Escaping The Digital World | Daily Poetry

Prompt: Today, we’d like to challenge you to write a surreal prose poem.

Aren’t you exhausted of the digital world, where we’re constantly digging into our tablets, always ending up furled? I once tried to escape this cycle of disgust, of my eyes cemented to a void, literally drying into dust. The couch pulled me deeper in, as I settled by the window – the sound of kids running, mumbling gibberish lingo. Looking out, I felt a strange comfort across my face with that fresh whiff of breeze, wandering at its subtle pace. Was I feeling okay, I couldn’t comprehend if I was new to this space. My lungs felt lighter, is this how it feels to chase… the outdoors and earthy scent for a little while longer? These tiny delicacies of life were making me feel stronger, almost make me want to pull my knees up to my chest – this momentary feeling of bliss, is this what people call “rest?” Again, I wouldn’t know for sure, I’m ardently unaware. Maybe if I let go of my devices a little, this could be a joy I’ll be more spirited to share.

Get ready to dive into the world of poetry with my upcoming book, “Echoes of Existence”, hitting shelves in May 2024. It’s filled with heartfelt poems inspired by real-life experiences and emotions that we all can relate to (including poems on work-life balance, woohoo).

As we get closer to the big reveal, stay tuned for sneak peeks, behind-the-scenes stories, and updates about bringing this book to life. So, mark your calendars and spread the word!

Until next time,

Ri @ Readably Yours
