Today has been one of the first days in quite a long time that I have not had any inner conflict. Things are in a really good place at the moment so instead of a blog, per se, I just decided to make a little playlist of songs that make me happy. I did try and have a congruent order in there so each flows nicely to the next but as you can see, about half way down I completely gave up on that.

Well, I do have conflict. Still this damn philosophy essay. I have so far written 600 words of tepid nonsense. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I’m not talking about it at great length because I am sick to the back bastard of it. That is all.

Here is a poem. Today’s prompt comes from HRTVerse and is ‘home without walls’.

Quantum shifting

expanding contracting

flickering dying.

My ceiling is a void

that keeps me cold at night

yet warms my heart with beauty.

You know the drill by now. Micro-poetry means more than one!

Here is a(nother) poem. The prompt is ‘Dry Your Eyes’ from CapturedPoets

Now the localised weather.

Storm clouds have gathered

over Furrowed Vale,

limpid pools flooding

the Fleshy Plains.

Residents of Filtrum

are advised to stay indoors.

In poetry, we do not believe in clichés. Here’s another, because three certainly isn’t a crowd.

Here is a poem. The prompt is ‘façade’ and comes from Soulhoot.

My friend is a bauble.

Sure shiny on reflection

but empty inside

and, despite the façade

only useful once a year.
