Flying on Broken Wings: Chapter 2


Aiden laid next to me until I fell asleep. When I woke up the next morning, he was right outside the tent with a small fire going. There was a raven sitting next to me and I smiled at it. It was a beautiful bluish-black color with black eyes. She hopped closer to me but when I sat up, she flew away.
    Aiden came over to me, holding two steaming mugs. "How are you feeling?"
    I took the...

Writing Streak Week 1 Day 1 - the dusty tomes of mythology.


the dusty tomes of mythology.

dusty crypts and intricate hieroglyphics adorn the stones of the land. pyramidal monuments house the three honorable dead. and khafre and his lion's body protect them, facing the sun's awakening.
fireworks of fresh green sprout from the banks of the northbound deltabound traveler who carries rich silt on its back. 
and masks inlaid with gold to honor the ones wrapped in linen.
there are feline goddesses and dog-head reapers of the dead from the land...

PROMPT: Ancestors Speak

    Florence smiled up at Ronny, her dress billowing all around her. "I can't believe tomorrow is the day," she beamed, a skip in her step. Ronny grinned back, and took her tiny hand in his, kissing the back of it. He said nothing. Ronny had been courting Flo for nearly a year and a half. A short time, in his opinion, but he supposed that when you knew, you just knew. They entered a tiny café just a short walk...

if anxiety were an object


if anxiety were an object
it would be a cloud
made of dust and steel
that weighs impossible amounts
while also weighing nothing at all

it would be just big enough
for it to consume you
but small enough
that you feel weak
for handing it off to someone else

it would be a choking smog
that grates at your lungs
and stops you from breathing

it would take the shape of chains
around your ankles
dragging you down

Writing streak: week 1, day 1


Three reasons why this challenge isn’t for me:

1. I cannot, for the life of me, write lists. In fact, I’m absolutely terrible at them! The only lists I’ve written would be a to-do list, or a list of things to pack when traveling. Anything else- I just remember in my head. Even after writing a list, I’ll nearly always lose it. I enjoy the chaos of going through life without lists, so, I never bother writing them. 

2. I...

simple beauties


truffula trees reaching their soft tufts up through your imagination
a blanket cocooning you with the gentle sound of a guitar strumming
the quiet of the night without the darkness
giggles while you twirl in the middle of the schoolyard
the moment you see the person who loves your shadows away
a moment tacked up on the turquoise wall in your bedroom
the splash of a stream hidden in a magnificent wood
puddles reflecting the dawn of a brighter day

One heart,
how many times will you break?

Four years of trust
how many times will you break?

PROMPT: Letter Writing Competition 2020

Dear senior citizen, 
I do not know you. You do not know me. But I have found a kindred spirit in a stranger and so will you. Because we are all kindred spirits as every single one of us is fighting a war that is waged on us by this pandemic.  
I cannot even begin to fathom the paralyzing fear that rests deep in your heart and I cannot magically make it disappear. After all, I couldn’t...

For The Family Of The Fallen (tw: violence) / second draft

PROMPT: Letter Writing Competition 2020

Dear Selvarani,

To ask about your well-being would be yet another instant of gross irony. I can't possibly imagine the pain you must be experiencing right now in these still, hackneyed frames of sorrow. To lose your family, the ones who have supported you through your darkest days, shone a light on your strengths, in an act of brutal violence that has sent shockwaves through our nation. That is something, that I, a teenager, who has spent the 15 years of her...
