This weeks Writing Challenge:
” Making a new start is never as simple as it seems on paper. It’s easy to talk about losing a few pounds or giving up the job you hate to weave animal-shaped baskets on a tropical island, but less so to make it happen, and keep at it.
In this week’s writing challenge, we’re asking you to write a short piece of creative writing (fiction/poetry/prose poetry/freeform mindjazz/whatever floats your boat) on the theme of Starting Over.”
A Tidal Wave Forest's bark teeth Chew away the distant rumble Of the cars and crowded skyscrapers Leisurely the breathing pillars grin Tickled by the treecreeper Its light-feathered scrambling Pirouetting my head higher Till I'm taken to that line Where all elements blend Into fine-fibred mists A vivid palette of an alchemist An elastic dance of coexistence Symbiosis, harmony, me My heartbeat suddenly In rhythm, a drum of life Beating even the steepest Steps of happiness Its pulse flowing through me In rushing rollercoasters of blood Awakening in me A tidal wave of new beginnings
