I Did Not Tell Them

I Did Not Tell Them

After their move to Cornwall, Nate thought that it was only natural for his wife to take up a new hobby. He wasn’t prepared for Polli to immerse herself in beekeeping with such determination. Maybe it was Mr Comb’s influence. Their new neighbour was a renowned beekeeper, who assumed the role of a mentor towards […]

Just Like One

Just Like One

“He was just like a bee, wasn’t he?” It was an arid, hot summer day, and a single man sat, alone, on the edge of a wooden porch, gazing out into a wide-open forest beyond him. His only company, besides the glass of water at his side, were the sounds of wildlife, echoing through the […]

Peony of His Heart

Peony of His Heart

Our regiment has been victorious on the banks of Tamagawa. I see before me the Jewel River rippling still with footsteps of fleeing enemies, cleansing already the remains of their bloody invasion. Our standards rise once again, and the sounds of gongs are being carried by the wild wind. Spring is on the way, and […]

Dust in the Wind

Dust in the Wind

The cherry blossoms bring in the tourists. Every March, eager visitors with heavy footprints and sparkling eyes join the swarms of bees around the sakura blossoms. They laugh under the shade of the flowers. They tread on winter’s forgotten remains. They take pictures and pictures, trying desperately to immortalize the moment. Then they fly away. […]

Star Starve

Star Starve

“The last only bought us a few moons,” comes the worried hum as they plait her hair. Pull the fine strands into neat, tidy ropes tucked over her shoulders and tied off with ribbon. Pluck the flyaways. “She’ll be worth more,” another assures. They smooth powder over wild freckles, turning her face pure and white […]

Another Wedding

Another Wedding

Her village had run out of eligible bachelors, so Jenny found a man in the neighboring town. “He won’t do,” friends and family predicted. The village matriarch Rose, however, insisted he should be given a chance. Jenny’s ill-fated wedding went ahead as planned. Rose sat in the front pew, as usual. Her stage whispers were […]

Secret With the Bees

Secret With the Bees

Tom resorted to tuck-float position in the middle of a backyard pool, fully clothed. He was attempting to hide from an army of bees hovering above the pool. They were hoping to introduce themselves. He was hoping for them to leave.  A couple of seconds for the partying bees felt like an eternity to him. […]

A Petulant Pixie

A Petulant Pixie

I was taking a turn around the walled gardens this morning, the deciduous forest with its fresh spring leaves the perfect backdrop to the scene. It was early June and warm, despite the early hour. As I passed a patch of peonies, in shades of palest pink with bright yellow stamens, dusky rose and blush […]

In the Footsteps of Matsuo Basho

In the Footsteps of Matsuo Basho

A mystery, whether my journey was a pilgrimage, coming of age or penance. 17th century Japan closed its borders to nurture its culture and likewise, I locked myself off to family, friends and the world in order to develop my mind. Regarding Matsuo Basho as an absent master, I was following in his footsteps. “Footsteps” […]

Achieving the Impossible

Achieving the Impossible

Placing the bouquet of pink peonies, her grandmother’s favourite flowers, beside the headstone, she was reminded of something her grandmother had once told her. “They symbolise good luck and prosperity.” But it was her grandmother’s words, on her eighteenth birthday, that had navigated her future. Stroking the honey bronze enamel body and wings, encrusted with […]
