The Sun and the Moon

FREE WRITING

The sun banked beneath the city limits. The sky was alive. Alive and writhing, pink-cheeked with peach nectar slipping down its incandescent complexion. Power lines hung heavily with the combined weight of hundreds of pigeons. Exhaust pipes coughed toxic amounts of carbon dioxide; smog enveloped the lower atmosphere, giving it a sad, murky quality.

Whilst every other citizen in the megalopolis was trapped in the strangling hold of traffic, two figures duelled freely on the vast, uneven rooftops of...

Not Your Father #CuriousWriters2019

Seductress of the Sea #nonhumancomp

FREE WRITING

I shall sing my song from across the splenetic deep, leaping blithely as the wrathful waves rattle your sailor bones. Your galleon of one hundred oaks stands no chance against the ocean’s might; it shall reel and lurch terribly no matter how you may attempt to right your ship. Seafaring is no crusade for the faint-hearted. But the ocean cannot and will not be tamed. I will lure you toward my lair with my calling. And you will come to...
