You can find these prompts by searching for “#vss365 #prompt” each day, and then you respond to the facilitator’s email that contains the daily prompt. Poetry and prose are acceptable.

#Vss365 #prompt #face

I love Rodney Yee.

He introduced

My #face to my knee.

#Vss365 #prompt #face

If you knew,

When you were young,

What life would bring you,

Could you face it

And go on?

Could you? Would you? Why?

#vss365 #prompt #sea

My thoughts are as granular as the sand

As if the #sea had tumbled, abraded, and molded each one

For thousands of years

Into minimalist specs – separate –

But creating a whole greater than the sum of its parts.


August 19, 2021. Today’s writer’s prompt reminded me of a cuckoo thing my father did. Check it out! It’s short and sweet – in a payback sort of way. It’s followed by a #PenYourTen word challenge, and the photo is of the Seed of Life. Enjoy!
Rocky Mountains, Colorado
My Father too lazy to drive to the bridge
Backed up; gunned it
As if it were just a #furrow in the landscape,
As if the car could do a flyover.
Crawled out of the ditch, bloodied and chastened
Lived to tell the story.

Your thoughts #seed your actions. Water the good ones well.

For this one, you’ll see my reply attached to what the facilitator of the #vss365 #prompt challenge gave us for the prompt #song. People come up with all kinds of interpretations and points of view, which makes for some fascinating reading.

#vss365 #prompt #time

3,000 miles of separation made no difference.

It was merely space where there is no #time.

When you were sad or afraid, I was sad or afraid.

When you were surprised, happy, and free, I was surprised, happy, and free.

ESP is the conjugation of two Souls wed in infinity.

#vss365 #prompt #search

I found the man.

I found the career.

I found money.

It was the wrong #search.

#vss365 #prompt #surge #tanka

Raw anguish #surges

As I contemplate my life

Without your presence.

Forgotten are many tools

Metaphysics I have taught.


#vss365 #prompt #surge

Cicadas #surge

Every 17 years

Engorging the atmosphere

With deafening sound

Frenetically flying into faces

Of gardeners and tourists alike.
