The Other Gentleman – A Short Story

Your Unique Viewpoint

******** I read recently that the reason the why writers especially the new writer makes so little money (if any at all) is because writing is in itself not a rare commodity. That means many people can and do write. Let’s face it, it doesn’t require high start up costs, just a sheet of paperContinue reading “Your Unique Viewpoint”

An Invisible Woman

********** Warning: Contains adult content and language! Annette Baker hadn’t realized she was that kind of woman until she saw him bounding up the garden path.

Two Wise Men

In Celebration of Black History Month (UK) *** Two wise men were sitting on a park bench bickering about this and bickering that. After sometime the conversation grew more serious.

‘Will You Hold My Hand?’

Country Living

************* When life gets too much rushing here and then rushing there I can think of going back to that place.

The rise of pungent food odours mingle with the deathContinue reading “Country Living”

Man With The Coiled Beard

He sits on a chair as old as time itself – a throne? could be. Surveying the world through liquorice eyes blinking away the visions of being caught between this world and the next.

Husband, Where Art Thou?A Sonnet

Besieged with the same question Rain down the same answer ‘I don’t know’, yet a smile I still plaster, Hands wrung, oh this life’s predilection!
