. seeds .

have you collected seeds

of many years, packed,

labelled, dated.

have you died, and left

the table unprepared.

i have them now in boxes,

a gift, from those who love.

they will bring me work, joy,

an independent air, profound words,

from those who care.

the film continues, some of the old cast,

new actors oblige, ideas on lack

of addictive ways. simple days without


singing under breath, counting,

unpacking boxes, this is the lead.

hints are posted, and may you

believe them graciously. for

many times will you be tested.

there were substitles, out of

focus, we could not read the

other language.

it is a different sort of tired,

hard to expain.


did i walk miles, yes.


that was invigorating. did i

clean the house, yes.


that was satisfying.


did i sit quietly thinking,

then place a few

things together. yes.


that was exhausting.

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?
