Topic: Poetry vs Prose
Posted: 11 Jul 2012 20:25


I've noticed there seems to be a lot more attention paid to poetry on the site than stories.

I enjoy a good rhyme now and then but prose I'd really my bag.

Do you think if the 2 were separated on the site, the short stories might get more exposure to the relevant readers?

Just a thought

William Sheakspear walks into a bar.

The landlord shouts,
"get out, yer barred".


Topic: Kids eh!
Posted: 02 Jul 2012 14:12

I've got a 2 year old boy who's comedy gold.

I sat him on my knee as I settled in to watch a rugby match on telly. The game kicked off and Alfie (my boy) goes,
"oh. Dropped the ball. Pick it up."
"oh no. Fell over."
It was the longest 80 minutes of rugby I've ever sat through!

The Atheists

Raphe Gillet's atheist based stand up tour, "Down with Godders", sold out in Britain, New Zealand, Australia, Canada and the US where several shows were subject to vehement heckling. Roland Dawson's collection of Atheist essays, "Religion vs Citizenship", became a best seller across the English speaking world and was quickly being translated into a number of other major languages. ...

The Summit

Summer holidays aren't what they used to be. Everyone's into my baby brother now, which is fine, but it means I've got to look after my little sister. "Take Louise for a swim son." She can't swim. She's only six. She just paddles and cries if too much water splashes her face. There are some kids about my age climbing round the bottom of the big rock nearby, exploring its rock pools....

The Sheriff

Denlea wasn’t the sort of town you’d expect to see a tattoo-come-body-piercing parlour, but there it stood. 'HIBISCUS - Body Art and Massage' shared a row of grey stone terraced buildings with a chip shop, a boutique for mature ladies, a hardware shop, a butcher’s and The Copper Kettle Café. Its neighbours had opposed the opening of the tattoo parlour, objecting to the type of clientele...

The King of Bananas

Resplendent at his bamboo, yellow banana stall, the King of Bananas prepared for another day's business. His pitch, on the corner of Colombo's Duplication Road and Malasekera Mawatha had become an institution. Old sepia pictures of the high-rise-less streets show the stall in the same spot, manned by his great grandfather - Victorian Sri Lanka's Banana King. The stall and the title...

LAWMAN The pupils of The Sacred Heart Primary School in Denlea didn't care about evidence or validity. The story of Lawman and the ritual that accompanied it was their heritage and it was their duty to perpetuate it. As such, the story was handed down every year from fifth graders to fourth graders. And at least once a week, the male pupils would run their death-defying gauntlet. By the...

It takes a while to wake up. Consciousness has to wade through swirling fudge before it arrives for duty, as do new thoughts and last night's recollections. My bloodless legs have been elevated, for some hours, at an acute angle against the opposite wall which is only four feet from the wall supporting my back. The folding fisherman's stool wobbles beneath me as I grab the bottoms of my...

As the last grains of sand dwindle from the 2014 hourglass,
we ready ourselves to mark the end of another year.
Turning it over, the hourglass will once more be full, starting another year.
As we welcome in 2015 may you be blessed with peace,
good health and your heart over full with love.
