New Longings/Snippets of Forever Never

  Forever Never/The Dawn of Illusion by Cheryl Pennington copyright 2014     I am trying to keep these excerpts short in an attempt to make them more easily read. I know everyone out there posting and blogging has their own writing agendas and I would love to have your feedback, comments and thoughts if you have time.  I really do appreciate the time it takes to go through our readers and visit blogging friends.  When a post is too lengthy, no matter how intriguing, it is often daunting to get all the way through.  So, here is my latest … Continue reading New Longings/Snippets of Forever Never

Writing Process Blog Hop/Tag!!!

    Writing Process Blog Hop!! First of all,  my apologies to my good friend A Long over at He tagged me in this exercise over a week ago; but I was tooling around Manuel Antonio/Quepos, Costa Rica and well, just having too much fun to sit in front of the PC until the sun set and by then I could only last long enough to post a few pics.  So, here I am trying to make amends and “spread the love”.

  Think Did you thinkbecause my will is strongI have no weaknesses? Did you thinkbecause you see no tearsI do not weep? Did you thinkbecause I do not kneel thatI do not pray? Did you thinkbecause I could not staythat I went willingly? Do you thinkbecause I do not speakI do not care? My will bends to my fate.My tears are shed in secret.My prayers are whispered in solitude.My steps away from you are labored.My words remain locked safely within my heart. Do you think the truth is easy?Don’t think.Look at me…..   and see. Cheryl KP2014       Continue reading Think/Poetry

A Dark Agenda/Forever Never/The Dawn of Illusion

Forever Never/The Dawn of Illusion by Cheryl Pennington copyright As M’na feels the pangs of loneliness, watching her beautiful gift growing into his own maturity, another also watches-and shares her loneliness, one that is mingled with his own.  This loneliness spawns an idea as his dark agenda morphs into a plan…. II What Darkness Wants…M’na was not the only one watching her son. There was another, one just as impressed, just as interested, but for completely different reasons and with a different agenda. Ar’tine was growing impatient waiting for the reincarnation of his beloved As’me. He had not been allowed … Continue reading A Dark Agenda/Forever Never/The Dawn of Illusion

A Mother Grows Lonely/ Forever Never/The Dawn of Illusion

  Forever Never/The Dawn of Illusion by Cheryl Pennington copyright My apologies for the lengthy departure from the story, but life has a way of throwing out those curves.  When we left the inhabitants of Dohman, M’na had given birth to Eternity’s hope of the soul’s completion in her son.  The ceremony of dedication was joined by those in the Eternal Realm, arriving in the forms of the creatures who inhabit M’na’s world.  All was well until Ar’tine arrived, stirring the protective emotions in the new mother of Dohman.  Before he left, wounded, a temporary truce had been made; but it did not stir the dark … Continue reading A Mother Grows Lonely/ Forever Never/The Dawn of Illusion

Letting Go

Letting Go I never thought, in pain and blue, I would be letting go of you. A whim, a dream, a fantasy, How easily you let go of me. I do not blame, how could you see that you were all the world to me? My secret treasure hidden deep within my soul, where longings sleep. I watched a feather wafting by. The breezes took it way up high. All too late I tried to grasp, but empty air was all I clasped. High it rose against the sky, twirling in one last goodbye. Where angels smile and heaven knows … Continue reading Letting Go
