I will post prompts that I find/ have found here. If you find inspiration with these (which I hope you do) please let me know. I really like all of the prompts I find and I would love to see what you guys make of them. I'll change the prompts every week or so so that there is always something new.

Prompt #4
In an alternate universe, the caution sign "Children at play" is not what it seems. It is a warning.

Falling Up

What happens when the words come too fast to hear?
Listening to cottonwoods sing as they snow, flakes falling.
If there are a dozen reasons behind I'm fine, I fear...
No one will ever really understand and I will keep falling...
Like Alice...
down the Rabbit

I am falling.
I am whole.

The world rushes past in a blur of clarity.
Moments of complete understanding are a rarity.
The snow is flying up, back to the clouds.
While I fall down,
trying to catch the ropes of "I'm so proud!"s.
And I find

Of the box
I am trapped in.

I can't stand up when they lock me down.
But only a queen can wear my crown.
And the Queen of Hearts cannot have that throne.
So I sit in this box, never quite alone.
Voices in my head...
Mixing truth and lies.
        And then I'm f

                                                n
                                                    g
                                                        again.
And then I am home.
I have words in my head.
I am content and alone.
Sitting criss-cross on my bed.

No one can tell me the words I haven't yet spoken.
And there are places that are not yet broken.
Tell me your stories of falling up and falling down!
And perhaps, this lost boy will come back to the ground.
 
This references Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Peter Pan!
