Flesh on Bone

Joshua Tree National Park
California, United States of America

Lifeless Zones

at a glance or three
that’s all you’ll see
no Flesh on Bones
impulse – to flee

look past the Stones
beyond the Bones
there’s more within
this Wasteland’s Groans

Scruffy, yes.
life nonetheless
in desert Brown
Green finds ingress

Muscle, Sinew
on the Bone
and stronger than it looks

like Stone.

Stone ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #241

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.

To participate:

  • Use any title you like
  • Your response can be words and/or images
  • You may use my image in your post, or any image you have created
  • Mention that you are responding to the Pic and a Word Challenge
  • Add a link to this post in your response
