Ah, But Then …

AH, BUT THEN …

Ah! Wordless Wednesday.
I’d explain it but … No words!
(I’m stuck in Tuesday.)

An Enlightening Day At The Book Festival (Flash Fiction)

AN ENLIGHTENING DAY AT THE BOOK FESTIVAL

Having followed his writing career from its beginnings I knew his public readings and signings are rare. So imagine my excitement when I heard he was coming. He read a passage from his latest and then invited questions. The quality of these varied widely, as expected; but his responses? Flabbergasted! They were uniformly lacking in moment and often even sense. That insight, that wisdom; it had all been simply projection on my part. My cherished books now not signed, binned and that bitter taste in my mouth made me reflect on the old saw: you should never meet your heroes.

Misdirected

MISDIRECTED

I looked at a dog
And then looked at a person
Which one was awake?

If … Then …

IF … THEN …

Deceive or delete
Either way you unfriend Truth
Alongside friendship

Gale Force

GALE FORCE

Beware the winds, love
That blow away certitude
Or identity

Angels

ANGELS

Thoughts of flight and prayer
Lead one to think of angels
Fly freely, I pray

What The … ?

WHAT THE … ?

Beauty, sly, may don
Some strangely unforeseen gowns
While wooing our hearts

Living Free

LIVING FREE

No walls is just fine
Oh yes, no walls is just fine
… Till the roof falls in

Vacillation Row

VACILLATION ROW

Display or disguise
It seems we always remain
Somewhere in between

Enchanted

ENCHANTED

Even when asleep
My mind wanders endlessly
Among mirages
