Murder in Galveston
Fill out contact information
Contest ends midnight January 25, 2018
Liz and Garret Adams sailed to Galveston, Texas to celebrate their nephew’s college graduation. Tragedy shattered their joy when Celeste Rogers’ body was found on the beach a few hours before the ceremony. David Devlin, their nephew and the victim’s live-in boyfriend was suspect number one. Suffering from amnesia, he was unable to provide an alibi. Torn between head and heart, Liz struggled for answers. Her psychic gift failed when she needed it most, to save the young man who was like a son. Desperate to prove his innocence, she focused a guilty lens on all the players, including her sister, Jenny, David’s mother and the new man in her life.
Why does man divisive be
When all are God’s creations?
Image, likeness shared by all
Wrapped, unique, a gift to give.
Colors of a rainbow mixed
Each displaying human form
Like a field of flowers wild
Purpose, beauty, journey owned.
Ego drives the wedge between
Fear replaces love and trust
Drop the walls, extend a hand
Hate destroys, devours man
Choose the path to harmony
Live in peace with fellowman
Source descended, I am you.
Time shared, love exchanged
Bonding moments, reminiscing
Sibling rivalry, long forgotten
Roots run deep, forever loved
Darkest night, the tempest rages
Violent winds upon the shore
Mighty Oak and Willow bracing
Morning light reveals the score
Staunchly stood the Oak resisting
Any change from status quo
Willow swayed and rode the current
Bowing to the greater force
Steadfast Oak sustained much damage
Branches snapped that would not bend
Willow’s tired leaves discarded
Healthy limbs, a place for growth
Change occurs, how will you answer?
Fight to keep your comfort zone?
Ride the thermals to new heights?
Break or bend, your life, your choice.
Infinite wisdom, time and space
Concepts man cannot embrace
Spirits and guides, to you implore
Follow, trust with them explore
Faith in the vastness sight unseen
Purpose, path, what does it mean?
Miracles happen every day
Inward turn, you’ll find your way.
I walk the beach, our favored spot
Searching for my love.
Pink puffs on blue, sun bursting through
Hopes are riding high
Be this the day I see his face
Finding his way back
To hearth and home, his family
Awaiting safe return?
I see a man. He’s coming near
Bursting is my heart
The gait is wrong, the build not his
Smashed to smithereens
The gulls are screaming, “Silly girl.
Spirits walk with God.
You look for him, but cannot see.
Open up your mind.”
“A special date, a butterfly,
Feathers, pennies find
A rainbow stretched across the sky
Messages of love.”
