A Tidal Wave – Starting over, DP Challenge

15 Jan

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
