Poem Translated...Listen to the caw. He calls in fear
for his mother, shouting: This is my voice
being put to rest. A whole. A breve.
lay your cupped hands around my waist, kiss
the bones no one cares to kiss? The scraped
elbow, the pinky. My tenor cleft chin.
you cannot hear me from the way you swing
the jib, catching this light breeze off Erie. Already

I love the mixture of music, sailing, and nature
in this piece. They are three things you wouldn't
think could work so well together, but they truly
compliment each other beautifully.

The Year of the BearI ignore the first prominent crackle in the underbrush to my left. It's most likely a squirrel, and I've seen plenty of those. One more does not interest me.
It's early August in northern New Jersey and it's hot enough to melt butter even in the leafy shade beneath the oaks at the edge of the pond. The heat makes me so lazy that I don't even want roll my head sideways on the battered plastic pool chair for a glance to the left. Anyway, Dracula is getting exciting. I ruffle the pages to go in my face, wishing that a real breeze would blow across the water.
An answering ruffle of leaves does not surprise me. If it's not a squirrel then it's probably my dog out patrolling her territory for new, alien smells. A crackle of brittle twigs from the same direction must be more squirrels, and a light slosh by the edge of the pond is just another trout belly-flopping as it gulps a bug off the surface. Finally, a quick succession of loud, crisp snaps--Chinese firecrackers in miniature--earns my at

The Piano DemonThe first time I saw her - really, really saw her, not just glanced at her as we tried our best to catch the back seats in the small university classrooms - she was at a piano. Maybe I'd never have really been able to notice her had it not been for that one, strange evening when destiny gently pushed me out of my awkward life and into hers.
If only children can be prodigies, then I wasn't one any longer. I'd lived through my glory years at school, where I'd gone off and won prizes for art and English, maths and physics, running circles around classmates and less talented professors. Eventually, when push came to shove and I had to figure out what I wanted to do with my life, I hid behind some more studying, delaying that dreadful moment when I'd have to prove that not only was I smart, but that I was also able to do something. I chose English and physics as majors, convinced I could do both easily enough. I wasn't right. I wasn't very wrong, either. There wasn't much of a personal life
"The Piano Demon" by TheOtherSarshi
A wonderfully scripted story which reaches
out and touches you in different ways as you go
through it, perhaps more than once. I know I
read it twice myself. Beautifully done.
