Wandering mind,You leave reality behind.Imagination, take me,Where my heart longs to be,Not knowing what you’ll find,Carried by a wandering mind. Wandering mind,Creativity unbind,Hazy dreams become clear,The voices you fear,Can finally resign,Muted by a wandering mind, Wandering mind,No one will find,What only you know,Safe to grow,Safe to unwind,In my wandering mind.
On a late night in June, The man in the moon, Alone and so far, Made a wish upon a star, Dazzling high in the sky, Her beauty reflecting in his eye, He watched her each night, Dancing in the heavens bright, But this star was about to fall, Altough she seemed to have itContinue reading “The Man in the Moon”

Kelly, call a code!” Sydney jumped on top of the motionless body of Angela, feeling the crack of her ribs as she compressed into her sternum. The sweat was starting to drip down herContinue reading “Lost Soul”
I’m short and a little fat, But a joyous thing to behold, Maybe I’m not a lot to look at, But I have a story to be told. Just dust me off a bit, And give me a second look, I see a cozy place to sit, Your friend, a little brown book. @thejadewriter @jademaag

Even with all the podcastsout there, it seems everyone will touch base on the mystery/romance/thriller conventions, but fantasy and sci-fi seem to be skirted over, at least in my experience so far, which I believe isdue toContinue reading “Fantasy Genre Fundamentals”
How do you put a dragon to bed? When he won’t stop jumping Or bouncing, or rearing his head. How do you put his Jammies on? When he won’t stop wiggling Or wriggling, or dancing on the baron. How do you brush a dragon’s teeth? When he won’t stop biting, Or frying, the bristles youContinue reading “How do You Put a Dragon to Bed?”
A little meteorite fell out of the sky,The clouds watched him go and whistled goodbye,Before he hit the earth, he let out a cry,But landed in a pile of fresh cut rye,He hollered out, “Where on Earth am I?” “In a pile of Rye in the tail end of July,We saw you out of theContinue reading “A friend from the sky (fictional poem in free verse)”
Jogging in the wooded park on my normal trail, I’m running harder today, I have to. Maybe I can outrun this pain, or for a moment just forget it. Just focus on remembering to breath. I almost miss it. I stop and walk back, there, a new fork I’ve never noticed before. I look backContinue reading “The Birth of a New Beginning”
