Pic and a Word Challenge #28 ~ Clinging

Lights in the trees, Stanley Park, Near the Hollow Tree, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
Challenge #28 ~ Clinging
This word for week’s Pic and a Word Challenge is Clinging, along with this photograph of backlit tree limbs in the rain.

The Pic and a Word Challenge is a weekly creativity prompt offered Sunday mornings.

Each week I provide a photograph of mine along with a single word. The challenge? Use the pic and/or word as points of inspiration to create something — a photograph, a painting, prose, poetry, fiction, non-fiction, longread or just a few words. You are welcome to use these two elements (photograph and word) literally, thematically or metaphorically. If you create both images and words, all the better.

Learn how to participate in this week’s challenge here.

Happy creating!
