With two feet I conquer the end of my edge. As the glory of my rose arose with my pledge.   Where my weapon, in the midsummer fields, would allege. Here I bloom with the sun and my grace. As the sun sets my night beholds my space. But yet, my mind was a fog […]


Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #176: One Photo/One Story

This week, on Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #176, host Ann-Christine has chosen the minimalistic theme of One photo/One Story. I have two photos for this week’s challenge and both feature human emotions because in my opinion, a person’s emotions tell a lot about the person.

Shakespeare’s Marriage

A piece of Tanka prose For the past several days, my daughter has been sick; and my wife also caught the virus shortly after our six-year-old fell ill.
