#HAWMC: Blossom Expectation
This post continues the month-long series called the Health Activist Writer’s Month Challenge (#HAWMC) created by WEGO Health. Today’s writing prompt: Ekphrasis Post. Go to flickr.com/explore and write a post inspired by the image. Can you link it to your health focus?
I must admit, the fact that this photograph was titled provided a little bit of bias and prompted specifically what type of correlation I would draw. But, it is such a wonderful capture who cares about the bias. These flowers are on the verge of blossoming and this is a common but apt metaphor for our health and our lives. (That is one of the reasons this blog is named–enBloom, but i digress.) I know all too well, violence steals lives often just before they have the chance to fully blossom, if you will. Homicide is the second greatest cause of death for 10-24 year olds. These are families destroyed and life milestones that will never come to pass. What a great loss of so much human potential.
