Today’s poetry prompt is writing from the heart
Form shape poetry or Lysentia Rhyme
Listen to the living heart
My heart, though essential to my body,
is but a pump, a circulator
It is my voice, resonating through my being,
that is my living heart, the heart of me
My heart, though beating to the world’s rhythms,
is of this place, the lapping of these waters
It is the scream of the eagle overhead
and the roar of the hummingbird’s wings
Each morning, though the night was restless,
is an adventure, a search for nature’s news
that resonates with my voice and grows
with my living heart until I have to share.
Today’s visual prompt is this pulp cover of Rat in the Skull
micro-story At night, as the scientists slept, they worked in secret, building and testing their exo-suit.

The day the new researcher joined the lab, no one could find subject 243.
