PROMPT: Birdsong

here i come--
and the bird is whirring
beats the air
a thrum and a shiver

here i  come--
and the bird is going
tumbles from fear
a clumsy sliver

here i come--
and the bird collapses
feathers a prayer
thwacks a river

The Beautiful life

FREE WRITING

Look at this sky,
Birds are flying,
A sound of wind touches our ears.
That slow and hard rain. The fresh and cool atmosphere.
After the rain that small rainbow.
These drops of rains on the tree leafs and they are dropping from there and touching our chicks.
Those tree branches waving in the air and making a sweet echo.
That dim light of sun is coming from clouds and spreading the rays of it in all directions and just...

Friendly Threats(Poetry)

FREE WRITING

Intruders in my heart,
they emotions sometimes,
I get them out being strong,
still they come again and again.
The known threats, I call them the friendly threats.

I sit somewhere in rain,
water drop touches my cheeks,
ultimate pleasure I feel,
then Emotions wake up again.
The known threats, I call them the friendly threats.

I think of flying to escape,
I dream of spreading like sun rays,
I go to tall mountains but fallen,

Past or Future?: Chapter 2

That was the farthest back Nyasa could remember. The memory terrified her. That's why she tried to avoid people, unless she needed supplies that she couldn't get from the wilderness. Nyasa glanced up and saw that the sun was rising. She put her provisions in her pack, sheathed her knives, than shoved her ax in it's loop on her belt. She put the fire out, the started her trek to the North.

Walking around this old house, it's a weird feeling for you. All those halls, those rooms, those memories; you haven't seen or felt them in years. 

Just seeing that portrait of your uncle, seeing that man that ruined your family all those years ago, it just makes you want to throw something at it.

In fact, you did. You grabbed the nearest vase and threw it at your uncle's face. It feels...satisfying.

The feeling doesn't last long however. You remember...

Around the Map in Sixteen Lines

FREE WRITING

I threw away the newer map,
And reached to snatch the old,
For what was missing on the drying ink,
Were stories of footsteps, still untold.

I took my rod and a single garment
And began on the faded road,
My footsteps crumpled the yellow parchment
And waves of inked wind blowed,

The trees were drawn as clumps of spirals,
And as I walked, I found them so,
The seas were lines of a bluer brush,
Uphill did rivers flow.

    It was about 7:12am when San arrived, and the first thing he did was go to the dining room. He put his new hoodie on the table next to the red sweater. I still wasn't sure why he had kept the red sweater out. I hoped...

Our Table

FREE WRITING

I wonder what people think
when they see our table all set,
ready for guests.
Napkins folded to perfection,
fancy wine glasses sparkling,
forks
spoons
and knives
set straight beside each other.
Everything seems perfect. 
But if they look closer they'll see, 
the napkins are not folded entirely straight
because my mother's hands shake. 
The fancy wine glasses are only grape juice,
but my brothers like looking fancy.
The forks, 
spoons, 
and knives all have diffrent designs
because I couldn't decide which...

You were once part of the moon, I think. 
She was the mother that cooed her only son. This son thought that he couldn’t be good at any sort unless he was exactly unlike himself. 
Perhaps he wanted to be in relation to the sun instead. 
I think in that other life, she disowned you and sent you to her sister, earth. 
“Find your inner sun.” she whimpered as she let go of the grasp of your hand. 

That’s how...

The Atheist’s Grudge

FREE WRITING

Don’t recall a time 
When you found Mary on the porch
Sipping wine 
Taking a drag 
Wanting to have a chat

Don’t recall a time where Jesus said:
How are you getting so good? 
Can I have a tip?
Who’s your banker?

Instead I got 
The next door neighbor and she’s 
Knocking on my door and she’s
Telling me it’s not to late for sinners like me

She’ll give me the key?
She’ll give me a VIP
to heaven 

Well...
