flight.   imagine it white with feathers,bird’s wings. it is an old room and as i change the bedi think of you. i regret the dust and crooked floor withfondness, then as i lay the clean sheetnot yet tucked, imagine you laying yourbroken body. think on this. sbm. See More

yes.it seems to be stopping now.

 

it is lifting.       it has been raining

a while you know, in the bedroom,

bathroom and the cellar.

 

it was heavier outside, faster

than the slow drip of gloom.

 

sheltered here, we weave and dream

a summer palace, and silas

marner.

we talked to him at his gate,

asked him how he was.

 

he looked gently.

 

later he told me his

ears had been blasted regularly

at the quarry, so he is deaf.

 

now.

 

i told him where i was from ,

 

meanwhile the man at the factory

cleaned bins.

 

we used the scooter again.

they are serving teas and cake in the hall with bunting.

 

my interest is the bull that lives on the parkland. there.

 

i slows if no one is behind to look .         or stop a while

 

he seems to like leaning over watching the traffic, while

 

i fall in love.                                                  it is a pretty face.

 

up the road the hotel is closed down.                            …

just stand and watch the season change,

note the dew and separate ideas.

 

remember that you stand alone. are not

alone

from criticism and contradiction. medieval

music plays, the town smells as it should

now.

 

stand and watch the river sing, remember the day

wind hit water.

 

you were not alone, neither was the grave digger.

 

he waved yesterday.

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?
