1. Show us that thing.

Describe: feelings, clothing, environment, purpose, friends.

Impatiently inside a rusty pile of pallets. I wear the rain like a friendly umbrella. A spider moved in next to me the other day, we await Memorial Day together. We have no memories. (an unused red garden brick)

2. 5 senses feeling.

Describe: sight, sound, taste, touch, smell.

A wild yellow rosebush pushes it’s branches out to East and North. A wisp of thorns brush against my window during spring breezes. (Disjointed)

(It’s a prompt, not perfection)

3. Color Wish.

What does your favorite color wish for?

Blue wishes of sky. It wishes it were freedom. Not the gelled sadness of polluted water. Not loss winding down the circular drain. Wishing for the feathers to startle the Jay. Loud and Lively.
