The Garden In the beginning god created the heaven and Earth. Some say it took six days, others say it took billions of years, and god says to both of them 'you weren't there so shut up.' But I digress, after creating the Earth god created life to inhabit it, because why work your butt off to paint a masterpiece if there's nobody to appreciate it. Plants, animals, and many more creatures were made. And after that the platypus was made out of the leftover parts. But they didn't stop to complement the almighty on its hard work, so god decide to kick it up a notch.The Garden5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

That’s what Denise’s first thought was as she first laid eyes on it. She hadn’t visited the garden in her small town’s park for quite some time – she spent most of her summer off from teaching working in her own garden. When she wasn’t on her knees in the soil pulling weeds and planting bulbs, the 39-year-old high school history teacher spent her days in her backyard pool, or laying out in the hot sun, reading and working on her tan.
This hot, sunny day in July had started much like all the rest for Denise; she got up, made herself coffee and breakfast, then she went out into her garden for a while. She had flowerbeds in the front and both sides of her Cape Cod-style house, and a garden in the backyard, with sunflowers, lettuce, tomatoes, carrots, and other vegetables as well. It made her proud anytime someone driving or walking past her house would slow down or stop to

I remember when we were younger and we’d arrive to see you. The first place we’d go was to the window, pressing our faces against the glass to try and catch a glimpse of you. We’d look out, and you’d be there. Like you always were. In the garden.
Each trip was different, an adventure. There were rows of neatly sown lettuce seeds, bean stalks twice as tall as we were, ripe strawberries just waiting to be found by our greedy little fingers. Tomatoes would be taken and made into sauce, lemons would be squeezed to create limoncello, grapes transformed into a sticky grape jelly which tasted of summer and childhood dreams.
I kneel down and gently touch the small weeds which are beginning to sprout. I can feel the soft, moist soil. I remember your weathered hands sifting through it, removing the weeds that now grow from the ground. It’s hard to believe that I’m now alone, in the place whe

Safe from what?
Her eyelids flew open and she sat up, her vision blurring as a head rush consumed her momentarily. As her vision cleared, she managed to get a sense of her surroundings. She was in the middle of a garden, and a strange one, too. All the flowers seemed to change in the dimming light of the sun, fluctuating and returning.
Shakily, she got to her feet, her head spinning.
Safe from what?
The question remained in her head, as she began to walk around and further examine her surroundings. She was on a dirt path with small dusty blue stones embedded in the soil. Off in the distance the sound of a fountain was evident and there was a faint song in the air. It went softly and sweetly, the lyrics moving with grace and beauty.

GardenWith the call of the morning mist, flowers begin there bloom. Held high towards the skies like puppets suspended over the ground by puppeteers, the flowers danced lazily with the wind. Butterflies, amongst the other insects that inhabited the beautiful garden, fluttered to the pedals of these devious blossoms. The sun spread its warmth over the soil, and with its intense glare it shined off of the threads of a perfect spider web; making sparkles shine abruptly at the stems of the flowers from where it hung. The prosperity of the garden was wicked and sublime, and the rusty metal bars that fenced it now held no barrier to its growth. Birds hummed along to the liveliness of the episode, listening to the soil for worms and other meals. Cockroaches lay dawdling under the shade of the flowers, which now leaned towards them with the push of the wind, beratingly. The scent of each flower fused together and drifted to the sky; and on a personal note, the scent was absolutely alluriGarden6 years ago in Horror More Like This

"I would love a woman who is like a fairy in that she is innocent and kind, and she loves me for who I am." Arthur Kirkland
Your wings felt heavy as you tried to find a nice place to take a nap. You had worked hard all spring in order to make the flowers bloom nicely for summer and you were exhausted; especially since you worked through last night to get everything done on time! Pollinating the flowers was such a tiring task- even with the help of the hardworking bees- but you were happy that your job had gone well. All of the flowers looked wonderful now!
You were relieved when you finally found a house out here in the vast English countryside and you landed on one of the white windowsills nearest you. The faint heat of the rising sun felt wonderful on your tiny, worn out body, and you lied down on the warm white wood.
Before you could drift off into much-needed sleep, you smelled something wonderful coming from the side of the hou

