Daily Prompt: Replacement

How easy the word can slip from
our lips? Oh just replace that. Only
when that is referred to people, it use to
be look down upon but now its slowly
becoming the norm. Yet when those
individuals are replaced, its never the
same after they are gone with placed with
strangers that don’t hold the same values
as those that came before. The environments
begins to die from inside out until only
the outside is beauty but when you open it
you will find the rotting core. What was once
healthy, is now a clinging on for dear life with
no hope of revival.

Daily Prompt: Scent

The sweet smells of spring,
that leads into the musk of
summer as skunks have the
run of the neighborhood late
night. But then the heavy
scents, leads to light frost
of fall. Cleaner, crisp air
taking away the ill scents of
summer with all the smoke
and smog but the crisp air of
spring is also welcome.

Daily Prompt: Scent

Daily Prompt: Yellow

Yellow can be a soothing
color but also can be enticing
as well. It can call forth the
warmth of the sun but can
also call forth burning of
flesh. Yellow can also call
forth the greed in the hearts
of men. Blinding to anything
else but the desire for riches.
The yellow of sunflowers can
bring forth the wonder of life.
Yellow is also the color of caution,
while it can also call forth confident
and courage. Yellow can be soft and warm,
while others see yellow as a curse.

Daily Prompt: Yellow

The World Ablaze

The world is ablaze with
change yet those blazes that
have come from certain
movement has caused much
chaos and concern. Yet anarchy
is held at bay but those who
have chosen to face the next
four year with love and peace.

Daily Prompt: Automatic

The norm was you get up,
you go to work or school
and do it all again the next
with the occasional stop for
food pick up.  Only now the
automatic life has no swag

organic life where we are
conscious of our chooses.
Chooses we choice for
ourselves not ones that
were laid out for us by
others.

Daily Prompt: Automatic

Daily Prompt: Filter

Often we are told that filters
are required before drinking
water from the sink. Yet I
asked myself, why? If the water
is as clean as they say, why use a
filter? Filters aren’t only used for
only water because it seem tv, radio
and platforms used to get our information
are also. I ask myself, why? What could
possibly not want others to know? Only the
filters are no longer working anymore because
the truth can no longer be held back. Like water
behind a dam when it begins to swell and turn
violently wanting to escape and seek join with
her brother the stream.

Daily Prompt: Filter

Another challenging prompt which I found that the words didn’t want to come or rather I was stuck and thinking to hard perhaps.

Book Progress

I had to play catch up last night as this weekend I wasn’t feel all that great but finally got everything copy and pasted into my document. I am going to handle the editing at the end, right now I am trying to organize the poems where I feel like they need to go so there is a steady flow. I have yet to decided whether or not to have pictures in the book. I am also in the process of draft some covers for the book too.
