Way Stone #writephoto


The monolith stood grave

and silent

surveying his domain.

 

Once a proud beacon;

a symbol

for his people.

 

No longer.

 

But he is not

forgotten.

 

The songbirds

now sing

his praises

and the breezes

carry

sweet fragrances to him.

 

The rainclouds dance

and gently bath him

and the sun shines down

to wrap him

in warmth.

 

The Way Stone

will watch over this forest

until the songbirds

no longer sing.

I Believe In Heroes


I originally posted this in 2015 and I know I’m a little late for the 4th, but I felt that it was appropriate for our nation’s celebration of freedom. I hope you enjoy! 🙂

Penny Wilson Writes

This man was a mere mortal of flesh and blood.  The light I saw in his eyes was that of an honorable man.  The honor this man carried with pride, was that of rare and unimaginable beauty.

I knew he was a man, with weaknesses as men have.  But I saw what was inside.  He was a Nobleman of Old.  He saw the demons and beasts that few of us see.  He would give his life to slay them.

He thought his life was better served on the battlefield.

He relied on his instincts and his brethren in the heat of battle.

My hand touched his, one last time, as he turned his shining eyes away.  I knew he couldn’t stay.  He had paused on his quest just long enough to give me a glimpse of himself.  There were battles to be fought and dragons to slay.

Stars and Stripes


On the Birthday of this great nation, let’s not forget those that gave us the freedom to wave that beautiful flag.

As you hold your loved ones close watching the fireworks tonight, please remember the American Veteran.

These brave men and women have given up the joy of watching fireworks, or having a picnic, or seeing their children run through the sprinkler on a hot July day.

Day One of the NaNoWriMo Challenge


I know it’s only day one, but I’m pretty proud of myself.  My goal today was 2000 words.  I made it to 2335.  Woo hoo!

Now the challenge will be to keep up the momentum.  I feel wonderful about what I’ve written so far!  I’m having a blast watching the story unfold.

I know during the week I won’t have as much time as I do in the weekends, so I’m glad I got as far as I did today.

To all my cheerleaders, thank you as always, for your encouragement!  The community here on WordPress is wonderful at sharing and helping each other!

To my other NaNo writers, keep on keeping on!
