This week’s prompt is sheer wonder. Immediately I think of childhood the first time you look through a telescope, your first visit to an aquarium, waking up on Christmas morning, ball games etc. Of course adults can experience such moments as well riding in a hot air balloon, reaching the summit after a long hike, visiting a foreign land, viewing a meteor shower, riding in a helicopter, scuba diving the list is endless. Moments of sheer wonder don’t have to coincide with major events, looking at the ocean, taking a walk, reading about a new technology, listening to a TED talk we can experience these extraordinary moments in our ordinary lives as well!

Cool prompt, made me remember a dream I had recently!! 🙂 🙂
I love dreams! These prompts come curtsey of Planescape Torment and the sensory stones lol Not all my prompts do but this series does
Please ignore Limbo I accidentally submitted it again it was for last week’s prompt! I went with Crux because imagination and love fill me with wonder
Well…it was a long time ago – fifty years + when as a child I first saw an escalator, moving steps…took my breath away…sheer wonder … 😀
That is such a beautiful and innocent memory =) My own daughter gets very excited about escalators
Reblogged this on Traces of the Soul and commented:
What a lovely prompt to make me think of many wonders I’ve seen…which shall I choose??
=) Can’t wait to see
I have shared photos of one recently with lovely photos, so I am share one of my childhood…those are fun to relive in our minds…It might be free verse rather than poem though. I have so much on my mind lately with work today.
Free verse is perfectly fine =)
Beautiful Image. 🙂 And I also love TED talks – they make one wonder and pushes them to take some responsible action. 🙂
They do I find them very inspiring =)
This illustration and memory are beautiful. I love the swinging child in the aquarium. I loved to swing as a child and still do! 🙂
Me too =) Swinging always brings out the child in me
Yes yes it surely does and I so need that sometimes! 🙂 Life gets too serious! We have to remember to play! hehe
We do I have a small child so I get to do so quite a lot haha
My older brother was a blast for me, admired everything he did !
That is so sweet Leovi =)
Trying to feel awe with macro photography, often succeed
Tryin to share it 5 times a week, but I don’t know whether that leads to the similar awe-itude.
Well I feel awe when looking at nature and at beautiful photographs and your photographs are stunning =)
thank you. I realize that all these ‘thank you-s’ keep me going.
Part of the awe (perhaps even 90%) is in the process … however … that seems almost impossible to share.
That is hard to share I can’t share the joy I get in writing only the product
Here is a Tanka for your prompt:
