that feeling that

leonard wrote in medieval rhyme, a scrivener,

fond of the waltz, too.

i shall learn to. and wear a river’s disguise

water’s way.

 

shall we not see thee dancing?

 

i shall walk in the way and you may call us dancing

meandering thoughts, consequences, a pas de deux

many may see us dance, few will hear the music

. in and out of season.

. no apology here .

he knows stuff, facts,and        figures

while i am astounded.the sun  comes

out by the drawers.    open they show

me birds and insects.      did you know

they cross their fragile legs      and tie

with cotton threads.

did you know that we are the only         ones

who do not eat insects and that            there

are more species of beetles than              any

other creature. having lost the             sexton

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?
