Hundreds of millions of thoughts - Spray streaming from the soul - Into yielding, strong, slick channel - T'wards vision's luring hole. Doubts acidic dissolve many - Many more - flow away - Still, coated with self-confidence Some swim on - undelayed. Slick inspirations fluid Rippling muscles creative - Aid - thousands - although only one All others shall outlive Coursing with agitation - Re-formed by artistry - Rushing t'wards that glowing screen - Which conceit shall it be?
d’Verse ‘Conceit’ prompt
A conceit is defined as an extended and complex metaphor that creates that apart from creating an element of surprise. If a metaphor is used to enhance imagery the conceit is better suited to describe an intricate metaphysical or emotional subject.

Let’s write poetry together!
When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.–Ben Harper (b. 1969)
