Ever wonder how it would feel like to have your third eye open?

Thank you Sarah Ann!

Thank you, Sarah Ann for sharing news about 100 Nightmares on your blog! 🙂

Read her post here

For those of you who are not acquainted with Sarah Ann Hall, she is a wonderful writer. She writes anything from romantic stories to dark fiction. Her works have been published in several places and like me, she enjoys participating in writing challenges. Visit her blog to read some of her flash fiction and haibun.

Sarah Ann also dabbles in several forms of art such as designing jewelry and painting. Watch out because this talented lady has a project coming up—a short story collection illustrated by artist Janice Hume.

I’m really excited about this book. If there’s one thing better than a compilation of well-written stories, it’s a compilation of well-written stories AND beautiful illustrations. 🙂

I would also like to thank everyone who re-blogged/ shared my post about the release of 100 Nightmares and also those who purchased the book. 🙂 Remember, I want need your reviews!! ❤

仏ねむる
まんげつのよるに
ちょうがかえる

Buddha nemuru
Mangetsu no yoru ni
Chou ga kaeru

trans. Sleeping Buddha
Under a full moon
Butterflies come home

The sleeping Buddha
Motionless yet soaring high
Like the spring full moon



Master ascended
Gold shackles ’round my ankles
I got left behind
