My written stories

The Emerald Isle

May’s 5th “green” post. Enjoy!

They say our people once roamed the land, free as anybody. 

That was ages ago. 

Today I can only dream of visiting my homeland.

I stare at pictures in books, the ancient wonders inspiring awe within me, the green of the landscape reflected back in the glass.

Next door, the hermit crab laughs.

“Do you really think they’ll let a snake into Ireland?”
