The schoolgirl

Standard

Lance Sheridan

I am not at home.
How white my bed sheets are.
My small bed seeps dreams,
The moon is bare in trees,
It has no face or mouth;

Nor the schoolroom clock,
Parts, bits, cogs.
Departures, departures, the track
Of time empties white into a distance
Tap. Tap. Tap. I find myself waiting.

I am a pulse, a rehearsal attends me
Like a nurse; she is flatness, a dead socket.
I sit at my desk with cold angels, I saw
Their death in a holy book.
As I read, it emptied itself of its promise.

I remember the minute when I knew for sure,
I could see the dangers coming for me, I saw
My world in it— small, mean and black.
Every word hooked to every other word
Like swarms of fish, swaddled in a cold sea.

I was not ready. I thought I could deny the
Consequences. The…

Jean Lee's World

Let’s start with something sweet, shall we?

Matching shirt day!

Blondie finished the school year with a straight-A report card. She was particularly proud of her last story for writing class: “The Invention that Changed the Chicken World.” It’s a suspenseful tale of action and intrigue as Zach, a lowly chicken residing on a dairy farm on the slopes of Mount St. Helens, discovers that special rocks from the volcano will help him build a jet pack. He successfully builds a model only to be discovered by a nefarious squirrel…well here, you read it:

Little did Zach know that two sinister eyes were watching from the trees. Later Zach was walking back to the coop when suddenly, a squirrel jumped in the way! He was wearing an eyepatch on his right eye! Worst of all, he was pointing a GUN AT HIM!!!

“Gimme your rocks, sonny. Then you can have…

Train at crossroadsDan Antion’s Crossroads

First a note of apology.  Half the time, WordPress is preventing me from using “likes” on comments or on posts — even here at my own blog. I’ve logged on repeatedly and it does no good. As for the “happiness engineers,” they give me no joy.

If you’ve made a comment, be sure that I tried to acknowledge it.

Have you been to the crossroads?     

If you haven’t started the new weekly serial, Brother Love, or if you’ve fallen behind, here’s your chance to get up-to-date. 

It’s a mysterious, you might even say spooky story, set somewhere in the late 1950s, during the hot month of August, in a small southern town. I’m writing it in full-on pantser mode — completely unplanned.  The story is driven by random “things” readers leave in comments.

Fairy Tale: The Red Shoes

Standard

Nifty Buckles

Who would have thought a new pair of shoes could cause so much grief? Shoes are a tool for folks that live in Northern climates and keep feet sunburn free in Southern climates. Footwear, at times is vital to a person’s survival. Shoes keep our feet warm, dry and injury free. Evolving over time, shoes became a fashion statement to wear first by royals and wealthy people and later was available to the everyday person.

This story has a moral weaved throughout it vanity may become ones own undoing.

In the past this was one of the seven deadly sins of Christianity and this particular tale reflects this theme throughout. It also has a deeper meaning, craft your own pair of shoes, instead of wearing someone else’s shoes. (pertaining to ones own creativity and instinct.)

How important is it to be a less and less blemished witness?

A Glimpse of Heaven: The Philosophy of True Health

Playing the Part of the Less & Less Blemished Witness Guided Imagery:

All types of meditative guided imagery can fit under the heading of being a ‘less and less blemished witness’, albeit this meditative witnessing is a form of general guided imagery and can be utilized in almost any context or setting.

Being a less and less blemished witness, as unto itself a succinct guided imagery practice as such, is focusing (not thinking) on or about one thing or two or three things, e.g., with regard to witnessing just exactly what one is doing at any given time, ideally nothing more any nothing less. This meditative witnessing is the ‘sword’ (h’ou t’ou) that cuts out, erases thinking and/or cyclical thinking, so that one can eventually learn to genuinely (without fooling oneself) empty one’s mind completely. That said and yin to yang and yang to yin, even if one truly learns…
