dVersePoets Pub – Stream of Consciousness Prompt –
hosted by Victoria C Slotto
stream of consciousness is one of my favorite modes of creativity, and has slowly, over the years, been tempered by some well needed conscious prodding reviewing and revising
so victorias’ suggestion, within her prompt at dVersePoets, is pretty valid, if you have the time and inclination, ie, you might get going and wanna bust through while the busting’s good 😉
• Review your writing for any connection you can discover between words and phrases and see where your poem will take you.
• Put your work aside for a while before returning to it.
i find, if you do this form of writing enough, you get where you like incorporating and doing some of these ideas
and she has more tips, and examples, and links to the likes of james joyce and virginia woolf, among others
it’s an interesting read of a prompt, highly recommend if you’re curious 😉
a year ago i woke in texas to this same heat this
afternoon that had burned off a lingering morning northern
chill and find the two thousand miles neighbors each and every
inch along the way should i worry i wondered then forgot should i
fret or celebrate or buy an extra beer here or simply feel myself the
same in place to place adjust the windows with the shades as
the arc of sun boils the west and leaves the rest tonight
in tepid waiting for the cool of dawn i am neighbors
to myself in different lands offering strangers
notice of the dew point’s choke point on
our skin our eyes our way of feeling
something’s “off” something’s
not quite right tonight but
i am neighbors with
myself now and i
i know like the folk here
this winter past was faux cold and i know the
summer-spring that stings is faux heat
unless you get hot or cold
then the hotty toddy tea and ice cold beer
beer beer cold beer here
might make us neighbors one more season’s passing

This carried me along as stream of consciousness should – in my humble opinion! – so the cold beer at the end was most acceptable!
i appreciate that david 😉 thanks!
I’d certainly share a cold beer with you – love your words!
😉 it’s that time of year for the cold drinks 😉 thanks so much for your kind words!
Love the shape of your words, and the words themselves are as refreshing as that cold one you offered…! You would be an interesting and good neighbor!
that is very thoughtful & gracious of you shanyns, thank you so much 😉
best to be good neighbors with yourself – so enjoy the beer! Good flow to this.
thanks chris 😉 yes i agree, might as well be friends with myself, even if it’s taken most my life, off and on that is 😉
This has a superb flow
thanks so much marousia, i very much appreciate your feeling that, i don’t always pull it off 😉
smiles…i’m up for a cold beer anytime when the weather is nice..good and bad being neighbors with yourself…so i hope you treat yourself well…but sounds like you do…smiles
that’s a really good point claudia! lol! i “better” be good to myself 😉
Great shaping of you poem, Filipe–a good example of how you can keep the randomness alive while working within the structure of revision. As for the beer, since you’re at the pub and I’m bartending, I offer you a complimentary pitcher. :0)
ahhh, a frosty one i see 😉 i’ll pass it around the others and we’ll all have a few sips, thank you victoria
haha…i would crack a cold one with you if i was close enough…being neighbors with yourself…smiles…glad you like them you know…never can you always pick them…lol…
that would be nice, maybe some day we’ll pass by close enough 😉
yea, i got all convoluted with the consciousness stream trying to lay out my thoughts and realized i was neighbors with myself from two locations, lol! yea, crazy 😉
smiles…maybe we will get that chance…have a great weekend man
