Thursday photo prompt: Spectral #writephoto

#writephoto

Every Thursday at noon GMT, I publish one of my photos as a writing prompt.  If you know where the photo was taken, please keep it to yourself until the challenge is closed and I usually share something about the place during the round-up.

Throughout the week I will feature as many of the responses here on the Daily Echo as space allows. Every Thursday at 10 a.m. GMT, a full round-up of posts will be published linking back to the original posts of contributors.

You can find all last week’s entries in the weekly round-up. Please visit and read the stories and poems and explore the sites of their writers. I will feature as many contributions as I can on the blog during the week.

Use the image below as inspiration to create a post on your own blog… poetry, prose, humour… light or dark, whatever you choose, by noon (GMT)  Wednesday 19th September and link back to this post with a pingback to be included in the round-up.  There is no word limit and no style requirements, except to keep it fairly family friendly.

Please note that I may not have internet access for several days so reblogs and comments may be delayed. All posts will be featured in the round-up on Thursday!

If you are unsure of how to create a pingback, Hugh has an excellent tutorial here.

Pingbacks need to be manually approved, so either check back to make sure that the pingback has appeared or simply copy and paste your link into the comments section of this post.

Feel free to use #writephoto logo or include the prompt photo in your post if you wish or you can replace it with one of your own to illustrate your work. Don’t forget to use the #writephoto hashtag in your title so your posts can be found.

Have fun!

    I finally got a chance to sit down and write something for this photo. I really like this – it looks like a scene from a scary movie made in the 1930s. Anyway, my take is very different from a scary movie filmed in the 1930s… https://trentsworldblog.wordpress.com/2018/09/14/spectral-writephoto/

    Greetings Sue,
    Not sure if my pingback worked and will add my post here. It was a heartfelt poem and wanted you to see it. Lots of love to you.💗

    “If I could make the earth and my dreams the same.” Higher by Creed

    Mater

    I pray,

    in silence,

    from dawn to dusk,

    drawn by mists that,

    shroud my heart,

    my castle,

    as I look upon,

    a grain of sand,

    the mist dissipates,

    into sunshine,

    ephemeral,

    and yielding,

    to passing eons,

    as tears,

    melt the gloom,

    beyond the cliffs,

    to mater,

    the sea of being,

    the last strand of dna fades,

    the Sun,

    I Am,

    with Love
