Sonata

A clock’s whisper, its pendulum swinging. A candle’s flame dancing, swaying. Sonata Pathétique. Each movement moving my soul, no more need I know. Your touch upon the keys to my heart beating. Fire burning deep, deeper, awaiting release. Waiting, anticipating … Continue reading

Night Editing

She was editing around encroaching sleep, shifting words on an alphabet sea. Dreams. Visions. Fantasy. The lone surviver in a shipwrecked story, tossing words overboard in allegory. Fogged. Caffeinated. Solitary. How long before her wavering gaze failed to linger? How … Continue reading

Fabric

Peace. Clock ticking. A stranger clears his throat. Cars pass by. A plane overhead. Clouds, wind-borne, flee twilights end. Incense. Evening tea. Candle casting shadows. The flame gives light, the gesture genuine, not fake. All woven, a fabric, stronger in … Continue reading

America Dystopia

Looking back, she should’ve wept sooner, should’ve recognized her heart’s truth, that it was the thugs and criminals in power who were enabling the poison. She should’ve known, should’ve understood, that when someone casually ignores death, they’ve no respect for … Continue reading

Time to Save Ourselves

Behind each “can’t” is the truth that is “won’t,” a power that answers to “don’t.” Leaders who don’t lead tell those in need, they shouldn’t, knowing what they could share they wouldn’t. Absolutely, positively, it’s time we stopped listening. It’s … Continue reading

She’d languished in emotional oppression. When would it end? It was a question she always asked. She’d fought the longing, and longed to fight. Then it happened… waking with memories not her own and too many questions. Touched by magic, … Continue reading

Climbing

She’d faltered, fallen, her soul pummeled, plundered, yet she remained, wounded, broken inside, but not ready to die within. Always climbing, ascending, her heart ragged, jagged, yet she continued on, haggard, because within was more than imagined. ©September 2014, June … Continue reading

Timing

  It’s a waste of time worrying about time running out. It’s true that time isn’t standing still, nor is time on our side, yet we make thinking about time a timeless activity. And all the while we still can’t … Continue reading

Nebulous Night

A mind alight, starlight’s eye, spinning axis, nebulous night. Science reality, captured fiction, thrusting skyward our imagination. Tales of “to be,” once a caution, are no longer science fiction. ©December 2017, June 2020 Christina Anne Hawthorne

Awakened Revelation

The clock ticking, seconds snickering telling her time was slipping away. Decisions, a dearth of opinions, trying to keep the nightmares at bay. Torment? Denials evident? She awoke in awakened revelation. Her troubling dreams weren’t what they seemed, they were … Continue reading
