Hunted – Writing Prompt #167 Collage Special Edition

Frozen here

I wait for all the

thoughts to leave,

return, and

stripped, set me afloat once more,

to guide me anew.

 

For now, I

am overwhelmed here,

engulfed by,

drowning in,

information overload.

I need rescuing

 

from my thoughts.

They sting me, wasp-like,

sharp-toothed and

ravenous

as wolves hunting for their prey.

I must go to ground.


 

Here is my entry into Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie’s latest collage writing prompt, where we are invited to be inspired by the collage pictured above. Why not take part?

I also decided to write my response in the style of a Shadorma, which is a particular poetry form consisting of a six line stanza with the 3/5/3/3/7/5 syllable pattern. You can write as many stanzas as you like, as long as they use the same syllable pattern.

Thank you to Mindlovemisery for introducing me to this form, which I knew nothing about until I saw this page on her blog.
