October 16: Turn the World Inside Out #OctPoWriMo #Writober and #NanoPrep

Today’s theme made me think of tearing myself open and letting my insides pour out, but then I thought about radiating and rippling from a core or center which led me to creating these radiating inkblots.

Roshni’s Diamante “A Change of Perspective”

Poetry prompt Today’s OctPoWriMo prompt is Turn the World Inside Out

Forms The Pictorial or Mirrored Refrain

Holding the Vital Tenders

Skin, our largest organ
is but vibrating cells in space
an agreed upon frenetic shell
holding the vital tenders in place

Epidermis and dermis layered
easily sliced, pierced, bruised; it swells
holding the vital tenders in place
an agreed upon frenetic shell

The tangerine pulp of pain radiates
muscles clench to vermilion ache
an agreed upon frenetic shell
holding the vital tenders in place

A world inside out like belongings
in dumpsters after an act of God brings hell
holding the vital tenders in place
an agreed upon frenetic shell

Writober

For today’s visual prompt, I chose this image

micro-story : After her long, dangerous pilgrimage, she knelt before the tortured giant awaiting its healing salve. She hoped it was still drooling angrily from its last piercing. The other-dimensional being hung in the cathedral as a reminder of human arrogance. Once it leapt through the portal, it devoured all in its path. Once it was finally captured, it could not be killed.

NaNo Prep

I got a lot out of the Change Perspective exercise for OctPoWriMo yesterday. I did a mind-map with three things from my list and it really got me thinking differently. Today, I’ll try this exercise as my different characters and see what comes up.
