A Sabbatical and finding magic.

Faithless. A haunting. #poetry and prose

Before you read this, I wish you to know, That hope lies within us all, That the greatest keeper of hope is faith, And that through faith, we draw strength to face the darkest of trials. Despite our beliefs. Faithless (A haunting) Drip… Drip… Fear falls and tears drop No leaps to take No faith…

Love’s bane #Haibun

Colleen’s weekly challenge. Love’s bane. If you have to look, you will never see If you have seen, you need only to look. Dark sinister night Bullfrogs croak and crickets chirp Prequels to silence Your heartbeat flutters I can feel it in the dark My subconscious is attuned to its rhythm All those nights we’ve…

Syllabic transitions. Living a dream

Being positive in a negative world #poetry and prose

Some places speak distinctly. Certain dark gardens cry aloud for a murder; certain old houses demand to be haunted; certain coasts are set apart for shipwrecks. When inklings of foreboding disperse, Instinct dulls the colours all round, Fear taints nature’s beauty, And trepidation turns all things gray. But sometimes there is nowhere left to go…
