A slow evening. Watching the planes overhead, Break the deep purple, Break the zen. I became enthralled, By the things she said, “Hello, How are you?” So enraptured. A soul, so beautiful, Her heart, so gifted, My heart was, unknowingly, Captured. Even if it’s only a romance, Watching her smile, That’s all in my head. […]

The candle lit, the flame dances atop the wick, dancing between the winds, pushed between pursed lips.  The arcane spoken word, the sunshine, bringing life to those without it.  The twist, thirsty and peckish for more like a deep pull, but settling for just a sip.

“Picking up grudges like hammers and axes, your temperature rises, your anger waxes.  Chop them all to pieces, slam them into cakes, have you never yourself made a mistake.” He shrugged his shoulders and said. “Why must I let it be?  I feel you are disrespecting me.” She coughed.  “My girlfriends are coming over.  This […]

Walking into the bathroom, I turned on the faucet.   I watched the water splash against the porcelain.   The drops scurried and hopped about the lip of the drain, reaching for the sides in a nearly desperate attempt to pull themselves up before succumbing to the physics and falling in.  I stood there focused on the […]

“Samaritan…Samaritan?”  She repeated.  Turning my attention away from the door, I wiped the sweat from my hands and walked back toward the bathroom.  “What did you see?”  She asked.
