Open. A Photography and Poetry Prompt

Open. A Photography and Poetry Prompt

This week’s photography and poetry prompt is the word ‘open’ and I knew exactly what I wanted to write about. 

Firstly the image is a panoramic one of Soar Mill Cove – definitely the great wide open.

This week’s prose is not an easy subject but I think that tackling difficult things is part of what us bloggers do best.

This Saturday marks the second anniversary of our first miscarriage. Last year, up until the 3rd of October, I felt like I was on a downward spiral but the first anniversary saw me buy a special orchid – that now sits on my windowsill and blooms beautifully – and helped me to pick myself back up again and shake off the awful feeling of down. 

I would like to say that this is not a sad post. Just one of a memory and I really don’t want people to think I am upset. It just marks another milestone in my life.

I wanted to mark that milestone this year by sharing ‘Open Prose to an Angel’. I was so pleased with the video format last week that I once again set it to some of my photos. This week’s photos are all ones of nature that I have taken over the past year.

    I believe in marking all sorts of occasions – bad and good – but I guess only when the time is right. Thanks for sharing this lovely memory. #pocolo

    I believe that angels watch over us and therefore I’m sure that yours is watching over you. Beautiful loving words xox

    Hi Victoria, that gave me goosies! There is nothing wrong with marking time, especially if those anniversaries mean so much to you. Loved your photographs too, they added to the poem.

    This was powerful, Victoria. I’m sorry for having to go through that, but your strength in moving forward is admirable. I can hear it in your voice when you read the poem, and it comes through in what you write in your blog and what you do for yourself, your family, and your readers as well.

    Thank you for sharing this and hosting us on Prose for Thought. It’s one of my favorite pieces from you so far. Hope you have a wonderful rest of the week.
