Weekly Photo Challenge “Forward – The Challenge” #poetry #photography #philosophy #parenting


Ripples of Life

Take this stone

throw it

create a beginning

moving outward

fluid concentricity

touches more points

as it moves

light catcher

shape tracker

moves images

a sunken piece of mass

inspires me

to move

forward

As you  move forward what is it in the past that propelled you? Fear, a challenge, a friend, an enemy, money, debt…?

Was your move forward physical, spiritual?

Alone I never feared change or forward motion. For me “Forward” is a march toward adventure. As a mother, that move forward presents a different challenge. The ripple of the circle in the water reminds me of the move forward. It’s a challenge  when it involves others (those we love). There are edges of the circle (consequences) I cannot see or foresee.   The best I can do is hope (and pray) that those I love will weather the forward moving ripples in their paper boat of life.

HOW do the ripples inspire you???

WordPress’ Weekly Photo Challenge: In a new post specifically created for this challenge, share a picture that says FORWARD to you.

Perhaps it’s a path you yourself have taken, the building where you’re starting a great new job, or the curve of your partner’s pregnant belly. It could be an image that shows a physical move, or something that evokes a major life change. We look forward (ha!) to your interpretations.

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. In 2019, we have an exciting project. We are working with a team developing elementary curriculum for African children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children who want to learn. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2012 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the (quiet) originator of the idea and co-producer of One Stop Poetry. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - thanks for stopping by.
