A Captivating Sight

PROMPT: The Peace of Wild Things  | GROUP: In This Together

Wow, what a night,
Beautiful indeed,
A captivating sight,
The joy of being freed.

Stars unimaginably bright,
The moon as white as snow,
Each a comforting light,
I admire, as I sit below.

As I gaze at the sky,
I let out a cough,
On my back I lie,
As I begin to drift off.

Over The Mountain

PROMPT: The Peace of Wild Things  | GROUP: In This Together


Working, I pause to gaze over the mountain, to
see if the world was as dark as it felt.
I saw the blue sky, I saw the white clouds, move,
restlessly. I saw the birds glide, I saw the hawks,
search. I saw the men work, I saw the children play,
and I saw myself looking for stillness. 
Then I saw it, before me always, unmoving and
unmoved, the mountain. It stands and it does
not rest, it stands showing...

Look Skyward

PROMPT: The Peace of Wild Things  | GROUP: In This Together

When death threatens to overtake my calm demeanor 
When smiling with teeth strained and rotten from all my lies
Is too much.
I return to the sky 
I cast my gaze upon the heavens 
Mountain. 
Sunset.
Rise.
Beautiful in its simplicity, in its unwavering favor.
That it casts upon all wayward travelers
The sky will never abandon those it bequeaths below 
It is infinite and magnanimous and free.
Everything I want to be.

Unplug!

PROMPT: The Peace of Wild Things  | GROUP: In This Together

The sound resonates inside me
My eyes glued to the screen
unaffiliated from the outside world.
My eyes are streaked and brimming red 
from all that brightness emitted ahead.
But I have not a care.

Gasp!

I unplug 
from the mobiles, the gadgets
From the so-called necessity
I unplug and transform
and no longer am I that solitary being.

I heave out a sigh and look around.
The sun shines from above
penetrating my glasses and into my eyes.

Silent Wood

PROMPT: The Peace of Wild Things  | GROUP: In This Together

Standing on moss,
Bare toes wiggling in its softness,
I could just breathe in the aroma of peace,
Serenity,
An escape from the exhausting stress of modern life,
The drama of friends, or not-friends,
The weariness and drudgery of school.
And it all vanishes away here.
Sunlight peeps through cracks in the foliage,
The leaves blending it into emerald and topaz.
A golden light falls on my skin, bringing a glow of new life.
I lean my head against a...

Diary, my dearie #1st Challenge

PROMPT: The Peace of Wild Things  | GROUP: In This Together

When love and happiness come along,
When things go wrong and fun is gone,
When things turn down and bring worries,
I have you O diary, my dearie.


When friends are there for me to care,
When friends depart and no one is near,
You are always there for me
Just for me O diary, my dearie.

When love and hatred clash upon,
And I need a friend to share them all,
You listen without speaking a word
And I...

Where Can I? (title idea's?)

PROMPT: The Peace of Wild Things  | GROUP: In This Together

Where I can see the stars above me,
Where I can hear the birds chirping,
Where I can taste the rain that fell days before,
Where I can smell the dirt from century's ago,
Where I can feel connected to nature,
Where I know dreams will come true,
If I can just keep dreaming.

Escaping the Puzzle

PROMPT: The Peace of Wild Things  | GROUP: In This Together

There are times when everything just grows
into an intricate puzzle of loose strings
so entangled I cannot even begin
to think how to unravel them.
My thoughts start to drift to the misfitting;
how I am trying to mold myself 
into something I am not; how I shove myself 
somewhere I do not belong in the littlest.  

I've learned to escape these thoughts in the meadows. 
If nothing else, the grass always have
their arms outstretched to catch me, 
sleek,...

Peace In The Storm

PROMPT: The Peace of Wild Things  | GROUP: In This Together

The world is full of uncertainty so, you ask where my peace is found.

"My peace is found in God," I'll reply "my help comes from the Lord."

When your world is flipped upside-down and the walls of safety around you crumble,

Remember Jesus loves you. You aren't just one in a billion numbers. 

Fear bows, anxiety disappears, tears are dried at the sound of Jesus' name!

You aren't alone. 

You never were.

Inhale peace... exhale worry. 

Though the waves roar...

Everything

PROMPT: The Peace of Wild Things  | GROUP: In This Together

I have been on the edge of everything before, dangling into the nothingness like a dead thing in a dreamworld. There, where time is uncountable and therefore untouchable, up was neither upwards nor downwards nor sideways, as though some of the dimensions I'd once taken for granted had never existed or had vanished suddenly; the souls of my feet coming away beneath me until the ground was no longer mine to stand on; the colours of the universe no longer...

I am old

PROMPT: The Peace of Wild Things  | GROUP: In This Together

I close my eyes,
Every note is like sunshine,
It tastes like summer,
And I drift away into a world;

I am old, but I am happy,
I still have light in my eyes a spring in my step,
I am thankful for my silver hair,
For my wrinkles;

These wrinkles hold memories,
Beautiful dreams of peace,
Of smiling faces and happy voices,
"By God," they say, "we're free;"

I am old, but my teachings live on,
Like a large...

