Earthfall (Prologue Part I)

The currency of Earthfall is despair.

  Prologue   When the Heavens Fell   Clear skies swirled above him; sunlight magnified the contentment reflected on his face; wispy clouds spun lazily in a sea of blue and the breeze carried the scents of summer across the land—blooming flowers, grass, trees, and the ever-present smell of animals that came with living so far away from the city. All those things created the peace...Read On

Adventures Across the Starways - Chapter 22

Sive stuck her head out the open panel with stun gun in hand and shot Darla.

Smithe fell to the floor, suddenly going limp. Darla's breathing started to slow. Blinking in puzzelment, she stared at his still form. " After all that time wanting me, is that all there is?"  She thought to herself as she bent over the unconscious man. She frowned feeling cheated. “Hey we aren't finished,” she cried out as she shook him. Sive stuck her head out of the open panel, with a...Read On

Dear Mr. President

I cannot send this message to you. I was going to write to President Obama, and I forgot to. I wanted to write on my behalf for help. I cannot do that now. You like to grab women; you have no respect for them. We must protect all children from harm and give them all the tools we can. We must raise them with self-esteem and to use their voices. They won't speak up for themselves or others...Read On

Kiss the Bride

This was, after all, the night

The Lollipop Gangster

It was the turn of the century before bubble gum filled lollipops had become the obsession of every Zambian child. Cola flavoured lollipops were all the rage back then. I would never quite go as far as saying I would have done anything for one, but I did do something quite shameful once. It was a hot summer morning in the city of Ndola. My mother had just sent me to the neighbour’s house...Read On

Smokes

In the dark when everything can happen in your imagination...

Alone again in this stone of a cell These four walls I called home Humidity is rising inside my room I am going out for a quick smoke My hiding place at the rooftop Where no one can see me in the dark The rain suddenly pouring hard Humid, no air, not even a breeze Still hot and yet it is raining hard Out of nowhere you appear to me In the dark as black as a raving crow Standing before...Read On

Pastoral Visit

Brother Pitman pays a call

"You've been good today, so when we get home, you c'n have some ice cream." Aunt Charlotte holds his hand as they walk out of the white clapboarded church into the spring air. Up ahead, at the foot of the steps, Brother Pitman shakes a hand, then another, smiling at each face of a sister or brother. His preaching lasted forever today, with lots of rumbling breaths and flipping his bible...Read On

The Old Front Porch

They approached the front porch hesitantly, passing between two blooming Rose of Sharon bushes with red flowers. A new place, strange to him, with dust specks dancing in the rays of the sun that flickered through the trembling chinaberry leaves down onto the weather-beaten wooden flooring. Everything had been painted at one time. Now just flecks still clung desperately to the surface of...Read On

We Danced

"Don’t look back," she said, and both of us were victims of the night, and we were also it seemed to be each other’s form of physical kryptonite, and somehow, I knew we were bound to be together. She also said to keep your eyes on mine as we took the floor in the fading dark light of the setting sun. It felt like thunder and the sound of heavy guns in my chest when she looked at me, and in...Read On

Alberta Clipper 2: We Are All Flawed

I am not who most think I am and I am not a traitor to those and those things I believe in, and I know there are worse things than death and carry my mistakes as I try to hide all of my regrets. I have dropped my guard rarely, and it is time to make peace with that one essential truth feeling now a days as if I am on the run. These might be the thoughts you and I both have that may be...Read On

Kisses

This is for you my lovely Godchild Kisses...

She is happy with the nature around her. Blooming flowers make her smile. She always loves to play, dancing, laying on the bed of flowers, hands, and feet up. It calms her to be on them. "Why are you always lying on the grass?" They asked her "It's comforting to be lying on them. I can smell the earth."

How I wonder what you are...

````````She carefully surveys the sleeping street from behind the wheel of her royal-blue Honda Civic. It’s the perfect hide, parked among the other late-model cars lining both sides of the road. The modest houses beyond lay dormant. No flicker of televisions from behind curtains hint that anyone is still awake. There’s no movement outside either, except for the dozen or so moths...Read On

The streets are getting’ empty, and I’m keeping a low profile as I head on down the line, out here on the fringes of the night as the last midnight train pulls out and won’t be back. Finding myself thinking of when I was in that North Country where the lakes and streams ran so free, and of those few friends I have had that were like good old bricks and stood the kicks, and never...Read On

Shadows are beginning to fall, and I have been sitting here all day, and it all has me wonderin’ if the faithful be rewarded or will they be passed by and end up in the pitching queues for the gallows yelling and singing praise for the hallowed?

Memories in a cloud

what do you see in clouds

Richard lay down on the grass in the garden holding a chewed ball, looking up at the clouds.  Seeing the familiar shapes floating past. He watched a Rocketship float passed, a shark swimming quickly, and then an image of his old dog. Just for a moment, she was there.  It was as if she was still watching over him.  He missed her.  “She is suffering you have to let her go!” his mum had...Read On

Thunder Kiss

Following these old railroad tracks and hearing thunder rolling out on the horizon, and it sounds like heavy guns that if caught by could tear me apart instead of having me standing here thunderstruck. Wondering what I can do and if I would have some help from you? Knowing there is no turning back even after having seemed to be caught out here in the open, as my mind raced wondering if I...Read On
