Miracle Drug

There have been times when I want to take a trip to the inside of your mind and possibly spend the day there and see, and hear all the things you haven't said. I would also like to spend the time looking out of your eyes and seeing all that you see, as well as watch your thoughts form and then come about. Wondering if you would feel a thing when I hear you when you call? Maybe you would...Read On

Lowenna and the secrets of light and darkness, Chapter 29

Lowenna is alone, her magic almost gone, and what awaits her on the other side of the door

Chapter 29 Other Side Of The Door Lowenna looked at the large imposing door.  It was the first one she had seen since entering the labyrinth.  She didn't want to go back, not through the room with all those dead bodies. She tried the latch, it moved, and with a strong push the door creaked open.   Lowenna froze.  There was a dead body in the corner, not a skeleton, but an actual body....Read On

Message in A Bottle

Being a kid, no one minds him as he collects wine bottles around the neighborhood. Every night, he carefully takes out a piece of paper and scribbles anything that comes to his mind. Sometimes a rhyme he learned from school. Sometimes a drawing. Most of the time, little stories his mom reads to him at night. At dusk each day, he runs to the shore and places the bottle on the hollow of a...Read On

The Show Must Go On

Is this the final act

The final act. Today, on February 24th of 2017, we open another play. It's Billy Elliot the Musical.

That was in December of the year 2013.  In this past December, I was in Nutcracker: A Kansas...Read On

Un-Invited

I am a stranger in a strange land standing here alone at the balcony railing, as I have done so often in the past looking down watching the scene un-fold below. With it, all like being something out of Dylan’s Desolation Row, and being able to see all yet, not being seen. As I stand here in reflective thought and contemplating the reason(s) or the folly of my being here as I stand here...Read On

Knife-Edge

Take just a step cried the sad man, and take a look down into the madness along with the patient queues headed for the gallows as songs can be heard for the hallowed. With only fear breaking the silence as all kneel and pray for guidance, as you tread the road above the abyss with a look down at the madman. While only spectres are the only ones who still have pity out in the alleys and...Read On

Outcast

The leprechaun sat by the tree in complete dismay, chained and cursed by his people. In their coming of age, leprechauns prove their worth to their kind by transforming stone into gold through mere touch. Each one is capable of doing it,  but the degree of purity varies. Those with purer feelings make the purest of gold. “I felt your touch, but your feelings are too strong and pure for...Read On

Sound Of Thunder

Lying here hearing the sound of thunder coming from the front that rolled in during the night, and sometime during or after the midnight hour as I find myself drifting off to dream. Starting to begin the crossing of those blue hills on the border there, as I enter into the realm of Morpheus, the dream lord and finding myself drifting deeply and crossing the river. Knowing that you are also...Read On

The Darkness

Time passes like it always does. But, this time here is different. This time I am alone. Alone, I have never been this alone before. It is not that sense of loneliness one gets when surrounded by people but no one who knows you. This is the loneliness that aches to one's inner soul. The kind one feels when their heart has been ripped away by a sudden loss. The loss an orphan, a widow, or...Read On

The River

My grandma and I sat on the bench, watching the river. I was eight, and she was almost eighty. “You see how still the river is, love?” she asked as she drew me close to her. “The deeper the river, the stiller it becomes.” I nodded. “Be like this river as you grow up. So deep, they will wonder and be drawn towards you. So still, you reflect all the beauty around you. So strong, you can...Read On

Blue Days

Every day seeing those passing looking like a chain of fools, and looking up at those blue skies above knowing that those blue days have arrived with every day seeming the same right now, and all the people are the same. Knowing when those blue days descended when I woke up with that blue moon in my eyes just about the same time these days dropped those blues down here on us and they...Read On

Rumbling in the night

"Oh please God, make it stop!” she whimpered.

She first noticed it when she awoke in the dead of night. A rasping sound which was growing louder as she listened. She nudged her husband beside her, but he didn't stir. Louder still and rumbling, increasing in volume until she could bear it no longer. She nudged him again, harder this time but still nothing. She covered her ears and pulled the pillow over her head. “Oh please God,...Read On

Prelude To War

Having been down through the wild side of life where innocence dies, and where the coffins stay where the judges have lied and had the innocent condemned. Having looked in the mirror and stared at myself and wondered if that is really me or just the enemy to make peace with staring back at me from the shelf? Sometimes I wish for the confusion to come and wash over me and carry me to those...Read On

Her Freedom

Then Megan remembered the nine millimeter.

Megan sat cross-legged on her bed, the math book for her master's program open in her lap, when she heard the gunshot and Freeman's yelp. He had no time to protect or react.

She needed to lock it, but the shakes had a...Read On

Saved By The Pink Panther

Our dreams can teach us many things, including empathy...

We hiked through the tall pines, down the steep embankment, in the shadow of the majestic railway hotel, until we reached the icy waters below. Why I was carrying an arm full of books, I do not know. As I reached the river’s edge, to the right, I saw a flash of brown and heard a growly whimper. I immediately knew where there was a baby; the mama was nearby. My friends hurried away from...Read On
