    The world is at its end. Across the sunlit sky, imbued with searing reds and ominous oranges, takes me aback to a memory from childhood of a blistering, soothing hot summer day at the beach in June, but at a thousand fold. Everything that was alive is ...

  • In the Midst

    At last. It was a shining, golden hour, like the sun had moved closer to earth. A hyper-real, hyper-luminous glare, light stabbing furiously at earth, plants, trees, grass. “Maybe this is what happens,” she thought, wiping fog from the pain...

  • The Sun, the Moon and the Stars

    No matter how bright the Stars would shine, they could not pierce the impenetrable darkness on his heart… so what had made the Moon think she could do just that? Did she not only reflect what the stars could give? She had no light of her own to ...

  • Sand, Surf, and Sun (homophone challenge)

    Beaches. They have sand, sun, and surf. There is one thing they lack however, and it is a travesty. There are plenty of suntanned, lotioned pecs and bikini clad volley ballers diving for a spike. But no matter how long I spent in the sun, surf, and san...
