Where the Brook and the River Meet: The First Journey of Violet Bright There is a place far beyond the front door, just past a weathered gate, where Twilight dwells and whispered dreams patiently wait. At the edge of a bluff, near deep throated roar of the sea, there is a pathway, a door...

By the Light of Lost Stars Climb fast, quiet as a moon shadow at the rise of the Bleak Tide toes mutter secrets to the jagged stone stairs that go too high. And at the topmost plinth, sits a fox, mourning as his stars died. Deepest tints of the soul’s despair bleed into his pilled sock hide...

Star Socks Fox He began as a pair of socks, cobalt with gold stars, this fox. He was worn and washed, washed until he was well worn. Then one day, a hand sorted him into the feared donate box. From his home, his drawer, safe and warm, he was torn. Into a pile, a jumbled mess he was dumped...

Place at the End of the Stars There is a place where stars made a final stand here soft light lingers along the shadows’ verge, Dark at the End of the Stars, the long lost land. Mortal measurements here are void, time kept by Turtles in storied round, lightning cast sand, and the Karakul ewe...

Waterfall of the Fireflies All seas have a source, dew drop to fierce tide— So it is to the start of the Firefly tide, she goes, Small Violet Bright, upon the Harbinger rides. Jagged scars of fossilled stone, sundered land cedes to the cold blood of the riptide’s thrall, a place of start and...

Call the Name of the Harbinger Starbright blaze dances as it consumes acre upon acre of weathered woodland skies smeared by smoke, sulfur spume. Above it all, he lords in turreted heights, captive bound in the zephyr born maps of the cumulonimbus crowned in white. Harbinger, once cloven and...

Rueful Tyrannosaurus. Just a boy, an Ichabod sort with feet too big and a nose too short. Long legged and gangling he resembled a crane, one half grown with strawberry hair and bright amber eyes rich as the best port. Those eye how they gleamed, watched Phi's queer plan take shape, she was in...

Star Socks Fox on the Line Sun bright sheets billow, guises of battle standards, sails, and wings— among them, upon ripples of grass lay a book, open to page sixty-four, Where the Sidewalk Ends, the name of a place at the end of all things. Between the snap and bite of white, a fox from Alder...

Breach in the Nimbostratus Breakers The surface was perfect, no ripple to disturb or mar but beneath the unbreakable barrier it now appeared, knobbled and gnarled, enrobed in old barnacle scars One of the last and greatest beasts of old mariner lore, breached the nimbostratus breakers that...

Starfish in the Bathtub I see it, ponder about it this wonderful odd sight a twist of chrome, a star holding onto a buttress, a tenebrous light eater of a reaper’s coral head beached above an ocean clear, sharp as cut crystal and so warm, too warm to form a tropical sea… no blues to be found...

Even though it is not fair, we all have our favourites, be they pets or books. Love your favourite, but don't let it keep you from trying something new. (We have two dogs, Rue and Zwi and as unfair as it is Rue Dog is my favourite, even though he is noisy and occasionally pushy. To people who...

When life becomes overwhelming, find something that surrounds you, and takes the weight of your worries if only for a little while. (Growing up one of the few mediums I was completely at home in was water, the other was books, needless to say, I was tickled when I found this book. A total...
