Tokyo-Yokohama

Almost time, praying for you, to live a whole and happy life, but if you must die, die well. I have seen the other side and it makes all the difference how you die. Die with love in your heart and it lifts your soul, like a helium balloon, straight to heaven. To die with love,…

The Code of Angels

Free Will is the first law. Without it all other laws become meaningless. There is a fine line between persuasion and coercion. That line may not be crossed. Unconditional love is the ultimate tool for mass salvation. Conditional love is a weapon of great destruction. Fear is the deadliest enemy, never let it guide you….

First Meeting

A Patina of death and suffering surrounded Demon Yang. The killer of  hundreds of thousands of souls, Ghostie Yin struggled to keep from falling at his feet in terror and madness at her first sight of him.   She took a moment to banish fear, opened her third eye and looked into his heart. The beauty…

GO!

All year I’ve been on Tenterhooks. This is my last chance to warn Tokyo-Yokohama. The doom I dreamt maybe but a month or two away. Yet it is hard to breathe much less speak, for my intended audience are the people whose deaths I have mourned many years now. All I want to do is…

Seeking Harmony

I haven’t written for so long. I am all torn up inside about the seeming inevitable creation of the Dakota Access Pipeline. Monday, on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day here in the US, another clash occurred. Don’t expect to find out much from national media, once again, they weren’t there. They all went home…

Protect the Protectors

The veterans who stand for standing rock are asked to bring a Panoply of protective gear: body armor, helmets, ear plugs and gas masks in case of attack by humans and hats, parkas, mittens, gloves, boots and socks to insulate from the cold. Today they arrive, tomorrow they protect the water protectors. I pray that this will…

Tree of Life

It felt strange to Construct this little bit of holiday decoration. I kept hearing a voice sarcastically say: I hope my dying won’t ruin your Christmas. Of course it will ruin the holidays. I replied. I am terrified for what may happen December Fifth. If anyone tries to remove the Indigenous People, the water protectors from their camp,…

Prophecy

Echo I hear the echo all the stronger as people argue yell and fight. The murmuring of myriad voices even in the still of night. I feel them wash over me granting bits of foresight. What good does it do? People are moving mountains. Others can’t see but I can feel it. The pushing of…

Why Do Bad Things Happen?

Sated The smell of blood was overpowering and intoxicating, it made her feel alive. Within the demon, Ghostie felt everything the demon, Wane did. First there had been the hollowness without end and the gritty scraping of forcing itself to open its eyes and feel the pain to know that it existed. It seemed to…

What Would Jonah Do?

Or To be crazy or normal? That was the question that Jonah struggled with (and Moses.) Recently the last piece fell into place. Since the summer of 2007,  I have been haunted by a dream in which I come upon the burial site of millions of people whose metropolis has been swallowed by the earth…

Welcome to My Jungle

Vegetal Chaos Where is my garden? It was so neat last spring. Now it looks like a game of hide and seek. Found you!

The Blue Demon

Primp Younger daughter Emani, never took the time to primp. Not that she could if she wanted to. Older sister Ada was always there, in front of the mirror, fixing her hair, adjusting her sari. Jeweled necklaces draped Ada’s perfect slender throat. Intricately woven strands of gold encircled her wrists and sparkling gemstone flowers dangled…
