Design flaw...

Post by Rhett Kahn » Mon Oct 20, 2014 2:16 am

I always said "Whenever one door closes, another door opens" but no one ever fixed it. And that is how my house got robbed.

Yes, the circle of life is so much more hummable when it's about a lion cub.

Comforting familiarity

Morning mists. Dew-dropped cobwebs. Quinces rotting on the old bench. It all reminded him of his own death, so long ago.

After much work, Joe realized time travel is not only possible, but inevitable.

I walk into the room to find dinner on the table
kids seated with Mom,

With the sharper knife I had almost gotten to the irritant in my hand when you crossed my vision.
Then it was in my head too.

Creaks from the ceiling moved in a distinct pattern to the stairs,
while my cats and I watched the wet stains grow darker.

my arms feel backwards from the elbows down, but I guess that's normal after leaning through the mirror at the fun house.

Hunter

Post by pondspider » Tue Oct 21, 2014 8:19 am

Below me, the hunting ground.
Wind in my face, I hang. Searching.
There. Movement.
Fast to the ground.
My young eat well.

Stepping out

Endless struggle for life. Tribe becomes smaller.
Many dry years. Once rich forest gone.
Leave ancient home. Survive.

He was jealous of his girlfriend, who never got sick. He was sure she'd outlive him. Then the Re:ELLE computer virus hit.
