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

Tis a ball that traps the deepest of oceans
Sometimes a hill with daffodils scattered round.
In others, tis the verdant glow of an emerald
In others yet, a swirly mist,
a collection of storm clouds
In other still, tis a pyramid
a rainbow shining in all shades and hues,
tis the window of the heart, the seer of the soul
the star that peers, searches, reflects the truth.

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,...

The Broken Family

PROMPT: The Unseen  | GROUP: In This Together

The conflict
Of that perfect family
Hatred rising
Tension boiling

They hide it
Hoping no one
Sees through
Their facade

The secrets within
That none know
They're just a flawed family
Putting on a show

a deeper peace

PROMPT: The Unseen  | GROUP: In This Together

spiders silk, draped over wooden hands, 
dew collecting silently on her hem
across the water, pussy-willows beckon
to the orchestra of bullfrogs, hidden in the sweetgrass
the sunrise brushes over the treetops
sending sprinkles of day splashing to
the water gliders, skimming along
silently

the stillness is broken by the swoosh
water trickling onto water
slicing through the surface,
a lithe canoe drifts
slim, golden, the boat slides ashore,
and two feet leap out,
making subtle indents in the soft...

COVID-19

FREE WRITING  | GROUP: In This Together


I miss the smiles and laughs
The hellos and the good-byes 
I miss the late night studies
And early morning cries

I miss how life used to be
Before the virus plagued,
Before we were all stuck at home 
Where we sit and contemplate

It all seems like a dream,
One that will fade away,
But I know deep inside me
That’s just a lie I say

I remember when it started
And I just shook my head
But now...

Dear Me,

Everyone Can Be Kind

PROMPT: This I Believe  | GROUP: In This Together

Everyone can be kind. This I believe. When a young child waves, you smile and wave back. When a dog runs up to you looking for a pat on the head, you pet the dog. Strangers nod to each other as they walk by, never to see each other again and yet they still nod. These are all small forms of kindness. Everyone does these, therefore everyone can be kind.

Dear me

Dear me,
You and I are very different. We are the same person but right now I am very sick and you are not. I am not the normal type of sick. Instead, I'm the type of sick you get when you know something isn't right, but you cannot help. Covid isn't right, but I can't stop it. war isn't right, but I can't stop it. Climate change isn't right, but it isn't looking like I can stop that either....

Dear fourteen-year-old me,

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...

Finding Conection

PROMPT: “Only Connect"  | GROUP: In This Together

This whole pandemic has really caused our society to fall apart in more ways than one with several issues not exactly connected but still very real.

While adjusting to this change I have found comfort in connecting with fellow believers over Zoom chats. I started a Bible study on Zoom so now every Thursday I'm on there and I just feel relieved, glad, positive; you know how it is.

So, I would say Zoom is definitely the first of five...

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...

A Meloncholy And Undieing Love

PROMPT: Creature View  | GROUP: In This Together

Some days were spent waiting. Waiting for them. Waiting for those kind, loving humans that fed me a scrap or a piece of... something. The point was that they cared. That there was a consistency; I always knew they would come around with something outstretched in their salty, warm hands. I would lick softly out of their palms knowing that not one unkind word would be spoken. 

Now it's different, now they don't come out. Now I wait for what...

The power to create life itself on a page which is the looking glass to another universe;

he is our most resilient soldier
marching on

there from the beginning
before life itself

the rise of empires
the end of eras
the fall of gods

he has seen all these still
marching on

staying now
in every aspect of life

minutes
days
months

he takes these forms
marching on

forever watching
as he herds us forward

we fail
the stars collapse
a new beginning

in this dawn he won't change

While the bushfires destroyed,
Everything that they owned,

Were you nearby,
While this disaster happened,
Or did you not even know,
What was going on?

Eating Others

PROMPT: This I Believe  | GROUP: In This Together

In almost every story there is out there, vampires are considered evil creatures, preying on human beings with no mercy for their lives. When such beings die, they don't leave behind a body, but they perish through thin air. The explanations for this is because of how they're evil and because of how they prey on human beings. Another explanation for this includes how they live forever, which is against the flow of natural law. 
Yet is it the vampire's...
