probably french panels,

just to difuse the light,

shatter the dark with bows

and dots. hung long

to travel more.

we pretend we are

in a magazine or ladies’


moths become a problem,

scattering the floor with

deadness, a fragility,


they will be placed in a box

sometime, a suitable

one found.

there is a collection now,

the falling days.



. cold tea .

Posted on October 22, 2014 at 11:54pm 0 Comments

some things are inevitable, old tea

sips badly, after all the work is done.

stains the cup if left standing,

remember the hotel, 1964,

we used to scour them especially

round the handle, then the base.

we peeled the tomatoes, and waited

for our boyfriends on the high wall outside.

the whitehall hotel. bournemouth.

in a corner, she hopes

people will see her, talk to her.

do they understand the question,

can they spell her name?

she is not for sale really, though price

on application.

writing helps, no one will explain

the bandage, the blood and the book.

some of us love her and have ordered

another measuring stick.

they moved her, you know, from the trolly

to a plinth .not sure whether to be honored,

stayed still with glass, bandages

were bloodied.

a message came, choked on tears,

sobbing rose. that one should

notice her.

mrs ciano received a message.

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?
