The Coming of autumn arrives with swift ease,
As you notice the leaves fall down from the trees,
The birds and the beasts gather much food,
Cause winter brings less,
It leaves a foul mood.
The time of autumn is when nature slows down,
The leaves first change color and dance all […]

He sits with his right index finger wrapped loosely around the trigger of a loaded gun as he lightly traces the barrel with his other hand, letting the soothing sensation flow over him. He doesn’t feel much anymore; his emotions have grown numb. He inhabits a […]

Karen pulled a small jar out of her purse and handed it to me.
“Don’t break that. It’s full of cyanide,” she said as I took it.
Karen was thirty-something, older than most of the other grad students, with sand-blond hair past her shoulders and a wiry back […]

There are long days and warm days during the summer’s might,
While the sun shares all of its blinding bright light,
The short summer months are when nature is bountiful;
Though, humans make time to make memories that are wonderful.

There is joy,
There are sights to behold,

The soft touch of spring melts away a season,

The season quite cruel,
The green reappears,

The beasts reawaken to play.
The tale I am telling has an excellent part,
The season of […]

A special season once a year occurs that almost everyone enjoys, Christmas. My childhood Christmas was always ideal, the one that all kids would like to have; full of traditional food, homemade desserts, gifts, and happy faces. When I was a child I used to think […]

On the first day of school, all of the students walk into class and look forward to seeing who they will be seated by. Everyone wants to sit by the smartest kid in the class, but no one wants to sit by the loud, obnoxious and […]
