January 17th, 2022/all the superpowers

Today’s Prompt: What is a superpower you’d love to have? I can’t pick. I’m too indecisive. So here’s a poem about all the super powers. Healing powers, rainbow towers, raising earthen golems, writing magic poems, taking flight, glowing bright, hands burning with fire, owning a war bard’s lyre, stealing life by a shadow knife, growingContinue reading “January 17th, 2022/all the superpowers”

January 16th, 2022/speaking of the passion flame

Today’s Prompt: What is a cause you’re passionate about and why? When I write a novel, it comes from some deep, passionate place within my heart. When I write a poem, it’s because of some budding feeling or intriguing thought. So I may not possess the burning energy to end world hunger, or stop allContinue reading “January 16th, 2022/speaking of the passion flame”

January 15th, 2022/life advice tastes good with rice

Today’s Prompt: What is a life lesson you feel everyone can benefit from learning? “Absolutes” Dear stranger to my brain, Some things must be experienced to be understood, but not everything must be seen to be believed. Sometimes, I believe I see what I’ve never experienced– My trials draw near parallels to another’s pain andContinue reading “January 15th, 2022/life advice tastes good with rice”

Cory’s Story: conversations but as pies

Hello. Nobody can hear you, what do you think you’re doing? Trying to see if anybody can hear me. … Nobody can hear me, I know. I got that. Where do you think they are? You’re asking me? Might as well. Not close to the front, that’s where. Where do you think we are? InContinue reading “Cory’s Story: conversations but as pies”

January 14th, 2022/breaking the 4th wall

Today’s Prompt: Write about a challenge you faced and overcame. This prompt feels incredibly vague to me, and I wasn’t sure what direction to go with it. Did you know that literally every story with a plot, is about a character facing a challenge and overcoming it? Unfortunately, “every story with a plot” doesn’t fitContinue reading “January 14th, 2022/breaking the 4th wall”

January 13th, 2022/independent of dawn-dead dreams

Today’s Prompt: What does your ideal day look like? My ideal day doesn’t have a face, so I don’t know what it looks like. /end snark Honestly, that was my only idea about this prompt. I don’t know what my ideal day looks like, physical form or no. So here’s a poem about some non-idealContinue reading “January 13th, 2022/independent of dawn-dead dreams”

January 11th, 2022/courage rain

Today’s Prompt: What does it mean to live boldly? I live as bold as a raindrop. I gather my self in the troposphere until I accumulate bigger than my dust-fears, and I yield to earth’s gravity and I plummet ever so courageously. ***2nd poem*** This potion comes in three parts: One, the thumb thimbles toContinue reading “January 11th, 2022/courage rain”

January 10th, 2022/blood magic

Today’s Prompt: What are 5 things you’re grateful for today? (I was feeling rather uninspired by today’s prompt, so here is a scene I wrote that reminds me why I’m grateful to be alive. Interpretations/thoughts always welcome!) I trudge through these night plains. Clouds of insects guide my path. Dizzyingly, they flit about the fields,Continue reading “January 10th, 2022/blood magic”

January 9th, 2022/ink to the bees

Today’s Prompt: What do people incorrectly assume about you? (my train of thought upon seeing this prompt: “I don’t know what people assume about me, it’s in their heads.” “Ooh, what if you knew what was in people’s heads?” “Ooh let’s write a poem about telepathy.” So here we are.) Thoughts don’t have edges theContinue reading “January 9th, 2022/ink to the bees”

January 7th, 2022/do dogs like anti jokes?

Today’s Prompt: What makes you laugh? One time I (Jordyn) tried for approximately a minute to listen to calming dog music on youtube. Except it made me laugh uncontrollably even after the music quit playing. That was a strange day. I’ve never had an experience like that since, even on the few occasions where IContinue reading “January 7th, 2022/do dogs like anti jokes?”
