Welcome to the weekly #writephoto prompt!

This week’s prompt is a post with a difference – our first guest photo!

A great big thank you to Sadje over at Keep it Alive – for agreeing to be the featured photo this month. What a beautiful photo to get us started too.

Lake – Image by Sadje

For visually challenged writersthe image shows a lake surrounded by trees and a mountain range in the distance. On the lake edge, you can see a lonesome log floating and a grassy flowered edge.


Is it the blue of the sky
With white clouds skudding by
Or the blue of the lake
With the white flower brake.
Reflections tease us
Reflections please us.
Is it up or is it down
Is it a smile or a frown.
Is the log floating or flying
Are those trees or rushes.
Reflections tease us
Reflections please us.
Ripples spreading from the to the center
Waters so clear you want to enter
Will you sink or will you swim
Or will you fly or dive within.
Reflections tease us
Reflections please us.

    What a wonderful poem, Willow! I’ve missed you, my friend! I got super sick with my 2nd vaccine and haven’t been very social. 🙂
