Photo prompt round-up – Thaw #writephoto



A pale land shrouded
Shivers in the winter chill
Far from the hearthfire
Those who wander find themselves
Following their own footprints


In muffled silence
Virginal beauty unveils
A verdant treasure
An ever-present promise
Hidden by a frozen pall


Cold winter’s thrall
Softly obliterated
Heart to heart calling
Between waking and slumber
In the embrace of the sun


The photo for this week’s prompt was taken in Cumbria, on a day when lunacy got the upper hand and I took the little sports car that was my pride and joy back then, out to play in the snowy hills of the wild heart of England.

Thank you so much to everyone who took part this week… an amazing number, considering it is the holiday season!

As always, I have shared as many contributions as I could during 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. 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!
