Another two for one on challenges. (I used the word unforaged instead of forage). Have a great weekend all!
“Illapse: A sophisticated word meaning the gliding or sliding of one thing into another or to fall or flow. The illapse of new words into the English language shows no sign of abating.”
“Immure: The Latin word for a wall is murus and this provides the root for mural, a wall painting. To immure is to entomb or place something in a wall. Immure also has a general sense of somebody being walled in somewhere in a figurative sense. Ever since he bought that games console my son has been immured in his bedroom for hours on end.”
“Immutable: Immutable derives from the Latin immutabilis, meaning unable to change. The modern sense of immutable is something that is set in stone, so to speak, and cannot be altered or changed. There are immutable guidelines for dealing with such situations.”

Weekend Writing Prompt | Forage
Immured in this cycle,
I wake, I rise, I do, I fall, to sleep.
How would you feel if today was your last day?
Because in answer to the very same,
I felt sad.
I’ve ticked the boxes of society.
Illapsed into the tempo of the average.
I think to times I am filled with pure life,
And wonder how to make every moment mirror those.
Could I let a different light guide me?
To a land unforaged, open and free.
