MY FATHER

PROMPT: Extraordinary in the Ordinary

The strenght of family,
That bonds and holds together.
People in life coming and going,
But the love for dad like a river keep flowing

You scold me for my own good
And forgive me on my mistake ,I know you would
Your love goes deeper and beyond words

And when I call in pain ,I'm sure you'll be heard

Who stand behind us endlessly 
And appreciates happily
I just want the best for you, because you are so...

The Mango Sun

PROMPT: Extraordinary in the Ordinary

The orange-yellow surface,

Dotted here and there with black.

The peel falls off as easily as a sticker.

Showing within a bright sun.

Yellow juice dripping.

Sweeter than the ripest berry.

Inside lays a golden seed.

Blinding as the rising sun.

Slippery as a fish.

Never letting itself to be treasured.

Winter Jumper

PROMPT: Extraordinary in the Ordinary

Heaven's entwined wool.
As smooth as a caress,
Like a kiss in the night.
Yet as white as my wedding dress.
And as soft as the angel's bless'.
The sleeves of the fabric I pull
To keep warm,
As the snow tumbles; a mess.
A blissful sight.

U-TURN

PROMPT: Extraordinary in the Ordinary

this trip to optimism
has taken a massive drift
i'm afraid the wheel has another master
and though my hands are on
the wheel has had its own direction
back to sadness and grief
from once a happy trip.

the hope i once had
is what i'm now hoping to have.

A Handful of Light

PROMPT: Extraordinary in the Ordinary

creating golden glimmer with 
wrinkled hands of hers 
silent...
sweet golden air
a reminder of what used to be
the sunny days and crystal skies
smiling as she flawlessly
moves those hands of hers
a handful of light

A Rainbow of Paints

PROMPT: Extraordinary in the Ordinary

You can fit a rainbow in your hand
And use that rainbow to create something new.
Just take the bristles of the brush
Dip them into the rainbow
And once it makes contact with the paper
You are in charge.
You can make a rainbow
Even more beautiful than it already was

Leaves

PROMPT: Extraordinary in the Ordinary

First it is born
Then it grows old
Withers up
Dies from cold
Starts to crack
Breaks and falls
When the spring birds 
Stop their calls
Thus the trees dicide it's fall

A Quiet Day

PROMPT: Extraordinary in the Ordinary

See that girl there,
Out of place like a tree.
in a desert landscape,
Not a drop was heard.
as time pushed.
The sun dried her leaves,
and her wood dried.
the seeds lived on,
but she was forever gone.

Red

PROMPT: Extraordinary in the Ordinary

Red is a vision
For people it is just a colour
For  me
It is so much more
l look at red and see the blood of Christ
Slowly caressing his face as 
He payed the ransom
l see red and l drink the blood
As if it was His last supper again

Pretentious Bulldog

PROMPT: Extraordinary in the Ordinary

Those three words fall from your mouth as if they were everyday common words
Falling from your blissful beautiful pink lips,
as if it was slobber dripping from the mouth of a pretentious bulldog.
Slowly dancing their way into my ears, as goose bumps shatter my
once perfectly smooth skin.
Your words invade my mind
as if they were the only thing i needed to survive.
They lingered in the air between us, just for a moment,
and then then...

Eudaimonia

PROMPT: Extraordinary in the Ordinary

Some days, I think that I hear my alarm clock.
Only then, do I become disappointed
that the day I was living was but a dream.
This beautiful gift, wrapped in the hands of nature,
your life.
Nothing is more precious, more delicate.
I beg of you, to cherish it, protect it,
before it is all but a dream.
The world, your canvas.

Snow

PROMPT: Extraordinary in the Ordinary

Drifting slowly around me, 
It's all I can see,
Each one so different, yet so the same,
I'd always loved when they came,
Slowly drifting down to earth,
Like the rain and the clouds were giving birth,
To something special and new,
That made us a coo,
That beautiful thing was snow.

a toast

PROMPT: Extraordinary in the Ordinary

the soft curve of the sands of times
fused together to hold the oceans in its arms.
perhaps the carrier of life,
an amusing distortion of my face as I kiss the edges of savior.
i suppose it's more than a physical need to wrap a hand around cold.
it is the sound of broken, a crash
that floods us with memories of good times and laughs
so let us raise the light of the world
and swallow the sharpness...

Tapestry of Time

PROMPT: Extraordinary in the Ordinary

Around us is a tapestry 
painted in cobalt and violet 
it is a gradient of time, the colors:
brighter, warmer in the morning
and cooler at night. We try to associate
darkness with other worlds and other 
stories, but truly, it is only in the dark
that one can see stars.

Quiet Beauty

PROMPT: Extraordinary in the Ordinary

sparkling drops
that fell from the sky
and you never think about it
but they know how to fly
glorious sights they must've seen
the hideous, the marvelous
and all in between.
voiceless they sit
a kind of quiet beauty

Secrets of the Universe

PROMPT: Extraordinary in the Ordinary

Butterflies: the messengers of heaven
Flying across the world
Hearing the universe’s secrets
In the whispers of the wind
Fluttering in the ear of those who will listen
Oh little butterfly
How could something so insignificant 
Hold the very universe
Between its fragile wings

Battered Piano

PROMPT: Extraordinary in the Ordinary

A row of penguins, sleek black and white.
Harmonious notes of the soul,
laid out in an orderly line.
Each sound a different colour
of a rainbow octave.
Cocoa brown lid weighed down with dust.
Chipped, in places.
Though every imperfection
a fragment of magic.

Rouge

PROMPT: Extraordinary in the Ordinary

Ruby cream of lipstick crushes 
On starlet's pouted lips
Akin to crushed carmine beetles 
Utilised by Cleopatra 
A scarlet invitation 
The forbidden fruit in a tube
Adam and Eve hungrily bite
The forever kiss of passion 
A smirk of silky beauty

Winter in Texas

PROMPT: Extraordinary in the Ordinary



                                                                        December is not winter
                                                                        Texas is always hot
                                                                        Forty degrees isn't snowing
                                                                        Christmas is never white
                                                                        The trees never die
                                                                        Coats are never needed
                                                                        Schools never canceled 
                                                                        Gelid is impossible
                                                                        Maybe December is winter
                                                                        Texas is definitely not

Mistletoe tree

PROMPT: Extraordinary in the Ordinary

Though I've never been under a mistletoe 
i feel like I had lived my whole life under it
Rooted on a spot in a fixated unknown land
i feel like many many memories have been shared under it. 
The mistletoe tree.

becomes

Aluminium Foil

PROMPT: Extraordinary in the Ordinary

A thousand tiny pores 
and a thousand mountainscapes of wrinkles,
This skin is unlike that of anyone living.
Created to seal the average meal
in a holographic futuristic coating,
Who would've looked to the minerals of Earth
to find the beauty of the heavens 
wrapping a day-old ham sandwich.
Only humanity could create something this vain.
