I took a trip to heaven
But only in my mind
I wanted to know what it's like
To leave all you love behind.
So I closed my eyes, and started to see
Just how beautiful heaven can be.

I could see the pearly gates of white
and behind them was the most radiant light.
I saw an angel as she was passing by
so incredibly beautiful that a tear fell from my eye.
Everyone looked perfect and with the angels they did sing
There are no earthly words to describe the beauty of their wings.

As I sat on a bench in the most incredible garden
I asked God for all of my sins to be pardoned
I took one last look at all of the beauty around
And when I opened my eyes, it was peace that I found.

I'll keep helping out as much as I can, and I hope to see the awesome prowess of other writers coming in and picturing it up and writing, too!

Hello fellow writers, I have only heard back from a few of you, but those of you I have heard from have provided me with much needed encouragement to press on.  Therefore, I have decided to continue publishing Picture Phiction posts but only on a bi-weekly basis from here forward.  Please tune in on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of every month for the new installments and please feel free to let me know if you would like to post an image in Picture Phiction.  I am always looking for new images to post, I am grateful for the help and encouraged by the willingness to participate. I look forward to hearing from all of you at some point.  Thank you all for supporting this group.  Make sure you check back in on July 10th for the 21st installment of Picture Phiction.  THANK YOU ALL.  RR

Hi girly...just writing to let you know that I do want the pictures to continue.  You have excellent taste, and they are wonderful inspiration for writing.  I'm sorry I haven't written in response in ages...I've been awfully busy.  Now that it's Summer, I'll do my best to participate more.  Thank you for making and keeping up such an awesome group!

Picture Phiction Photo #7.

Today is a good day to CRY.

Comment by Rheanna Raynes on February 11, 2013 at 10:29am


The old man sat quietly in the corner of the bar,
As the young men talked of exploits they had,
Of rivers they'd crossed and wells gone dry,
And good days fewer than bad.

They yipped and howled about their lives as cowboys on the range
And slapped each other on the back,
Out-telling one another with stories of their fame,
Of tall tales there was no lack.

The old man, tired of listening, rose to take his leave,
When one young brag eyed him as he passed,
He tipped his hat in salute for he knew what he had seen,
A legend in this time that would not last:

He rangered down in Texas, drove cattle to the north,
Wagon bossed a train across the Great Divide,
He brought law to the west, bucked all that nature gave,
And in the hearts of cowboys never died.

The young man raised his glass as he stood up from his chair,
"Here's to all who came before, may they live forever in our minds,
They're the best that ever were,
'Cause good cowboys are mighty hard to find."

Terror on the Trail
By Ron Wilson, Poet Lariat

It was cloudy `n dry, that hot day in July, 
As we drove cattle up the trail.
We were needin' rest, in our dogged quest,
To drive `em to the Kansas rail.

But in the western skies, where we turned our eyes,
A cloud bank started to build. 
Then the clouds turned dark. We saw lightning spark,
As the black clouds grew and filled.

The air was muggy. Hosses' eyes went buggy.
The cattle were restless and flighty. 
As the clouds drew near, the boss made it clear: 
He said, "This storm is gonna be mighty."

Then the sky turned green, like nothin' we'd seen. 
The air was so still it was eerie.
With nary a bicker, we pulled on our slickers, 
Even though we were bone-tired and weary.

Rain started a'fallin,' the cattle were bawlin,' 
And the clouds started whirlin' around. 
We heard a distant roar. Then the noise seemed to soar, 
Till it filled our ears with the sound.

To our terrified stare, from the devilish air,
A black rope dropped from the skies.
With a roar like a train, it plowed `cross the plain, 
Tossin' men, dirt and cattle like flies.

"It's a cyclone, boys," the boss yelled through the noise. 
"Now it's every man for hisself." 
My loyal horse spooked, despite my rebuke, 
As I rode him off a sidehill shelf.

The cattle stampeded, and ran unheeded, 
While brave men rode for their lives. 
Critters ran pell-mell in the face of this hell 
And a desperate race to survive.

Then the roar started fading and the sound started trading, 
The raindrops for the cyclone's roar. 
The rain came in torrents, to the riders' abhorrence, 
Like an ocean tide pounding a shore.

Then we saw the rain stop, with a few stray raindrops. 
Of a sudden, the sky was clear blue.

But the path of the storm, and the death it performed, 
Came fully into our view.

Dead cattle and a horse, along the storm's course, 
Gave the killer storm mute testimony. 
Two cowhands were dead, and forty-one head 
Of longhorns plus one cow-pony.

We grieved for our pards, and though it was hard, 
We buried `em there on the plain. 
Then I mounted my steed and resumed the deed 
Of gathering the herd that remain.

Now we've made Abilene, but the sights that I've seen
Will stay in my nightmares without fail. 
For I saw bodies fly, that hellish day in July,
When a cyclone hit out on the trail.

The Way of Water or What to Do with My Anger

My anger seethes. In theory, I know it is not healthy, yet I seek out what produces it. It’s an addiction. My anger came to a peak after watching the movie “Welcome to Sarajevo.” Critics claimed it was not accurate and that there are better movies…See More
