THE DAILY READ

NEW AT YWP

I remember
When the constellations twinkled
Hidden lines drawn between the brightest and the lightest
Like a tunnel, whispering unspoken truths
Joy hidden between flickering candles of the night

Each yearning and suffering
Yet knowingly in harmony

When the earth turns its back on the sun
To gaze at bright white lanterns amidst darkness
We are offered a sense of comfort in the constellations
If we have the strength to summon it

Infinite facets of the cosmos
How different are they after all?

Ceasing to keep secrets from one another

Meanwhile we bury our honesties and hide
To claim some foreign sense of belonging
Or is it because we only keep them from ourselves?

WRITING CHALLENGES
  • Uvalde: Another horrific mass shooting at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas yesterday. We're "sick and tired of it," President Biden says. "We have to act." So, act, America! Gun control is possible. Write to Congress! Speak out!
  • From the Weekly Challenges: Rock Art: Rocks are beautiful works of art. Make a rock statue, a cairn, a wall, anything. Take photos of them and share with us at YWP.
