PROMPT: Why I Write

I write because the words
already live inside me

mid-autumn musings

PROMPT: Your World in Three Senses

have you ever thought about
how you are aware of your limbs
of where they are in space
even when you can't see them

I rest my hands on the bark of a dying
maple, his body insect hollowed
I hope my warmth lingers, a comfort,
as I try to plug up the holes in his body

beneath bark and lichen both
(if I disregard the interlopers)
he is smooth

I have a secret, I am fallible,
an animal still, I...

I make you end the call

PROMPT: Unconventional

in spite of
the desperation of
your written word, you have nothing
to say

to fill these empty minutes
I listen to your silence,
and

from heat, now from rain

PROMPT: Where I'm From

I am from a wicked thing
our bushes hungry, so often trimmed
that they from spite would never bloom
instead, with thorns, they skinned my shins
I am from the landing of
twin staircases, steep ways down

so my sister and I could not capture each...

A Thousand Open Doors

PROMPT: Five Beginnings

    In the house by the meadow, there were a thousand open doors. 

    I looked out into the blackness of a nocturnal sea. It took me a moment to realize the glint that I saw was from more than my lantern. Something was looking back.

    To tell this story, I must begin with my mother. 

    The shopkeeper was known to tourists through tinkling bells and bright, hollow things. To the locals she pedaled...
