Writing Challenge

1, 1, 8 , 2, 0, 1 5 => 1, 2, 1, 15, 8, 0


What’s the date today? Write it down, remove all dashes and slashes, and write a post that mentions that number.

One island, two people.

A lighthouse and fifteen steps to the top.

8 pointed petals of a rose crucified on the marble floor.

Reflections on the water, reverberations through the air.

The sound is booming strong, hitting low and tremble

Tremble descending into the nevermore.

Did you guess it is night? Do you know how you taste

Now, when endless needles of ice pointing, pricking and piercing

The skin? Do you see them? Crystals of salt in droplets of Ocean on goosebumps, in wrinkles, clung tight to a hair?

I saw them. I felt them, the cold and the saline and frozen so close

Just until

There were none

  1. What a great interpretation of the daily post! You are very talented and I’m glad to have come across your post, even through there are “none” left at the end of the poem.
