Photo prompt round-up – Flame #writephoto

The photo for this week’s prompt was taken in Ye Olde Nags Head, a 17th century coaching inn in Castleton… and one of the innumerable Derbyshire pubs where we warm our toes on our travels.

More wonderful entries this week. Thank you to everyone who took part. Please click on the links below to visit all the posts and leave a comment for the author! A new prompt will be published later today and I will reblog as many as I can through the week… but with as there are now so many great entries, that will not be all of them. All contributions will be featured in the round-up on Thursday.

Please note: As I am away this weekend, there may be a delay in responding with comments and reblogs!

The vagaries of WordPress mean that occasionally a pingback won’t get through. If you have written a piece for this week’s challenge and it does not appear below, please leave a link in the comments and I will add it to the list.

Come and join in!



Lost in the dreaming

Watching flaming horses dance

The past and future

Elemental visions live

On the edge of consciousness



Possibilities waver

Consuming our choice

Precariously balanced

On the edge of extinction


Hope is a phoenix

Rising from its own embers

In light and beauty

Shedding feathers of comfort

Around a welcoming hearth

  2. Your poem is superb, Sue. Love the reference to the phoenix – reminds me of The Phoenix and the Carpet by E. Nesbit.
