Hey Gorgeous

PROMPT: Dear Me  | GROUP: In This Together

Dear Future Me,
    Hey gorgeous. How's life? Have we overcome Jr. High yet? Are we still on WtW? Do we have a bit more assurance in our appearance? How's our boy? Have we got him yet? I hope you still know how valuable and important you are. I know that life can sure slap you in the rear when you least expect it, but I have confidence in us. 
    How's little sis? And middle sis? What...

PROMPT: Playlist  | GROUP: In This Together

Our House by Crosby, Stills and Nash - This song is very low key but also one of my favorites. I can listen to this over and over again without getting tired. This song tells a story.

American Pie by Don McLean - I'm sure everybody has heard of this but it's just such an amazing song that you can always sing along to.

All You Need Is Love by The Beatles - It's an upbeat song and also great...

Meditation or Observation

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

Not just sat 
on a yoga mat,
humming 'ahhh'
for an hour,

but watching rain
down a window pane,
a breath of breeze 
swaying trees,

just observe; that will serve.

Spiderweb

Shining lines,
Sparkling drops,
Masterful beauty,
Sheer ingenuousness,
From stick to stick,
To catch all,
Winding endlessly,
Spinning like a merry go round,
To create a masterpiece.

Gone

PROMPT: Creature View  | GROUP: In This Together

It wasn't like they were gone. I could still smell them, identify marks, occasionally see a human. But...something was different. But then, I'm just a deer. I don't know what is scaring them, or if I should be scared. I stay away from humans so I can't exactly ask them! Who knows, I might be dinner if I tried. But, they had changed. Maybe I should be scared.

Perks Of A No.2 Pencil

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

My head, the lead, is toxic in many ways

My body gives no splinters, but holds myself together

I come in all shapes and sizes, all brands included

Although overlooked, my ferrule is a bridge between utensils 

And much used, my eraser end decreases in size, decreasing my value as well

Accessories seem to always "hug" my small frame

And many times I am overlooked, due to my advanced friend, the mechanical pencil 

I could be used to make worlds,...

Watercolor Breeze | Poetic

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

The leaves dance in the wind
Flowers bend and twirl
Colors sing on the breeze
Blush and lavender and scarlet
Ebony and indigo and olive
Watercolors fly and kiss the world
Paint the sky
And stain the ocean
All flowing in a mere breeze

Soothing Sounds Playlist

PROMPT: Playlist  | GROUP: In This Together

Asleep by The Smiths
This song made my list because it's lyrics. It talks about sleeping (duh) but its all about how you interpret the song.

Drops of Jupiter by Train
This song made my list because of how whimsical the song is and the out of world feelings it gave me.

Mr. Blue Sky by Electric Light Orchestra
This song made my list because of the feel and mood of the song.

Life, as it is

FREE WRITING  | GROUP: In This Together

Chaos had struck, but the world fell completely still. Not a car was heard whistling past on the highway, not a footstep reverberated against the outdoor cement floor. Stores were abandoned, the skeletons of what they once were, with long flat boards that hung over the smooth clear windows, doors locked, fences swung closed. Cities that were long before bustling and filled with laughter and pleasant chaos stood frozen, filled with a jaw opening, gruesome silence that gurgled like hot...

It Seems We Have Reached The Dead End

FREE WRITING  | GROUP: In This Together

Uncertainty is what we fear the most.

Its like passing the lake filled with dark creatures, blind folded. It's like walking forward towards the edge of a cliff against the thick wall of heavy mist. I do not know when I will fall, I do not know where my foot might lie, I am unaware of the sharp teeth beneath my toes.

I am sacred, and I know we all are.

Oh my goodness, how many letters have you received from your past self?? I hope you are still sending them to the future.
This is Mads, from April 5, 2020. Does anyone still use that nickname anymore?? You should tell your friends to start. MaddyAnn is just too boring! I should be going to school tomorrow. But I'm not going to. And no, it's not because I like to skip class...

Pages Of Comfort

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

When life seems to be on a tilt,
just a little off axis,
I find comfort in worlds rebuilt
by minds all over
my peace comes from words
from people younger or older
and stories of struggle, heartbreak,
and traveling towards
places unknown
stories untold
and lives unfold

Dear Future Self,

   I don't know when I'll be reading this letter to myself. It could even be tomorrow, seeing as thats still in the future. I would wish to remember a few main things. I would wish to remember my friends, and all the jokes we've shared. I'd wish to remember my school and all my teachers in it. And the last thing I wish to remember is my middle school band teacher, who will remain nameless here...

Empty Streets, Empty Stomach

   The Old Lady Isn't here to feed me today. The child who would play in the sand filled box is also missing. And so is the crying girl with the cloud-like dog. I fly off, abandoning the spot where the Old Lady would fill my stomach with chunks of bread. Maybe the Old Lady has gone somewhere new today. I soar over towering skyscrapers and the big green statue who has been called a Lady of Liberty, towards a...

Bones

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

Smooth calcium with lytic lesions
Holding homes for tiny creatures.
Hollow sounds echo through unseen chambers.
Teeth clack no longer.
Animals scatter as I approach
Taking with them bits of flesh.
Fingers trace forgotten features.
Empty eyes hold secrets
Of a world I'll never know.
