I spied Springsteen’s ears peeking over the top of the cardboard box and I knew he was hunting trouble.

His patient stalking paid off as Winston, my English Bulldog, ambled past his hiding spot.

Springsteen sprung, pouncing on poor befuddled Winston, before streaking across the room to pause in the doorway, hoping for an encore.

What do you think of the fifth precept, “I undertake the training rule to abstain from fermented and distilled intoxicants which are the basis for heedlessness?” Samten asked as he leaned across the table.

Dakpa studied the coffee menu until Samten shifted restlessly in his chair.

“What did Ned have to say today?” I asked as Shelly let the screen door slam behind her.

The victim wrote the answers on the wall, numbers hiding their meaning in plain sight.

Queen Rolana Glenfir stopped, kneeling in the field, her body remained, but her consciousness was worlds away.

While she traveled, we shielded her from storms and pressed damp cloths to her lips, to keep her body alive until she returned.

City beaches bustle with pale sun seekers playing volleyball, dipping toes into the cool lake water and reveling in the summer breeze.

The roar of jet engines halts all activity, gazes lift skyward, they stand motionless, mimicking a deer in headlights.

Contrails spew patriotic colors, and a wing wag signals, today, there is nothing to fear.
