Poem: Searching for One Moment

kaleidoscope

(c) 12 Nov 2013 Windy Johansen

on this separate road
we’re crawling among the pebbles
among the sharp pebbles

on this separate road
we’re searching in this stale desert
in this stale desert

searching for one moment

you and I cry
and we cry and, oh
in crying we become

a fountain gushing
sadness is, sadness is,
an unfinished statement
sadness is, sadness is
sadness is not everything

and there will be a new day

in these desperate eyes, you’ll see
we’re changing into new people
into new people

searching for one moment

you and I cry
and we cry and, oh
in crying we become

a fountain gushing
sadness is, sadness is,
an unfinished statement
sadness is, sadness is
sadness is not everything

and there will be a new day

nevermind yesterday
searching for one moment
nevermind tomorrow
searching for one moment
nevermind our whole future
searching for one moment, one single moment

Writing Prompt: Space is HUGE (and Gloriously Awesome)

space is huge (and gloriously awesome)

(c) 3 Dec 2013 Windy Johansen

The phrase this time is: space is huge (and gloriously awesome).

Our society is often enthralled by the wonder of space. So many possibilities. So many things to explore.

I see God in this vastness. Divine beauty has been placed in front of me, and all I can do is be thankful.

What do you see?

I also thought of some other questions to ask yourself about what you’re writing.

A Less than Poetic Announcement

I’m going to have to stop doing the “A Poetic Look At” series as often. I can’t do such long posts every week with the way my arms are right now. I’m going to make it a special sort of thing that’s done roughly twice or three times a month.

Also the “5 Ways” series is getting pared down too, largely because I can’t seem to come up with enough ideas. I’ll write posts in that series when I actually get an idea, which…really doesn’t give you much of a schedule for that. I’m sorry.

But I’m not going away. I’m just..redecorating, moving furniture… that sort of thing.

The good news is that all this paring will make room for me to write way more writing prompts. Writing prompts are so nice, because the empty page is terrifying to me. (I think that’s likely true for you too.

This also gives me the chance to share more of the stuff that shows the inherent beauty and artwork in life. Life is full of creative geniuses from loads of fields. I want you to see these things and squee as much as I do.

Doing this will allow me to post 6 days a week. Yay!

Love you! <3
