Poetry: “Serenade for Spring”

A silly thing I wrote today, as the weather outside did not match the calendar on my wall and the holiday that is upon us.

There are some references to a certain owned property here. Hopefully they won’t mind.

Short story: “Fire and brimstone”

Short story: “Meeting Adjourned”
