PROMPT: Open Prompt

I am the gentle giant of the deep
I am the one who sings the ocean to sleep
I am the largest of beings in my kingdom
And I am sadly a nations income


I am sentient and full of love
I am a creature you watch from above
I am a mother, sister, aunt and daughter
And I am a victim of unjust slaughter


I am a wonder, the ocean my home
I am the one who forever roams ...

Calteria

PROMPT: Invisible Cities

I glance out my window at the street and pull my bland black jumper closer around my dull grey dress. All around me match pillars of black, grey and white, the colours of Calteria. The builds of our fine city are all an ungly grey that reminds me of the grool they serve us at school. The houses that flank the main city centre are all box like with tiny windows and spread out slightly. We are fortunate enough to...

Scar of the Moon

PROMPT: Story of a Scar

It sits right next to my right eye, curving ever so gently around the pale blue orbs. Curved like a cresent moon, a craddle for my dreams. I was only three when I earned my little moon scar, a hyperactive little three year old who wanted to explore every corner of the world. I was playing out in the backyard, cashing lizards and ducking through the bushes, pretending I was hunting for a long lost treasure when I heard the...

The Innocents

I am the gentle giant of the deep
I am the one who sings the ocean to sleep
I am the largest of beings in my kingdom
And I am sadly a nations income


I am sentient and full of love
I am a creature you watch from above
I am a mother, sister, aunt and daughter

I am a wonder, the ocean my home
I am the one who forever roams
I am a victim of selective ignorance
And I am but one of all the innocents 

Invisible Cities

Calteria

I glance out my window at the street and pull my bland black jumper closer around my dull grey dress. All around me match pillars of black, grey and white, the colours of Calteria. The builds of our fine city are all an ungly grey that reminds me of the grool they serve us at school. The houses that flank the main city centre are all box like with tiny windows and spread out slightly. We are fortunate enough to have gardens were we can add some colour to our lives but other than that we are not permitted to have colour in our lives whether it be painted on our houses or worn on our clothes. Black and grey are the national colours of Calteria and we only wear our national colours because we love our city.
The city itself is a tightly packed space of noise, pollution and despair. The tall office buildings are a dark grey and stand like...

Story of a Scar

Scar of the Moon

It sits right next to my right eye, curving ever so gently around the pale blue orbs. Curved like a cresent moon, a craddle for my dreams. I was only three when I earned my little moon scar, a hyperactive little three year old who wanted to explore every corner of the world. I was playing out in the backyard, cashing lizards and ducking through the bushes, pretending I was hunting for a long lost treasure when I heard the sound of my father's car climbing up the drive way.
Like any young child I was delighted that my dad was home and decided to go met him out the front. I also decided to take the short cut, the path down the side of our red bricked house so as to get to him faster. As I rounded the corner however my feet slipped out from under me and I was sent hurtling towards the ground. A sharp rock...
