Day 2 Prompt – The Void

As writers, and especially poetry writers, I believe we dive into the void on a regular basis to find the words, to gain perspective, to hibernate and more. How have you used the void? What does, “the void” mean to you?

They said the void was some place dark, 

A place to fear, our thoughts to erase. 

Dove into the whirlpool, left my mark. 

Change begins, fearless the void face.

——-

Told me, the void was nothingness, 

I found vision, a sign of grace. 

Everything made sense, was goodness, 

Change begins, fearless the void face.

——–

Pathways curved, I yet had to fight, 

Marathon as life, mine a race. 

Engaged in battle, with small might. 

Change begins, fearless the void face.

——-

I experienced some awful times,

Then settled back, whirlpool escaped. 

Came out stronger, knowing my prize.

Change begins, fearless the void face.

——–

Peace and clarity, I gained true. 

Mind relaxed, no longer head case.

Spirit guided me, wings of lace. 

Change begins, fearless the void face.

  1. “Peace and clarity” from the void. That’s a promising, challenging way to express the experience. Many would not see virtue in a void. You teach us well, Amanda.

    The prompt direction. Is that part of the series for October?

    I like the image of the maelstrom, too.

  2. And she went through the void, and other than nothingness, she gained clarity and came out stronger realising it wasn’t something to fear. Beautiful Mandi. I was busy this week and completely forgot about OctPowrimo, your post just reminded me of it. Will try to do it

  3. Love how the rough and tough journey has been worthwhile my dear Mandi. One hopeful piece. ❤

    Love this stanza:
    I experienced some awful times,

    Then settled back, whirlpool escaped.

    Came out stronger, knowing my prize.

    Change begins, fearless the void face.
