Leaf Piles in the Wind

Scattered all over
Thoughts flutter and disappear:
Leaf piles in the wind

6 Word Short Story in a Play: Bon Appetit

SHARON: Dad! Is something burning?

DAD: Dinner’s ready!

6 Word Short Story: Catastrophe

“Mom, come quick! The internet’s down!”

A Seat at the Bar

A moment of peace,
Sweetened by cold drinks
And decadent dishes –
A solitary bubble
In the bustling chaos
And excited crowds –
A gilded throne,
Metaphorically speaking:
The royal treatment
Without the toll.

6 Word Short Story: Poorly Thought-Out Request

           “Here. Taste this.”
           “With this cold?!”

Goddess of Air

Like a goddess freed
The air casts off the magma
And dances higher

Exhaustion Drags Downward

Exhaustion drags downward
Like a soaked cloak –
No, a sturdy shield:
Heavy enough to dispel attacks,
Simultaneously trapping
The inexperienced.

As the River Races

Millions race as one,
Merging – separate yet not:
Living, breathing speed


Cold eyes, glassy and staring,
Slide slowly across,
Like a security camera,
Emotionless and remote.
They stop with chilling abruptness
Like a gasp, never heard,
A beam that freezes you in place.
The frayed lace stirs slowly
As the head follows.
Target acquired.

The Unwritten

Indistinct shadows,
Fading into the background:
The ashes of words
