Scene in the park in autumn

PROMPT: Novel Writing Competition 2018


    "Hey kid," James' mother burst through the door.
    "Ya?" James was on the couch. He sat up abruptly.
    "Grab your coat. We're leaving." She was rifling through the boxes in the kitchen. She snagged a granola bar from the cabinet.
    "Where?" James nearly fell off the couch. He knew better than to get in the way of his mother's momentum.
    "You'll see. Just get your coat for god's sake. We have to leave before it...

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,

I am from, inspired by George Ella Lyon

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
the victorian floor making steps a chorus
