    Cressage (Christ's Oak) It's early Spring at

    Cressage. The days are warm and bright. There's blossom on the blackthorn: Wild flowers bloom, left and right. A white bridge stands majestic, astride the Severn's flow. Old pillboxes keep their vigil, still waiting for the foe. The trees and the grass are greening: There's a...

    Take My Hand

    And there within the iris of the blinking eye There's the clarity of truth hidden by the lie. And in the softest whispered words carried by the breeze There is the truth of my mind's forest, hidden by the trees And in the long lost memory of that long gone day The truth...

    The Iris And The Flame

    The streaming water coming out from the

    Here's a short story I wrote on my phone: Today

    I saw a women get shot on a ferry to England. The weather was stormy and no one had heard the shot due to the thunder. We were alone on the deck of the ship. He then pointed the gun at me. I was surprisingly calm, I felt no urge to fight or flight. I just continued to smoke my...
