Even stone is moved
Shaped by a fluid caress
Stasis balanced by motion
Perfect partners in the dance
Siren call to greater life
Being in stillness
Deep within the shadowed darkness
Tides of hope and courage rise
The photo for this week’s prompt was taken on the little isle of Portland off the south coast of England. I was there several years ago as part of a trip to Dorset, in the days before we posted much about our journeys on the blog, though this picture was taken on an earlier trip, when my eldest son was still living in Weymouth in an appartment that looked out onto the sea. Life was very different for him then, before the attack that left him for dead in an alley. But even such trauma cannot touch the core of stillness where inner strength resides.
Thank you so much to everyone who took part this week and to everyone who reblogged the prompt, round up and the individual responses! A new prompt will be published later today. As always, 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 next Thursday.
All the posts are listed below, so please click on the links below to read them and leave a comment for the author!
Pingbacks do not always come through… 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.
An invitation to writephoto writers…
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 writers to come and introduce themselves on the blog as my guest! Click here for details.
Come and join in!
Many thanks to this week’s contributors:
with a stand-alone part two of a story… part one is here.
