River House

FREE WRITING

I fell in love today
with golden rolling hills that border the horizon
The stillness of the countryside
The gentle hush of the river
The crunch of leaves under my shoes
The rustle of treetop leaves as the breeze passed overhead.

We sat at the edge of the bank away from the music and crowd.
I fell in love today
as I gazed at the sunset.  
Running out of time, at the appropriate time - did you know?

Flying on...

A Tangent on Love

FREE WRITING

* * * I love you * * *
Three words that can be shown not only through physical affection but the most minute and small simplicity of written words, all the creases, and valleys of pretty pattern papers. The time—god. The time I put to pour thoughts and precision into emotions. That’s okay, because all of my words are shallow. Three words that can not be taken back so lightly. Three words that should not be said carelessly. Three...

To Wield a Pen

FREE WRITING

I will never have my way with words and it’s simple as that. My indecisiveness with word choice is evident just as my evidence supports my statements sturdily..as a house of cards. My syntax does not quite make sense. I am inept and known for forgetting vocabulary—those dreaded moments when I’m in a pinch to find that perfect word. I am not sure if I am well versed with books and lines of prose and cannot seem to say exactly...

The Letter That Took Three Years to Deliver

PROMPT: Letter Writing Competition 2020

Dear person rummaging through my things, 
    Congratulations! You found my box of old letters. Strangely enough, I attached this one first because of the importance I learned through writing letters - letters to myself. Why? Because I wanted to be able to look back and see how I evolved through the many stages of life. Sometimes with change, we may not see it but others can.  It's similar to when you haven't seen a relative after so many...

Pseudo prisoner
bloody broken bust statues
bare trees bear ethereal white eyes sheltered by a black monk hood.
“Thanks for ruining my mood and polluting my tea party.” She exhales green smoke and lazily spins in a chair.

suspect. then rot.

A smiley crescent faced doll follows me. My new companion cries cracked tears.

The exposure of dead trees turn into April sakura, falling.
Wither to bare bones and skeleton dust—too many details crowd his mind. Flashes from the press...

Mixed Signals

FREE WRITING

My anxious heart quickens.
The air is warm and uncomfortable, traveling and circling around yellow and red lanes.

Stopping at green lights lurching
at red

Accelerated speeds not knowing where
Wasted time spirals in an endless loop circling and completing
Incomplete and unfinished scaffolding spray painted and etched with graffiti

With heaviness held in the air
Window roses wilt and it’s petals nabbed at to bloom; to stand tall, to see the world

I will never be able to see...

Palms up toward the reaching palm trees
Sweet smiles and orange creamsicles
Softly tanned skin, freckles on your nose and shoulders
Yellow and orange flowers frame the dark short coils of your hair
Sandy flip flops and tropical tropicana beats
Sway to the beat of the earth pulsing with the push and pull of the waves
Your hips match every move and step
Graceful hands
Summer love, how can I express my love to you?

My knight in an obsidian parka gliding on a four wheeled steed.
Rounding the corner bearing gifts, seeing string lights and a familiar figure at the edifice edge of concrete curbsides.
Smiles wide and breathless, I am as blush as his pink sweater; laughter laced tears that well and run. 
The welcoming scent of softener and toasted brown sugar embraces me.  So unreal and yet, you're within reach instead of a screen.
Following the trail of crumbled pie crust and...

Deadlines

FREE WRITING

Clicking in circles
Multiplication, duplication of tabs
Application expectation deadlines
Missed opportunities.

Time slips out of my fingers as I spill hourglass grains in frantic attempts to gain more.
Bile builds up, maybe I’m holding back crying.
I feel nauseous.
Perhaps it is late, I put on my sleep mask
and when I wake, they leave dark kisses under my eyes.

Bridging the Gap

FREE WRITING

Are you Chinese?

Do your people really eat dogs?

What is my identity?

Where did I come from?

Who am I?

What is Hmong?

Of the many questions I was asked growing up, some had simpler answers than others. How can I go on in life working toward success if I don’t know who I am or what my heritage is and where I am really from?  We are not on the map, there is no place to be found―weird,...
