To all the stars covered in a blanket


the ones who fail to love their reflection because the world holds the mirror


hate disguised in indifference is testimony to your power


your star will blind them all

BOW TO ENTER HEAVEN

AND

OTHER STORIES

 

by

HADASSAH LOUIS

A collection of five stories explore the fragility of dreams. Prodding, oh so careful, just how far one must bend their back to catch a glimpse of heaven.

 

Bikuna has no womb – a woman with no belly button has no friends. [Zimbiro]

Chenda becomes Chanda – refugee hidden in plain sight. [Bow to Enter Heaven]

Umweo is a taloned god – judge of the world's sins. [Umweo's Talon]

Ntalwe feasts on flesh – gory dinners on a seabed of guilt.  [Secrets of the Sea]

Dane, king of rocks, longs for glittered valleys – fall he must, to know his place.[The Greyling's Quest]

 

All must bow to enter heaven. The short fiction stories have elements of fantasy and some draw on real life experiences.
