The Daily Prompt #5

This week we decided to give you a challenge.  I’m really curious to see what you guys fish out of those chemicals splashing around in your brain we call creativity.

And bloggers, we’ll keep reminding you on this.  You can post your responses in the comment section below, but don’t just promote your writing.  Check out others posts, and give them feedback.  This is a community project.

Linking to this project from the post is also appreciated.

Oi ! I’m Jeremiah Walton. For the past ~3 years I’ve been bopping around the U.S. between hitchhiking + rubber tramping, running traveling bookstore Books & Shovels + indie publisher Nostrovia! Press. My focus is in-person distribution at open mics + features + busking. Word of mouth is a fulfilling & feels to be a more intimate promotional process. I’ve featured at the NYC Poetry Festival + San Francisco Lit Crawl + Snoetry Cleveland + Beast Crawl Oakland + This Lil Lit Fest + street corners across the country. There’s a handful of my books floating around the country, but most recently is “From Here Til Utopia” (Ghost City Press). Raccoons + coyotes are my companions. Hope you dig the poems, much love, thank you❤

  1. I will mull over this and mix it in with the chemicals in my brain this week. If I just had some mulling spices, though. I’m intrigued.

    • And I’m intrigued to seeing what you come up with. This can definitively be taken down many different roads. I hope you produce some of the mulling spices, and dip your writing in them, mixing in some lead and creativity, stirring using a dead tree or keyboard.

  2. Dog-eared

    Hello, thanks for stopping in today.
    I’m just wandering about, killing time.

    You’re welcome to stay as long as you like.
    I stumbled into this place quite by accident.

    Well, you never know what you might discover.
    True, diamonds in the rough are rumored to exist.

    Interests are said to spark, even among the ordinary.
    And when I see the ordinary sparkle, its brilliance shines.

    Are you looking for something in particular, a slight inkling?
    No, not really, but I think I’ll recognize it if I do happen upon it.

    As is the usual case, especially in this space, filled with all sorts.
    Ah, I noticed it almost straight away, this trail of connected kinds.

    Did I mention there’s more inside, the types that take a little turn?
    Do you mind if I dig in a little deeper, just to see what comes of it?

    Not in the least, and if you have the time, the backroom is bursting.
    Backroom? It looks to be a little dark in there, but, ah, here’s a light.

    It’s closing time. You’ll have to come back tomorrow if you’d like to…
    Closing time? Must you close up so soon? I haven’t quite started yet.
