    My grandmother and grandfather have been happily married for 60 years, but they never tire of telling the story of how they met. Grandfather’s first job was a sailor aboard a merchant ship.

    They had met in a diner beforehand as an unspoken agreement. Mr. C had only mentioned, in an offhand way, that there was going to be a meteor shower that night, and who could miss that? His fifth period astronomy students exchanged questioning looks, as if to say, “Will you be there?” That qu...

    We pull up to the ruby red And jerk to a stop I tap my hand on the side of the car, Eyes staring intently ahead. The car hums idly, All revved up with nowhere to go. I hold my breath, Waiting. Finally Green. The color is startling, Bright. Where could I find this color in nature? Yet ...

    There is a window on my heart. It is tiny. If you were to press your face against it, You would see a wide, green land. There are valleys and lakes there, Mountains as big as a story, Trees as tall as a tale. When I sing, The sun rises over the hills. When I cry, the valleys drown in rain....

    Head Librarian Windess stared over the row of flashing computers, eyes troubled. Walking over to one, she stared at the screen, lips moving soundlessly. On each screen read: WARNING! YOUR COMPUTER IS INFECTED BY A VIRUS! Clicking on the dialogue box, a list of the files affected came up. No o...

    "The scent rolled over him. He looked up. Overhead, a lilac tree was in bloom. Damn! Damn! Damn! Every year he forgot. Well,no. He never forgot. He just put the memories away, like old silverware that you didn't want to tarnish. And every year they came back, sharp and sparkling, and st...

    Beach glass Catching the sun Like a rough sea-jewel Plucked from the orange sand Rough around the edges. Dizzy under the oak tree, Spiky grass underfoot. The tang of apples on my tongue, Words in my lap. Stars, Shooting stars. Dreaming of the Island....

    Recently while I was at Girl Scout camp, a group of us were walking around camp with a counselor, re-painting posts and gateways for a community service project. It was a while to our next gate, and we didn't know what to talk about. Then somebody asked--I'm not sure who--what they thought...

    Her name was Shadow. Well, not really. It was actually Kelsey, but she hated her real name. We were at Girl Scout Day Camp--the place where every counselor and counselor-in-training doesn't use their real name, they use a "camp name". Mine's Bookworm. Hers was (or, is) Shadow. I...

    I don't really have a problem with religion. I don't have one myself, but I am totally fine with having one. I think that what's wrong with Christians is that they don't respect other people's faith and beliefs. They say that theirs is the only true religion, the only one th...
