It is a grand wrap for 2021, with 6 of my poems part of this beautiful anthology of poetry and flash fiction – FromOneLine (Vol.2).
Writing in a few words and within limited characters is a great mental challenge. When you have to create using only the provided first-line prompt, it becomes all the more interesting for the writer.
This anthology brings together myriad perspectives and creativity to these first-line prompts. A perfect Christmas gift with a colorful cover and an accompanying bookmark, with talent overflowing through its pages. The second FromOneLine Anthology has been published as an A5 paperback book. It features 41 prompt lines, 113 authors and 457 poems, and flash fiction.
Music, herself Plays mystical tunes The cosmos sways To sounds unknown Our Earth moves On strings so taut Each motion a melody Each step a waltz In this rhythm Only a willing soul Hears the resonance Of silence within When in discord
Find me the peace Of pure innocence Free me from shackles Let me sense miracles Unleash the inner child Conjour faces in a cloud Marvel at a shimmery bug Whisper to a tiny bird Play with a grass blade Count stars in night’s parade Let my soul revel in nature; A haven for every creature!
