    If it were to come down to paper and pencil, I would draw a thousand lines, all intersecting each other, layers of graphite upon graphite overlapping and shining at different angles with each little crumb of lead breaking off from the pencil tip like Hansel tearing off bits of bread to tra...

    Sometimes, I like to scribble my goals and hopes and aspirations on post-its with crayons pressed hard against paper and brush away the crusts of wax that cake the surface before sticking them onto the blank wall and weave dreamy words into dragon scales of colored post-its like Rumple...

    Why do you keep weaving dreams that might not even come true like Rumplestiltskin spinning straw into gold or like Arachne trying to spin her thread away from wisdom until Athena tears it into shreds. Stop chasing and weaving and chasing and dreaming away from reality....

    A red smudge dancing on white. A signature scribbled in the corner. This is life, an art student claims. No, it’s happiness in an empty world, another argues. But what if this isn’t an artwork by van Gogh or Picasso or Cézanne but a drop of red paint by a clumsy elementary student. A red smu...

    I finally found a serrated spoon not to sever fibers and to carve around flesh of grapefruit but to dig out your outer surface in search for the real you underneath....

    Did you notice that the paper with all our memories written down caught on fire? Memories cremated, instead of buried under piles of dirt in the dark. We should scatter them so that the little pieces and remnants can light upon worlds we always dreamed of going together....

    Tick, tick, tick. Teeth brushed, school over, homework done. It was a Friday, and starting today, Fridays meant a trip to a senior nursing home downtown. This particular nursing home was special; the Centers of Medicare and Medicaid Services of the department of Health and Human Services gave it...

    My professor scribbles the word "physics" on the chalkboard but it's in cursive and looks more like physcs because s and c are not bridged, the loop broken like snapped string. Instead, the dot of the i is tossed like a ball from s to c, like the exchange of knowledge. Don’...

    The light sea breeze embraced my face as I watched clouds looming against the light-streaked sky become diaphanous in the light of the fiery morning sun. The evanescent veil of the sun's rays fell upon the ocean, dimly glittering the water like unpolished sapphire stones. I watched the waves ...

    This starlight is silver; The earthlight, an arch of dying amber above unadulterated snow laid out. The lamp casts a dim light On the fresh white page Waiting for the words, the memories To be written, to be remembered. Snow shuffled New snow covered Page crumbled Paper smoothed. ...

    The color isn’t simply red or orange or pink but rather a blend of colors not so strictly distinct from each other like quantized energies. It’s a balmy blend, a smear, a mélange of a diluted lithium flame and a rosy blush of magnesium a color that can only be caused by iron oxide in th...

    It starts falling slowly, rocking back and forth the last leaf of deepest scarlet freckled with light amber joining the quilt of autumn patches that blanket the earth from which our sycamore tree grew Your eyes trace its path left to right, right to left, and down, down, down Taking a tub...
