Short Story

Only the brave will walk in the darkness of a dense forest, and will come out unscathed.


Sun says goodnight.
Darkness says hello.
The moon smiles at us.

Sitting in Solitude

For many years
I have dug in the ground,
Seeking the blue skies
Time after time
Gaining only obstructions
In my heart one night
In the midst of the darkness
I kicked up a piece of tile.
Just letting go
I realized the already empty bones
Are struck into bits.
