I do love Sue’s photo prompts – her photos are so evocative, and she gets such a wide range of responses in different styles and genres. My response this week is… well, I guess it’s sort of a poem. I don’t fancy myself as any sort of poet, though, so perhaps it’s more, these are the words that came to me when I saw this image.
Crack and snap
Of leaves underfoot,
Moss cool on my tattered skin.
The journey has been long,
And I a traveller
Through stars and time and shattered woodland
To this place where branches twist,
And stones tumble.
As I kneel, humbled.
At journey’s end.

What a gorgeous photo and a great piece of writing from you to go with it.
Thanks, Esther – I was just saying to someone else that Sue chooses such great photos for her prompts. And as for the words, they just came to me, so I’m really glad you liked them – thank you 🙂
Wow this is stunningly beautiful, and I love the rhythm to it and your choice of words. Fantastic poem. 🙂
Thanks, Ellis, that’s so kind of you to say x
