Re-encounterDawn was breaking, pink sunlight sneaking in trough narrow slits in the tent, like spears of light, waking her up as they tickled her eye-lids. Out there the sounds of the day had begun, horses were neighing, dogs barked and people walked to and from, talked, the rattling and clinking of their arms and the creaking of leather, heavy-shoed feet crunching against the gravel. There were also the smells, scents of newly baked bread mixed with the less pleasant reek of garbage and dirty dog.Re-encounter1 year ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Yawning, Penthesileia crawled out of the sleeping bag, swung her legs down on the cold and clammy, trampled ground and stood. Quickly she made it over to the commode, poured ice-cold water in the sink and splashed it in her face. For a moment she missed Hephaestos' plumbing, then she reminded herself, she was a warrior, she shouldn't spoil herself with such commodities. Besides, being here in the New Country by the river of Tiber, where things were really happening, was so much fun. Never a day like the

I Wish I Could Build a SnowmanAnna?I Wish I Could Build a Snowman1 year ago in General Fiction More Like This
Yes, I'd love to build a snowman!
But I can't just go and play
I cannot see you anymore
Can't come out the door
I've had to hide away
You'll always be my buddy
But I can't be yours
If only I could tell you why
No, I cannot build a snowman
Though I'd love to build a snowman
No, I cannot build a snowman
See the ice upon the walls?
I agree that company is overdue
But I can't play with you
There's snow here in my palm
It sure does get lonely
In this empty room
Just watching my powers seep through...
Yes, I know you're out there
They know exactly where I've been
You've got courage
And I know you do
I wish I could be there for you
But I cannot let you in
I'm no more than a danger
And it's just me and you
I don't know what we're gonna do
Oh how I'd love to build a snowman...

Meredith had known something was wrong, that he was distracted, which was why she had sent him home.
"You aren't focused; you are no use to me with your head in the clouds." She had scolded. Her voice somewhat harsh as she was preoccupied with Hawke's companions, they were both fully aware that the Champion traveled with apostate mages, and Meredith was irritated by their antics.

Lost SoulI have visions, I have dreamsLost Soul6 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
I have hopeful memories
Where once was laughter, now is silence
A disaster full of violence
Where once was life, now is death
My soul taken by theft
There was sunshine, there was moonlight
Now dull stars among the dark night
Where was love, now is hate
I was forced upon by fate
I was folly and despised
Now am watchful among wise
There the ocean meets the sand
There is beauty among the land
In the mountains, in the trees
There I long to be free
I am living, yet I am dead
From my body my soul has fled
I am lost, will not be found
To this earth I am bound
Time to me is unknown
Yet, only time knows where Im going
The WeaverSome claim to see her in the woodsThe Weaver5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
A slender figure cloaked and hooded.
She stands before a well of time,
And peers into the liquid's spiral.
Through the clear mirror she weaves
A tangled web of mystic dreams.
Reflections of the world appear;
Old histories and present fears.
Her weaving takes her to foreign realms
Beyond the thought of mortal souls.
Far beyond any magic gate,
Seeking for a glint of fate.
The eye with which she watches far,
Can peek into one's distant past.
None can tell what next she'll see,
Only she can glimpse what may come to be.
Her gift brings her many visions,
Some nurtured and others hindered.
She often fears what she may glimpse,
For she cannot control her gift.
She chants as she treads among the trees -
"What is to come, will come to be.
Your life is mapped out at your feet.
Just walk the road, just take the leap."

Between Heaven and HellEveryone has a story to tellBetween Heaven and Hell2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The time and place the falls from grace.
We all walk at our own pace
forever attempting to win the illusionary race.
So I took the time, to sit and rewind....
granted pause to the cause, reflections of the mind.
Years upon years slowly drifted on by...
Journeys left behind slumbering alongside the road of unknown,
collecting dirt and debris, anxiously awaiting to be set free,
but could not flee...no one to save me and turn the key.
Everything has a time and a place within the enchanted space.
A story to tell of heaven and hell...
Realise this upon states of bliss,
In the beginning we all fell--in the end we all shall fall.
Can no longer ignore the ancient call.
Religion's Dirty Dozen...Religion’s Dirty Dozen—12 Really Bad Religious Ideas That Have Made the World WorseReligion's Dirty Dozen...1 week ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
Posted on January 20, 2015 by Valerie Tarico
Some of humanity’s technological innovations are things we would have been better off without: the medieval rack, the atomic bomb and powdered lead potions come to mind. Religions tend to invent ideas or concepts rather than technologies, but like every other creative human enterprise, they produce some really bad ones along with the good.
My website, Wisdom Commons, highlights some of humanity’s best moral and spiritual concepts, our shared moral core. Here, by way of contrast, are some of the worst. These twelve dubious concepts promote conflict, cruelty, suffering and death rather than love and peace. To paraphrase Christopher Hitchens, they belong in the dustbin of history just as soon as we can get them there.
