DWP: September 1

A rugged rocky coastline with a grey, overcast but softly beautiful sea gently rolling in against the ragged black edges of rocks.

Today is the anniversary of the Great Kantō earthquake, which hit Japan in 1923. This day is known as Disaster Prevention Day to commemorate the earthquake and remind people of the importance of preparedness. So today’s prompt is to write about a disaster you have experienced but using a metaphor of natural forces to describe it, or to write about ways in which you prepare for or cope with disaster – be really specific, look for the tiniest details and where the mundane meets the epic. Or, to write in response to global forces, environmental events, huge scale tectonic movements and relate them to your own body in some way – how can you comprehend global scale as a single human?
