Thirst And Desire

I heard the raucous voices in the back room of the warehouse—four men playing poker. A beer sat on the table adjacent to each man’s hand to quench their thirst. Fluids quench our thirst—water being the most essential. But, for some, thirst is never satisfied by conventional means. Hiding behind a stack of crates, I... Continue Reading →

Choose

They offered us three choices. When my planet died, we had nowhere to go, so we relied on other beings' help. If I could select a world to live on, it would be one of my creation. However, that was not a choice. They suggested to us three worlds, each with unique societies. One world... Continue Reading →

Restart

Starting over is common these days. It used to mean picking yourself up from a devastating, life-altering situation. These days it’s a way to cheat—to erase our blunders. People no longer need to learn from their self-made disasters or fateful circumstances. The world has gone mad—we cancel ourselves to become someone different. My neighbor is... Continue Reading →

The city, in complete chaos, groaned as it burned to ashes. Death was imminent, and the old woman surrendered her sight as she... Continue Reading →

Surreal Manifestation

Jane sat in her canoe, listening as the water bubbled and splashed against the side. She sat strategically positioned—staring down a tunnel between pilings of the pier. As Jane watched the sun fall asleep, a greenish liquid carpet rolled in its direction. Surreal. She waited for inspiration and watched for a sign of hope. At... Continue Reading →

Soul Corridor – Brendan and Cara

Brendan ascended the steep jagged stone steps to the top of the cavern. He stopped for a moment, glanced down toward the valley, still amazed at the journey he had embarked on. His adventure, though short-lived, gave credence to the stories his grandfather told him. The ancient-looking texts in his grandfather’s library wielded outlandish stories... Continue Reading →
