A Christmas Tradition

Christmas traditions are the best. A lot of people do Elf on the Shelf. Some families bake Christmas cookies every year or make gingerbread houses.

Poetry: Transcendental

Transcendental Over seas and rivers foaming waves drenched in sunshine heat. Cutting currents winding through the land, unstoppable. The Pacific, Salmon, Indian, Margaret River and the Truckee.

Poetry: Untitled

https://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js As the leaves from spring trees tire and flutter to the ground, somewhere waves are crashing and wind whispers all around. The thoughts that drift inside her mind were never quite as clear as the day when every single thought lingered somewhere near. Everything was going great and nothing could go wrong. It wasContinue reading “Poetry: Untitled”
