Been depressed, fighting thoughts of suicide lately, thinking about all the trees I used to climb, how they're changing mostly for the worst. These cycles come and go for me- on Unbearable Depression Mode in this poem. But at least I have to stay alive to write a poem about dying. Even when they're horrific and sad, the words keep me here every single day. I can never stop for too long.
This was inspired by one of @murryben's old profile pics, (the one with the girl who had the flowers and stems covering her chest lol) reimagined in a more grotesque way for Halloween. Sorry I got it out late, concussion and whiplash symptoms had me feeling not so great all month But I managed to get this one written up now, and even though spooky season is over, peoples' love of horror lasts all year! I hope you all hold yourselves tight and enjoy! #pod#poem#stories#trees#nature#bones#life#death@miraquill@writersnetwork@writersbay
A Fata Morgana is a type of mirage, one that is normally associated with the open ocean but can also be seen at times on land. It takes its name from Arthurian legend, named for the sorceress Morgan le Fay, who was said to use these images with her witchcraft to lure unwitting sailors into her traps. This type of mirage is responsible for all kinds of unusual sightings, from mountains in the middle of the ocean to ships that appear to by flying, and it may even be the source of the legend of the Flying Dutchman. Usually, the image is based on a real object, such as a far-off ship, just distorted to appear surreal. People report seeing floating ships, ships that appear to be flying upside down, or even landmasses that aren’t really there. Interestingly, the farther away from a Fata Morgana you are, the taller the mirage appears to be. #pod#poem#thoughts#monsters#life#death#humans#mirage@miraquill@writersnetwork@writersbay
Since last month on 16th we announced MIRAGE POETRY CONTEST, in memories of @john_solomon & @kehta_hai_joker, its been an overwhelming journey full of learning and reminiscence. We want to thank you all the beautiful poets who wrote for this and helped us honor and remember Jack and Joker. We also want to thank Good Lord The Almighty who blessed us, that we had the beautiful presence of those two holy souls in our lives, and also for guiding us, their close friends, to organise Mirage in their remembrance.
With all of your surreal haikus, we felt Jack and Joker around. Thank you all once again for the kind support ❤
We invite you all for the "Jack and Joker Memorial Event" on 19th of December, on Clubhouse App. (We will have more details on this event very soon).
And with all your blessings the contest will resume again on 16th November next year.
Finally, a very special thank you to @captain_blant, who was the main creative contributor as well as the driving force behind this beautiful commemorative event. You are quite an inspiration Satyam, and we appreciate your considerable efforts!
I'd like to take a moment to wish a very happy birthday to a member who is not only an exceptional and inspiring writer, but also a very generous, supportive, and genuine reader. Her literary contributions and dedication to her fellow writers are incomparable, and on this Thanksgiving holiday, I count her among my reasons for being grateful. A very happy birthday to you Sanam. I'm blessed to know you. Enjoy your special day. Much love and many blessings to you always. ❤
