  • Transfiguration

    He was riding his motorcycle on a bright summer day when he first saw the ineluctable. He was roaring down a lonely stretch of highway and a field of cornflowers streamed past on both sides, a vast, shifting mirror reflecting the sky above. The motorcy...

  • Body Language

    Instinct is Ancient and alive; Our hands trace the faces We give our traits to: to survive. You, love, and I; la ménage à trois Shape shifting laws; Housed like clouds in the sky.

  • The Sky Tonight

    You should have seen the sky tonight. The rains had been steady all day, rinsing out the dust and thick air. After the sun fell, the sky was so deep a blue that it would be impossible to compare it to any color. I can only describe it as being as deep ...

  • Being Pulled From the Sky. Iamthemoon.

    I have never had a home. From your perspective, I live in the sky. From mine, however, I don’t just see “the world.” I see the worlds. I see all the stars; I see the sun. Everything was perfectly fine, though. I was happy up in “...

  • Lies

    Myriad colours swam above me as what seemed like liquid dispersed into numerous fragments which floated like clouds. I had never seen anything like it. Rays of light poked through, coloured in crimson red which caused a tidal wave of light. I took a st...

  • Witness to A Secret Moment

    Marketa’s faithlessness made the house too small. I found myself walking outdoors, down the grassy slopes to the shore, where an empty beach awaited moonrise. I breathed in the salt of the air, pushing thoughts of my fiance out of my mind to esca...

  • Standing on the Shoulders of Giants

    I will climb on the shoulders of giants, and look to the sulking sky, never such withering boredom, never such a deafening cry. I will be eagerly searching for God, or maybe depose him and make up my own, I will chase the horizon and play with the clou...

  • Monet

    If painters had the colors to replicate the sky and the trees that tower high above my head, we would all stop and appreciate the painter (with his stained hands and clothes) and we would stop and stare, eyes open, mouth agape, too enamored by the bea...

  • Into the Horizon

    The dull morning shed no light for the rest of the day. The gloomy clouds hung ubiquitously, forbidding any of the warmth or light the sun had to offer. The bitter wind passed through the bottle green spruce trees, tickling its branches, causing them t...

  • The moon hung on the sky [poem]

    The moon hung on the sky Just like an afterthought Half there Half not. I sat sunk into my silence Just like a stone That still That alone. Meanwhile you were shining Just like a newly discovered star That near That far. And the world continued its lop...

  • The Ring

    I’m raking my yard, trying to keep from freezing from the October chill in the wind. I’m humming a tune I’ve had stuck in my head for a week and I barely notice the glint of silver in the midst of browns, reds, and yellows. I brush aw...

  • Children of The Forest

    The forest was abandoned by the usual fauna that inhabited its realms. The storm that raged in the midst of the hundreds miles of forest poured an ocean of freezing rain. The thunder boomed and shook the soggy ground, rattling the weeping willows that ...

  • The Little Things

    We both layed, barefoot in the grass, looking at the sky. It was a clear day with no clouds. For a chance it was nice to hang out for a while. I mean, with my little brother, i wasnt running around the house chasing him, screaming at the top of my lung...

  • Sky

    So the blackest night is broken, shattered by the sweeping dawn. Purple clouds, a remnant token of the darkness almost gone, touch the sky like mountains solemn, like explosions frozen still. Up they rise, triumphant columns, bearing down upon this hil...

  • Chuchip (part 8--commentary)

    I imagine the boy and the stag meeting again… Maybe they’d meet somewhere and how through the clouds and passed Earth’s binds. Where there are no birds or butterflies… only the two of them, in different shapes and forms. Perhaps...

  • Moon Escape

    Hanging in the open, the Moon coughed and didn’t turn her head. How disgusting I am, she thought, as the mist settled over the world. Maybe they’ll just think that it’s moondust—just me shedding my magic down on them. The Moon w...

  • Cloudbursts

    Scratching his head, Teras looked down at the earth. Specs of green and blankets of shimmering blue made him long for the ability to touch and feel them. He rolled onto his back, feeling the cloud beneath him. His mind wrapped around the myths of human...
