Photo Prompts: Spanish Lace Photo Play 2


spanish lace photo play photo prompt

Special thanks to all our photographers and poets who participated in last week’s poetry and photo prompts. Images and words, that together, hinted and tugged at the mystery of nature. Here’s part of a poem by Richard that we felt paired well with a few of our photos:

We are lace, of invisible Plaiting
and densest Cordonette, Tallied
in the darkness to make a light,
fractal in a fabric, on the edges of eternity.

—Richard Maxson

Be sure to check out the rest of our favorite highlights from each participant on the Photo Play Pinterest board. And keep clicking and/or playing with words.

NOTE TO POETS: Looking for your Monday prompt? On Photo Play days, it’s right here. Choose a photo and use it to jumpstart a poem!

    Love this, Richard – especially “fractal in a fabric, on the edges of eternity”. So much light in those few words.

    I was not very popular in my house this morning as I stood with the door wide open, hanging 10 on the iced over sill to snap this-

    she spins
    and grins
    has you pinned
    in icy lace

    swallow fate
    and wait
