Somethin' to be posted in Dark 3, obviously.

I was talking to Jessica last night, and she came up with the phrase "Blood and rainbows."

So, ah'd like to see poems using that phrase or that idealogy somewhere.

HOWEVER -- no violent poems. No poems about murder, or self-harm, or suicide, or anything like that.

Blood is not just violent, y'know.

It's what pumps through our bodies. It's what we feel pressing inside us when we're feelin' heightened emotions.

And by supplyin' an exchange of oxygen to our lungs, heart and brain, it's what keeps us alive.

So that's the challenge. To write a poem incorporating blood and rainbows that is not violent or loathing.

Good luck.   I'll post too, when I have a free moment.

Mike

Interesting Phrase...that smacked me right over the head with creativity! Mine is posted in Dark Poetry #3, thanks for the Challenge ~Rayne
