See you later

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

When erasers finish,  
When youth fades away, 
and When candles burn out, 
We would always say "Goodbye." 

When rivers dry out, 
When the Rubik's cube is solved, 
and When a song ends, 
We may say, "See you later." 

When we part today, let's say, "See you later," to each other.

Love

PROMPT: The Unseen  | GROUP: In This Together

What's our first thoughts when we hear the word, "Love"? 
Soul mate, kisses, holding hands
The spark in our hearts that make us blush
The wanting to be close to someone

Yet we may often forget the love 
from our families, 
from our friends
from our mentors that pop in throughout our lives 

The pancakes that your mother fix
The gloves that your grandmother knit
The baseball that your dad throws at you
The finger paint drawing that your sibling...

Imprisoned

PROMPT: Creature View  | GROUP: In This Together

    Giant beings with long limbs have accompanied me all my life. I'm often locked in a small cage, locked in with some random buddies that look like me. My life is rather aimless, as giants give me my food and water, and I poop and urinate in the same place in which I must stay, for the invisible walls of my cage was too high to climb. The other guys are always fighting, and I only have one friend to...

dream big, little one

Close your eyes, darling, she whispers.
Close your eyes.

floating on a cloud, soft as cotton sheets
a moon gleaming among the starlight
reaching out for the unknown
hopping like a frog over waterfall-splattered rocks
ice crystals glowing rainbow in the sun
climbing a ladder towards the sky
a gentle breeze nudging against skin
golden roses smelling of apple pie
sailing the endless ocean
scaling the tallest trees
smiling and laughing
a world where there is water and food...

I am old

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

I close my eyes,
Every note is like sunshine,
It tastes like summer,
And I drift away into a world;

I am old, but I am happy,
I still have light in my eyes a spring in my step,
I am thankful for my silver hair,
For my wrinkles;

These wrinkles hold memories,
Beautiful dreams of peace,
Of smiling faces and happy voices,
"By God," they say, "we're free;"

I am old, but my teachings live on,
Like a large...

Alone Together

PROMPT: The Unseen  | GROUP: In This Together

Softly she hides
Forgotten, aside
From all of the world she shies

Alone with no friend
When will this end?
Is hope around the next bend? 

She screams aloud
Wants to be found
She's hidden inside the crowd

Covered by a screen
Completely unseen
Disguised by something between

But she's not alone
She will find a home
Amid the other unknown

Will you open your eyes
To the hidden that cry?
Help them tear off the disguise

Have you been...

an alley cat during quarantine

PROMPT: Creature View  | GROUP: In This Together

I guess you could say I’m sort of a lone wolf, or I suppose a lone-feline. I never minded being on my own. I had nothing to hold me down. I could go about this gigantic city as I wished, yet I stopped feeling that way the day a warm, aged man greeted me.

His hair was snowy white like mine used to be. I was beautiful before the city life scarred me, and stained my pure coat the color...

The Sensation of Being Alone

FREE WRITING  | GROUP: In This Together

I have a hard time leaving people I love. I was the five-year-old that thought my world was ending when my parents tried to drop me off at school. It still feels as if my world is falling apart, but now I try to exercise reasonability. I understand that, even if I feel helpless and panicked, it's not a deadly threat. I remind myself that this fight or flight response is caused by past trauma. I'm usually able to control...

What if home isn't a place? What if home is not there to be found? What if home is a soul that is haunting you? Home... keep running till you're there... 

What if home isn't a place?


Home isn't a place. Home is a feeling. A feeling of happiness. I feel at home with my instruments. My violin, my piano, my ukulele, my guitar, if I have them with me, I am at home, no matter where I am.

Shouting underwater

PROMPT: Timeless Counsel  | GROUP: In This Together

I scream from under the waves,
"Nooooo, not again,"
Tears flow and cover my face,
Like hot springs;

My head is throbbing,
I see black spots before my eyes,
But I keep screaming,
Even though they cannot hear me;

I watch them shout,
I want to look away, but I can't,
Our world had just finished scrubbing off the blood,
But now, she wants to paint it red again;

Large explosions resound in my mind,
And the screams are unbearable, ...

  1. Virtual plays! My theater has already released five fully-virtual plays, and another is in the works right now. Everything from auditions to the final shoot can be done via Zoom or Google Meets.
  2. Choreography sessions. My online dance classes for the summer are over for now, but I still often meet with some other dancers to work on choreographing pieces for shows in the future.

Because a woman picked up a can

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

A woman picks up a can,
She shakes her head in disgust,
And throws it into the garbage can,

A large hawk squacks from above,
He was about to bring it to his nest,
He settles on a fat cricket;

The hawks child flies through the skies,
While a poor girl stands on the edge of a bridge, about to jump,
She sees the hawk as it flies to a sign that says: Don't go silently, we have your back.

    She wandered the empty streets of the forest. They were built so that only she and a few other peaceful creatures, mostly prey, could walk on it. Humans would never walk on it. Sinara's mother had always taught her that they were bloodthirsty, primitive beasts. She told stories of how they forced their hard roads into their territory and none of the animals could do anything.

Ice Cream with 100s and 1000s

PROMPT: At Home  | GROUP: In This Together

She sat there, spine cushioned on a frayed, brown leather armchair positioned by a bay window- allowing the world a sneak peak of the home she had known her entire life. Rich umber fingers wrapped around a large mug, embellished with white dots on a faded pink background, the steaming brown liquid inside evaporated the feeling of displacement lingering within her. Although it was easy for her to grasp the warmth from old, chipped china; she couldn't grasp a definition...
