Today from OctPoWriMo:
Poetry Prompt: Quickly write down how and what you have done in the past that has helped you feel most connected to your inner self, the Divine, the Universe, and how you came to be in that state. Choose one to do to bring you to that connected feeling and then free write for ten minutes.
Word Prompt: Connected
Sentence Starter: I feel connected when...
When I am connected in, my body feels...
This is what I wrote in response after lots of meandering writing. I've never written about this so I am grateful the stage was set so skillfully for me by my precious co-host Morgan Dragonwillow.
Now: Lilacs Reach the Clouds
face lifts, the surface almost, isn’t...
arms pierce through the sky-water,
breast stroking crawling butterly
looking for the
place where she would find breath
recklessly she slices still upward
into blackness where she knew
pure need had a home
pushed back, tumbling not stroking thrown
into body form
the shouted “NO!” one else could hear
an assault, a mugging, a brawl
snarling roars rise from my gut in
Suddenly I’m heard by all
silence wraps me in her arms
stay here, soil bound
denim to dirt
head in hands
