"I'd like to see inside your head" she said
red head tilting to one side, brow fractionally furrowed, then smooth.
"Its a kaleidoscope of colour, 
musings, recipes and laughter,
with webs of memories clinging to each fragile edge of what I know of myself,
"
I replied. 
I smiled that of the knowing,
facing the inquisitive exploration of a woman in training.
So young, graced and grateful, she feeds courage to conversation.
"I seek peace to enjoy...

Who Do You Think You Are?

PROMPT: Open Prompt

 

Breaking ground
in silent reverie
each step creating the path
my ancestors will tread,
following genetically drafted
drifts of life,
I take another step.
One lane of life's super highway
laid out at my expense,
yet I'd have it no other way.
Each new vista, crests against a gentle sun,
The verdant growth, so rich, fecund
a jungle of challenges and trials
making my story a journey of discovery. 
My forebears grounded my foundations in their dreams,
goals met and lost 
and I keep trust,
forging ahead with joy and trepidation,
creating a road to my homecoming.

Fear's Requiem

PROMPT: Mysteries Abound


The timpani of heart beat shallow in my ears,
reverberates as ash filled throat chokes on words,
on smothered screams 
and litany of prayers
clamoring to be uttered
to save my soul. 

I hear only horrors.

Hairs bristle.
Chills climb the torturous length of my spine, 
disc by single tingling nerve clad disc.

The hall, swathed in bloody clawing shadows taunts,
its space a death filled maw that stinks of carrion;
some raven's pickings of another life wasted.

Silence does not...
