A classy lady.

He slipped a rose in her hand.

She clasped it firmly,

Danced across background,

Painting various rose hues

Beyond dying sky.

Our Day of Passing FREE on Amazon

Our Day of Passing: An Anthology of Short Stories, Poems, and Essays

FREE on Amazon Kindle, from February 19th – 23rd, 2016

Our Day of Passing – An Anthology of Short Stories, Poems and Essays

Do you have a macabre fascination with death and the afterlife?

If so, then this anthology is definitely for you. While some see the subject of death as too morbid to contemplate, others such as the skilled writers that have contributed to this anthology, view it as the perfect subject to stimulate creative thinking. Much like ‘love’ and ‘war’, the topic of death has the ability to draw out some of the most thought-provoking pieces ever to fill a blank sheet of paper.

Our Day of Passing is formed from an eclectic and diverse mix of short stories, poems, fictions and essays. Contributions have been assembled from over 30 talented writers across the globe, each with their own fascinating interpretation of an event that comes to us all…eventually.

Written by Ingrid Hall, Franco Esposito, Dennis Higgins, Virginia Wright, Candida Spillard, Valeri Beers, Dada Vedaprajinananda, Strider Marcus Jones, Adam E. Morrison, Allyson Lima, D. B. Mauldin, David A. Slater, David King, Dee Thompson, Donald Illich, Edward Meiman, Eileen Hugo, Emily Olson, Joan McNerney, J.S. Little, Kin Asdi, Madison Meadows, Malobi Sinha, Marianne Szlyk, Mark Aspa, Mark David McClure, Megan Caito, Michael Brookes, Michael Burke, Pijush Kanti Deb, Prince Adewale Oreshade, Rafeeq O. McGiveron, Robin Reiss, Sasha Kasoff, Stephanie Buosi, Talia Haven

Whether they resonate with your own circumstances or provide new wisdom or something to ponder over, each of these carefully selected pieces will undoubtedly unlock a series of emotions within you. The anthology has been written in such a way that it can either be devoured or dipped in and out of as your emotions dictate. Either way, you can expect to feel a greater sense of self and enlightenment from reading it.

Following is an excerpt from my short story, “Clairvoyant”:

“You haven’t been, you know, seeing anything have you?” Bruce asked.

“Katie stared at him, felt the dizziness, but pushed it back.

“It’s very strong and wants to come out, but I’ve kept it at bay so far,” Katie replied.

“Good. Keep it that way and I will try to hold it back, so it will not be so strong. I don’t want you to see until we are safely at your home.”

“Are you saying you would like a reading from me?”

Bruce looked uncomfortable. “Why don’t we just get out of here and walk and talk,” Bruce said as he waved the waiter over and paid for their meal.

RonovanWrites #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge #82 Star&Child

Child enigma sat,

All around her fairies danced

She looked at heaven

“Grandma, is it true?”

“Am I the star child?” she asked.

Falling star answered.

as it streaked downward

“You are the prophecy child,”

Falling star whispered.

Cheer & Call

Early Bird

Early in the morn

the birds cry with gaiety;

they gobble their worms.


Nature commands joy

and delight, glee, and gladness,

The heart seeks comfort.

Silence brings solace,

Lightheartedness, and Good Cheer

Signals silent day.

Squirrels and Rabbits

Run among the trees, yapping.

Bringing me delight.

Pine & Grief


Pine Essential Oil

contains properties that help

one overcome grief.

Olfactory glands

help the brain send out hormones;

Pine odor stops grief!


O’ lover, I pine

for days of love long ago.

You left me in grief.

I wear my despair,

like I wore my love for you.

O’ lover, I pine.
