For today’s prompt, we’re going to write ekphrastic poetry–or poetry based off another piece of art. In the past, I’ve provided paintings, but today, I’m picking photographs (for something a little different). You may use one of the images below or choose your own.

I was inspired to write a poem for each picture – but when it came to my catch up PAD write, I chose the 1st picture and wrote a couple of versions of a poem called ‘Tipping Point’.

My only ‘free’ evening


I was rather late home from work again today and now have a long list of things to do online and on the laptop before I can chill out, wear PJ’s and hit the hay!

Sleep should really be on the top of the list if I am going to survive the rest of the week!

I need to do my NaNo write

Catch up with posts in Blogland (I have given myself the week off challenges as I have no time to write for any)

Then I need to prepare classes for tomorrow – have tea and chill out!
