Warmth. A Photography and Poetry Prompt.

Warmth. A Photography and Poetry Prompt.

This week’s prompt word is ‘warmth’ and believe me, it really is one I need in this cold and blustery weather.

The photograph I have decided to use for this week’s prompt is one I took when we were on holiday during the summer at Brean Sands. The girls and I had had a wonderful day and we decided to take a walk down to the beach to take a look at the sunset. The girls played as I took photos of this beautiful warm sky. This is a layered HDR image of 3 photos fused into one – just to make sure I could capture all of the colours.

Of course, you don’t have to look at warmth from a weather perspective and I have chosen something much closer to home for my poetry. That is the warmth and love of being at home with your family. There is a recording of my reading just underneath.


It’s in the glow of the fire
It’s in my mug of tea
It’s the cosy jumper
The warmth surrounding me

It’s cuddling up on the sofa
It’s right there in your smile
It’s reflecting in your eyes
The warmth there all the while

It’s me being there for you
Its you being there for me
It really can’t be beaten
The warmth of family

    Warmth is such a great choice of word for the season. The words you have written are so evocative and I can picture myself in that fireside moment. Beautiful X

    That’s lovely! It’s funny how our poems are a little similar this week, I swear I didn’t read yours first lol x

    I love it, having you read it too is a great idea and adds so much to your poetry. I will write something using this weeks prompt & add a photo.
    Don’t think I am brave enough to add a reading with my old scouse accent though, haha x

      Thanks so much Lorraine 🙂 I look forward to reading yours – and I have to say that I love the scouse accent! I bet it would sound great x

    Just wonderful. You’re right. There is no kind of warmth that beats the warmth of being around the ones you love the most. Thank you for hosting x #prose4t
