This small nation
In response to my daily prompt Declaration
#DailyPrompt, #amwriting, #postaday
Lines upon lines
Red and gold
The wild blue bold
A stamps of order
Here is born
Silk and steel
Rules the land
Gifts and death
In this hand
Left on the land
Words both spoken
And written in sand
Strength and order
The order of the day
The eagles left
Their order will stay

Slip away for a few hours, into other worlds – away from all the troubles of this one.
Perhaps into the future – a near future – dark and disturbing and yet – so close. There follow the fates of four people worn down and broken – or angry with the system. Who break out of it and try to break it. Who question why they did and falter in their resolve only to be thrown back into the fray to discover the truth within themselves. A tale that questions rebellion and its motivations while railing at the oppression around us. Try it.
Or if not the future – the other worlds – supernatural ones – that impinge onto ours from – where? Some other dimension? The afterlife? Our own minds?
Where ever they come from – try these Thirteen Tales of the Ghostly variety.
Or forget them all and take a moment each day – to read a little poetry and think. Three hundred and sixty-five poems in all shapes and sizes sprung from dreams and emotion. Published day after day for a year. There are haiku, sonnets, katauta, lanturnes and many other forms – including free form. The moods are as varied as the forms and often reflect my mood on the day. There is sadness and grief, joy and love.
These Daily Prompts are my attempt to fill the hole left by the now retired Daily Post.
