Pauline of ‘Memories are Made of This’ has nominated me to do the 5 photos, 5 stories. So my intention its to stick to a self-imposed theme of ‘a sense of place’, and see how I can interpret this in different ways.
For day 2, I have gone back over quarter of a century for this. The image is scanned in from a slide, and I shall let my poem do the talking (One I have revisited and polished).
Summer blue sky and vivid light,
white stars dance sparkling on the sea,
our boat cleaves through the water.
At the island we step lightly
through that forbidding arch,
into pure, tragic melancholy.
In the hushed air
echoes of distant voices
from long-stilled lives.
All the past
present in these ruins.
And now I need to fulfil the second part of this challenge, and invite another blogger to take part. Today I would like to nominate Viveka of My Guilty Pleasures, who has a great zest for life, loves travel, food, music and taking pictures wherever she goes.
There’s no obligation, Viveka – have fun if you want to join in!
The challenge is to just “post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or a short paragraph and each day nominate another blogger for the challenge”.