Solace - Alone

PROMPT: The Peace of Wild Things  | GROUP: In This Together

I find solace in a cozy cup of tea

I find solace sitting in an ancient tree

I find solace where no one else can see

I find solace when I’m alone with me.

One of the Wild Things

PROMPT: The Peace of Wild Things  | GROUP: In This Together


Broken pots half buried
ivy creeping up the stucco
latching on and sucking all the civilization
& remnants of what used to be
a childhood unexcavated

See those mossy loose bricks?
we used to smash acorns with
stealing their twin caps 
in exchange for our crowns
petals still line the uneven path
but now, just for itself

there's a tranquility here
in the unsilent silence
the cool fresh green of the grass
the rough pine needles, therapeutic
as they are...

The things tourists don't know

PROMPT: The Peace of Wild Things  | GROUP: In This Together

I ride my bike down the highway to the bay.
Passed the blooming hydrangeas, and passed the parking lot
silly tourists stop to see the sun set, they'll take a picture then leave
they will walk barefoot and try to find a shell, but they won't
They flock together where the view they say is best
but I know they will still get someone else's head in the bottom corner of their picture
someone will kick sand in their face...

The feel of nature

PROMPT: The Peace of Wild Things  | GROUP: In This Together

I always find love
Where there is wilderness 
The depths of the forest
Or under a tree
And even in cities
If there are parks and trees
Their leaves sway and shimmy 
In the crisp autumn breeze
But most of all in the country
Where red cherries grow
Even in campgrounds
Or on Anne of green-gables rows
For where there is nature
Is where I want to be

Where hills roll
And foxes prowl 
Or on holiday camping
When we...

In the Tree

PROMPT: The Peace of Wild Things  | GROUP: In This Together

When I run outside wanting to cry,
I climb the tree and feel I can fly!
All of my worries float far away
As I look at the beautiful day.
        When I am up here
        My head becomes clear.
        My thoughts all go straight.
        I can hardly wait
    To put it all into words,
    Starting with the calling birds:

Whirperdee, whirperdee, whirper wee-wee-wee, werrwe!
Cheeper, cheeper, cheeper!
Wher-whepher, wepher!

Home Sweet Home

World turned upside down, 
living a life that's not my own.
Shattered in pieces the future not known.
Home is where I go back to where I belong.

In The Midst Of Nature

PROMPT: The Peace of Wild Things  | GROUP: In This Together

When my heart is in turmoil,
when I cannot bear the noise of the world no more,
when I need a break from everything and everyone,
I step outside, the sunlight beaming on my face,
the cool breeze caressing the strands of my hair,
the dirt ground is hard beneath my feet,
the grass is warm and soft,
I walk amongst flowers,
enjoying the beautiful scents,
trees loom over me,
as I make my way to the heart of the...

My Love

PROMPT: The Peace of Wild Things  | GROUP: In This Together

Basketball. Basketball is my everything. The pure joy it brings me. The searing love I have for it; not just the game itself, but the whole process. I'm in love with the process, if you will. The hours upon hours spent practicing, I would not want to be doing anything else. As for the game itself, it's true art. There's expression in the game. People find they have alter egos on the court. It's transformative. The intensity displayed by opposing...

Six Feet Apart

PROMPT: The Peace of Wild Things  | GROUP: In This Together

Seven o'clock; 
I climb out my window 
to my throne made of rock 
where the wild winds blow. 

A book in my hand, 
but the real story in my heart, 
I wander the land 
and gaze at the sky's art. 

I find my place 
upon the hill, 
and my mind sets its pace 
through the author's will. 

I wander through places 
that I've never seen, 
and I wear the faces 
of people I'll never meet. 

And I'll listen to the...

Wilder Than Wild Thoughts

PROMPT: The Peace of Wild Things  | GROUP: In This Together

When I'm blind
Fear constricting my lungs
When I've taken the poison
Head wracked with pain, I've been stung

My thoughts run wild
I couldn't control them even if I tried
This overthinking, it won't stop
What can I do when my brain's been fried?

If I can
If I can remember
I go back to the river
Or in my head, back to that September

Cool sparkling water
Runs down my face and hands
Running back down to the...

The Night Sky

PROMPT: The Peace of Wild Things  | GROUP: In This Together

When I stare into the night sky
blinking stars reside in my eyes
---- their flickering light beacons 
the darkness around a girl
heartbroken and perplexed, so that
she could see her path ahead

O the night sky
canvas of life on which 
I wish I could paint a permanent smile
the night breeze gently patting my hair
lovely grass giving me the millionth hug
purest peace budding in my heart
with the magic from afar

Under the night sky ...
