Acir Atsoc

PROMPT: Living Locales

The deep swept around her on all sides.  Some days the deep was wild with waves and laughing children and other days the tidepools were her bare feet.  Her skin was shiny and smooth, the sand soft and boulders became pebbles.  She had her flaws, but they made her all the more beautiful.  Everyone soon fell in love with her.  She was a place of security, comfort.  She fed her children through the fleshy coconuts and mangos.  She was generous,...

Waterfall

PROMPT: Lyrics Unsung

My glasses are smudged, they force my sight to show lies. 
I forget I have those glasses sometimes.  I asked Him to give me new ones and he did.  
Pristine, fresh, clear.  They show truth.  I ask Him to come, seeking, searching, He teaches me I don't have to strive.
And He answers.
It pours.  Drenching me.  Covering me.  Freeing me.
In a trickle, a wave, a river in surrounds me on every side.  All my sides, inside and...

Garden Space

PROMPT: Geography of Home

Red and brown and orange and yellow.  The colors of fall.  The color of thanksgiving and my Mom's favorite hues.  Our couches and walls and most everything in our house mimic this theme.  In the fall we wrap artificial strings of berries and leaves around our banisters and at Christmas time, garlands of lush green pine needles, fake of course.  But my room always stays a living spring haven.  It's constantly spring in my room.  At night I turn on...

Costa Rica Memories

PROMPT: I Remember

I remember the laughter and mild panic as the mango rolled down the beach and started bobbing in the huge waves that surge, stronger even the sadness in my heart.  The sadness in my heart that the waves slowly melt away by each ripple.  I remember the salty - sweet - flavorful yellowy, warm colored fruit than no store bought mango could compare to.  Playing in the sand, digging holes and making piles that way imagined scraped the sky.  But...

Acid Rain

PROMPT: Turned to Stone

She slid her finger along the car window's smooth glass, in awe of the tiny phenomena she had never noticed before - raindrops curling up and down like mini rivers in a glass desert.  The sky was throwing down water, striking the sidewalk.  The sidewalk that would not be seen again for days, because as she slid she finger along clear class, she knew the intricate plan forming around her would disturb all citizen life, even those oblivious pedestrians on the...

King of this House

PROMPT: Creature View

I am king of this house, and I love my citizens.  Sometimes my citizens throw me out of my castle, but I am a merciful and just king.  Surely it is simply because my glory is too much for their eyes.  I am the wonder of creation, a cat.  I am the cat.  Here comes a citizen of mine.  Though all my citizens are much larger than me, I am more regal.  I tilt my head in greeting - oh,...

Wildlife

PROMPT: Collective Voice

We love those who hear, those who listen to the resounding crashes on the shore or endless rustle of leaves. We treasure those who walk and talk for hours, just to be heard and hear.  We never want to stop for our quest has always been - never started and never will end.  We exist to be.  We are the crashing winds and rushing leaves scattered through towns who seem to have abandoned nature.  We are those tiny wonders that push our...

Why, oh why, oh why?

PROMPT: Beyond Reason

Why does the dew sprinkle us every morning and each droplet imitates a jewel, yet those pearly diamonds are rarely noticed?
How do our hearts built up a wall and beyond that, a moat is?

Why are we entranced by our thin pixelated screens when a world of discovery is waiting if we simply tear our eyes away?
How do we manage to find more tasks to do when mountains and birds and people beyond lay?

Where does the wind...
