Light and Shadow Challenge

This Haiku is based on Light and Shadow’s :   Welcome to Monday 06/13/2014 and the Monday Challenge (picture below) as well as Haiku Friday!  —- Tessa

Are you ready to start the week?  Below you will find two prompts, one a picture and one a quote. Have a look and see what story they inspire you to tell and then go for it – in 500 words or less! You can use one or both and you don’t need to refer to them in your writing, just follow that spark of inspiration whether it is fact, fiction or poetry.  You have until next Sunday at noon GMT so go for it.  Have fun, write some stuff and then use the link underneath to let people see it.

Here is the picture prompt.  Please credit it if you use it on your own blog.

Here is the quote:   You should got to a pear tree for pears, not an elm. —Publilius Syrus ( ~100 BC) , Maxims

It is really encouraging to have comments on your work and it can give people a real lift. Sometimes it is nice to just let someone know that their writing hit the spot. Sometimes you can give a little help with a suggestion or hint.  Please comment on the other writers as much as you feel able. The rule with that is the quote from WB Yeats, ‘I have spread my dreams under your feet; Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.’  These posts are someone’s dreams.
