The Lady of Shalott.

The Lady of Shalott    Dark clouds bringing a biting cold breeze, not quite a wind… yet. It was enough to tangle her hair and make her feel untidy. She walked along the edge of the stream and watched the ripples created by the breeze and the branches overhanging, allowing their shadows to bleed into […]

Crime Scene

Inspector Rodgers took a deep breath. After all these years he still dreaded the normality of life that surrounded a crime scene. The bodies, however horrific the death, no longer bothered him, but the fact that everything else around them just carried on as if nothing happened. That’s what really bothered him.    A sliver […]

Soul Magic.

I closed my eyes and relaxed, leaning back against the step. It was a day where it felt good to be alive. Spring had arrived, the sun was warm and the sky blue. Birds flitted from tree to tree, enjoying the freedom of the season. Whilst nature flourished around me, I felt that I could […]

He was out of the house and walking along the gravel path in just a few strides. “Bloody gangsters” he muttered under his breath. “They need sorting!” […]

Flow.

Memories, as painful as they were sweet, Burst forth and flowed greedily through her heart. Tears pooled in her eyes, Then as gently as a budding tropical waterfall… […]

The Friendship of Hares.

   Somewhere in England, Trish walked the fields, taking some precious time for herself. Life had been far too busy recently. She looked skyward and noticed the faint signs of a moonrise, she finally began to feel herself unwind and feel more at peace. She lay down in the grass to watch the moon for […]

The Dream.

Thanks to schingle for the inspiration.    Tap, tap, tap. The conductor tapped the music stand. The musicians looked up, poised to take the audience on a journey that they would never forget. As one they struck the first note. Behind them a screen lit up and the celestial beauty of the aurora borealis sprang […]
