What People Don't Realise

A short story by Andrea Snyman. Some stories begin where you think they end.

What people don’t realise is that death isn’t what they think it is. ~ You find yourself in a waiting room…Sitting comfortably on the couch. It’s not too cold, it’s not too warm…It even comes complete with old school elevator type music. They probably fig...

Just Pondering

Think about it.

Just pondering.Can you name even one truly two-dimensional object? Stuck? I can not think of a single one. A photograph still has a thickness even if it is small. A line on paper? Still, has the molecular level of height making it three dimensional.I woul...

Sleepy, I wake up.6 AM, my clock tells me.But I don't need it to say the time anymore,I know it already,as everyday, it's the same thing.It's the same old song,every day.It's the same old poem,being told, again and again.It's the same words coming from my...


Was it Calliope at play?

Puffy pink clouds dancing across a dawning sky.Billowing pillows, fluffy, tenderly inviting, sigh. Angels resting their heads, maybe dreaming?Brightening with the breaking day, gleaming.Picture perfect shades of dark and light.Shifting from darkness, a da...

Imagining angles singing as night turn to day.

Venus, Moon and Jupiter all aligned. Heavens lightening, a gorgeous display. Planets creating a celestial chorus line . Singing praises of a coming new day. Gradually Venus and Jupiter are fading. Mountaintops radiate a copperish glow. Quarter Children's...

Life Appreciated

Just how quickly life can be ended.

As I get older, the more I appreciate life.Take the little Chickadee I found today.Once, living life with not too much strife.On its back, still, lifeless, black and grey.It had flown into a window ending verve.Spirit leaving his body in a millisecond. At...

 Good morning stars--again our orbits crossand I see your worldshigh above my life, my eyes touching youmillions of miles awaywhere we meet each dawn, your burning worlds swirling,though some are embers nowburnt out light years ago,a state I cannot knowsi...

I am here

I am everything in the universe.

I am hereI am the ground you walk on,the grass beneath your feet. I am the song on the wind, soft breeze through your hair. I am the smells in the forest,when you walk alone. I am the song of song bird,singing, you are not alone. I am the golden reddish s...
