Sunday Best: Ocean Healing

How wonderfully surprising! My poem, “Perhaps to dream at the ocean” (terrible title and all) was a Top 3 prompt response at Free Verse Revolution last week. I am humbled.


Dear reader,

Despite October being notoriously dark and frightening, here on Free Verse Revolution the work I publish this month will be in response to the theme ‘Healing’.

Already, pieces have explored healing after heartbreak, hope and the difficult journey behind healing. To catch up:

Tuesday – Manisha Chummun

Wednesday – Fokkina McDonnell

Thursday – CJ Delous

Friday – Taylor Grace

Saturday – Kristiana Reed

Without realising, the prompt this week was very similar to last week’s but that didn’t stop you sending in some gorgeous responses. Here are the top three:

Perhaps to dream at the ocean – Phillip Knight Scott

Oceans of Lies – mistyroadsblog

Ocean Water – Nahlabels

I had so many responses this week so thank you all! Look out for next week’s prompt tomorrow.

Submissions are still open – I have seven more spaces!

Happy writing!

My name is Phillip. I live in North Carolina with my wife of 11 years and 3-year-old son, and at least for the next year, I’m on the right side of 40. (Both the interstate and existence, in years). I am a Tar Heel born and bred, and watch every Yankees game I can. My goal is to visit all 30 MLB stadiums in the next 10 years. I’ve been to 5 so far! Obviously I enjoy writing, but I also enjoy watching and reading sci-fi. I’m slowly attempting to finish my first novel, a “humorous” sci-fi romp which may be finished one day. I am a Doctor Who obsessive and choose Star Trek over Star Wars.
