Photo prompt round-up – Eye – #writephoto


Above and below
Reflected realities
Borders undefined
How can I know where I stand
Or on which side of vision


Do I stand in earth
Looking out from hollow hills
Or am I a dream
A projection of the soul
Beyond an amorphous Veil


What does it matter
I am where presence requires
Facing destiny
Riding the current of life
Subjective reality


The photo for this week’s prompt was taken in Derbyshire at the Derwent Valley Reservoirs, where a village was drowned and where the famous ‘Dambusters’ Squadron trained. The valley holds many hidden treasures still, both natural and man-made. The reflections beneath the bridge here were just perfect on this visit, and there was no way of telling where they began or ended.

As always, I would like to thank  everyone for their contibutions. I love seeing how many different stories and poems can be born from one image. Most have been reblogged through the week, but all the posts are listed below, please click on the links below to read them 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  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!
