My Mind

PROMPT: Microphone

If you put a microphone in my mind, you would hear...

Letters, tangled into words. Words tangled into sentences. 
Man, today will be a great day.
The lyrics to a song I don't remember the name of, repeating itself.
Sha la la la la la la, my love. 
The sounds of memories at a barbeque on the 4th of July.
Giggles, pops, cracks, sizzles.
My Mother's words to me on my birthday. 
Happy birthday, Sofie.
Crashes of anxiety trying to break...

The Outside World

PROMPT: Microphone

The outside world is an adventure. Being apart of this world is huge. You can be whatever you want to be. How would I live my life, to the fullest of course. There is no time to be unhappy or sad. Be passionate, live your life. Live like there is no tomorrow. The outside world has sunlight,rain, wind, and nature. Thinking about all of that makes me feel free. Do not waste time on anything. Be creative, active, and adventurous!!!

Baseball

PROMPT: Microphone

If you lowered a microphone into one of my baseball games you would hear...


The ball hitting gloves. 
The ping of the bat when it hits the baseball.
The umpire making the call
The sound of dirt being crunched under our cleats
Cheers from the audience 
The grass brushing against our cleats.

Heart, and Dreams

PROMPT: Microphone

If you put a microphone right into my heart, you'll hear the "lub-dub" as it pumps, may be the gush of scarlet-red blood as well. But, if you listen it attentively, you'll hear my dreams growing, and finding their way out to emerge, to show up, to exceed, to outshine. You'll hear butterflies fluttering, fireflies making noise breaking the silence of the night; slow, playful motion of trees causing cool, pleasant breeze. You'll hear serenity and audacity of...

PROMPT: Microphone

If you lowered a microphone
and dip it into the murky white matter
under the ashen grey layer
in the brain.

Screams you will hear
so ghoulish you might think their fake
but they hold the agony
that was stained in the strains
crying in a vocal chord

Then comes the silence.

Silence isn't good
it suffocates
enveloping you in its eerie soundlessness
for something
crawls behind it
ready to pounce.

A creatures you can never see.

It's cries echo ...

Echoes of sound(#this_is_my_world)

PROMPT: Microphone

Pushing through the wooden door, I'm swarmed by sound. I glance at a smiling face, short teeth shining. Questions echo from the lounge, the TV blaring with the latest watch. Darkness crouches in the four-walled room, curtains shut. A low breeze roams around the house, rustling pages filled with words. Turning to my left, I cringe at sudden light, the noise of angry siblings. The clatter of clothes falling from my bed. A pulse of apple roles across the cool...

quiet on the set

PROMPT: Microphone

'quiet on the set'
would be the first words you'd hear.

everyone drops into stillness-
worms on their fishhooks.
he who doesn't move
will surface unscathed-

and in that silence, everyone shifts
even through sound, 
one can hear the way the breathing changes
and the energy renews itself,
a sunrise
(or sunset- the difference cannot be heard, only seen).

though we shiver,
we are actually burning up,
or we may be feigning heat
when we truly are quite cold.

but none...

People

PROMPT: Microphone

You would hear laughter, if you listened. You would hear phrases that make no sense at all, jokes and bad puns, and laughter for everyone. You would hear the hidden insecurities that almost everyone hides, whispering to you to conceal ad run away. But nobody listens to them, so neither should you.
If you listened, you would hear people. You would hear them talking in low voices, or shouting out loud, you would hear them as they smile, hear them...

The Outback Symphony

PROMPT: Microphone

if you lowered a microphone to the dirty street outside my home, you would not hear much other than the rumbling of wheels trekking through the gravel. The sounds of school bags swinging to the ground as students wait for the bus, with perhaps a background noise of hurried footsteps tap-dancing down the pavement.

​if you decide to lift a microphone towards the sky, perhaps you will find a different story. One of crows shrieking something foul between phone lines, or the...

Just another average night.

PROMPT: Microphone

The thunder rumbles as I toss and turn in my bed.
My brother 'stealthily' sneaks out of his creaking bed to snatch some of my parent's chocolate they've been saving and think we don't know about.
I wince as he puts his foot in a bucket of slime he left on his floor.
My dog barks along to the chorus of 'Ow! Wet! Slimy! What happened? EEEEWWWW, my foot's covered in slime!'
I slip out of bed and peek...

Thanksgiving Morning

PROMPT: Microphone

If you lowered a microphone in my cousin's house on Thanksgiving morning, you would hear...

The oven beeping merrily, signaling to us that more delicious food was ready to be devoured.
The persistent screech of the bar chair, squealing as my sister spun in circles.
The cheers of victory from the garage, after a ping-pong game has finally been won.
The delighted shrieks of joy as my cousins chased us around the driveway. 
My mom and aunt singing loudly and...

winding down at dinner

PROMPT: Microphone

a soft hiss of oil
as she tosses ginger into the pan

thud - thud - thud
he works the dough
bakery fresh from resting in the sun all afternoon
in it's lemon yellow dish

tap - tap - tap
and here's the cat
who has caught the scent of suppertime
toddling into the room on soft padded feet
half slithering through our legs and past the counter

The TV chatter gently in the next room
the news- and it's...

The Alluring Whispers of Nature

PROMPT: Microphone

If you lowered a microphone into a circular, scenic Local Park with a wide, surrounding lake stacked right in the middle of it, then you might hear the sounds of nature and the type of people wishing to thrive in it. The chirping calls of crickets calling out to each other inside the lengthy but thin blades of grass flailing at the smooth breeze of the wind. The small chatter and snippets of words heard from two teenagers passing by...

New Day

PROMPT: Microphone

If you lowered a microphone into my house in New York on a Saturday morning, it’d have to depend on the night before for me to ascertain what exactly you’d be hearing: perhaps you hear the shrill screech of my alarm at an unfavorable hour because I decided the night before I had too much work to sleep in and the snoring from my older sister right through the alarm from the room next door while a bed on the...
