This story was inspired by a writing prompt published under Chelsea Marie’s The Storyteller’s Vault Poetry Writing Prompts Challenge. It is also a poetic tribute to my dear friend and soul sista Fisiwe Zwana who facilities the Sunrise Scribe weekly writing group every Tuesday and Friday mornings at 7:15 am.


from noir


as pens bleed life

every week inside

Zoom cafes before dawn

where writers welcome wonder

creativity percolates

between literary libations

that honor self, ancestors, and Spirit.
