In each chamber there is a world
like chapters in a book
each has its own identity that swirls
In each chamber there is a life
like a nursery of chicks
readying for their first flight
In each chamber there is a compass
a spiral direction
the deep’s nautical corpus
embrace the Nautilus shell
imagine the worlds and stories
that it has to tell

Today is C!!!
This year for A to Z challenge, I am using the Nautilus as my inspiration all month. The shell has many chambers (at least enough to fit all the letters.) You will find poetry, You will find some dark stuff (as I am attempting to branch into the horror genre), You will also see a smattering of short stories or prose (some with children in mind) others as lessons that we can all learn from. I look forward to meeting you and getting to know some talented writers over this month long writing journey. Please check over at the A to Z challenge and see what they are up to; they are a fine bunch of folks.
