Calling up the Elements

Gentle Water, keeper of life and dreams,
I seek your intuitive powers and means.

Courageous, creative, and pure fire,
Your burning I seek and desire.

Element of air, wind, and telepathy,
I seek you now, your child of prophecy.

Motherly Earth, abounding with healing,
I humbly pray you send me a being.

Sorrow's Spell

Woman wounded, standing strong.

Love infinite, right or wrong.

Goals besotted by the guns,

Still he is the only one.

Can he see the sacrifice?

Can she believe it will suffice?

Separated by these plans,

Costly choosing of this man.

Division added, trying to gain,

Wisdom that can break this chain.

Constant vigilance around the two,

Standing ready to rejoice or rue.

Season's pass will show the truth,

When man will seek a goodly soothe.

A path and person should he seek,

To let no tear dare stain her cheek.

Woman troubled, woman's bane,

Pass this test and you shall gain.

No more wand'ring shall ensue,

For love is given, pure and true.

Upon opening the door, you see a furnished room with a fireplace on the far wall. In front of the fireplace are two wing-backed leather chairs. Their color is a rich dark chocolate. You approach the fire and there is a heavily pregnant woman with dark blonde hair sitting in the chair to your left. Her hands are folded over her enlarged belly and her eyes are closed with a peaceful smile on her face.

"Welcome to my little corner of the web," she says and smiles up at you. You notice her eyes are blue with a light splash of gray and a steel blue giving her irises a bold outline. "I suppose you are wondering why you are here."

She waves a hand to the chair on your right. "Please, have a seat and make yourself comfortable."

As you sit, she shifts into a more comfortable position. "You find yourself here through curiousity and unseen forces. I've asked the powers that be to find me people to critique my writing so that I may improve on these skills and begin to understand my audiences better.

"You see, I intend to put articles on this site. Some of my works will be articles I wrote for college courses, some current editorials on recent events, and some will be works of fiction that are in progress. I hope to gain useful feedback on all my writings. Such feedback I'm looking for is the type of audience they seem to be addressing, grammatical inaccuracies, and personal response."

She turns to look at you with a hopeful smile. "Does this sound like an interesting adventure you would like to participate in?"
