Shifts and Turns

Faith and Religion is
a very fine line
The Master who said "Love your neighbors"
Who gave His Blood to the faithful
And Rose from the Dead
Changing them with the Spirit
His Path twisted by
"What the Romans said"
Losing its Heart
Trapped in Fear
Love now being lost
In "What the Pastor
And your Elders said".
Not the root of His Choices
But Human Misinterpretation
Now Others
Are slowly reclaiming
The Truth and Trust
The Original Path
The cycle circles back
To Love

Camouflaged Meetings of Protest

These are the years we don't speak of.
Except in quiet discontentment
"I wish it were just a dream"
People divided within the Matrix
With a puppetmaster running the show
His puppet, a child pretending to be Godzilla,
tearing down all we were
All that we'd built,
all the progress we'd made

Small crowds gather
Awoken within the Matrix
Faithfully stepping forward
To Protect and Serve
That Progress
Keeping Hope Alive
Away from them
Protecting it for the future
Trying to avoid
The World War
Threatening to Reboot the Matrix
Making us Small and Insignificant
Again




This was written for [livejournal.com profile] therealljidol Season 10, Week 4: Sudden Death Match: Open Topic. I decided to generate myself a postage stamp bingo card for my personal prompt and wrote something inspired by it.

Not What You Do but How Do You Want to Feel

Haven't yet figured out this year's goals
But I think I've figured out the feelings
Fierce yet flexible, flowing, creative, clear
Stretching, soaring but comfortable
Knowing these are
better intuitive guideposts
they're what makes the year feel good
And after the last year
where dreams suddenly came true
almost out of nowhere
combined with loss and fear
at the time of transitions
I know that what I need
is to set the foundations first
the things that will make
this cycle smooth and decisive
So I can see which way to turn
To be where I want to go

Sweet merciful cupcakes, this is not going as planned!

2016 has been one hell of a year. If you're into woo-y stuff, 2016 is considered a 9 universal year. 9 years are basically about the transformational power of endings -- "one cannot heal the past, if they don't eventually let go of it".

It's been a year of tough global and local shifts and realizations and in some cases, deep loss. The struggle is real, but it's also a birth, a choice. For me it's been a really interesting transition and something of a practice for my own personal 9 year in this coming April.


I pulled out the default trio of decks I use for one of my Welcome to Night Vale inspired tarot spreads this morning, asking what I needed to know and the reading came up as follows:
 photo 15137605_10207193939678742_3690968965317218323_o.jpg

[image description: A tarot spread of what should be a 9-card block. The top row is of cards from Danielle LaPorte's Truthbombs Volume 1 Deck is overlying thoughts which tend to represent edgy truths to consider, the middle row of cards is from Sonia Choquette's Trust Your Vibes oracle card deck which represents actions that can be taken, and the bottom row of cards is from my Yu--Gi-Oh! TCG playing card oracle deck, which represents thoughts feelings and actions underneath the actions and truths to consider.
Middle Column - Center cards: Stay in your own skin & Let Go, bottom middle card: Reverse Trap, Top Middle: Recalibrate what you're willing to compromise on & Absolutely everything is progress (Reversed)
Left Column - Center Cards: Mentors and Role Models & Call on your Joy Guides, Bottom left card: Soul Exchange, Top left card: Your life purpose is what you say it is (Reversed)
Right Column - Center Card: Talk Shop, Bottom Right: Dark Assailant (Reversed), Top Right: We know each other]

I interpreted the reading this way:

Focus/main action: Stay in your own skin & let go. Underlying thoughts to main action: beware the reverse trap -- take care that for the time being there will be opposition. Overthoughts on the main action: recalibrate what you're willing to compromise on; maybe consider that not absolutely everything is progress.

Things to do to help you perform main action: call on your mentors, role models and joy guides. Underlying thoughts to this action: remember that there is always an energy exchange. Overthoughts on this action: consider if your life purpose might not be what you say it is.

Actions to consider performing after you get in your skin and let go of what no longer serves: talk shop. Underlying thoughts: Consider serving for Justice and what is right. Overthoughts: Remember that those who remain know each other.


With the upcoming season and a new year soon enough, there's a lot of things to think about and consider.

And I can't help but reflect on how hard it is to make the choice to do these things. It's hard to be the person in the room who stands up even when things are terrifying. To be the writer who will go where other writers fear to tread. To be the change I want to step into.

Hi everyone, we’re back again. This year deciding to only write collectively, though we aren’t sure what our gimmick this round will be. :)

We’ve done RLJI in various forms since Season 5 - Ruby (a headmate) did Season 5 via [livejournal.com profile] crowblood_heart (entries), we collectively did Seasons 6-8 we did collectively on [livejournal.com profile] dreamwriteremmy and Exhibit B as our Agent DreamWriter character on [personal profile] dreamwriteremmy (entries), and we did season 9 collectively here on [livejournal.com profile] dreamwriters (entries) and Giselle (a headmate) also participated in Season 9 via [livejournal.com profile] gisellewakfld (entries).


We’re an over 100 member plural system and usually we go by Dreamers United which is our actual system name, but when we’re writing professionally, it’s usually The DreamWriters now or our legal name which is Emma (we use Emmy as a nickname). Our preferred pronouns are they conjugated as plural, so they are, etc. (We’ll accept female and genderneutral pronouns as well, or you could just ask since who’s fronting tends to also determine pronouns.)

We write a little bit of everything: personal narrative, fiction, poetry, and fanfiction.

We are 28 years old and a reiki practitioner and lifelong learner and a cat caretaker volunteer at our local animal shelter. Currently on top of participating with Idol, we are also doing a variety of projects for National Novel Writing Month, including a currently open Irregular Prompt Call. If you want to help us write stories this month, please go over to the prompt call open post on Dreamwidth (or here on LJ) for stories about: minority characters, nonviolent resistance, problems that can’t be solved with hitting and/or happy prompts!

[livejournal.com profile] therealljidol is in session again for Season 10 and we Idol veterans are tossing our hat into the ring collectively again!

(Though I'm not sure what exactly we're going to do stylewise this round.)

If you want to sign up, sign ups are still open here; just remember to include if you're a newbie or a veteran.

It's NaNo, I'm behind schedule. I'm disappointed in the election results. Fuck it I'm expanding my NaNo project again.

Notes: This is for NaPoWriMo/Poem-A-Day Day 5. The prompt was to be inspired by the name of a plant/flower. So Honeybees subsystem wrote this acrostic about themselves with the flower name (Evening Sun Sunflower) instead of about the flower.

Notes: This is for NaPoWriMo/Poem-A-Day Day 3. This is another fork off the NaPoWriMo prompt "Write a poem that's a fan letter to a celebrity". This is addressed to creators and while it doesn't name names, it is addressed to: some famous creator-celebrities, some fandom and non-fandom Big Name Fans, and some other online and offline minor creator-celebrities (basically the many AWESOME creator-friends we have). Cecil wrote this one.

Notes: This is for NaPoWriMo/Poem-A-Day Day 2. It kind of forks off the NaPoWriMo prompt, which was "a poem that takes the form of a family portrait". This was written in collaboration by the system kids, but primarily takes input from Janice, Aeslyn and Maya.
