PROMPT: WILD


A messy mop of wild curly red hair,
all I can see in the crowd of the fair,
it waves in the wind, high in the air
as she skips along without a care.

Final Poems

PROMPT: Open Prompt

Alliteration
Spencer spied seventeen silky scary spiders
Making super smooth salsa
Salsa so super
Santa supplied it
To sweet sisters
With salty scrumptious chips
Allusion
Buildings so tall and elegant
Double trouble they were in
Planes flying minutes apart
Flames flying higher than the sky
The pilots committed massive sin
Diction Statement
The tone of this poem is serious. It is talking about 9/11 which is a very serious topic. I used the words tall and elegant to describe the...

Through My Eyes

FREE WRITING


Amid the rising chaos of
the rain drumming against the
concrete slabs and the sound of wind
cracking the sky, 
there stands a 
welcome sight.
The kind that makes me 
willing to drown under
these grey clouds as long as it remains
mine to see.

Let me rise up against 
the world and share my mind
with those who will listen
and understand 
the burden of
my thoughts.
I will become the earth,
the sky, the oceans and seas.

Silence

FREE WRITING


The wordless book,
the painting without colour,
a faceless clock
and a map with no markings.
Silence.

Silence
A night without darkness and
the wolf has no echo.
Waterless oceans,
Tears without bitterness.

My Confession

FREE WRITING



It’s a portal and
I fall through it
every time; mind
frozen in the 
current thought,
the only thought
that sends me in
a flurry of panic
because the butterflies
in my stomach have
been replaced by
abominable monsters
who crave for my
mind to always be
weighed down 
by sickness; their
roaring and my
screams of suffering
form a draining
lullaby that drones on
and on. I don’t dare
blink or
yawn; thoughts of sleep
forbidden
but despite my...

One Second

FREE WRITING


That’s all it took
to feel fear,
conflict,
self-hatred
and loneliness 
that tried to
force me to my knees
and surrender:
one second.

One second
I had nothing 
and then I had
everything I needed:
courage,
confidence,
faith
and friendship 
that does not waver 
for even

One second. I was
immortal and 
fear did wage
war on me and
for one second
I felt myself slipping
beyond reach and in
one second I
became more than
I ever was;

Hi.

Hallo.
Aloha.

Bonjour.

Buenos dias.

All ways of saying the same thing: Hello. But it's not just hello, a meaningless word, tossed to the wind. No, it literally unlocks a world of new possibilities. By saying hi, you're not only greeting someone, but you're also opening a conversation and introducing yourself. You have the possibility of making a friend, finding true love, or, unfortunately, sometimes even gaining an enemy. So, always say hi with great...

An Astronomical Renaissance: The Second Space Race

PROMPT: Foreign Correspondent Competition

    The mid-twentieth century. The world ushers in the dawn of a new era - one of exploration and curiosity; of inspiration and innovation. A bold, intrepid mankind gazes beyond the greenery and comfort of Planet Earth and sets its eyes up into the dark, vast unknown. The world becomes polarized as two antithetical superpowers, one of democracy and the other of totalitarianism, rise to the great challenge of reaching far beyond into a world waiting to be uncovered. The space...

What He Left Behind

FREE WRITING

One year ago, he stepped from his front door for the last time.
He left behind many things:
a teddy bear for his daughter,
a love note for his wife,
a glass swan for his mother,
and a pat on the back for his father.
Now, the bear lay forgotten in the bottom of a chest,
its eyes scratched and dusty
and its fur worn away from nights spent fighting away nightmares.
Shoved to the back of her desk drawer, ...

Rich American Coffee

PROMPT: Invented Cartography

On the back of a pink napkin, stained with droplets of rich American coffee and bordered with tobacco stains is a drawing, more of a sketch, outlined in sharp pencil. The lines are faint and at some points are torn, as if the fervent artist in his haste to get his thoughts down has pressed too hard on this frail canvas. The masterpiece in question, marred with lines and annotations could be a picturesque jewel in the eyes of an avaricious businessman. A...

When I was little- Apostrophe Poem

When I was little
When I was little you always read to me at night,
When I was little you made sure I ready to go to school,
When I was little you always tied my shoes and zipped up my coat
When I was little you never let go of my hand any where we’d go,
When I was little and I got sick you made my favorite food for lunch,
When I was little you would always tell...
