Day 23 - W (A to Z Challenge) and Day 27 - She Moved, Slightly-- (Napowrimo)

Day 23 AtoZ Challenge

Art and affirmative alliteration for Day 23. All my art works of AtoZ challenge have been done in acrylic inks and coffee wash.
The intention is to reach out to young girls in specific and everyone in general who need to hear some positive and empowering affirmations each day. Just a humble alliterative effort. I wish we could all inspire each other everyday, place a helping hand, a shoulder to rest for a while, embrace to overcome the each other's pain, ease with laughter and a extend a bit of company to one another. In short, empower one another.


Day 27 Napowrimo

Looking into the mirror

She erased the filigree memory, wiping it off

Like wiping the vapourised glass

She stood transfixed, staring

At her own reflection

Napowrimo prompt:

In today’s (optional) prompt, I’d like to challenge you to write a poem inspired by an entry from the Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows. The entries are very vivid – maybe too vivid! But perhaps one of the sorrows will strike a chord with you, or even get you thinking about defining an in-between, minor, haunting feeling that you have, and that does not yet have a name.

I chose Opia from the Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows. 

n. the ambiguous intensity of looking someone in the eye, which can feel simultaneously invasive and vulnerable—their pupils glittering, bottomless and opaque—as if you were peering through a hole in the door of a house, able to tell that there’s someone standing there, but unable to tell if you’re looking in or looking out.

Do let me know your views on my poem. What do you gather from my art that you see here? Would love to hear from you.

It is said that our human big brains grew under the stimulus of language and that 80% is devoted to working out what other people are about to do so it is no wonder that looking into another's eyes can be so fraught and ambiguous. I loved your poem.
