Daggers zing past my head.
I sidestep to dodge the blades aimed to dig into my throat. I sprint toward my assailant with a wicked grin on my lips and the glowing eyes of my wolf. A line of throwing knives slice toward me, but I dive over the five blades and roll forward when I hit th... Read more of this blog post »

Revise the sensations to our deeds
Our hearts become silent painters
As our minds rumble and speak in tongue.

Through barmy winds and those that blow cold,
But now as life digs in and takes its toll
