IMPROMPTU #101: Earth Offering

Once for each thing. Just once; no more.
And we too, just once. And never again. 
But to have been this once, completely,
even if only once: to have been
at one with the earth, 
seems beyond undoing.

Rainer Maria Rilke


Some Earth Day love sent to me this morning by my mom via Adriene Mishler of Yoga with Adriene.  

This morning I heard a talk at the Vancouver Unitarian church by a Metis woman named Aline LaFlamme called "All My Relations." It was all about our relationships to each other and thereby the earth and nature, and how we are all relations, all connected in the circle of life. It was really beautiful. 

So in light of it being Earth Day, your prompt for today is to write an offering to the earth. <3

IMPROMPTU #99: Winter Tangerine Prompts for National Poetry Month

Winter Tangerine, a literary and arts magazine, has been posting daily poetry prompts on their Instagram account for National Poetry Month and I love them so much and thought I'd share one here. This is yesterday's prompt, Day 17:

"How many hungers do you have? Which one is the strongest? When are they most prevalent? What does your hunger look like, smell like?"

Check out their other prompts on Instagram, @wintertangerine_

Thanks to my friend Lenaya for sending them my way!
