  • Poetry – Master of Time

    Master of Time By: Maranda Russell Make the closed circuits and tinker with the channels. Embrace the metal of your own making as well as that of the Gods.

  • Poetry: Jasper

    Jasper By: Maranda Russell Stone formed from drops of Christ’s blood, the martyr’s gem from legends of old – jasper stained with red flecks, forever falling from the foot of the cross.

  • Poetry – Holy Warriors

    I must admit that I stole these 6 word story writing prompts from one of my favorite WordPress bloggers, Therapy Bits. I’m not sure where she gets these prompts, or if she makes them up herself, but I thought they looked like a lot of fun, so I started borrowing a few of them just […]

  • Poetry: Sleeping Poetic Genius

    Sleeping Poetic Genius By: Maranda Russell I wrote a poem in my sleep last night. The words, colors, and images now blur in my mind. I try to pin them down, only to have them wiggle away like a puppy desperate to escape a confining embrace. The poem was grand, of this I am sure. […]

  • Short Poetry – Doubt Lingers

    I love short poetry, it is actually my favorite kind of poetry. There is something magical about being able to express a truth, or paint a vivid image, with only a few words. So, when I woke up today with these few lines echoing in my head, I had to write them down and share: […]
