National Poetry Month: Octopoem

This was from a prompt given on Legendfire Writing Forum. Prompt was to write an Octopoem. Directions here.  The fractal I created in Chaotica rather than my usual Apophysis 7.x program.

Created by A Zingler in Chaotica

Embers

Scorching blue embers
Straddles fall leaves
Inside a small, thirsty forest
Then a screeching sand-storm
Sears and ignites the forest’s undergarments
It cavorts and careens like a skater on ice
burns through the fall undergrowth
the scorching blue embers.

By Aibird

Open the door, step inside. Here you find a forest, teeming with animals and birds, which sweeps up the sides of snow-capped mountains. Here in the small pocket of beauty, one finds the essence of my soul. A writer at heart, I delve deep into the finer details of humanity's spirit, and seek to share with others what gems I uncover. I find life exciting and full of interesting surprises, and despite the great pain that often confronts me, I persevere with the joy in my heart still bubbling, and the light of my soul still aflame. There is a time and a place to introspect one's self, but often enough it is best to not look back in regret, but leap forward in the present toward the achievement of one's deepest dreams. I am a wanderer. An explorer. One place cannot contain me for long, but to my friends and family, I remain loyal, for love is not bound by time nor place. Once cultivated and nourished continuously, it binds people together on a journey through the unknown reaches of life.

  1. Keep writing. I’m reading your poems. This one made me think of the fires in Florida, maybe the the blue embers reminds me as I think of blue when I think of Florida. Blessi
