Photo prompt round-up – Signs – #writephoto

The photo for this week’s prompt was taken in Derbyshire. It is the sign for the oddest of pubs, where stepping through the door is like stepping back in time by a hundred years or more…and spending time there takes you out of time altogether.

As always, there were wonderful poems and stories and I would like to thank  everyone who took part. I think I managed to share all the contributions this week, but 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 as they come in and all contributions will be featured in the round-up on Thursday.

If you have written a post for this challenge and it does not appear in the round-up, please leave a link to your post in the comments and I will add it to the list.

Come and join in!




Sinister shadows

A harvest of need or greed

Dark-clawed hands that grasp

Nobility sacrificed

Winter wears a lifeless crown

    Sadly the lines in your poem “Nobility sacrificed

    Winter wears a lifeless crown” resonate heavily with me. Beautiful poem though.💜

    Perhaps it is a portal…with that entryway, it’s certainly possible! (K)


  6. Your poem reflects my reaction to the image perfectly, Sue. A stark poem.
