Poem: Anxiety

by shiori_makiba

Can't remember what this style of poetry is called. Again, trying to work though my emotions and anxiety with creativity instead of continued withdrawal.

Edit: The style is called acrostic. Thanks [personal profile] alatefeline!

Warning: Anxiety


Anxiety

Anxiety is a difficult beast to subdue.

Nothing and everything can set it off. It can

X-out your strength to keep striving forward.

It can make you feel worthless. It

Encourages you to feel guilty for not having enough spoons

To cope with everything by yourself. But

You are not alone.


Reach out there, almost

Everything is fixable.

All you need is to be patient and gentle with yourself.

Call on those who love and support you

Help is available. It's


Out there. I

Understand that it's hard to ask for help sometimes (all the time) but

Try it, good help can be hard to find but so worth it the effort.

 Poem: Roller-coaster

by shiori_makiba

A free-verse poem, expressing a lot of my feelings for the last few months. I know I've been silent but I find it hard to interact when my emotions are this all over the place. Feeling more even and stable now – we'll see how it goes.

Warning: References to negativity and bigotry.

THANK MUSE IT'S FRIDAY OPEN!

Thank Muse It's Friday is now closed for prompts. Thanks to everyone who participated. I'm still working on your pieces and I will send them to you as soon as I'm done writing them and doing one last check for errors.

What is Thank Muse It's Friday?

In a similar vein to ysabetwordsmith's Poetry Fishbowl, Thank Muse It's Friday is a prompt-and-writing session. It is one part writing exercise, one part audience builder, and hopefully one part money maker.

This month the theme is “I Need A Hero.”

How does it work?

It's very easy. Leave me a prompt or prompts in the comment section below. I'll pick one and give you some words in the form of a poem, prose, or demi-fiction. Primarily I use the PM system here on Dreamwidth for that but that is not avaliable or not working for some reason, I will e-mail it to you. I promise not to keep anyone's e-mail address afterward.

The prompt call lasts at least twenty-four hours from time of first posting at about 8 AM US Eastern Time on 7/29/2016.

Which universes to I do write in?

{A} I have a number of imaginary friends who are hoping for some time on stage in front of a non-me audience. Prompts that don't specify a setting will feature one of them.

{B} So far my original series include: 'Ohana, about an interracial cross-orientation polyfamily, the Garden which features the larger community that 'Ohana live in (currently listed with 'Ohana), and the newest Capes and Masks, a superhero setting.

{C} The Berettaflies thread for Polychrome Heroics.

{D} I'm open to writing fiction or demi-fiction for Ysabetwordsmith or Dialecticdreamer's open settings. The resulting pieces will be sent to them as well as the prompter since it is their sandbox.

{E} Fan Fic prompts are also welcomed. I have too many fandoms to list here. Ask anyway and if's not one I've seen/read, I'll need either a good premier and some extra time or an alternative. We'll work it out.

The Theme

As aforementioned, this month's theme is “I Need A Hero.”

I'm soliciting ideas for superheroes, superheras, capes of no particular or both genders, ethical supervillains, ordinary folks doing heroic things, everyday heroes, doing the right thing, standing up for others, standing up for yourself, saving the world, saving others, saving yourself, and anything else that fits the theme.

Anything else?

{1} For the first time, I'm set up for donations. Note that donations are NOT required nor is any particular amount. But any funds you want to kick my way are very much appreciated.









 

{2} I'd still like constructive feedback. It is not required but appreciated since one of the points of these sessions is to improve and expand my writing skills.

{3} Signal boosting is also very much appreciated.

{4} Please let me know if you have donated or boosted the signal or both because you have earned yourself a second prompt fill.

{5} To help prevent me from missing anyone and keeping track of needed thank yous for signal boosts and such, I make a list of prompts, boosters, etc. If I managed to miss you despite this precaution, please send me a message.

Poem: Freedom

by shiori_makiba / Ashley Weyer

Word Count: 52 words in 10 lines


An attempt at writing tanka.


“Freedom”

Freedom, it was

something different to

many people.

It could be a grand thing.

It could be a small thing.


Size did not matter.

It was not the important

thing to freedom.

It was choice that mattered.

Having it and making it.

Poem: Surprise

by shiori_makiba

I missed prompting and signal boosting for Magpie Monday so I wrote a quick gift poem for [personal profile] dialecticdreamer. Which she requested that I post to the blog so here it is.


“Surprise”


Something happens, it is

Unexpected but sometimes that is a

Really good thing. It could be

People you have missed calling out of the blue or

Receiving a 'just because' gift. Or

It could be something nice done just to see you

Smile. And

Everyone deserves to smile.

{2} The results of one prompt will be posted up on the blog for everyone to enjoy after the prompters have gotten their pieces. It may be one of those pieces or an extra one from an extra prompt.

{3} To help prevent me from missing anyone and keeping track of needed thank yous for signal boosts and such, I make a list of prompts, boosters, etc. If I managed to miss you despite this precaution, please send me a message.
