in a white room, blood on the pillow.

empty rooms sublime, look how

the light comes, how the red,


into warmth here, and above.

i go, meant to be recreation.

are so, yet food

for learning, sometimes

yearning ,third


driving home, remember the attitude,

of body leaning.

we look at the mountain passing,

and weep a while

this is the memory, the memory.

(title inspired by a friend)

then we went to work by bus,

early, cold, usually,

over months.

one condemned girls

with spots i did not see.

i only saw how kind he was to me.

with fish n’ chips, recommended by

the locals, tasted like dripping, lovely.

visited an old house,i talked about

my old house, we discovered cures

for ghastly things with diagrams, all

spelled with ‘f’ s.

over tea, we turned black and

white again.…

I haven't been on SheWrites much lately.  Been busy doing my own "thang" I suppose.  I'm curious as to what my SheWrites friends are up to, writing-wise, though.  Right now, I'm waiting to hear back from 2 agents who have requested my full manuscript of The Time Minders.  I'm still working on Kingdoms of Blood & Magic, but not as diligently as I should, since I've been querying/submitting for the TTM, doing scads of tutoring at my daughters' school and work for our church's youth group.  How about YOU?

And you.  Is it still damp in Wales?
