-
Clair Leon - This is an extremely heart warming love story. Clair in her short story "one step at a time…" has a young couple Luke and Maria. They have a young son Dillon. Luke has a call of duty for war. Maria is left alone. She worries about him. She had plans for them but everything seems to be waning. One day, she changes her thinking. POSITIVE
-
Aislin Kane - Well, well. Sometimes uncertainty lends charm to a story. This is what raises curiosity. Aislin in her short story "tell them" has the hospital as the backdrop. The doctor has the task of informing a family that the father is dead. Of course, they take it badly. The little girl thinks the doctor killed her father. But is the father really dead or alive? DECIDE!
-
XUXIKI - Freedom is the most coveted feeling. Unrestricted and independent is the desire of everyone. Xuxiki in her poem "to be young again under the south african sky" brings alive this spirit. She is with her friend enjoying an evening out. South Africans wish to breath the free air. The fire is lit as much as the passions. There is enjoyment in air and heart. YOUNG
-
Darkness Whispers - Life has so many colors to offer. Our state of mind reflects those colors. DW makes a point in her poem "writing our book of life". People fill the pages of their life with brilliant or dull colors depending on their outlook. Some pages are read carefully and inspires others. Other pages go unread and uncared for. The world is made of the two extremes. MYSTERY
-
pastorofdisaster - This is an inspirational story. There is a lesson for everyone here. Pastorofdisaster in his short story "blaming grandma" has Susan, who had a tough childhood. Her mom never encouraged her. She grew up in negativity and was always quiet. When she attended Church, she always criticized the pastor. Struck with cancer, her negativity was intact. She never spread love around. She died without LOVE.
-
GreenTea - Valentine's Day has just passed. What better way to remember it than to read this beautiful poem. GreenTea in his poem "love poem - poem for mike poetry competition" espouses love. He may not have a loving tongue. He may not possess a caressing touch. As he is making his way to be a romantic, he is shy. He is quiet but cherishes his lover. HEARTY
-
tempest - Lovers are together and then they fall apart. It is falling apart that is truly painful. Tempest in his poem "sara" admits he had hurt her deeply. They were very much together but he became too proud for their comfort. He began to sink deep down under. He would scream too. And she drifted apart from him and finally left him. He can now only CRY.
-
A Darker AlterEgo - If tempest's poem made you sad, this will shake you up. Breakups are never easy. ADAE in his poem "you failed me…" comments on this heart wrenching event. He was madly in love with a girl. But things didn't turn up as he had expected. Feelings pattered down and there was a break up. He is still friends with her but it is not ESAY.
-
Harry Sonic - Everyone wants to be loved. Some eagerly await a lover. Harry presents this point in his poem "nobody given me love…". His childhood was full of love that has now gone dry. He never found love again. He doubts if it exists at all. He feels like a robot. He is just surviving and existing. His life is mechanical without the softness. He is waiting for…LOVE.
-
webmystery - She is my 100th author to write about. Wow. If there was ever a shortest story ever written, this is it - mere six words. Webmystery in her short story "a six-word story" has a tiger and a man. The man is admiring the tiger. Soon he faces it's ferociousness when the tiger attacks the man and kills him. The man's chapter closes cruelly. THE END!
-
Take care until next week...CHEERS!... and lots of luv and kisses...and...and...(I said SHUT UP!!!)

Ciao
