  • The Forest

  • 10:13 AM, Found a Sprout in My Garden

    Cold grey air came wafting out the hole made by two great pines. A moment later the fog would get sucked back in, right into the deep of the wood, and then back out, slow and sickly. Drunk trees leaned out of the earth on either side of the hole, twist...

  • Going to be a Long Apology

  • Under the Forest

  • Paradise on Earth

  • Elsha's Bounty Hunter (in my own mind chall.)

  • Deer Crossing

  • The Calm Before the Storm

  • Ginger: The Last Shall Be First

    It took only a few hours, four or five at most, to travel from one end of Harken to the other. It was faster on the ground, but we knew it would be foolish to spend much time in the open down there. One never knew where a band of pirates might set up c...

  • In a landscape

    I drop down through the clouds and into the forest, my movement slow, almost suspended. The earth is coming up to meet me. My bare feet land softly on the forest floor. I take two breaths, inhaling my surroundings. It is daylight, and the pine trees ar...

  • The Test Of Trees

    Drove far past where the roads turned to gravel, then dirt. Parked by a tall tree with bright leaves, flanked by a twisted spruce with dead red needles. Put one mountain peak at my back, a beckoning finger raised, and mark another in the distance. A sh...

  • The forest

    There was something in the forest, they said. Something valuable. Many had set off to find it, they said. But none had ever returned. Then how do they know there is something there? But I am a sucker for tales such as these, and my mind was already ma...

  • Afraid of the dark

    The forest was old – that much was certain. Ancient trees hung with moss, roots all tangled together. It was also dark; and the air was dank. The forest filled me with terror – what ghosts and spirits are in here? What demons await me? ...
