Swan River

PROMPT: Beyond Reason

is it frigid cold, for the poor coal-black swan
as he plunges the milky surface?
is it today that mother dolphin
will swivel for the girl who will forever remember?
is it a week for plundering rain
to fill and spill this river?
is it the only river to find
the only stream of coal-black swans?

Beyond reason

PROMPT: Beyond Reason



Are days and nights 
sun and moon’s compromise?
Do  clouds ever want to 
jump down from the sky?
Who eavesdrops on whispered 
secrets more? A sunny day 
or a starry night?
Does the land beneath our feet
ever feel stifled with our footprints?

Why can’t we shed our worries
as easily as tears?
When did prejudice smother 
humanity? 
Why does growing up make me 
feel so small?
Do happiness and sadness have
a schedule to follow? 

Why does everything become ...

I-IV. Questions of Divinity

PROMPT: Beyond Reason

I.
Do your eyes glow when you close them
or do you dream in colors and that's what
you're seeing?

II.
Are fireflies fallen stars that learn to adapt
to the Earth or are they ones that never got
a chance to shoot toward the night sky?

III.
Is every thought that's crossed your mind only
your purely or are they collections of words 
picked up during life's journey?

IV.
Who are the mirrors reflecting back at us

What am I?

PROMPT: Beyond Reason

How do I know what i want to be
if I don't know what I've been?
How do I fly
if i'm afraid to fall?
Can I escape the dark
without the key?
Is the reflection on the mirror me
or who you want me to be?

unanswerable questions

PROMPT: Beyond Reason

Can death be sure,
without existence? 
Or is existence only sure,
with death? 

And,
if death rules,
why do we live? 

What makes us satisfied? 
How do we establish values? 
The more of acquired,
or felt? 

So,
then,

What runs the world? 
The driving force of reason,
of greater and lesser,
or compulsive desire?

I Have No Idea

PROMPT: Beyond Reason

Do the china doll's eyes ever get tired of staring?
Do the cloud's want to come down or do they like it up there?
Do the music notes feel the emotion they convey or are they completely indifferent?
Do roses mind being among daisies or do they feel above them?

Questions

PROMPT: Beyond Reason

Can you help me see the light?
Hope, do you still exist?
Reaching out, I still can't touch you. Why can't I make it?
I just want to stop crying. Do you know where happiness is?
So far. How do I get back home?
To hard. Should I just give up?

Friends?

PROMPT: Beyond Reason

why do we need friends?

without them, loneliness creeps in and eventually takes over all other feelings; good and bad


yet with them, fight often emurge. shaking a piece of land once known to be perfect; to last forever.


bracelets made and gifted, games played, songs sung. but will i even remember in twenty years?
will i remember their face or name? will they even say hi to me, or will we end on bad terms?

Apocalypse

PROMPT: Beyond Reason

How do we die?
Who will love the weapon, who had no choice in her creation?
What does the old tree whisper under the new moon?
Where, oh sea, do you hide your children?
When will the end days come?

Questions I'll Ask God When I Get To Heaven

PROMPT: Beyond Reason

Are raindrops the tears of the sky? 
What do birds think of planes when they pass them by? 
How come whether happy, or sad, we cry?

What's in my brain, that I can't express?
What is my heart, pure, or a mess?
Do flowers think people are a little underdressed? 

Who is my self, just a person and soul?
What is the value of my life in gold?
What's the best thing I have that I cannot hold? 

How vast...

Eternal mystery

PROMPT: Beyond Reason

The colour of a mirror is an eternal mystery,
gray and white and silver - and oh look! There's some blue too
All the colours of the rainbow and yet none.

Where does an idea go when it has been forgotten,
twisted out of memory
and time,
Waiting to be recalled?

What are dreams made of?
I imagine clouds and hope and memories 
(and imagination, yes, what created this)
swirled together 
A whirlwind of bits and pieces
of the dreamer

There are questions, not all are answerable and that's alright

PROMPT: Beyond Reason

Serious
Why does the color of someone's skin influence how their treated or if even they live in some cases?
How can a person kill an innocent person and either deny it or make up reasons why they did it?
Why do police officers have less training then volunteers at animal shelters?
Why is 'I can't breath' a good reason not to wear a face mask but not a good reason to get off of a dying man?

Silly

Does it Have to be?

PROMPT: Beyond Reason

Why does it have to be that people hurt other people ? Why do people grow to cope with pain ? Why isn’t everything equal ? 

Why can’t a bad person be tamed ? Why are people so cruel ? Why are people so inhumane ? Why does a bully become a bully ? Why don’t people make change ?

Why do people think hurting the people who hurt you makes you any better than them ? Whey does it have to be that...

Rain

PROMPT: Beyond Reason

    Do the clouds try to reason,
as he takes steps toward the ledge?
    Does the sun stop to watch,
as his footing slips free?
    Is the sky remorseful,
for having persuaded him to jump?
    Do the heavens fill with tears,
as he begins his decent? 
    Does rain get sad,
before he hits the ground?

Greater Beings

PROMPT: Beyond Reason

Am I just a plaything for some
ethereal being on a whim?
Are there greater powers than our
souls can even comprehend? Can 
they take our breath as easily as they
bestow it? Will they?

Is Sin bound to human hearts, or might 
greater beings have wrath rumble through 
their souls?
Do we owe them all emotion? Who 
will calm our tempers when thunder reigns 
free?

Are they beings as we are?
How egotistical to think that the greatest souls...

I
have you ever seen 
that star-speckled oblivion? 
have you ever felt the weight
of the nothingness that rests among the stars? 

II
did you hear how 
the cosmos whispers its lullabies? 
how its deep murmurings 
echoed in the dark? 

III
have you ever felt 
the solar winds against your skin? 
or watched the beginnings of the universe
and how it exploded to make up you?

destiny

PROMPT: Beyond Reason

Can the pearl headlands,
with their striped cliff-side rock,
understand that their life is one that will end?
Have moths ever burned like Icarus,
encased in what they love, 
when they brushed against the sun?
Will a caterpillar gasping
its last bejewelled breaths
ever know if it'll fly? 
If two beings collided a split
second earlier, would the world
be the same?

Questions

PROMPT: Beyond Reason

What kind of being,
Sets the bowls in my head ringing?
Who is it seeing,
When my full pictures aren't perceiving?

When does later arrive?
And why don't I know the time
to make a move outside,
myself and venture to sing the right rhyme?

I.
Tell me, does the admin think
WtW will turn into Instagram?
Why all these restrictive rules
when we’re learning to find our voice?
Is this a community 
or a series of disjointed pieces?
Most importantly, what does
the admin want it to be?

Confusing Food

PROMPT: Beyond Reason

Why does the menu have chicken fingers?
Chickens don't have fingers, right?

At the grocery store, they have heads of lettuce,
but where's the rest of its body?

How can chili be hot and yet sound cold? 

The menu has buffalo wings,
but I've NEVER seen one fly.

In the grocery store, they have boneless chicken,
I thought all chickens had bones though...

Pineapples are a fruit, though its name sounds like a tree,
how can this be?
