Twittering Tales — Unchain Me

615B3E22-947F-40F0-8EAE-6AB4D61B0CE4You’ve got me chained to you like a dog chained to a tree. My movements restricted, my freedom removed. You watch me like a hawk, waiting for me to try to break free of my chains and run away. But I’ve got nowhere to go, no place to be, no one to see.

“An eggshell,” a scout said.

“I know that. Who left it?”

“The baby bird?”

Twittering Tales — The Dream Catcher


“What is that thing?” she asked.

“It’s a dream catcher. It protects you from bad dreams and nightmares. It catches all sorts of dreams and thoughts into its webs. The good ones pass through and gently slide down the feathers to comfort you. The bad ones are caught and destroyed.”
