I write short stories. I own surprisingly few pairs of shorts. I sometimes short circuit.
"Alana" sounds like "A lotta" = A lotta shorts.

Take the title however you like.

My Happy Poem

Happiness
was
on
me
and I recalled
the infrequency of writing out of joy.

How is it that happiness is such a weaker force than
anger
pain
regret
and
sorrow?


No matter now -
Fingertips to keys,
I prepared to pen this happy poem.
Here is what came out:













Later, I will try again, perhaps, to capture this elusive bird.
For now, I'll lay down deeply into Happiness, content with feelings instead of words.

About Me

My photo
I'm Lanii. I try to Be Good. It doesn't always work. "Call Me Lanii" is sort of about that - my inner and outer triumphs (what?) and struggles. "Alana Shorts" is sort of about that, too: I draw way too much inspiration from the crazy and strange events that actually happen to me and end up writing very little 'fiction'. I usually have my tongue quite thoroughly stuck in my cheek.
