Writing Prompt Challenge Submission: Shattered Horizons/Aurora Phoenix

Writing Prompt: “The horizon breaks to pieces and the mainline is the twilight”

The submissions for my writing prompt challenge were really innovative and interpreted the prompt in very different and very cool ways.  My guest judges and I plan on announcing a winner within the next ten days but in the meantime, please enjoy these interpretations.  I have included the links to their blogs below so you can enjoy more of their fabulous writing.


In a boundary-less universe

the quest for ecstasy

extinguishes

sanity and reality

 

Titanic voyage cruises

toward ephemeral bliss

hide and seeking verisimilitude

beyond shifting horizon

 

Siren-call lures

in elusive promise

enchantment everlasting

hiding fatal undertow

 

The seeking is a tunnel

express and lightless

mainlining speed and frenzy

delirium inside-outed

 

Ticket to adventure

non-stop one-way trip

derails just past oblivion

conductor bleary-eyed

 

Rocket launches heavenward

fueled on fleeting fantasy

euphoria scorches

in the afterburn

 

Shuttle is a boomerang

pleasure-seeking missile

imploding on contact

breaks self to pieces

 

Pursuit a dead-heat

pell-mell sprint

for the rapture

ruptures blistered soles

 

Marathon a misbegotten

death-march compelled

by ruthless tyrant

cleverly disguised

 

Carefree road trip

jaunty and spontaneous

piled-in chaotic

journey toward joy

 

Lost and trail weary

map misplaced or misprinted

all tanks empty

seven miles past Styx

 

The search is a limitless

spirit chase, wasted

Polaroids of mist

faint-moaning in the gloaming

 

Floating in suspended animation

drifting between Seraphim

nirvana bound,

cruelly grounded by Lucifer

 

Evanescent odyssey

defying temporal bonds

transcending constraints

peaks in rhapsody

 

DeLorean travel

mythical sojourn

Mephistopholes driven

catastrophically crashes and burns

 

Eternity beckons in mockery

humanity falls spellbound

the horizon breaks to pieces

and the mainline is the twilight

  1. Aurora, love all the images of journey and travel and the cultural allusions – something that includes Back to the Future to Mephistopheles and thus The Police has to be inherently brilliant, right? The sounds and images are fantastic.
