Another wonderful poem response to the prompt. This one from Amanda. I hope you enjoy.
I’m still discovering the fun surprises blogging has to offer, including this speculative fiction style writing prompt posted by D. Wallace Peach.
Here’s my response to the photo prompt above:
You can’t risk it! They said,
Anything could happen out there
Exposed in that dangerous blue light
The illumined darkness
Stay here, safe in Shadow!
But she wasn’t the sort
To use fear as her talisman
To mistake shelter for freedom
She was ready for more
Thus crouched in the hidden doorway
She cautiously looked both ways
Watched as the moon eclipsed the sun
Then stretched herself to fullness
As her small body expanded
She strode, near danced
Into the silvery center
That infinite space of the unknown
And found herself reflected there
