Who Is He? by Trey Horton

We See the Giant by Darius Culp

The sky is moving. Feeling the wind is soothing. Hearing the sea gulls are coy, enhances our walk of joy We see the giant.

Amore’s Deception by Krystal Hall

The thief of my heart since day one of our encounter, So bound together we are, like plumage to a bird. Any outsider would insist that we are in love, Though appearances can be quite deceiving.