They gave her a room under the earth, and all year round she sat between the walls and the ceiling and the floor and struck her flint fingers together, burning cinnamon sticks to stifle the dying leaf smell of her.
One day another girl with fire in her long wheat-blonde hair walked in through a new door and said "I am the last days of summer" and she reached for the girl's hand but the girl couldn't hold on. She said "you are not strong enough" and the summer-girl walked out of the room. The next day she was back, and held on, and let go. This time she left at the girl's feet feathers filled with ink and paint made of berries and lead.
Because there wasn't canvas the girl took the paint in her hands and smeared it on her chin and neck and arms, her nerves smouldering at the toxin's touch. Once her skin was bright and golden and her hair the thick colour of liquorice, she took the inky feather in her hand and wr

God sighed. "Fine, send him in."
While He waited God cleared His desk of papers and blueprints; no need for outsiders to see His plans. Soon enough the door to His office opened and God stood, smiled, held out a hand towards one of the two visitor's chairs.

I never heard any stories saying he left the garden.
I went to find the tree, to see if it really was worth getting kicked out of paradise. I’d seen the Fountain of Youth, Atlantis, and the Holy Grail. This was the next big thing. It was the edge of the Earth and beyond. It was further than Davy Jones’ Locker. It was paradise.
Some people told me the Holy Grail and the Fountain of Youth were the same thing. If you drank from the Holy Grail, you wouldn’t die. If you drank from the Fountain of Youth, you wouldn’t die. But I’ve seen them before. The Holy Grail is an ugly brown wooden cup. The Fountain of Youth isn’t more than a pool of stale water in the middle of a cave in South America. Atlantis was less of a disappointment, but it wanted to remain hidden. So I ventured out for the Garden o

In the mid 21st Century, Johannesburg, South Africa, buildings had become the dominant sight to see. From small brick tenements to gleaming spires of glass and steel, there was little space to be found for parks and recreation areas. Those that did exist were filled with dozens of people, crammed tight together with little room to do much moving around. That is why two young boys were so astounded to stumble across an empty basketball court at the end of a dark, twisting alley.

Galaxy Garden, by Lone.Galaxy Garden, by Lone.3 years ago in Editorial More Like This
Ahh, electronic music. The possibilities of sound through manipulation is endless, creating emotions and states of mind solely on how human perceives it. Lovely idea, isn't it?
Enter Matt Cutler, a Nottingham music producer better known as Lone, and Galaxy Garden is his 5th LP. Now, Lone plays a style of footwork/juke music that is somewhat tropical and upbeat, despite being slathered in trance vibes. His music can be dropped into the 90's decade with his style of melody and tempo, with so much colorful work and amazing and shiny production, you'd think you were listening to a rainbow emanating from the reflection of a mirror. Bad comparison, but the music is such a great listen if you're a fan of footwork music.
The album shines heaviest when Cutler actually features other musicians on his music, namely Machinedrum, another outstanding footwork/juke producer, such as the track 'As a Child'. The synths are so dreamy with the mix of looped soothing guitar melodies and scrambling drum be

"I've been doing fine with them," I had said, a little surprised at the sudden suggestion. My sister had looked pointedly at the small patch of tulips that had previously encompassed the whole side yard. They were already dying, and the bulbs would have to be planted again soon. I had been planning an intense Internet search for that.
"I'd like to see you do better," I had muttered, but agreed nonetheless. I left the actual hiring to my sister, though.
Which led me to this moment, staring at a stranger on my doorstep and hoping rather desperately that there had been a mistake and he was not, in fact, the gardener my sister had hired.
"Can you… wait here, for a moment?" I asked the man. He nodded, clasping his dirt-encrusted gloves in one hand, and tugging at his ponytail with the other. I scurried inside.

Then everything was entirely still, and the voices which had been momentarily stifled began to babble and murmur from all sides.
