. the time of year .

Posted on December 8, 2016 at 11:43pm 0 Comments

it is that time of year,

it comes and goes

in waves they say.

unannounced, this is the memory,

physical and mental,

if that word is is politically allowed

these days. in disorder,  subconcious,

tide rising , lifting scum .

once realised, that it is time

again, settle back in to the season.

be known that i cannot keep things alive,

i have no power, no means of identification.

there is a flower bed and a cow,

called margaret, how delightful.

the villagers are dressed

well for their situation,

their station.

the child drooped, pined,

no thought though

of horror and melancholia.

dressed in a plain clean way.

as are we all here.

the blue is a prim,

and pretty room, draped

with musical games

of chance,

for settling here.

 

harp strings

relay the vital net,

after shakespeare.

 

the visitors leave.

 

lord byron wrote

of hours of idleness;

the letters below,

and all the while

you have no love for me,

worrying over the empty barn.

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?
