‘A’ to ‘Z’ Writing Prompt Challenge #5
“A person without…”

'a' to 'z' writing prompt poster #5

A PERSON WITHOUT

A person without dreams
Belongs to nothing
Carrying light is heavy
Darkness is no stranger
Enter this world carefully
Fallen doorways broken forever
Great is the ruin left behind
Hatred brought it down
Identity matters too much
Jaded those lacking understanding
Killing has become too easy
Love is slipping away
Melting into quicksand
Never to be honored again
Opening one’s heart is forgotten
People want a line of words
Quickly delivered on devices
Rapping our way to Nothingness
Staying alone like lonely people
Thinking dreams appear in ads
Understanding absent brains
Victory to the corporations
Workers fastened again in chains
Xanthippe nags Socrates brain
Yanking his beard causing him pain
Zany the dream that war is a game

A to Z Challenge #3: “After the end…” Choice Writer of the Week

the secret keeper:

A to Z Writing Challenge #3: “After the end…”
CHOICE WRITER OF THE WEEK is Shawn MacKenzie

Her poem is written with a haunting sadness. Holding us close with her words. And Shawn succeeds grandly using the alphabet from A to Z with perfection. I think she should try her hand at Prose Poetry more often. The way in which she expresses words in this style is perfect. The way words work for her is beautiful and flowing with sensitivity. Excellent poem. It needs to be read many more times. The depth carries inner meaning. A-Z works well for poems of all designs.

I must add, I went back to reread Shawn’s poem and gained a fresher look. It was late in the night when I read “After the end…” for the first time. Her delicacy of expressing deep pain & emotions through symbolic word imagery is felt. Her poem is beautiful. It seems the poet in her wanted to get out. Poetry is a special way in which to express what is inexpressible in any other mode. It is a reflection of the soul. jk <3

THE CHOICE WRITER OF THE WEEK is Shawn MacKenzie

Originally posted on MacKENZIE's Dragon's Nest:

I preface my offering for this week’s A – Z Challenge by saying that I am a rare and often indifferent poet. Why I thought to try verse is a puzzlement even to myself. Caveats done. No apologies, no excuses. (And no titles.)

Memory opener... Memory opener…

After the end of sorrow comes remembering
Before the first joy comes forgetting.
Caught between lightning and fireflies
Dancing across the skin
Every moment trembles.

Flashes of sweet damask rose
Greet then abandon like campaign
Handshakes at the country fair,
Insouciant visitors from a past when
Jacks clattered across the floor.
Kaddish sung in childhood games.

Language is lost, then found,
Manifestations of days and
Nights tumbling
One into another.

Pick up a
Quill dripping with Lethe’s ink,
Reclaiming before each papered stroke
Senses: tickled smell and taste,
Touch, sight, and sound;
Ubiquitous memories all, before they
Vanish and the
World is stripped clean to the bone.

“Answer nothing…”

A – Z Writing Prompt Challenge #4
“Answer nothing…”

'a' to 'z' writing prompt poster #4

ANSWER NOTHING

Answer nothing
Be alert
Cry loud
Do remember
Everything once
Forget nothing
Go a head
Hate loss
Indulge needs
Justify What?!
Keep secret
Love quietly
Meditate silence
Never EverLand
Open door locks
Panic deny
Quick – Notice!
Reawaken Always
Speak silently
Tell stories
Underneath broken
Vastness ends
Walk Light
Xmas Sad
Young too Old
ZEN balances Out
