No way! Submit anything you want, the prompt is just a starting point :) I read it a few times and just needed to get my thoughts together feedback-wise before typing something out. I welcome any and all interpretation of the prompt and don’t even view this effort as “my” thing! It’s a community!
I think your response makes a lot of sense through the lens of the universe being the ‘world of worlds.’ Most of us focused on specific images relating to our lived experience, but your piece transcends all that.
Please don’t feel like you need to apologize! I’m glad you’re here.
