PROMPT: Birdsong



Between the road
and the rice field.
Jungle fowl
ca-caw-ca-caw-caw-caww!
Rising in pitch.
Perhaps a chicken?
A wild one, a savage one,
nature's undamaged one. 

Who can guess where the song came from?
Which lark, which swallow?
Who can guess the etymology of
this bird's lyrics?-
chip-chip-chip-chip-chip.
Quicker, quicker. (A quarrel?)

It's simple physics, when a hatchling falls. 
Should be dead but
chip-chiiiip-wi-wi-wik
perhaps it only broke its useless wing. 
Yes, a scornful mother. 
Yes, a grieving mother.

PROMPT: The Peace of Wild Things

There's peace in eventuality,
the way things fall.
Then there's the inbetween. 
There, I'm a ghost between two worlds, 
doing what I must but wishing 
that just once,
I wouldn't have the weight of them
both on my shoulders. 
At the inbetween I try
to find solace like a hatchling
finding her mother. 
It's so difficult. 
Everywhere I step there are 
thorns infesting the ground,
growing hopelessness,
sometimes hopefulness,
for a time when these thorns refuse 
to grow again,

White Swan, Black Swan

PROMPT: Flash Autobiography

"You can be Odette." A young girl, perfectly blonde and adorable, nods her head with absolute certainty and satisfaction. A cry from the background. Blonde turns and notices another girl, with brown hair and a fair face, screaming in indignation. "Why are you sad?" She queries. She wonders if her parents were arguing too this morning, and a small connection tentatively reaches out Brunette. But for the thousandth time, a connection is broken between her and anybody as the sullen...

so much

but i know

wishes don't come true

unless you make them.

i wish

that i never had to wish again.

PROMPT: Your Voice: Climate Change

Mother I promise when I grow up I will help you. Yes, I'll take care of you. 

But Mother, I'm busy- with school, you know. 

Yes-but I do love you.  I can't help you now,

I have no money, no life, not yet. 

I know, yes, it's the everyday things. 

What do you expect? I'm just a kid.

I'm sorry I left the sink running,

the garbage littered on our driveway

made you buy gas driving to and from and...
