Thursday photo prompt: Yearning #writephoto


Welcome to this weekโ€™s writephoto prompt. If you know where the prompt photo was taken, please keep it to yourself until the prompt has closed so that imaginations can play without preconceptions ๐Ÿ™‚

Use the image below as inspiration to create a post on your own blogโ€ฆ poetry, prose, humourโ€ฆ light or dark, whatever you choose, by noon (GMT)ย ย Wednesday 5th Juneย andย link back to this post with a pingback to be included in the round-up.ย  There is no word limit and no style requirements, except to keep it fairly family friendly.

**Please note that many people on WordPress are having problems with pingbacks not getting through, so please also leave a comment on this post, linking back to your response to the prompt so that I know you have posted. **

For visually challenged writers, the image shows a channel of water flowing out to sea, with the sun reflecting on the water.

All posts will be featured in the round-up on Thursday June 6th at 10am GMT, linking back to the original posts of contributors. Throughout the week I will feature as many of the responses here on the Daily Echo as space allows and (more or less) in the order in which they come in.

You can find allย last weekโ€™s entriesย inย the weekly round-up.ย 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.

Please link your post to this by creating a pingback. If you are unsure of how to create a pingback, Hugh has an excellent tutorial here.

Pingbacks need to be manually approved, and many people are having problems with them not getting through at all, so either check back to make sure that the pingback has appeared or simply copy and paste your linkย 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. Donโ€™t forget to use theย #writephoto hashtag in your title so your posts can be found.


An invitation

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! โ€˜Regularsโ€™ does not mean you have to take part every weekโ€ฆ Click here for details
