A new tale of adventure and magic, told in verse. If you’re intrigued, the e-book version is currently available for free download, for a limited time.

Shadow Creatures

Through blackened mist
and sodden earth,
The crows above shall sing.
In tune with bones
And creaking lids-
Open, the coffins spring. Continue reading “Shadow Creatures”

Arden Lore

Three hundred years before
And still the forest heals its wounds,
From man-made, blazing fire
Sending elders to their tombs.

As humans storm through branches,
Weaving in-between the thorns.

Would set alight the darkening sky,

Within his heart, unbeknownst why,
That always hunted through the night.

He struggled with sleep,
His reason for hiding
To himself he’d keep.
As the days turned to weeks,
In the cellar he lay,
With nothing but rats
That shared with him their hay. Continue reading “Sanguine, my Brother”

Forbidden Fruit

And how am I supposed to know,
Of just how sweet this fruit should grow?
The very same that takes the lowest
Branch above my head.
The simple fact is, I should not.
For in this field where they be got,
The only thoughts permitted are
Those written but not read. Continue reading “Forbidden Fruit”

Retired Wizard

Through large arched windows
Mountains stroke clouds in the distance.
A magical presence
Filters through earth and sky.
Trees of the forest grow from spirits passed. Continue reading “Retired Wizard”

Guitar Man

As I walked the concrete path
Of Human presence aftermath –
A sound pulled me from reverie
And teased my ears a peak. Continue reading “Guitar Man”
