#OctPoWriMo Day 21: Playing with Firewater

Melting Skull by Maria L. Berg 2021

For Tourmaline .’s Halloween Challenge, “drink,” I bought yummy, colorful juices and repurposed my candy mold as an ice tray. The drink photos did not go well. I made a terrible mess and I’m going to have to deal with a drunk alligator and zombie later, but I like how the candy pumpkin shots turned out. Making shots for a zombie, what was I thinking?

OctPoWriMo

Today’s prompt is the bridge between goals and accomplishment. The 2018 prompt was “How Will I Know?” It recommended using poetry magnets. I haven’t played with mind in a while. Should be fun.

The dVerse Poet’s Pub prompt is the poetry form compound word verse.

At the Water’s Edge

Aspiring to some acceptance
Breaking down my mind’s resisting
waterway

How will I know to take the leap?
I imagine kisses’ sweet
freshwater

After candy pumpkin shots and
warm-cheeked, heady, loose-lips demand
firewater

How will I know to go or stay?
After the bridge washes away
watershed

Is there a reward for rushing,
or a leftover brain-crushing
waterfall?
