The Progress – Day Six, BONUS POEM

I started this one a few weeks ago so it is going to be an extra prompt for the month. I plan on making this poem into a micro book as a companion to the main book. I already had one through seven and now I need the last three. I decided to try to finish it today!

BONUS PROMPT: Describe justice in ten objects.

The first seven items came very easily in one short sitting, but the last three escaped me for all these weeks. I decided to revisit it since I wanted this to be another project book. So I went to google and looked up things about justice other than the vengeance that I was originally writing about.
Justice is a concept of moral rightness based on ethics, rationality, law, natural law, religion, or equity. It is also the act of being just and/or fair.
The concept of justice is based on numerous fields, and many differing viewpoints and perspectives including the concepts of moral correctness based on ethics, rationality, law, religion, equity and fairness.

This Google books excerpt about “natural justice” was interesting to me. Was it relavent? Maybe not, but it was definitely interesting.

Trying to do some word association of things that imply justice…
lightning (Zeus’ immediate retribution)
karma (the universe’s dispensation)

Aaaaaaand… I still need ONE more word!!! >_<

Because I am me, I like to end on a positive note if at all possible so I was trying to think of what would be a good strong word to end on… The drawing board, I am going back to it… I have not found a positive way to end this poem. Rocks fall, everyone dies. And so the poeming continues.


What is your process when you write? Is there anything that is your standard “go-to” method? Do you use prompts or just write from your own thoughts? I would love to hear your take on this in the comments!

Thanks for reading! ^_^

I plan on doing the annual chapbook as a perfect bound book and all profits will be divided evenly between Rachel McKibbens’ Outlast Project and the local women’s shelter.  If you would like to pre-order this book, you can do so for $15 via PayPal to and please be sure to include your shipping address. THANK YOU!
