Bold. A Photography and Poetry Prompt.

Bold. A Photography and Poetry Prompt.

For a number of reasons I find that this week’s prompt word ‘bold’ extremely appropriate.

Bold has two meanings – 

  • (of a person, action, or idea) showing a willingness to take risks; confident and courageous.
    “a bold attempt to solve the crisis”
  • (of a colour, design, or shape) having a strong, vivid, or clear appearance.
    “a coat with bold polka dots”

Due to personal reasons I have found myself having to be the former in dealing with various issues that have arisen this week. This has caused me to be a bit quieter on the blogging front than I normally am. I have to say that I find it really strange when people from my past – who don’t actually know me anymore – assume that I am acting in a certain way and letting them wind me up or upset me when I have (believe it or not!) moved on and got a life. Although, they don’t appear to have done! 

My photo this week looks at the second meaning. Last week, my mum and I visited a lovely restaurant and tea shop in Woking called ‘Bills’. We sat at a table in the window and I turned around and saw this. I absolutely love the big bold colours and beautiful chairs. The purple and red look great together.

Bold

Confident courageous and valiant as can be
You can try your best to break me but I won’t let it be

I’m stronger now than ever, you have no idea 
You can try to intimidate me but I don’t feel that fear
 
I now have my own life, I’ve moved up and I’ve moved on
You think I care what you think – that feeling has long gone
 
Why can’t you leave it in the past, this has grown so old
But I will remain undaunted, stand up and be bold

    Fab poem Vic, strong words from a strong lady. You tell it like it is and I love that. You are an extremely bold lady. Wishing you all the best with overcoming the recent incident and blast from the past #pocolo

    Such a lovely poem, and such a strong word, sometimes we all need to be bold, when we’d rather be timid that is for sure πŸ™‚

    Lovely poem. You are strong. Your strength lies in your family, in those bonds you share with Grace and Ross. You are so right to be the one keeping her head high. Much better than moaning or crying about it. You go, girl!

    Love your photo – makes me just want to go and sit there and relax for a bit. Your poem is such a strong and empowering one – and fits perfectly with your theme of bold. So sorry to hear that you’re having a difficult time but sounds like you are doing a great job of standing your ground and being assertive.

    What a beautiful and bold picture indeed! Love the colors combinations that pop right out of the picture and those chairs look so comfortable! I hope all is well now with your situation from your past. Your words are very empowering and show just how much you’ve stood up to this person/thing that you’ve encountered this week.
