    A cardinal rests on a tree branch Motionless Silently stares His feathers, in brilliant red, a stark contrast to the bare branches around him. The wind whispers Goodbye. The cardinal holds my gaze I will be okay....

    The door creaks and groans rattles and shakes as if someone is trying to open it straining against the bolts in an attempt to rescue me to take me away from this mess in a whirlwind of night snow and laughter But it is just the wind that cries and howls, tries to break down my door. And try...

    The waiting room is crammed with carefully arranged sticky nylon chairs. Magazines clutter the coffee table, amid ads for invisalign and whitening products. False smiles and perfectly white teeth. The name of the brand is Trés White, which I find pretty ironic. Don't mix French with E...

    You carved a picture in the sand and willed life to be like that. I ran through it and laughed, my giggle drowned out by the roaring sea. What’s that supposed to be? I ask. I ran through the waves, soaked through to the skin, singing my words where no one else could hear but the sea, who ...

    A pair of old worn leather boots slung over a sagging telephone wire, the frayed laces tied together in a barely decipherable knot— that his father taught him in boy scouts, Tossed to its estimable height by a skilled teenager on his fifteenth try on a dare. One of the souls barely clingin...

    The sun’s golden rays creep over the horizon, Breathing life into the world. Flowers turn their brilliant heads to bask in her glory as Birds sing their lively tune through the rustling trees, Waking the baby deer, who, with a presumptuous air, nudges her mother awake, and skips Through the m...

    Some days when you walk outside in the winter icy gusts of wind blast across the landscape, stinging your face and carrying the snow where ever the wind blows. You close your eyes, grit your teeth, shiver, and turn your back to block the gale But you smile, loving the feel of wind in you...

    This heart is by no means perfect. It is slightly uneven around the edges, a little unsure. It is self-conscious and has sarcastic tendencies. It is witty and loves to tease, in fact, It may even have a mean streak. It’s more than a little lonely, perhaps bordering on desperation. It ...

    Lady and Lord Capulet held a splendid party at their home last night. Between the music, dancing, and a huge array of refreshments, the affair was a definite success. The table was spread with wild boar, chicken, lamb, and turkey. The biscuits were fresh from the oven, and as soft as puffy pillow...

    Spring was the smell of the wind in your hair. We ran up the hill together, laughing. I can still feel the life, like the flowers, coming alive after a winter of waiting. You picked a goldenrod and tucked it behind my ear. And I fluttered my lashes and laughed. You didn’t know that I’m alle...

    He sat proudly on the horse, grinning from ear to ear. “Michael. Would you like to go a little bit faster?” “Yah.” He said, in a tone that implied that he obviously wanted to go faster. “To ask Sarg to trot, you have to say trot. How about we trot when we get to Grandma to surpri...

    There’s a kind of love that swipes the mind clean of logic, A tender ache omnipresent in the core of your chest, It’s pervasive aura encompassing body and soul. The sensation lingers in the air, a fog that settles upon all who see. Perhaps you feel it in the midst of a Jane Austen novel, or ...

    I am from worn books with bent covers, and reading under the covers with a flashlight. From cluttered albums that fill the house with music, Paintings by my grandmother, a piano, a radio that only knows National Public Radio, And a sink that produces the opposite effect of what you intend. I ...

    The mound builders built mounds for which to bury their dead so that they might be closer to the heavens. The ancient Egyptians built pyramids that reach into the sky as a symbol of power and of remembrance. We bury our dead deep beneath the ground under clumps of dirt and tears cemented ...

    When I cried you cried with me The tears streaming down your face Faster than the hail streamed down that day when Obstinate We decided to build a fort outside Of an old blue tarp, tied from each end to the scrawny apple tree. Golf-ball sized hail. We couldn’t believe it. Trapped and vu...

    When I chew a piece of gum, I immediately think of the heaps of chewed rubber all over the world. I agree, this is not a typical reaction. Still, I can’t help but wonder. About six months ago, I brought this up with my family and some friends. As I mentioned, this was six months ago. They...

    Trapped inside a solid ball your mind is your prison. Frantically clawing at the glass walls Your eyes dart over your surroundings. You flinch at the slightest hint of noise. Head tilted just so, looking up at them. You emit a pathetic complaint. But they laugh, and you are left trapped i...
