Guarded #writephoto

Sue’s #WritePhoto prompt for this week:

I can't get out

Can't see a way out

Unable to reach out

I might just see a way out

I will get out

The Sue Vincent Rodeo Classic with The Carrot Ranch

Sue Vincent is one of those special bloggers that inspires people all over the world. Readers have long been galvanized by her posts about mythology, about ancient ruins and medieval churches, and her daily #midnighthaiku. Even more have participated in and grown as a result of her #writephoto prompts. In addition to posting her prompts, Sue has tirelessly supported other bloggers by sharing others’ responses to her 19,000 and counting followers.

Recently, Sue has been faced with a new and difficult challenge: lung cancer. You can follow her blog to find out more directly from her. The Covid pandemic has served not only to pose a specific threat to a person with a severe respiratory illness, but it has caused loss of human connection through self-imposed quarantine.

Now it’s time for Sue to receive something back from the community she’s been a cornerstone of for a decade. Let’s bring the Rodeo into Sue’s house through her computer, and let’s come together with hearts full of joy. Join us for the Sue Vincent Rodeo Classic at the Carrot Ranch – a contest, parade, and celebration all in one!
There are many ways to participate. One is to visit the prompt image, “Hidden”, at the Carrot Ranch. The prompt image and entry form will go live on Monday, February 1st, 2021. Enter a flash or a poem by Friday, February 19th, 2021, and you could win either $100 or a copy of one of Sue’s books. The form will allow you to give a small donation for Sue and her family, and a link can be found on the contest page. The winning entries will be announced at the Carrot Ranch on March 22nd, 2021.

If you’re not ready to rodeo, there’s always the “Parade”. Reblog one of Sue’s posts from any of her sites (Daily Echo or France and Vincent) with a comment about why you found it special. Follow her blogs. Read one of her books, then leave reviews where you can. Several people are already gearing up for the parade – so feel free to check out other people’s blogs for suggestions.

Also, go ahead and reblog, tweet, Facebook, or somehow otherwise share the contest! 99 word literary art is a fantastic way to celebrate a blogging hero and very deserving person.

Saddle up, everyone! It’s time for a Carrot Ranch Rodeo like none ever held before. The Sue Vincent Rodeo Classic begins on Monday, February 1st, and it’ll be a TUFF prompt to fit within 99 words.Β 
See you at the Ranch, buckaroos!

On a personal note, I have known Sue for most of my blogging life, around six years. We met a few years back, too, at the Annual Bloggers Bash.

What a lovely lady.

Sue has been a great support, and champion of my own blog and writing over that time, and a huge inspiration to me, too. I was devastated to hear of her diagnosis, but her positivity, and attitude towards the whole situation has been amazing.

Please, if you can, try and join in, in some way. Come on, Peeps, let’s pay it forward!

Returning #writephoto

Sue is back with her #Writephoto prompt after an enforced break. We are so happy to see you back with your prompt, Sue. Gently does it!

So the prompt is RETURN along with the photo:

of normality
That's all we seek.
of affection
That's what we need
of common sense
That Politicians lack
of our lives
That's what we miss

Soar #writephoto

Sue’s #WritePhoto prompt:

Spread wide
Soaring high
Above all else
Above suppression
Above small mindedness
Above the criticism
Free from other's expectations
No shackles able to hold me back
Gliding at my own pace towards success

Secret #writephoto

Sue’s #WritePhoto prompt this week:

Can I tell you a secret?
Do you promise that you'll keep it?
Words I have not told a soul
Thoughts keeping me from feeling whole
Feelings trapped inside my mind
Oh, the words I have to find
This secret needs to be set free
Will you help unburdon me?
