Photo prompt round-up: Offering #writephoto


Become the vessel

Offering an open heart

No will but to serve

Give shape to what is given

Be shaped by the love you hold


The photo for this week’s prompt is from an old painting of mine… an experiment with oils. I was fairly pleased with how it worked and put it on the bookshelf to dry. When my son came to visit, he actually asked for the painting… it reminded him of a book we had both loved and he wanted to take it home. That was the highest praise I could have asked for and meant more than the lucrative commissions I was getting at the time.

A few weeks later, he was in a coma and fighting for his life. This little painting that he loved sat on the table beside his bed in the high dependency unit, throughout all the months he was in hospital, along with photos of family and friends and all the small things that might help him remember who he was when he woke… and it stayed there when, miraculously, he did.

It now hangs on the wall beside his bed, a constant reminder of a journey through darkness to light.


Thank you to everyone who took part, visited or reblogged the posts or left comments for their authors.

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… and I can miss things… 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!

Thank you to all Contributors!
