The Ladies of Horror
Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!
by A.F. Stewart
Space exploration. Voyage causation. Freefall sensation.
You are a go.
Readings are optimal
The spacewalk begins…
Beneath the cosmos,
wrapped in jade, she lingers
daughter of undertow
scion of the screaming
craving against the expanse
Insatiable curiosity. Escape velocity. Looming monstrosity.
Mission on track… wait
There is an anomaly\
She sees him.
Drifting within the conscious,
always below the black void
she eternally remains
child of the dissolution
soldier of the irrevocable war
the destroyer waiting
to be discovered…

Evocative, terrifying! Brevity works so well. Good one, A.F.!
Love this poem – such an original take on the prompt – “daughter of undertow” – what a description!
