dearest poets and storytellers. I hope you are well, and with your pen (and muse) at the ready. Today’s prompt was
inspired by the following exchange, which I overheard while waiting at my
person said to another, “Do you ever feel like you’re being hunted, like there’re
eyes stuck to your back, and someone’s about to grab you?”
other individual shook their head, and said, “I’ve never felt that. I’m always the
one doing the hunting.” Then, while pretending to grab for the other person’s throat,
they yelled, “Boo!” and laughed.
After a few seconds, they were both laughing. The eyes of the one who booed were shiny with mirth. But the other one looked troubled, and the look stayed with me.
with that thought in mind, I invite you to write poetry or prose from the point
of view of a character or speaker who is hunting, being hunted, or both.
Pieces which have been significantly rewritten are welcomed. This prompt will stay open
for a week. One link per participant. If you go for prose, the word count
should be 369 words or fewer. Let us write, share, and comment!
