About LarryFNigh


Writing is a passion of mine. As is the theater. Acting, singing, and dancing on stage are fairly newfound joys for me. They will get more of my time as I learn more about my craft.
I'm happy that so many have found pleasure in my poetry and stories. I hope to continue satisfying those who take the time and effort to dip into my writing.
If you're new here, welcome. Most of us are friendly around here. And open to forming new friendships. I know I am.

Good chance!Is it too late?

I believe he said the deadline for submissions was August 31, 2017. You could get something submitted if you hurried, I suppose.

Topic: Where has "All Picks" or "Story Picks" or "Poetry Picks" gone.
Posted: 13 Aug 2017 10:13

I thought the "All Picks","Story Picks","Poetry Picks", has to have at least 10 votes in order to be in those catalogs.

Maybe that is the answer. Thanks, sweetie.

Love is a Poem

Know euphoria, know the joy, Play with life as if it's a toy. "What did you say?" Childlike jubilance fills each day, petals of rapture line your way. "Please, for the love of all that's holy, leave me alone." Gaze at the stars, smell flowers bloom, dwell not on death, tomorrow's doom. "You mustn't call to me like this. Don't you understand, Go away." Love is the key to all of...

Let the Wind Caress Your Cheek

Let the wind caress your cheek When I am not here When I must be far away Knowing I will return if I may To touch you with my fingertips Once more Caressing your cheek The way that only I can Let the wind caress your cheek And dry the tears of loss When I am not here When I must be far away Let the wind caress your cheek Until my lips may kiss away your pain Until my love may wash away...

Come Lie With Me

Another liter of fluids infused. Another two hours. Tired. Leaning back. "Hello, dear. You were asleep again. You've been tired a lot recently. We may have to get you checked. Now lie back down. I want to feel your arms around me." A mockingbird was singing in the top of the tree. Loudly enough to be heard above the gentle, soothing sounds of the waterfall. The puppies were playing in...

After The Storm

The show went on. Billy Elliot the Musical had a run of six shows from February 24th through 27th, and March 3rd through 5th. We were sold out for all the performances. It was successful by anyone's measurement. And I completed the show.  We have a population of around 92,000 people in our town. Not too small, but even so it can seem rather small. One of the oncologists at my cancer center...

Winning The Prize

"That's him, Momma." Cindy points at Simon across the schoolyard. Her mother looks at him and smiles. He's pleased but not sure exactly why. He's the new boy in kindergarten.

Bucket List

Ever notice the figure in the shadows? The world passes by. Each person passing is one more added to the bucket list. The list is simple. Whatever is seen, whatever is heard, whatever is smelled is added to the bucket. The huge bucket getting filled but never completely filled. Yet. The bucket list of the world. Keeps the world whirling along. It's all in the filling. Today's savior...

Life Blooms in the Desert

An arts and crafts coatrack got hung on the wall today. It's been waiting for months.  Waterproof covers for exterior electrical outlets were purchased and installed yesterday. One more thing done. The day before some grocery shopping was completed. He felt up to eating again. An endobronchial ultrasound was performed on Wednesday. The results should be good. Little by little, more and...

May We Forget

We may not let our heroes fade with time Lest martyrs be erased from honor's scroll We must make sure the memories stay sublime Of deeds that still define our nation's soul Collectively we share the warriors' pain And cradle fallen soldiers of all kinds  We soothe the brows of patriots again To feel their sacrifices in our minds So raise your glasses to the ones who gave And let the...

To the Bone

To the bone, flayed through flesh and torn away from the tendons and ligaments of a tortured body. Moans of regret, mourning sensitivity, singular loss before the dawning of renewed passion. You have felt it before and wish for it no more; no more  with the suffering,  rejected and escaping, and waiting patiently for your destiny,  writ in your sleepless dreams. It is the last time  that...

Stories Coauthored By LarryFNigh


Strong heart is beating in a harmony, Each movement set angelically with pride.   So subtle that it matches musically, To center stage exquisite form does glide On pointe, on tiptoe, swaying with the tune The wind caresses, gently singing free. So calm her soul, like summer days in June But every step is like a storm tossed sea Behind sweet lips and eyes, typhoons may hide, With calmness...
