Stories and Lullabies

PROMPT: The Unseen  | GROUP: In This Together

They say it's a door to heaven, a void that hinges on luck,
sculpted from lucid gloam, hewn by ominous mist,
appearing in its knee-crooking, obelisk glory to assist
those hindered in the pages of their story – those stuck.

The walkers do not crow for help; it isn't how they reign.
They knew the door would only engulf those who are proud,
who delude themselves so grievously so they are ne'er cowed,
so none would stumble into their beloved...

PROMPT: Dear Me  | GROUP: In This Together

Part I: Hopes

S,

Life has taken you somewhere hasn't it? I cannot begin to fathom where, but I can imagine you: book in hand, fire in your eyes, maybe standing next to someone? ready to change the world. I hope--oh, you have no idea how I hope that you haven't lost your ever innocent spirit, your view that people always have a fundamental "good" in them, that even the jerks and the villains in your story can be salvaged...

Manifest

PROMPT: The Unseen  | GROUP: In This Together

Beauty; 
a symbol painted into the infinity,
lucid; admired, 
captured, 
seen.

But the source?
the why?
the how?
the cause?

Flowing in every molecule of existence, 
a recurring theme, 
unforgettable painter of the artwork, 
invisible to the boastful blind, 
found in all manifestations of Creation, 
even the crevasse
of the blindest being's 
hollow heart.

Life Is Beautiful

PROMPT: Timeless Counsel  | GROUP: In This Together

I have started thinking about life and the meaning of life from early period of my adolescence. That was the time when I started questioning about my existance. Sometimes my life became too monotonous and I became too much depressed. I asked myself a lot that time, "What is the meaning of life? I don’t want to live." The voice of my inside replied, "Everyone in the world is created on a purpose. Your life also has its own purpose....

Constellate

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

When the memory of light begins to fade
and the nightmares leap from the shadows

solace

blades tickling my back, a tether to reality
but my mind

free

a picture of perfect beauty
freckles on the unblemished complexion of the sea

constellate

telling stories
distributing inspiration
teaching the student
humbling the master

because everyone is equal
under the stars.

You. Now. Infinitely.

PROMPT: Timeless Counsel  | GROUP: In This Together

Live for you in the now, infinitely.


Live for others, and you'll never be enough for yourself; but remember to be selfless.

Live for yesterday, and you'll never find happiness; but remember to learn from your regrets.

Live for tomorrow, and one day you'll look back and realize that you never lived at all; but remember to plan for future happiness.

Live limited, and you'll never find the solace of unbounded freedom; but remember...

Ticonderoga

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

A thin vein of isolated graphite
cocooned in a wooden embrace
holds worlds of passion in the hand of it's user:
where the impossible becomes reality, and
where the sun never sets, and the stars are square, and
and the limits of one's mind are bound only by one's imagination.
The darkness is restrained and the light always shines
and freedom can be found and obtained...
but only by those courageous enough to wield the weapon.

PROMPT: This I Believe  | GROUP: In This Together

"You don’t need anyone’s affection or approval in order to be good enough. When someone rejects or abandons or judges you, it isn’t actually about you. It’s about them and their own insecurities, limitations, and needs, and you don’t have to internalize that. Your worth isn’t contingent upon other people’s acceptance of you — it’s something inherent. You exist, and therefore, you matter. You’re allowed to voice your thoughts and feelings. You’re allowed to assert your needs and take up...

Believer

PROMPT: This I Believe  | GROUP: In This Together

I believe in love
and second chances.

I believe no person
is worth less than another.

I believe laughter is one of life's
most precious gifts. 

I believe in plans and planning,
and also diving into things headfirst.

I believe in prayers
and hopes for better skies.

I believe in winged feet
and outstretched arms.

I believe in tears
and anger,
and smiles, too. 

But most of all, 
I believe.

He was sitting alone in darkness. Suddenly someone knocked at the door. He was surprised and didn’t believe that someone really knocked at his door. But when he heard the same sound again, he realized that someone was really knocking. He got up and opened the door. Opening the door he saw someone he never expected to see at his doorstep. 
 
The girl at his doorstep had confusion in her eyes. Probably she was thinking whether it...

Wind

Stray a bird had come this fall,
Till my doorstep hall.
Ill no deed had I content-
-yet this fate had feathers call.
This innocent lad of the wall,
To ask where life meant.
Hollow mind and thought
 
Sought he money-he did not
Take from him light-he did not bear
Ask him garments-rags he wear
                            Draw him fortune-he bore none
                            Clasp him wisdom- rats he hunts
                           He ask, he ask: what month-

Being Myself

PROMPT: At Home  | GROUP: In This Together

    I am tired, frustrated with the world, and angry at things I do not control. Chaos is everywhere in my week. Family is irritated with one another. I don't want to see my friends out of fear that I will say something I'll regret in the heat of the moments of my week. So, I go into my cave of a room, sit down at my white desk, and stare at the ceiling for a spark of inspiration....

Seeing Darkness

PROMPT: The Unseen  | GROUP: In This Together

Close your eyes, what do you see?
Finding silence is a struggle, 
Seeing darkness is a gift.

Deep inside us all, something resides,
Finding solace seems impossible,
Wordlessness only expands the rift.

But how can a phrase ever describe?
That which cannot be seen?
Still we remain in darkness, wordlessly. 

So tell me, have I gone insane?
Perhaps we are all a little crazy,
I wish we could learn to simply embrace the absurdity.

Love is like the wind.
You cannot see it,

The wind moves the leaves.
Love moves hearts.
The wind chills the air.
Love warms the soul.
The wind changes the wheather.
Love changes lives.
The wind has great power.
Love has even more.
And love never fails.
