Photo prompt round up – Window #writephoto



Within or without
Perception or perspective
Where I am standing
A frozen vision falters
Defining separation


Poised transparency
Divides to illuminate
Inner and outer
States of being held apart
Illusory barriers


Fragrance of roses
Grown beneath a sunlit sky
Calling me onwards
From within I am without
Wider horizons beckon


The photo for this week’s prompt was taken at Haddon Hall in Derbyshire, during our recent visit. I have written a lot about this place recently and thinking about its windows and my own nudged me down a few other penned pathways.

Thank you so much to everyone who took part this week… and there are a lot of you! Thank you especially to those who have not taken part in the challenge before but who have joined us in the new year.

As always, I have shared as many contributions as I could during the week, but the sheer volume of entries this week made it impossible to reblog all of them!  I try and reblog as they come in, until I run out of space. 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!
