For Myself

PROMPT: Dear Me  | GROUP: In This Together

Dear Me,
You worry a lot of the time. You’ve moved past those panic attacks but anxiety still decks you a falling blow when you’re not careful. Your hands shake when you get nervous, but only worried nervous, never butterflies-in-the-stomach nervous. You compare yourself when you shouldn’t, but you’ve made peace with being imperfect. You embrace it and try to fix the parts of yourself that you think need fixing. Sometimes you can’t see the parts of yourself that hurt...

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.

The Hollow of Breath

PROMPT: The Unseen  | GROUP: In This Together

The racing of a heart, still
apprehensive in its dawn.
The steeling of a will,
a soul, inside, is torn.

The indomitable, unsurpassable, 
most daunting of all horrors. 
Too close to ever evade -
The Mind.

My conjurer, my personal demon.
Bone deep power.
How it creates that which none have ever seen
in the flesh,
is the true terror.

It threads through the heart of all peoples,
feeding their imagination,
seeping into an ink-black room,
a figment of air...

Smile

PROMPT: Extraordinary in the Ordinary  | GROUP: In This Together

The pearls emerge nestled between
the slightly chapped casket
of his pink lips
rough like an oysters shell
and in a world
of masks and distancing
of fear making our humanity dissipate
I am overjoyed
to see a smile

Crimson skies

PROMPT: Extraordinary in the Ordinary  | GROUP: In This Together

Emerald green leaves sway back and forth in magnificent waves, 
A cluster of pecan trunks, 
The scurrying of a small striped squirrel, 

Pearly white snowy owls stir,
Birds tuck their little ones in the safety of their nests, 
A bed time story for mama's little boy, 

All under the cool winter air, 
Blowing the lone clouds, 
Dotting the beautifully crimson skies.

Dear me

PROMPT: Dear Me  | GROUP: In This Together

Dear me,

Words; I could write thousands of them. I could hand you an instruction manual. I could tell you exactly who I want to be when I'm you, but what does that matter? 

I have advice; lots of it. The problem is, you probably have more. You hold the thousands of secrets; you can tell me exactly what I did wrong, exactly how I can change. You stay up all night wondering what if to something I hold power...

Hiraeth

PROMPT: Superhero of 2020  | GROUP: In This Together

The world does not need a hero.  
The world does not need more reason to fight. 
The world needs a friend, 
to hold its hand while facing everything thrown their way. 
The world does not need someone to solve its problems, 
it just needs a hug; 
it just needs someone to hold while everything falls apart. 

The world is not broken; 
its just alone. 

He's missing home.
