POEM: ‘Brave’

You go against the grain until you grind into the ground,

While everybody waltzes, you salsa solely to your own sound,

A sound your soul is smitten to,

A rhythm only your aura has written to,

Yet you wear your ‘rare’ with a humility that glares.

While masses tend to consume mess,

And celebrate mediocrity in blissful duress,

In your stride resides a resilience,

Which only resonates with those whose paths will not be paved,

Your most admirable attribute is your ability to be brave.

#SUITCASESTRUGGLES #1 : Border Beef

When the allure of travel is bypassed by border control drama!

via Daily Prompt: Deny

So you decide on a destination. This may or may not entail the accompaniment of friends. You submit the vacation form at work- or if you are anything like me, decide that you are going regardless of whether they approve or deny your request as you have more or less pre-planned your resignation.

FICTION: ‘Interest.’

Interest

SHE…

Had never encountered someone like him. Infectious. Reflective. Brooding. Sharp. Sunny. Warm. Level Headed. Fragmented in parts but collected. He would be one of the few to enter a sacred place that she sheltered from the majority. Continue reading “FICTION: ‘Interest.’”
