Walled

There is a castle with walls of sand, ever-shifting,
Always baking beneath the hot sun;
Heaped high by the wind’s dry lashings.

The walls are stout and sturdy,
But only when the wind shapes them,
And the sun stares harshly upon them,
Only then do the walls keep the wind out,
Only then do they provide a shady retreat.

The day comes when the sun grows dim and distant,
And the winds meekly murmur in protest.
The walls crash down,
And all scatters back to sand.

Blog Hard 2: Blog Harder

Tomato season is officially in full swing, which means I am now perpetually on the brink of exhaustion. I’ll be heading back to college in a week or two as well, and it seems apparent that I’ll be unable to continuing everything I generally do. With that in mind, I’m going back to a 1/week schedule for updating this blog. I probably don’t have any die-hard fans for this to demoralize, but I’m announcing it nonetheless.

Tune in next week, folks.

Feel free to read it, or not; that’s between you and the blog. Continue reading “Blog Hard”

Saturday Blog Fever

I’ve realized that an entire week is a pretty long time between stories, so I’ve decided to start updating bi-weekly. Get ready for some poetry and short-short stories.

In other news, I’ve realized my short stories this far have been distinctly fantasy-flavored, so I’ll be writing a distinctly not-fantasy story for this Wednesday.

Have a nice weekend, folks.
