Hadiss 1

Welcome! come on right in

close the door

grab a seat, get comfortable

For this new tale I tell

will make you shiver and quell

Entertaining as hell,

listen on then

Enjoy and pay attention

now, later, right to the end!

The hero, the protagonist

He is called “Hadiss”

An eternal being, an angel of sorts

dancing between heaven, earth and other dots!

A ruler he isn’t, a protector much more

sitting between the clouds on his throne

annointed with wings, far and wide

spread them he does when in full flight!

Beauty is his in all its forms

shining, dark skin, hard to deconstruct

They gave him a gift at his birth

The gods up above, from another universe

His gift was metals

Produce it from his being, his hands within

Liquid transforming into his desired weapon

Be it a whip, sword or spear with its edge sharpened!

From Poseidon, travel did he

in search of a land to call his,

and then he saw earth

a beautiful green blue orb

flew he right in, for this was his sort.

He sensed his fate lay here

as soon as he stepped a foot on earth’s layer

Emotions and sentiments came flooding in

he saw her hidden, deep in the shadows

His dream, his vision hailed him to her

Find her was his ultimate destiny and procure!

The way would not be easy

lined with death and things queasy

For his love, she belonged to “Eshom”

Another eternal soul from heaven

living on earth, bound to the dirt

corrupting humans with his wealth and sport

creating havoc, death and murder

For he sought and yearned for fresh blood to slaughter,

Adrenaline in his veins burned by desire

to kill, slice, avenge and despise.

Our story is long

encounters many will come

for Hadiss and Eshom, our antagonist!

Unfortunately find we amidst

this beautiful soul, a human girl, love kissed

Perla was her name, like a single pearl in a flame!

Come back next time

to hear the story of all time

of Hadiss our protector

and his search for his true love vector!

“Coffee & Bagels” Chapter 1

Being a ballet dancer had earned her a lot of flexibility and agility. Freya loved the feel of letting her instinct kick in, while listening to a new song, and just moving as if in one flow with the music. She tried becoming the music.

The entire process her mind went through was absolutely fascinating! Rhythm to her was just the connection of the vibrations between her and the chords.

Her mastered morning routine as soon as she awoke was to go for her jog at Central park, and on the way back, she would always stop at this adorable Coffee paradise, ‘Coffee & Bagels’, for her daily must-have breakfast ritual! That consisted of the biggest mug of coffee with her favourite extra-large portion of Rasberry cheesecake bagels!……

The Sapphire ring

Realisation hit me suddenly. It was ever since I started wearing the ring that I couldn’t sleep anymore! The ring that I so loved. At first sight, as soon as I laid my eyes on it; I knew it had to be mine. Now sitting pretty on my finger, sparkling even brighter than before. It was an antique, a stunning royal blue Kashmir sapphire ring, in a handmade platinum setting, adorned with diamonds and filigree. The detailed etching was something that I hadn’t seen before. It had cost me a small fortune, but it so called to me; I would pay whatever the old lady asked for it. The old lady who owned the corner store, warned me that I should choose another one as this one she said had a “JuJu” on it. I remember laughing when I heard her say that word, an adorable accent she had, Peruvian I guessed.

What set the deal for me was the price, an economical one for such a stunner! I had to go back and ask her about this “JuJu” she spoke about, because ever since I wore the ring, many sleepless nights later, I felt uneasy. I recall having many dreams, but now my dreams were turning into the category of nightmares! They were becoming more real and vivid. I wondered if maybe my lack of sleep was for fear of having these terrible nightmares.
