Day Ten


9050352I went out of the prompt world again today and in my own direction. This poster was my starting point.

Anyone can slay a dragon, she told me,
but try waking up every morning and loving the world all over again. That’s what takes a real hero.

Many of us are rebuilding after life’s disasters, working on being those real heroes – I’d argue that’s heroic, too, the trying. The trying is what makes us all so damn amazing. It’s not just humans, either… It’s, well, LIFE!



We make plans

We make plans
Then dragons come
Swift, sudden, savage
Broiling, bubbling, boiling
Burn bust rip tear decimate
Swallow scorch conflagrate
Then fly soar evaporate
Abandoning their spree

And we, debris
On scorch-skinned knees
Obscured by ashes bones and trees
Survey damage count the living
Gather pray display thanksgiving
Grace praise holding hands
A new beginning
We make plans
