Showcase Writing – Photo prompt round-up: Worn – Published by Sue Vincent (Daily Echo)

Sue Vincent's Daily Echo

Facelift or healing

Disguising the deepest wounds

New replaces old

Time’s inexorable march

Writes inescapable tales

*

The photo for this week’s prompt was taken in Bakewell, Derbyshire, a few years ago. The worn steps are typical of many older homes and are a poignant reminder of how many feet have passed that way and how many stories the old stones have witnessed. I was particularly struck by the incongruity of the two new steps that have replaced the originals, their surfaces as yet unmarked by time and experience.

Ride the tide of peace

Seek the cause and find the way

A path leading home

Showcase Writing – ‘Photo prompt round-up: Bells #writephoto’ – Featured by Sue Vincent (Daily Echo)

Sue Vincent's Daily Echo

Beneath the beech trees

A magical wonderland

Delights the senses

Fragrance of heaven on earth

Spirits rising in the blue

*

The photo for this week’s prompt was taken at Ashridge on May Day a few years ago, when I took my son to see the bluebells in flower in the wood. That was a truly magical May Day… but then, there are few things more magical than an English bluebell wood in spring… their beauty goes hand in hand with the perfume that fills the air.

Spotlight Writing – ‘Photo prompt round-up: Crown #writephoto’ – feafured by Sue Vincent (Daily Echo)

Sue Vincent's Daily Echo

Many tread the path

Four conceal a hidden gate

Opening the way

Beyond the earthly quarters

Spirit wears the crown of crowns

The photo for this week’s prompt was taken at Duddo Stone Circle. Only four of the stones are visible from the approach, though five of the seven remain standing. The circle is also known as the Singing Stones.
