Music NightBato, Warrior of the Southern Water Tribe, was glad to be home in the South Pole. So much had changed since he had left to fight in the war; many new settlers from their sister tribe in the North had relocated to the South to help in the rebuilding and a chance at a new life; there was even a small encampment of Fire Nation, mostly traders and former soldiers who now worked the large cargo ships.Music Night2 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
Bato entered one of the many new buildings, the tavern, and was greeted by the welcome heat of the indoors. Looking around, Bato noticed something odd. The tavern was usually a lively place, but tonight only a handful of men populated the tables.

I love the Jägerkin's fiery self:
knowing their purpose, believing their truth
blessed with a monstery version of youth
outlasting mortals, surrounded by peers
having adventures for hundreds of years
living the moment, embracing the pain
convinced they've a right to be very vain.
In short, they're not me, although if I could
grow to be like them (in ways that are good,
generally free of mad potions and war),
people would notice and step aside, for
I'm already hands-down much more bizarre,
and, in my corner, I'd have the god Mars.
Love Song for a BookshelfWhen I woke up this morning,Love Song for a Bookshelf7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I saw the sun shining
Off your warm golden grains.
And I knew I must love you.
The books on you were so tempting,
Their knowledge sent my head spinning,
I crashed round the bend.
And I knew I would love you.
In my mind I caressed you
Brushing fingers along book spines
While diving deep into my own novel,
And I thought I loved you.
But oh! The betrayal!
I screamed just a little
As you fell at my feet.
And I knew I could no longer love you.

Enter CHORUS and PHOEBE into the cave of the Delphic Oracle. The only entrance and exit is a pair of doors upstage center. Phoebe sits center stage. She looks into a scrying bowl and appears distraught when she foresees the will of the Fates. After a few moments, she puts the bowl aside and reluctantly arranges the leaves that hold the words to her prophesies.
CHORUS. Woe to the Oracle,
beloved of Apollo,

Little Soldier BoyMusic teased the ears of those living in Ba Sing Se's crowded streets, as performers danced through the roads, leaving melody's stringing behind and before them; a sense of joy and freedom radiated in the air as the celebrations continued from dusk to dawn. It had only been four months since freedom had swept over the world at the Fire Lord's defeat. Four months since the Dragon of the West had retired and taken up residents in Ba Sing Se. Four months since his growing nephew had taken the thrown to lead the Fire Nation away from war.Little Soldier Boy1 month ago in Short Stories More Like This

TorchlightThe problem with wearing sunglasses all the time was that everything looked darker than it actually was. The lights were pretty much always on in the Strider household - which was more than could be said for the water - and this racked up a heck of a bill.

Though we weren't connected,
I really cared for you.
This was so unexpected.
I know I wasn't the best,
But I really cared.
Now that you left,
I'm pretty scared.
When I heard you lost your pups,
I nearly cried.
When I knew you weren't
I thought you died.
Though I can't prove that you didn't,
If you did, rest in peace.
I miss your fuzzy fur,
And barking at night.
You used to love the pond.
If you come back,
It will still be there,
Waiting for you.
When you caught that rabbit,
You gave us quite a scare.
I didn't know that you could hunt,
But I didn't care.

Dave acted as if he didn't see this. But he definitely felt it trickle down his neck, leaving a grey sheen on his skin, and absorb into his t-shirt. His shoulders were damp, and the clean, white fabric had dirtied. He barely looked at it though. He insisted on dying his hair all by himself - Bro wasn't allowed to help with that - and he did, late at night when no one was awake and the last of the tobacco in Dad's pipe was burnt out.
