Every Thursday at noon GMT, I publish one of my photos as a writing prompt. If you know where the photo was taken, please keep it to yourself until the challenge is closed and I usually share something about the place during the round-up.
Use the image and title provided as inspiration to create a post on your own blog… poetry, prose, humour… light or dark, whatever you choose, by noon (GMT) on Wednesday each week, and link back to the promt post with a pingback to be included in the round-up. There is no word limit and no style requirements, except to keep it fairly family friendly and not passionately political.
All posts will be featured in the round-up on Thursday.

There is nothing like a stroll through the quiet wooded sanctuaries and state parks. Before walking became very painful for me I used to stroll through the woods and when with a friend he would point out different things in nature to me. We came across deer many times and they didn’t always run away.
I miss the daily walks, but I can’t walk for more than a few minutes now and walking through the forest is dangerous with the roots for my footing. I have taken a few spills. I can’t chance being alone and walking in these areas.
One day we spotted a deer up ahead. He was bounding through the woods and suddenly he disappeared. We continued walking and suddenly we came upon him with an arrow in his side. This was a fresh kill and we anxiously looked around as we headed out of that area quickly before we became the next target.
