And Now for Something Completely Different

 Hey, everybody - I am going to stop doing the small stones.   Gasp! :O    However, This doesn't mean I'm going to completely going to stop my blog, I've just decided that I prefer writing fiction stories.   I will be posting my stories whenever I finish them.  It will probably be about one story every week or two (I think).

P.S Watch out, you'll have to do a lot of scrolling when you read them! Grin :D

A whole large bowl of watermelon
I don't feel too good any more.

Dad returns with large box.
He sets it up and we finally have a hammock.

Finishing a series
I shut the book and wonder.
"What now?"

Tuesday, July 19, 2011

Sorting and decluttering
seasonings and extracts.
"imitation chocolate extract???
... eewww."

Weird food.

Supper time.
How about ramen
"noodle lentil soup?"
someone asks.
"ummm... what?"

A Classic Story

If I have a good book
and I'm getting bored
I sit in a nook
and survey a  dragon's hoard,
a pirate's hook,
a hero's sword, 
or chase a crook,
but afterward
when I finish the book
I will, once again, be bored.

Nnyyeeew... Sploosh!

In my dream.
Two teams.
a water balloon fight.
I steal the enemies ammo.

gobble gobble ouch! gobble

Coming back for 
delicious seconds 
of ramen noodle soup.
Ow! My tongue!

Rattle rattle.
Kate, one of our many cats,
is trying to open the screen door.
I walk over and lock it.

Buuuzzzz... My pupils swirl to the the sound's source.
A honey bee is trying to get out the window.

My best friend is coming over today
for the first time ever.
It's going to be awesome!

Building a dam in the creek
with wood and rocks.
My mom hauls over a clump
of sod broken off by the current.
"say, that works great!"

4th of July! Fireworks! yaaaay!

...We don't have any fireworks? Aarrgh!

Duh Titles

One of dads old paintings from when he was young,
"What is it called? Rainbow Sunrise with Storm Cloud and Waterfall?
That's what it looks like." " Pretty much." he answers.

A Furry Sunrise

Sunrise, an enthusiastic people loving cat,
follows me around.
I stop walking and she rubs her furry body
against my bare legs.
The one year old feline shoves her snout
into my cupped hand.

Alien Fish

Sunset gives the clouds a pink outline.
Shapes appear wherever you look.
This one has the head of a fish and the body of a bird.
Wait... it doesn't have any legs.

One and a Half Inch Delight.

Scarlet scales with creamy dots in the middle.
A sweet savory swirl of flavor.
Juicy tender meats.
Your finger gets pink just by touching it.
This is a true strawberry.

Tuesday, June 28, 2011


4:49 in the afternoon
and I've barely done anything today.
Mostly I've just read a book.
About an inch to be precise.

Mr. Frog

Two days ago.
On a road trip. 
We stop at a restroom.
I wash my hands in the sink.
A frog pokes his head out of the overflow drain.

A Deceiving Berry

Out in the garden
I look around surveying my domain
of sprouts, weeds, worms,
and other garden life forms.
My gaze jerks to a standstill. 
I stare intently, 
I pounce on and pluck a deliciously red strawberry.
Turning it over, inspecting it,
 I find that it's white on one side.
Oh well I say and plop the tart berry in my mouth.

An Afternoon Stroll... or Not.

Walking with my family
down our long driveway
skipping along speedily.
Leap over a puddle.
Dash to the next one.
Screech to a halt -
this one is WAY too big.

The Mighty Jungle Cat

There is a mighty jungle cat,
prowling through tall grasses 
now he's dashing up a tree
giving it long gashes,
no that isn't quite the truth 
not that I mean to lie 
but it is just my brothers cat 
chasing a magpie.
