the day by day

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

waking up to the honey warmth of the midday sun
sitting on our patio munching on the crispy, homemade bagel
pondering about how else I can cover my mother’s kitchen in all-purpose flour
the familiar pitter-patter of my piano fingers on the keyboard like rain in a storm
seeing my friends pixelated expressions on the scalding screen
listening to the mundane drone of CNN 
driving down empty roads in my dad’s Model 3
this is
my new life

the second plague

PROMPT: Creature View  | GROUP: In This Together

She prances farther into the brush, fear taking hold of her legs. They are close. She can smell them, hear them. The mangy scent of hound fills her head, muddling it. Just a bit farther and she can stop. Her herd continues on, spurred by fear and terror. The two leggers had begun to creep closer and closer and there are now more of them than ever before. For some reason, the trail next to the water is full of...

alright

PROMPT: Timeless Counsel  | GROUP: In This Together

"You're going to be alright." My parents always tell me this when I worry about the future. How I am going to do on this test? Am I doing enough? I don't know if I'm smart enough? I think this is important to think about right now, because the future is very unpredictable right now. There is always uncertainty in the future, but especially right now. My parents have been telling me that everything is going to be alright in...

Dear me, sincerely me

PROMPT: Dear Me  | GROUP: In This Together

Dear me,

    Prepare yourself for a lot of deep thinking. The future is unpredictable and sometimes it’s good to reflect on the past and remember. Did you finally get to work on your dream job, or accomplish the goals I-or we- imagined for ourself? How many novels have you written? Or do you still write anymore? I hope I don’t lose interest in writing because honestly, it just might the one thing that keeps me sane. That and...

Happiness: All Secrets Out

PROMPT: Timeless Counsel  | GROUP: In This Together


                                 My azoba, my paternal grandfather died last year on his birthday. I did not cry-I barely knew him. We didn't live together and my teen notions of 'knowing a person' cover everything from knowing one's favorite color to their deepest secret. He owned a couple of acres of farm land that he'd gotten as dowry upon his marriage to my grandmother. It is a pretty...

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...

Family

PROMPT: A Piece of Good News  | GROUP: In This Together

I have a lot of siblings, so my mom is always prepared for holidays before they come. Easter morning I woke up and my mom said, "There are 64 eggs in this room. 32 are for you, and 32 are for your brother. There's also a gift with your name on it somewhere." I tried to wake my brother up to no avail, but I also didn't try very hard; I don't like being woken up either. I told him...

Bright Side of Quarantine

PROMPT: A Piece of Good News  | GROUP: In This Together

April 23, 2020

For the past several weeks, there have been many precautions taken to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, including social distancing. This means everything involving getting together physically has been cancelled, including school, and many big events. Though I'm disappointed about some of these events, I've been happy to have a lot more time on my hands. I've been able to persue my passions, such as theoretical physics, pure mathematics, writing, and playing my instruments (especially piano)....

this is a small piece of news

to laugh

at the world

PROMPT: At Home  | GROUP: In This Together

I find myself at the sea
sitting on a grassy crag 
above the coastal path, book in hand
the sun is warm and every now and then i glance
up
and the sea is so big
it settles inside my soul somewhere
and i am home

i find myself in solitude
walking along the beach
listening to long obscure songs no one knows 
the names of

No Matter What, You Can Always Write!

PROMPT: A Piece of Good News  | GROUP: In This Together

You could be writer of Fiction, create the worlds that dance in your mind,
the story could be short with less than three lines.

Or maybe write a Novella with 30 to 50 thousand words,
possibly a Novel that is about the birds!

Do Scripts and Screenplays play a part for you?
Lets not forget being a planner do you want to dive into something new?

Take up Nonfiction creating to bring the facts one by one.

Raindrops make up the thunder storm
The drip on everything
They can not be ignored
As you listen to them sing
I can hear them drip drip they say
I sit here watching
Listen to them all day
As everything is passing

PROMPT: At Home  | GROUP: In This Together

  1. the swish of my pen as i leave it free to dance upon a paper stage. hard downstroke, twirling upstroke, loop. a dancer untamed, soaking up the spotlight.
  2. a chocolate ice pop, melting on my tongue, tingling my taste buds with bittersweet flavor. a flood of happiness in a single lick. it coats my fingers, but i don't care. a remnant of the joy; perhaps it will last.

Why is this happening? I scream.Its surely a punishment.we're getting punished, for whatever we did to your creations.it is a punishment, but i ask for forgiveness.The thoughts remain inside my head, but i feel like someone is answering.I feel the hopeful voice of someone saying it's going to pass. How can you be so merciful? Something inside me screams again. I made you to be merciful to you.

Cardboard Box

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

Within the barriers lies the memory
of what once filled
the world,
which now has left
to serve a mighty army,
leaving nothing but
the emptiness of ideas.
And within the library of emptiness
dance those secret memories.

A Teaspoon of Hope and a Tablespoon of Joy

PROMPT: A Piece of Good News  | GROUP: In This Together

Dear Diary,
    Some days life pain me to go through. But it's got it's perks. Whether it's a simple flower I spot in the yard, to an incredible act of charity I see on TV, good news surrounds us all. It just takes an open mind to find it.
    Today wasn't amazing. It was a little cold and rainy, but I saw the most gorgeous sunset. Totally made my evening.
                                                            
                                                                    With love,

Paper

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

Matte and pure, ceaseless as it seems;
Upon the perfect gleam its exterior sings.
Deep, rich with words untold and unlived worlds; 
Ink not merely sink; dryer of tears, a holder of coffee-mug rings.
Taking flight as a wind picks its corners to flutter,
While soon come an irreversible crumple, stories hold together.
Why no message no bond pertains possible without its touch,
A sacrifice to let the people feel;
The connector piece, a flat mobile.
