The Forest~ a Poem

The forest is a lonely heart That prowls by night outside my window And wanders in its troubled sleep (whispering, and dreaming) Through folds and shadows of the earth. Its breathless dreams are prayers, Lofted to the stars In the bowed and trembling vessels Of its leaves. If I should creep between its shadows (silent, … Continue reading The Forest~ a Poem

I tossed more pretty words in to fan the flame to life again, but it only seemed to smother my blinking muse deeper into oblivion. After my tired … Continue reading How NOT to Write an Epic Climax

I Took a Vacation to Outer Space

For those of you who noticed, there was no Thursday last week. I know, because I was in space, and the sirens who live in the dark places between the stars told me there wasn’t. *coughs* Actually, I have a new sibling. And new siblings trump timely blog posts.
