other

Saying, let’s hold hands and join

Make strong bonds which enforce

The dominion of the nature

Even the rays of the watered down sunlight

Feels ineffective and melancholy here

The whole ambience is trying to gather strength

Working up its energy and force

To show that it rules here and no one else
