My favorite animal is a dragon and that's kind of a decent summary of my personality.

Look,
I know I should be reading that paper
I know I should be taking notes
but you know what happens to apple slices
when you leave them lying on the table?
Well so do ideas if you leave them floating
like butterflies without the catcher
 
I know, this is clearly not the time
to be writing about apples and butterflies
but can’t you see these precious beauties
wilting and drifting away
like bits of clouds astray?

Welcome to New Comer's Bay

FREE WRITING


Welcome to New Comer’s Bay
 
Perhaps you stood on New Comer’s Bay
scratching your leg with your other foot
looking around for something
that isn’t quite really there
eyes glued to the precious screen
you carry around in your pocket
to look anything but confused, alone or even bored
and to look very busy on the screen
you have no business to attend
 
Perhaps you stood on New Comer’s Bay
when the little yellow boat fl-unked you off ...

Headphones

FREE WRITING

I have my blue pieces of earmuffs
For listening to sounds that come
from the little lighted screen
Or the bigger one that comes with keys
Lost within my private space
Caught in the invisible walls
with the people in the screen
I watch and hear the things that happened
And things that never did
 
You see, people with ears like me
And glasses to help us see
Hold the legs of glasses beneath our ears
And the earmuff...

Ethic Decisions and the Atomic Bomb

FREE WRITING


Today, well, yesterday that is, I learned about ethical decisions. I say yesterday because I had to write this on a piece of paper because it’s impossible to write a decent article-essay-prompt thing when you are in the middle of a lecture. So anyway, yesterday, I learned about making ethical decisions in my ethics class. I was listening to this lecture and the teacher gave us an example of making an ethical decision based on the ethical standard. First we...

My Verse for the Powerful Play

FREE WRITING

The more I know, the more complicated the world it seems. There are ideas about the Truth that tumble over each other, getting tangled in each other’s massive treads, so that one has to tip toe carefully with precision around the biting dogs of arguments. But I realize now from an old book I before never read but watched, that the world is quite a simple place. I need not worry by which doctrine I must measure my life, or...

The Guessing Game - Magic is Here

PROMPT: Speech Writing Competition 2018

I think science is great. I think science is fun. But the one thing I dislike about science is that it ruins the Guessing Game. Back when we knew nothing about anything, the whole world was simply explained by one word – Magic. And under the name of Magic, people had hundreds of guesses as to why the wind blew, why the seasons change, and why sometimes the stars fell out of the sky. The whole world was an inspiration...

Us

FREE WRITING

We are but children of the forest
Grown and fed beneath the leaves
We are but children of the wind
Swayed, embraced within its breeze
 
We are but children of the river
Dipped and dived throughout the blue
We are but children of the caves
Were the fire gave us an important clue
 
We are but children of the earth
Sowed and reaped of bread anew
We are but children of the sky
Remember the moon and sun,...

Knot

FREE WRITING


When you see the sunshine
And feel it stabbing you blind
You know you’ve got a knot
Within your very heart
 
When you feel the gentle wind
And feel it thrashing your back
You know you’ve got a knot
Within your very heart
 
When you hear your favorite song
And feel like it’s horrid and wrong
You know you’ve got a knot
Within your very heart
 
When the air smells like poison
And you find a flaw...
