ONE, TWO, THREE, four, five, six. The weekly six is here once more, this time serving up a slightly more poetic vibe with the expected horror element still lurking. Have a gander:


They stood, yet simultaneously were falling.

Virtual hugs, from them. No electric.

They bled sand; Time and life.

Light under door, broken by shadow.

Skulls decorated the beach like pebbles…

13 hour operation. Personality still intact.

      3. The amount of time and effort required to write is not necessarily proportional to the number of words in a piece. πŸ™‚
