Spotlight Writing – Photo prompt round-up: Appointed #writephoto – published by Sue Vincent, (Daily Echo)

Sue Vincent's Daily Echo

Dark wings appointed

Gazing through realities

Separating ghosts

Timestreams mingle on the wind

Disentangled by watchers

*

The photo for this week’s prompt was taken on the edge of the moors in Derbyshire, long ago before lockdowns hampered travel. The path from here leads to the Barbrook complex of stone circles and burial fields, one on the very special places in that area that I would dearly love to revisit.

Spotlight Writing Challenge -Thursday photo prompt: Guarded #writephoto – Hosted by Sue Vincent (Daily Echo)

Sue Vincent's Daily Echo

Welcome to the new #writephoto prompt!

For five years, we did not miss a beat, and every week the stories, poems and artwork flew in to be shared here as part of the weekly photo prompt challenge.

That unbroken series of posts came to a halt when I fell seriously ill and felt that I could no longer commit to collating, reblogging and commenting on the very many posts that came in each week.

However, the prompt has been missed and many people have asked if we could start it again, but with a few small differences, in case I am not well enough to set up reblogs and round-up posts.

I can only say, well, okay, we started again last week so let’s see how it goes, for as long as we can 🙂

Please visit last week’s prompt or the round-up post to read all the contributions.

Spotlight Writing – Photo prompt round-up: Returning #writephoto – Published by Sue Vincent (Daily Echo)

Sue Vincent's Daily Echo

Which way leads you home

Backwards to where you began

Or moving onwards

Seeking a new adventure

In the landscape of the heart

*

The photo for this week’s prompt was taken on the moors of Yorkshire, near the Cow and Calf rocks at Ilkley some years ago. A place where part of my heart will always reside.

I liked this particular photo as it is difficult to be sure whether it is a man or a woman, which way they are walking…or what the mood might be. In fact, it was Stuart, looking out from the edge of the moors at dawn, ready to lead the Companions on a workshop weekend.

I am deeply touched by how many of you have immediately picked up the prompt where we left off in September when I fell ill. Thank you to everyone who took part, visited or reblogged the posts or…

Showcase Writing – Photo prompt round-up -‘Darknes’ – Published by Sue Vincent (Daily Echo)

Sue Vincent's Daily Echo

Ever-changing skies

Dark clouds touch the horizon

Unexpected grace

Landscape cast in high relief

Light shines against the shadows

The photo for this week’s prompt was taken over the moors of the Derbyshire Dales, when we were out exploring some of the ancient sites that abound there.

Showcase Writing – Photo prompt round-up – ‘Dream’ – Published by Sue Vincent (Daily Echo)

Sue Vincent's Daily Echo

Beauty of heart’s home

Haunting dream and memory

Heather in the blood

Endings and beginnings marked

Fragrance of honey lingers

*

The photo for this week’s prompt was taken on the moors, where Yorkshire meets Derbyshire. The heather is usually at its best mid-August… and I am hoping that I will be able to see it once more this year.
