About a Book: Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman

I’ve been meaning to write more about the books I’m reading. I used to do that a lot but then I fell into this pit where it’s been hard to find a book to enjoy. Hard to find time, the dedication or the enthusiasm. Never thought I’d say that. But I do stumble upon interesting…

The Women We Read

A long while ago I got one of these thoughtful presents from J who sometimes sees something in a store and immediately knows that I will love it and so he spontaneously buys it and brings it home without having any occasion to do so. This time it was a pocket book with a collection…

Silent Song and a Contribution Request

Silent Song Music by Kip Jankowski Words and Visuals by Eygló ♠︎ There is nothing I love more than finding new ways to be creative. When it clicks and something inside you just wants to keep doing just that, that’s a good feeling. And it doesn’t REALLY matter if it looks great or speaks to…

THE WALK – visual poetry

So yesterday I hit my head on the trunk of the car. You would probably not have noticed much but I have a little dint to prove it. And I have a cold, which for me and my inner ears usually means dizziness. I’m making excuses for myself, did you notice? And for this one…

The Joshua Tree: a short story

I’ve been working on not apologising for my writing and I’m not making excuses however I feel I should warn you about this one. It’s macabre and dark, this one. It’s darker than most of my pieces and I’m not ashamed to say that it was hard to edit due to that. Having said that there…

I hope you enjoy, Eygló…

It Happened In The Winter Darkness

We’re taking the first steps of this new year and so I’ve decided to do something a little different. I wrote a short story of about 6400 words. It’s a haunted house story, or a plane old ghost story, you decide. Due to its length I’ve decided to give you the option of downloading it in a…

January Words (a poem)

January is a heavy month, full of old thoughts and mindful winter darkness. Quiet hope sets in with new ideas but gets lost on its way to your consciousness and dies a sad death underneath a grey mattered sky. You whistle a new tune, (not the one from last year) but soon realise that you…

A few thoughts in the Winter Sun

This morning I found myself in a cemetery with my almost 7 year old daughter. We weren’t there for anything but taking pictures in the wonderful winter weather. She had her camera and I had mine. And we started to carelessly read the headstones. Some of the people there have been dead over a hundred…

RESET: a short story (3161 words)

Reset. What was I doing? There are doves outside the window. They’re white and they peck mechanically at the windowsill. I tumble out of bed and to the bathroom. My mirror image seems strange today. Beard stubble, dark hair and grey eyes, weren’t they green yesterday? Ah, who knows, who cares, right? Though there is…
