by Caycey Pound

Today I opened the earth. Rushed
scoops I shoveled innards
outward: a hole in-ground,
carved-out birthplace.
To see no more darkness,
I put you in no more than darkness:
I let dirt herd your blooming roots,
soil our worries away and leave
both of us warm, reaching for the sun.

I smile. “As long as you don’t put any heartbreaking movies, I’m game. Not in the mood to cry today.”

She punches me softly. “Just because I love sad movies doesn’t mean I don’t know anything else. Today you’ll meet another side of me.” She winked and smiled at me coyly. I shook my head, laughing as I followed her into my room, better known as our den.

Writing Prompt, I.

We don’t have specific issues with specific themes… We had a hard time with challenges and their deadlines… But, we still wanted to give our (potential) contributors a better feeling of what we are most interested in!

So, we decided to start a series of occasional writing (and art) prompts.

These will be completely non-binding and are only here to help inspire you and to keep us more concentrated on our mission 🙂

Feel free to join any time by sending us your thoughts, words and art!

The first introductory prompt is simple. Or is it? 😉

Quote of the Week, #10

And the dealer wants you thinking
That it’s either black or white
Thank God it’s not that simple
In my secret life

Leonard Cohen, In My Secret Life (Ten New Songs, 2001)

Out of everything he wrote, the lyrics above might seem like a weird choice. But the truths we connect to in songs and art can sometimes be so simply put and still not lose the strength.

What are some of the verses of songs that touch and inspire you the most?
