The Pale Knight

“Describe him to me”, my muse said with her lovely look of catlike curiosity. “Perhaps we can find out together, how you know him.” I just told her, that I recently met a guy, who looked so familiar to me, but I couldn’t tell why. I just mentioned this encounter in a side note, but…

Sparrow In Love

“So, what shall I do with all this love-fuelled energy?” The girl, that asked that question, was sitting right beside me on a bench in a lovely little pavilion inside the maze of the lost hearts. She leaned her head against my shoulder and repeated: “What shall I do?” It was my third time in…

A Rain Of Sundrops

I did not have the best of days, so getting into a hot bath in the evening, was quite a peak. I closed my eyes for just for a few seconds, but when I opened them again, a goddess was sitting on the edge of the bathtub, asking: “This is all you have for a…

“Happy 5.000 words!” I flinched in shock. It was early in the morning and I hadn’t suspected that there would be a person in my cabinet, as I was opening it. It was my beautiful muse standing there in a world that didn’t look like my usual cabinet at all. There was a narrow path…

I am sure there was some muse-magic involved (divine this time) to make this encounter happening, because the timing was astonishing. After I had received…

The magic of empathy

My first attempt to answer this question was: “Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeer”. It actually went on a bit longer: “Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeerrrrrrrrrr”. And even longer than that, but who has time for that? “Don’t get blocked”, my new muse softly said. “Just think back from this moment and I will watch your memory.” Wow, now that is solid magic, I…

The first question

“Magic?” All my fears stormed back in a sudden rush. I could feel my face turn pale as a fresh mozzarella-ball. “I can do no magic”, I whispered. “I am just a normal mortal person. And I am clumsy as well. I could not learn a slide of hand trick, if I practised it for…
