Raindrops falling from above, give their souls up with a splash upon my windowpane. Selling their lives for my visual appetite, how selfish am I? And still the angels weep for joy and sorrow and cause the sparkling showers that come … Continue reading

Winter’s Night


She holds my hand and we step into a moment of our own. Nothing else matters, you share everything regardless of what type of emotion is being ingested at that given time. I feel that way about my wife and … Continue reading

Airbrush


She uses her airbrush with ease. Wistfully erasing the imperfections she sees, the mistakes she knows others must observe. It is a sad kind of art that takes place here. Instead of adding to a masterpiece a portrait is created … Continue reading

Awakened


Like a waking dragon, he rises tall. Stretching forth, magnificent, beams of morning light glisten off golden chest. Confidence, supremacy, these are qualities you once more exude. You stride forth, vigor renewed. A fresh look, a fresh face. And yet still the … Continue reading
