My Patience Wanes

About

Well over a year ago I wrote the following in one of my notebooks: "My patience wanes..."

I've been carrying those three words around in my head since that time, looking for "the right way" to use them.

I'm glad that my patience didn't wane.

This work is one of several Said the… flash fiction vignette pieces slated for release this year.

P.S. I think "My Patience Wanes" would be a really good name for a Metal band — something along the lines of Kamelot meets Symphony X meets Demon Hunter meets Nevermore meets the darker moments of Devin Townsend, with remixes by Celldweller.

Today's Tendril...

I'd rather be a snowflake in Heaven, than a snowball in Hell.

This TT popped into my head while looking at A Snowflake in Heaven (Revised) (blue-ish version).

About

Shortly after publishing the original version on 2011.05.20 (available here), I thought,

"I've got an extra pair of wings perched in my office, looking all sad and lonely, might as well put them to good use. And in the process, I'll stop the scattering of my papers every time they get restless and flap about my head!"

I'm sure this is a problem for many.

In the Moment (Spring 2011)

Waterfall clouds and dandelion forests.
      Immature green blankets the brown.
Billows of bubbles and zippity pests.
      Roses with thorns complete Nature's crown.

Written on 2011.04.30, at a park, and completely immersed in the moment.

Today's Tendril...

In the bag of tricks for "how to get it all done," there's nothing more useful, or more debilitating, than a to-do list.

Today's Tendril...

When God asks a question, do you answer?

Or, are you like a deer in headlights?

Today's Tendril...

Fireworks don't hold a candle to the light show of
   virgin snow on a moonlit night,
      fireflies at twilight,
         starry nights at midnight.
