FF: Still. Waiting.

This week’s photo: © Rochelle Wisoff-Fields Every morning in spring, Evelyn kisses him goodbye – until the day a freak squall drags him away into the sea. Ten years go by. Evelyn sits by the window. Sensing her absence, her husband wakes, waiting for her, still. Turning away from the window with resignation thick as […]

FF: Open … Slowly

Open … Slowly She used to believe in love, in a white knight savior on a horse. Time came and stole her sweetness, tore off her aging petals, taught her better. Years went by. Mighty oaks rose and fell. The river changed its ancient course, drifting slowly closer- The rosebush’s trembling leaves awake. A single […]

Letter to God: Early Morning on Phone

Dearest God the Father, Okay it’s now getting to be a really annoying habit, this waking up in the wee hours with all these thoughts in my head. First, I love you. Next, I can hardly wait for this quarantine to end. For real. As in no more stay at home orders. No more masks. […]

Letter to God: Cryptic Much?

Hi again who or whatever you are, Yes, some days be like that. I’m mostly writing now because that last one ended on a cryptic note. To be about as clear as stained glass, I’m not talking about my relationship with your son anymore. Because, reasons. Also, I really didn’t – and still don’t know […]

Your hand quests for mine, quietly warm, seeking. I lean closer, twine my fingers in yours, thinking of Many waters coming together as one. On […]

Love

Wish I could be more like (you) Patient, kind. I’ve been hurt so many times it hurts. I’m not envious, not boastful, not proud. And what has that got me? While pious show-offs reign. I don’t delight in evil. I can say that much. One day the truth will come out I hope. There’s that […]

Home

Home A single light blazes in the distance guiding my way, the only thing visible through the haze. The past haunts each step: explosions, screams, decisions, truths too harsh to remember or forget. Twenty feet away now, feet crunching through snow, hair frosted by harsh winds. A door swings open to reveal a shadowed face. […]
