Tanka 4While, like the wolf I'm alone
I sit in the woods
Hearing the wind and the birds
Fly away with ease
I am now chained to the earth
Tanka 3Like the dove spreading
Her wings into the sunset
As the morning glories close
I wish that someday
I too, could fly like the dove
Tanka 2Like a cattail in the stream
I shall bend and flow
With the water while I
Watch my fellow plants and reeds
Snap and float down the streambend
Tanka 1The moon is shining
Ever in her changing sphere
While down here on earth
The flowers wilt and peace fades
But the sky shall stay the same
The Island's Sleep: Part 2Right after Luna finished her paperwork, she grabbed her coat and set out to the scene of the murders, the rain coming down as if the heavens were weeping over the lives that have been taken away. Many ambulances were there already, taking away the injured and mourning. Police officers cut off the scene from civilians with yellow caution tape, the color standing out from the dull grey atmosphere. The water soaking her hair and clothes, she walked up to the scene, where a police officer in dark blue stopped her.
"Sorry miss, civilians aren't allowed any closer." She frowned slightly and pulled out a charm, a silver crescent moon and star. Flipping it over was a detailed cursive L on the back. This made the officer's eyes widen at his mistake. "M-Miss Baldock, I'm so sorry! I didn't realize it was you!"
She gave a small smile at the officer before pocketing the charm once again. "It's alright. May I come in, please?"
"Of course. My apologies once again, you didn't look any di
The Island's Sleep: Part 1BRRRRINGGG! BRRRRINGGG! The house filled with the sharp sound of the exclamation that the owner had a call. Looking up from a sketchbook she was drawing in, a pale brunette set her pencils and sketchbook down, standing up from her seat to answer. The phone kept exclaiming and screaming until she picked it up from its holster and put it to her ear.
"Hey Luna, it's Izzy!" An energetic voice answered. It was the voice of her friend, Izzy Anderson, otherwise known as Canberra of Australia. The brunette gave a small smile to the sound.
"Hey, Izzy. How are you?"
"I'm just fine! Hey, Matthias and I are gonna head to the amusement park today! You wanna come with us?"
"Ah... Izzy, I'd love to, I truly do... but I can't. I've got all this paperwork to do today, remember?"
"Oh... okay! Well, maybe another time?" Izzy replied, sounding a little bummed at her response.
"Yeah, another--" Her response was cut short as an intense pain ripped through her chest, m
Red Riding HoodI want to believe people so badly when they say they won’t bite
that I contemplate climbing into their smiling jaws
thinking that it might be better to be split in two than left hanging.
But always, I draw my red hood and flit back into the forest
running in the shadows of pathways, never stepping into clearings
because I’ve spent my whole life in the wilderness
and I still can’t tell the wolves from the woodsmen.
You Were Not An Aquarium BoySea-glass became your bones,
brine your blood, and seashells
melded into your skin.
You were not quite an ocean
when you said "This is your sign to love me."
My body was like a building;
tall, cold, almost unbreakable.
I was metallic and sharp,
towering over your waters.
I remember taking your hand in mine,
conch and coral shells scrubbing
my skyscraper wrists, and laughing
about how one day you would
submerge every last bit of me.
Your lips, riddled with argonauts,
found my cheek and I cringed
at the coarseness.
You asked if they bothered me
and I finally told you "I
think I love you."
