  • PCrew Pick: April 5

    Today's #PCrewPick is none other than datura by @luxeterna! I am absolutely in love with the flower theme of this whole thread, and this poem stood out to me specifically. I love how dangerous it feels, and delightfully morbid, while also being juxtaposed with its delicate formatting and floral title.

    My favorite lines would have to be these:
    skulls smeared across the asphalt
    quiet corpses still muttering admonitions
    streaked and smudged as vibrant as those refractments

    I love how they simultaneously conjure up both smushed flowers over pavement as well as the aftermath of some desolating event.

    For more of lux's poetry, check out the garden!

    PCrewPick April 2

    Two days into NaPo and we already have so many wonderful poems to choose from!
    But today we will focus on a wonderful poem from @phantasm s thread gathering ghosts

    This poem is called uncharted waters
    It immediately caught my attention for it's ambiguous but strong symbolism. It's like water, it takes many forms.
    My favorite line was

    something to the depths that you
    were never even anchored to.

    Those are some powerful lines. Poetic and thought provoking. Absolutely loved this poem! Stay tuned to phantasms thread, it's sure to be amazing!

    I hope everyone enjoyed #UnSoMo now as the official social fortnight or #SocialMonth2024 has started. Here is one more exciting thing for you all. This social month we planned to break a YWS record! All the past YWS records and record holders are mentioned in the The YWS Big Book of Records, but there are collective records as well like the last Great Tortoise Race of 2023 we broke the last Most Users to Complete Team Tortoise in one Month record with 9 members making through the month.

    This social month on YWS we are trying to break the record of Most people in a writing pad at once. It would be a pretty cool record to set. The last one would probably have been for YWS's 16th birthday with around 32 people. We are trying to surpass that goal and yeah that's crazy, chaotic, and of course AMAZING!

    We got this! Do not forget your fruit juices, everyone. Mr.Pineapple invites you to the GREAT PINEAPPLE PARTY hosted by me and @OrabellaAvenue!
    The date and timing is
    (There is a code applied that changes the time to the reader's time zone so it will be different for everyone according to where they live)

You must never give into despair. Allow yourself to slip down that road, and you surrender to your lowest instincts. In the darkest times, hope is something you give yourself. That is the meaning of inner strength.
