PLEASE READ ALL OF THE DESCRIPTION BEFORE CONSIDERING SUBMITTING TO AVOID BEING IMMEDIATELY REJECTED OR PISSING ME OFF~ thanks
ORIGINAL, NEW WRITING ONLY, Contest Specific!!!!!!!
Synesthetes percieve the spatial and emotional word in a very different way from what's deemed 'normal' sensory impulses.
Synesthesia is a neurologically-based condition in which stimulation of one sensory or cognitive pathway leads to automatic, involuntary experiences in a second sensory or cognitive pathway.
In simpler terms, for those of us who've been diagnosed, perception is multilayered. Colors can be perceived as sound, and music can be seen in color, while a concept may take on a conversational personality. Snow on a roof on a bright winter day will scream. And a moon beam, for some of us, has actual flavor.
Inside the body of this contest, you, dear poets are challenged to step sideways from your 'normal' neurosensory impulses and step inside the mind of a synsthete, and create a poetic through altered perceptions.
For a broader range of explanations on specific synsthetic nuances, Wiki affers a well informed page here ;
Reviewers have often gone overboard with complements about my metaphorical capabilities, when in fact they are simply how I see the world in everydays through my fingetips, and taste them with my eyes, and hear them through motion, so on and so forth.
ONLY ORIGINAL WRITING WILL BE ACCEPTED
ONLY POETRY Will Be Accepted
Wishing all joyous sensory twisting! =)~
