'how far along are we?' Asked a small voice in his cart.
'about a mile.' The farmer answers.
Oh no! a road block!

“Have you heard the army is coming?” The mouseman began to panic. He grabbed the woven grass hat on his head and squatted down, ready to sprint back to his cart and his family.
“No, have you?”
“I did spy a patrolmouse. He was headed for the perimeter. Had…Posted 4 years ago
The snow blew violently in my face and tried to lift the hood of my coat off my stocking capped head. The dog pulled on his leash and jogged to the nearest tree trunk, forcing his owner, me, to jog behind him. He lifted his leg and marked the base of the …Posted 4 years ago

I shouldn't try to listen. I shouldn't let it bother me. I can do things how I want, disregard, disregard th…Posted 4 years ago
I spun around in lazy, mostly elliptical, circles. Enough time had passed--years, decades?--that I couldn't remember being caught. Orbiting her was an honor, a duty, a pleasure, a pain. It was all I knew. I kept watch because I didn't have a choice. I was…Posted 4 years ago
Before I had known her
Before I could see
Before we had met
Before there were three
Before she had run
Before she could tell
All had been good
All had seemed swell
Clearly I saw it
Surely I could see
It covered her face
