In The Way

Old Lady Henderson was the widow of a World War II hero.

Her house, with uneven pine floors, built in 1790, belonged to a famous Civil War historian.

Abraham Lincoln spent several evenings with the Custuses here strategizing possible outcomes.

The stone fireplace shows exquisite handiwork.

A tunnel leads to the nearby park, once a dense forest.

“Get rid of it,” says Morgan Baum.

Old Lady Henderson refuses to let it be torn down: so much historical value!

At the end of Morgan Baum’s day, the only thing left standing is an old stone fireplace and a tunnel.

“Commence construction.”

Stalker #amwriting #novembernotes

For November Notes, Possession by Sarah McLachlan.

 

Stalker

Steal my hand

runaway

with me

hear symphonies

cacophony

I am everything

don’t discard

me

you’re my life

my blood pulsing

you’re my obsession

my possession

hear my confession

you see me

as the darkness

I’m your savior

who understands

you

I do

Opposites #amwriting #novembernotes

Written for November Notes, Day 1 (ha! catch up in full force), The Night We Met by Lord Huron.

 

Opposites

We knew each other in daylight, but night was where we came alive. Hands and fingers and lips devouring, rhapsodizing some mystical force deep in the earth’s belly, deep in my belly. I hear the magic bass thumping through my heart, resuscitation, and long for one more night with you, but stark day pervades, like a killing virus, invades.

Lightning Fireflies #amwriting #novembernotes

Written for November Notes, Words as Weapons by Birdy. I thought of redirection. I am also offering this for dVerse open link.

 

Lightning Fireflies

Pathetic to consider the energy you expend to injure

how all of those atoms redirected, momentum amassed

could be lightning fireflies portending delight.
