Pan

FREE WRITING

    All children, except one, grow up.As little boys and girls, we all get taller and gain lines across our smooth faces. Our once-thriving imaginations slowly disintegrate into mundane, repetitive work schedules. Time which was once thought of as long-lasting speeds up until one day when we open our eyes, we discover our childhoods missing and forgotten. We turn into adults never knowing the magic we once experienced as wonderstruck kids. This happens to all of us except one lonely,...

Live

PROMPT: Forward Backward

Almost impossible but here you are 
Your birth beat the 1 in 400 trillionth odds
Named a miracle everyday 
Look around in awe 
Embrace the simple marvels of the world 
Flowers that bloom in early may 
The luminescent floating stars
The crisp wind on a sunny day
Melodic notes drifting from a worn guitar
Strong promises that won't become astray 
A loving family to hold
Life is beautiful 
Seen through eyes new and old

The Earthquake

FREE WRITING

The sky turned gray and the ground started to quiver slightly.
I walked down the stairs and saw two figures sitting at the dining room table.
Glasses on the pantry began to tremble, 
And teacups rattled from the cupboards.
Gestured over by a quiet “Honey, I think we need to talk”, I settled across from them.
The wind howled, releasing a tortured wail that echoed through the streets.
Lamppost lights flickered and the sun disappeared.
Their long faces were stern...

Fated Among the Stars

FREE WRITING

We didn't know anything,
But we thought we learned it all.
It took only seconds until 
We experienced the fall.
We had our hands joined together,
Like a prayer to the saints,
There our hearts began to tether 
With a pilgrims kiss that was faint.

The sun and moon were our protectors,
The only ones aware of the truth,
About our secret torn letters
From a Capulet to a Montague.

We gathered below their children;
The earth-treading stars,
Soft smile...

History Textbook

FREE WRITING

It was glaring at me from the walnut coffee table
Messily sat near an empty mug and an army of pencils.
Its red face taunting me, 
Baring its crispy white teeth,
And puffing out its chest 
With a prideful spine. 
I knew what it was doing:
Goading me,
Challenging me, 
Mocking me,
As I sat a few feet away
Slouched, swallowed in pillows
As I tried my best to avoid its eyes 
But I knew it was a losing fight. ...
