Life. A Photography and Poetry Prompt.

Life. A Photography and Poetry Prompt.

This week’s photography and poetry prompt is quite an apt one for me. It is ‘Life’ and I can certainly say that mine has been anything but boring! I have had many people come in and out of my life for numerous different reasons – some more poignant than others. There is a saying ‘People come into your life for a season, a reason or a lifetime’. So very true. My life has certainly been a challenge this week.

My image was one taken at BritMums in the advanced Define Your Design workshop with Lucy at Capture by Lucy. I love the colours in this and I really like the saying. Sometimes it really is the simplest things in life.

My poem speaks for itself.



Life it throws you curve balls
Life it throws you a line
Life can have its downfalls
Life is better with sunshine

Life means that you breathe in
Life means you breathe out
Life can mean that you sin
Life makes you want to just shout

Life can give you an invisible scar
Life it can test your core
Life can take you so very far
Life can leave you wanting much more

Life it is rich and is varied
Life puts your soul to the test
Life, oh before I am buried
Please let me live it my best

    So perfectly put Vicky. Great way to start each line too, emphasising that life really is all these things, I think 🙂

    What a beautiful poem, and it certainly sums up life in such a succint, truthful and positive way. I love your photo as well (isn’t Lucy the best?). It’s beautiful and compliments your poem perfectly. Thank you for hosting this week, Victoria. Hope you’re having a great day 🙂
