One for Sorrow – Chapter 2

8:30pm, last night. “Where’s Nefer?”, Raul called from the living room. Eli was trying to put Maya and Dimpy to bed, which was proving to be a difficult task as the two of them refused to go to sleep. “I don’t want to sleep mamaaaa!”, Maya complained jumping up and down on the bed and […]

Exuberant Chaos

I watched as the flames reached the sky, dancing as it consumed the grand funeral pyre that housed the coffin that held the vessel that once held my grandmother. There was no wind, and the sun beat down on the quiet congregation. I stood there in the sweltering heat and felt every crackle and spark […]
