Black Rose

Short Story

Black Rose –  You dare remind me of him – too charming to befriend!  Without notice he would fly in from Copenhagen to Frankfurt to dine with me.  This happened many moons ago.  Our rendezvous were surreal, always platonic.  Then one day we met among friends when he introduced me to his wife.  The enigma revealed – his handsomeness turned hallow and I vanished  with a smile!

Her saga continues…Short Story

November 19, 2018

The brisk wind whispers – Now, now Zaza, it’s time to immerse yourself in a deeper patience.  The heavy cast removed and replaced with another draws a longing to get on with life.  The holidays beckon festivities but she can’t even drive, go shopping, bake and wrap gifts…but she can still write from the heart – Yea!

Okay, wise grasshopper, I hear you.  Must let go of past traditions and see what this season sprinkles.  This is really living the perfection of imperfections, being lovingly cared for in ‘everything.’  Surrendering to grace sends arrows of joy in her soul;  her life flashes vivid memories.  So marvelous has her life been thus far.  Today is her son’s birthday.  He’s her handsome, talented man of grit.  What more does she need?  Nothing.

So what will be her next sequel???
