The Accord

on

Beyond the Wall

on

I lie in bed, sleeping, yet awake.  I can see my dog staring at me from the mattress on the floor next to the TV stand.  She looks confused, wondering if something about me has changed.  As I look around the room, I notice it is the room itself,…

After the Frost

on

The soldier couldn’t believe his eyes as he watched the farmer sitting smack-dab in the middle of combat.  And of all things, smiling.  He sat cross-legged and calm, as fire engulfed his home, his farm, and everything he had spent his entire life building.

Abigail and the Agaric

on

 

Abigail bent down to take a closer look at the mushrooms growing on the fallen tree that lay in the middle of the park.
