His Fathers Son

It was around that age When young soldiers begin To grab hold of the world around them in hopes of moulding their wings, That he was met with silence. That echoes cackled, Crackling against the walls Of his mother's house, Whispering secrets that speak with The knowledge of a world that Lived Before the empty … Continue reading His Fathers Son

Breaking the Levy

I found him, Hiding behind a banner of his newest constructions, scared of his own nature. Why did the child feel he had to be old before his time? Castrated by the perception of perfection, let's lay that myth to rest! He has volleyed so much life, yet let his palms soften and grow sterile … Continue reading Breaking the Levy

Sunrise

My early call to rise rings out at the same time ever morning, 5 am. Every morning, at 5 am, I rock myself out of a shallow sleep, gather the scattered pieces of my focus and brace myself, ready to face the budding day at its root. I loathed dawn for so long, returning to it … Continue reading Sunrise

Writing 201, Assignment 8: Ode – Ode to my Journal

  I have broken the flow. As it stands, today, I am a day behind on Writing 201. Here is yesterdays assignment, better late than never. Another day, another assignment.

Writing 201, Assignment 7: Poem Prose – Finger Painting

Assignment seven, you were a cruel mistress. You came in the form of Poem Prose, and asked me to weave a piece with a prompt absolutely ripe with possibilities, "Fingers". Alliteration was covered earlier one in Writing 201, and the vowels have now been offered a chance to enjoy their share of repetition. I'm aware … Continue reading Writing 201, Assignment 7: Poem Prose – Finger Painting
