Hello all! I've been itching to write some short stories as of late, but I didn't want to add to it my other writing-intensive world Tides of Fate. As the title implies, my intention for this world is to create stories as told by the bards of old. (No, I haven't done much studying on exactly what their storytelling style is, but I have the general idea. ^_~ ) Without further adieu, sit back, relax, and enjoy whatever posts manage to come. ^_^

Beautiful Crimson

Quite simply put, I can’t get enough of the color crimson. I’m so obsessed with it that virtually nothing is quite right unless I see a little bit of it each day. But that’s perfectly acceptable, right? Everybody has a favorite c...

The $50 Dollar Sports Car

This is a story strait from my dad who's a former cop from Clinton.

There are several versions of this story, but we believe this may be the origins.

Back in the day in the day when people actually read news papers (possibly the year ‘84) in Clinton, Illinois, a police officer is reading the Classifieds of the Bloomington Illinois newspaper. He sees an add for a 1980 Porsche 911 for “50 dollars or best offer”. Thinking it’s a misprint he calls and finds the ad is correct. He goes up and checks out the car. He was a dayshift officer so he drove up about mid-afternoon and finds a Porsche 911 for $50. He writes the lady a check and tells her:

“Do you realize this car is worth $50,000”

The lady replies, “Oh yeah, sure.”

She tells the officer that her husband had run off with his secretary to the Bahamas and had gotten stuck. He called saying sell the Porsche and send the money.

Now we normally we wouldn’t believe this story, but when an officer who only makes about $19,000 a year in small city drives up to station in a 911 Porsche…weeeeeell.

Wildflower Poem

My mind worn down by earthly demands,
The soul contained within my breast collapsed.
The reasons were trivial, to be sure,
Things that otherwise carry naught to all time,
But enough to cause my resolve distress.

Healing seemed to be but a dream;
A fantasy which children devise in play.
Thankfully though, it blossomed just enough
To rejuvenate hope’s radiant calamity.

But this blossom needed to transform
Before the nothingness of fear returned.
To this, I am glad, the problem resolved,
For the next day filled me with awe.

All around me were temporary wonders
Grander than any planed works procure.
Beyond my mortal eyes stood majestically
Nature’s true essence of late spring.

Colors cared not where they stood,
Because for them arrangement is irrelevant.
Mixing hues together indiscriminately
Nature procured an endless tapestry.

The best of all rested outside the surface.
Allowing natural darkness to cover my eyes,
I took in the sweet aroma of the land,
Which in turn elated my dulled senses.

My mind restored to its true form,
I now resume the mighty march of life.
It is my goal to keep my head held high,
But just in case despair yearns for me again
I shall defy it by returning to my Eden.
