In Response To:

V.J.’s Weekly Challenge #72: Wish – What’s in a wish? Do you dare to dream, to wish? This week, I challenge you to set your imagination free, unlock your heart, and wish.

Sadje’s What Do You See #3 – What words would you give to this picture?

She gazes at the art inside 

to take her where her dreams lie

instead of settling for just a wish

which she cannot seem to accomplish

it helps her to escape her life’s reality

of her marriage’s violent incompatibility

she tells herself that one day she will be free

but until that day the art remains her reprieve.

For this challenge, I provide one word and a list of its antonyms. The challenge is to use the prompt word AND one (or more) of its antonyms in some form of writing (or creative work). 

Today’s word: dreamer

Antonyms: hardnose, pragmatist, realist.

World Building: Murabito Border

Through the portal

is a dreamer’s realm

a place for a sabbatical

from being a daily realist

enduring all the seasons of life

and finding rest in the

sunlight of her dreams.

A Night’s Moment

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #81



This video inspired me. Maybe you like to see it or use it as a creative nudge.

“Don’t simply brush away the inexplicable connectedness we’ll occasionally taste as we experience certain people, places and works of art. These mere seconds of quite synchronicity and understanding count. They always, always count. You just have to know and believe it. ~Victoria Erickson      -Photo by Photo.Manic on Flickr

In a night’s moment…

the inner eyes gaze into the ebony ascent

where the thorns of the soul do not bleed

a river of tears finally begins to recede

and pain evolves into a soothing numb

wafting in the sweet scent of escape’s succumb

until reality’s stark light shines its brightness

we grow accustomed to darkness.

Inescapable: A Mind Without Doors Where The Forgotten People Dwell

MLMM Sunday Writing Prompt – It’s All In The Title


Inescapable is a mind without doors
it is a dangerous place to visit these uncharted shores
here, writhing are the thoughts of frozen filaments
awakening the prey of soul scathing darkness
this is where the forgotten people dwell
beyond the realms where their voice is quell
so no one has to be reminded of the vile truth
of how they were raised in depraved uncouth
inexorable is the sentence handed down to them
by this world’s judgement of unmerciful precondemn 
derived from its baseless fear of the unknown
the unknown; souls deprived of a love never given
but breathe unto their heart a Love Divine
and the world will see a healing refined
no longer will they be left in the shadows of the cellar
instead rise from the ashes of discrimination’s conquer
opening the doors of a once inescapable mind
and be free to leave their prison of darkness behind
once again proving to the world…the power of a Love Divine
