    Old wrinkled hands Claws gripping a gold leaf railing Strait back Nose tilted Thinning hair grasping at a crown Pride filled eyes   The land unrolled A map unfurled Mountains bowing Oceans groveling Forests cowed And rivers stymied   An army marching Cacophony of dr...

    “Hi, grandfather. Whatcha doing?” “I’m waiting for it to show.” “Do you think it will, tonight?” “Hopefully. There’s a little hole in the clouds, you see it there?” “Yup.” “I bet you’ll be able to see it through that.” “Can I watch wi...

    There are some days Where when it rains, it pours When it snows, it hails When there’s a cloud, it’s a hurricane Some days where we only, Simply, Pathetically, Exist. And then there are some days Where the rain is a gift Where the snow is a blessing When all you want to do is ...

    Ship’s log, June 27, 1765 The pirate ship, commanded by the bloodthirsty Black Caesar, has been after us for a while now. They are dogged, and do not give up, even though after weeks of chasing us they still remain miles away. I wonder what they are after. They followed us out of Cuba, and chas...

    Every year, every spring, on the first rainy night above 40 degrees and no snow on the ground, the spotted salamanders migrate. Hundreds of the slimy amphibians come crawling out from under their musty logs and damp rocks and slowly make their long and arduous journey down to the vernal pool, which ...

    I must have woken up on the wrong side of bed that morning. I couldn't find my slippers, and my feet were freezing. The shower ran out of hot water, and we had no more of our favorite cereal. I spilled Wheat Chex all over myself. It was so cold when I ran out to catch the bus that my wet hair f...

    The first time the Nightmare came, I was five. I was dreaming of ice skating, but with two ugly and sinuous slithering along side me. But then the ice beneath my feet fell away, and I was drowning in the Nightmare. The world turned black, with writhing gray clouds contorting around my feet. A dark h...

    Screams filled Aedon Palace that night, the pained screams of the dying and the anguished screams of the assorted Family, and the shouts of befuddled servants running around in the dark. The screams emanated from an extravagantly furnished bedroom at the very top of the massive, white marble castle ...

I have the feeling that this has happened before, but I cannot remember anything before the nothingness. The dam is powerful, more pow...

    Chapter One: Instigation Tak rushed across the crystal roof of the house, the chiseled amethyst that was the trademark of the city Tethra digging into his feet. In his hands he clutched a parcel, the brown leather wrapping tied tight. He jumped onto the next house, his momentum keeping him from...

    In the early days, I was happy, drifting along stormy shores, soaring with the clouds above a forest, ever blissful. I watched as small life forms rose out of the sea and began to grow over the millennium. Time was nothing to me, I could blink and see a species die, I could stop to think and contine...

    ----- The dunesurfers whip over the hot sands of the desert, throwing up clouds of silt in their wake, cresting the dunes like boats cresting waves. I grip my sail tightly, angling it just so that it catches the suns precious rays and coverts them into energy. I know I can’t lose this race. Sca...

    The great stone walls of the Icithra jut up from the sea floor miles below, splitting the Straight of the Adder in half. The water churns and pounds against the jagged walls, foam spraying over the top, only a few feet above the sea. In six places, four on the east wall, two on the west, the rock ha...

    The Pythagean hawks are in migration. Overlapping red and green feathers ripple in the wind that tumbles across the Nardic Ocean. A scrambled, screeching caw rings out as the lead bird spies land. The circle formation used to protect from the ocean wind breaks as the birds fold out into their signa...

    Jack stepped out of the door and into the cool night air, the raucous sounds of the party still echoing in his ears. He walked briskly to keep out the chill, his brown hair blowing in the crisp autumn breeze. A dense fog pooled around the streets of London, covering up street signs, and muffling the...

    The hurricane had passed, and the beach behind our house was littered with shells and kelp. My dad took us down to the beach in the afternoon, to go beach-combing. We began to walk the shore, the sand damp and salty, but the air was warm and the sun parching. We found a nice spot at the tip of a ...

    I plodded steadily up the steep slope of Mount Tecumseh, New Hampshire. Snow drifted down all around me, piling up in great mounds on either side. My mind was heavy with thoughts of exhaustion and cold. Archaic tennis-racket snow shoes were strapped to my feet, and I used a wooden branch to suppo...
