Expanding Wee Bits of Dark Fiction and Poetry, 6

Two weeks have gone by since “Weirdest” leapt in defense of her home. I’ve been a tad busy with family birthdays, medical appointments, delighting in the colors of autumn…

But I’m here now, right? And I’ve listed five of the word Bits I’ve shared on Instagram or Facebook this last handful of days. Do leave a comment letting me know which Bit you would like to see grow into a story or a full-length poem. I shall develop the one with the most votes. Please make your choice before Monday, November 23rd at 1:13pm EST.

1) Which bit do you wish me to develop?
2) Would you like your choice to be flash fiction or longer poetry?
3) *optional* Why?

Here is the short list:

“Balance”
Night cannot be avoided;
to preserve vision,
in light,
become the darkness.
– blacked out from the US Marine Corps Field Training Manual

“Inert Brain”
ash and air
in an inert brain—
this is death
– blacked out from Ageless Body, Timeless Mind

“Whispers”
crepuscular fall
a forest whispers of death—
in the hearts of poets.
– created from my Edgar Allan Poe magnetic poetry kit

“Be”
Un-earth your senses;
imagine
and be.
– blacked out from Ageless Body, Timeless Mind

“Miseries”
Prejudice is the breath of human miseries.
– blacked out from Ageless Body, Timeless Mind

  1. Whisper is my choice
    The reason I chose this wee bit is because we just had a major death in our family that has effected us all and the words of “Whisper” speak to me deeply.

    I would love to see this become more… Longer Peotry

  2. I like “Be” or “Whispers”. I like Whispers, because I just finished a painting called Whispers! LOL! I love Be because that is something we should all do 😉 Ummm, I can’t pick between your longer poem or flash fiction. You pick 🙂 I trust you! Love you!

  3. Whispers as a long poem, saw the dark and filtered light both hitting a dead fawn being consumed by bugs… Juxtaposition of opposites(?) Not sure why… I really thing all are quite magic though xox
