Descriptive Piece Three

She awoke suddenly, taken from the dream-state as though a rope had pulled her physically away. She automatically breathed in the cold morning air, a great stuttering breath, but instantly hacked it back up again, the cough sending tremors through her whole being. When she had recovered, the young woman sat up and looked around, clutching at her bed with taut fingers. It was the same as when she had gone to sleep – the desk, the chair, her clothes…

A Tender Moment

A Tender Moment

Two real moments merged to the fictitious They walked, the lake to one side, in the gathering twilight. The sky was a beautiful riot of purples, blues, reds and oranges as the sun sunk into the water at their left. “Duck!” he said, needlessly pointing to the gathering of waterfowl. The compulsion to quote was so strong, she didn’t even try to resist. “Behold the duck. It does not cluck,” she said. “A cluck it lacks; it quacks. It’s especially…

Prompt: Cheese

Prompt: Cheese

[NB: In honour of my lover, who suggested the prompt] Andy stood in the kitchen, pondering. The sun shone down through the small window creating a super heated square of light on the work top in front of him. To anyone observing, the scene would look quite odd.

Descriptive Piece Two

It’s quiet today. And cold. The mist seems to wrap around everything and dampen the sound it makes. Trees stand as dark sentinels to the park. I imagine, as I walk through them, that during the night they’ve been talking, strategizing like military generals, against the coming day. In the pale dawn light, my breath huffs out in clouds of water drops that cling again to my face as I walk forward. Further on now, and those majestic giants are…

Promt: Describe how you get your ideas

In that ethereal space that is known as the realm of inspiration and Ideas, the gate opens and the gate keeper dispatches another good idea to some unsuspecting writer, poet, film maker, or journalist.

Prompt: ‘That noise!’

Prompt: ‘That noise!’

Behind her the noise escalated into a thunderous roar. Jessy looked to her left to see Phillip running beside her. To her right was chandler, also running. Jessy glanced behind them, at the rushing water, getting ever closer and ever louder. Her mind was filled with only fear and panic and survival. Soon the water would catch them, she thought, the wave would scoop them up, like a giant watery hand, and carry them further into the caverns. The trio…

Descriptive Piece One

After the noise of the street, the silence of the church was deafening, Richard thought. As he stood on the threshold, he considered briefly the chill and that vacuous silence, and how it lent sincerity and sanctity. Richard took a step off the prickly mat and listened to how the hard leather sole rang out against the tiled floor. He took another, and then another until the silence was filled with his ringing footfalls and he was stood before the…
