Chance

Once, twice you risk it all. On thrice watch it fall. Whispers of eternity dashed in the wind. Sprinkled to the earth to bring an end. Wildly thrashed and opened wide some shut tight, others to bide. What creations shredded on the blades of time, that know no pain, love or fear. Whisps of nonchalant that brings memories so clear, once dear or perhaps now sodden with despair. Let all words lay bare upon the breeze as history is written as is pleased. Upon the knees of those that have bled, count the graves and know what is said. No tales of glory or defeat trace the lips of those departed as lonely tears chase the years lost. Turn the page and be aware, the next chapter may strip your soul of each chance and dice you roll.

Deception

As the world falls into chaos, how does one stand upon the edge of oblivion? In faith and tradition, or perhaps ambition and superstition. Plunged into the depths of the unknown. Wickedly deceitful strings are pulled, what illusion shall shatter that harbors the wool? Wonderous creations that lure and betray the mind’s eye of the flock. Tip toes and whispers I kid you not. The curtain is drawn to a close, the stage is set and most do not know for the pages were smeared. Puppeteers arise and cast the shadows that blind the fool. Follow not what calls to the temptations of ideologies that have formed cracks in the foundation of lies and corruption. Peel the layers back of the decaying mass spewing the poison of destitution. Not on fate’s command or the will of a deity. Reveal the origin and set yourself free.

Poem: Dragon Spell

Fantasy, myth, legend…whispered upon the wind, call it an old friend filled with stories of antiquity. Weaved like a cacoon, an old tune. Tickles the senses and just out of reach. Perhaps the secrets strike with the lightening from above and gather in the earth below. A dragon’s spell? One never knows what language they speak to memorize the world abound. Strange occurrence, ironic endeavors. Blame the logical, practical but perhaps look beyond the nose of society and see the mystery and unsolvable that lays before what is given, not taken.

Poem: Once Again

Once, twice, thrice….how many more times in pain? Tired of the game; up , down spun and twisted round like a tangled web of eternity. Stretched taunt like a piano string, ready to rebel. Take a new road even if its hell to bare. This avenue, perhaps forsaken or total bliss upon the soul. Ride the tide of evolutionary blunders and allow the thunder to rattle your bones like every earth’s stone that feels that heat. Numb it, bind it, strap it into the depths of existence. Wisps of Whispers to the soul that yearns to spiral out of control. Unrestricted, unrestrained a wild fire filled with desire and yearning just out of reach. Tickling, tantalizing; a fantasy never meant to be tasted. Perhaps a life wasted and skewed out of perception. Always choose and lose or gain and be blamed. Childish, empty, sweet nothings that fall on deaf ears. Choose or be chosen.

Poem: Celestial

Sit beneath the stars and gaze on what a wonderous maze lays above the heads of every living soul that dreads what the future may hold. Piece together the puzzles of centuries long forgot. How many ancestors gazed before our lot? Imaginations stretched far and wide, could they really conceive the possibilities what lay beyond such a small existence? We reach for the stars, beyond the moon, without exploring our great lagoons that lace the lands together as one. Celestial we call by name in wonderment and curiosity that spares not one questionable breath to those that neighbor nearby. So look upon and feel so small we are but a grain in the art of Rangoli that cries to be created with each tedious stroke that haunts the imprints of time.

Poem: Whispers of Fate

Twists and turns always lessons learned with fate abound. Wonders of magnitude and distress. Broken, breaking hearts that cause delusional visions within the soul. Always new paths and doors opening wide and others closing just as swift. What lies and truth return in every motion that ignites the passion to live? Each step harder forward as the wind cascades its influence across the destiny we all spiral down. Whispers of fate echo all around even if it is only silence heard to human existence. A weaving of thread that displays the journey of all that live.

Poem: Sun kissed

From earth to sky the blazing heat bids the icy plunder of winter to recede back into the depths of the breaths of creation. Bind not those who step upon soil and rock and harvest below. The sun splays the rays of existence into glorious creation and to kiss the surface of all who slumber upon the marble known as home. What delicate balance weaved into oblivion that not all are welcome to. A circle, a web, of energies and magnitude that blend like the shades of an artist’s canvas that tells of stories not quite known to any human or beast. Sun kissed , sun blessed what wonders never cease for all that has been given and taken in vein.

Topic : Kindle Vella

So if you haven’t heard of kindle vella, it is a new platform that Amazon has come up with for authors/readers. It released earlier this week for readers and authors could post on it for last couple months. It is literally serialized writing, so authors post chapter by chapter. First three chapters are free and then you basically buy tokens to read the rest of the chapters.

I am an author on the site, I have three stories started on kindle vella. It seems to be a fairly easy concept for authors and readers. Readers just have to go to the kindle vella site and search keywords like fantasy to find books more to their liking. Authors can post at their leisure over all and can even turn every ten chapters into a paperback or eReader book. As of yet I am not getting any hits on my stories but it is early in the game. If you are looking for a way to publish pieces of a book and maybe make a little side money this is it. It is like a wattpad in some sense, but I am sure Amazon has just pretty much tossed the concept against the wall to see if it sticks.

We won’t really know the outcome and if this platform is long term for a few months depending how popular it gets. I will likely update about this in a couple months just to let other authors know how it is going, and how one sided getting noticed is on this platform. If you are curious about my stories on there just look for N.K. Sterling. Well thanks for reading hope everyone is doing well, keep being creative everyone. Take care.
