Royal Ground Coffee

in Stories

Sunlight filters in
As the clock reads eight.
Sounds of conversation and
The clicking of keys
Float out in the coffee scented air.

I sip and write
Waiting for calmness
And some insight
To start my day.



Raiders gather round
The fire of Jeeves
Repairing to fight again

The boss swings hard
Her damage is thrown
Fighting with trial and fall

She calls her force
Each comes to her side
We counter and turn the tide
This time – Progression

Memory Touchstones

May 20, 2013

Right now I’m unpacking (and sorting) some stuff that was packed away for a bit of construction.  I’ve been slowly going through the process and reached a point I had to stop because of the intensity of memory.  There are many things that provoke memories.  Scents can call up a scene as can certain tastes.  […]
