The best of them

I searched far and wide for the best of the best. I walked across deserts, and sailed across oceans. I flew through bright blue skies, and dark grey clouds with no end in sight. I searched Earth's centre, its edges, and all that was in between them. The answers were many. But, only one struck … Continue reading The best of them

Sun everlasting

Let me tell you of the lady that came visiting me the other night. It was a Saturday night. Life's daily task completed, all was still and calm in my mind as I laid down and waited for death's far removed cousin. I heard a soft knock. I looked up, and there she was at … Continue reading Sun everlasting

Bottled up

One hop, two hops, twirl A dainty form on life's stage. Cheers, boos, laughs or cries, Dainty moves with no remorse. Will she spend time on time past? Most certainly not! ❤Aweni Adams Image and poetry ©Aweni Adams 2019

Rodeo #3: Travel with a Twist Winners

So many talents on display here. I absolutely adore every story and I had to share. The competition was stiff.
Congratulations to Colleen on winning first place! I didn’t see the twist coming at all.

Carrot Ranch Literary Community

By Sherri Matthews

Well, we asked for travel stories with a twist, and we got ‘em.  Thank you so much to all who entered, 29 in all. You’ve taken us around the world (twice), to Rome and through most of Europe, to Morocco, Lima, on sun-drenched holidays including the Caribbean and Hawaii, up mountains, along the coast, to a Harry Potter conference in San Francisco, a monastery, Lake Michigan, Key West, Rock Springs and the weird and wonderful Garbled Creese. We’ve walked, ran and hiked, and travelled by car, cruise ship, plane, bus, motorhome, and broomstick.

The high quality and enjoyment of every story, however, did not make it easy for the judges.  I don’t like this part of the job! First, I verified every story’s word count and sadly had to eliminate 2, one just under, one just below 99 words. Then we narrowed it down with each of…
