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?
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
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!!!)
