Photo prompt round-up: Calm #writephoto

A moment of peace
A perfect draught of beauty
Calm amid the storms
Stepping out of time to breathe
Insubstantial as the wind

The photo for this week’s prompt was taken a couple of years ago, near Nether Winchendon, from a bridge over the Thame… not the Thames but its baby sister into which the little river flows. It was a chilly, wintry morning,  with brilliant blue skies. The ground was saturated and the stream high from recent flooding. It was the calm after the storm. It is a spot where I love to watch the kites at dawn, with the distant line of the Chilterns as a backdrop.

Thank you so much to everyone who took part this week! Once again, there were too many reblog all of the posts, but they are all listed below, so please click on the links to read them and leave a comment for the author! Thank you too, to everyone who reblogged the prompt, round up and the individual resposes!

Please remember too, that if you don’t link your post to the prompt or leave me a comment, I won’t know about your post! Hoever, pingbacks do not always come through and I can miss things too, so 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 below and I will add it to the list.

A new prompt will be published later today. I will reblog as many contributions as space and time allows, as they come in… and all of them will be featured in the round-up on Thursday.

As there are usually too many contributions to reblog all of them every week, and so that we can get to know their writers, I would like to invite all writephoto regulars to come and introduce themselves on the blog as my  guest! ‘Regulars’ does not mean you have to take part every week… Click here for details

Come and join in!

    Love your poem Sue, I like the way the roll call of entrants looks like a Etheree or shaped poem …was that by chance or design either way it looks good 💜
