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

Sue Vincent's Daily Echo

Held in Nature’s hand

Vision clouded by knowledge

Mysteries remain

Beyond the realms of logic

Heart and spirit find their wings

The photo for this week’s prompt was taken near Swinside stone circle in Cumbria. The circle, tucked away in a hidden valley between the Lake District and the sea, is one of the most beautifully placed sites we have seen… and one of the best preserved too.

Showcase Poetry – ‘Clouded’ – A poem by Jez Farmer – Published by Sue Vincent (Daily Echo)

Sue Vincent's Daily Echo

Background: Every Thursday Sue Vincent hosts the #writephoto prompt. This week’s prompt can be found here.

My form is the acrostic
This one went a bit dark on me but I like it

Covering peaks in mystery
Lingering, waiting, time stands still
Only for an eerie pause of thought

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

Sue Vincent's Daily Echo

Manifested dream

The shores of reality

Painted in pastels

Masked facade of fantasy

Reveals the dreamer’s laughter

The photo for this week’s prompt was taken at Portmeirion, Wales, during one of our summer workshop weekends a few years ago.

Portmeirion is the strange and colourful village created by the architect and conservationist, Sir Clough Williams-Ellis. Tucked away on the Welsh coast, at first glance it resembles a picture-postcard Italian village, and yet all is not what it seems… and many things are far more than they seem.

Williams-Ellis sought to bring humankind and Nature together, illustrating with his architecture the ideal and harmonious relationship that should exist between us. Many of the buildings and statuary are recycled from other, far-flung places…and, if you get there before the crowds and have the place to yourself, it is a place so full of tantalising mysteries that a single visit could…

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.
