.breaking news.

oh i got it wrong, in truth the theory is right.barbaric: the concept on kindness.yet we learned about broken bones, bodies that seep blood with water. we studied the mosaics, good legs, good legs here.the voices rather quiet. we have had a life time of listening, yet not understanding let us go forth and compare alice to your god, as we have done in the past..yet know there is possibly nothing to fathom here.oh really.sbm.…See More

as christ the king.we came up the back way, from the avenue.she did not know of the place, she asked her friend.down in the lower room, we saw the empty food bank, their cases full of the names, the words in latin, heard all the questions. wondered at the glass in blue, honored in red.later, she entered with her father, processed, then got married.outside it was raining gently.sbm.…See More

. it is not belief .

it is a source of      inspiration,

and research. it is written,  yet

having writ. we use. imagination,

add a dose of suggestion, slightly

thinking this is fact we do not move



perhaps we should.

so moving on quickly we read the account

which is quite brief.

remember the voices.

know that caiaphas was just a man.

it will continue, good men die.



. sticky eyes .

unpicked ready for the day.

tried to convey joy, delight at

some where back before, some where

so badly spelled. fell on deaf eyes,

ears that cannot see some things.

it is the middle of some where,

one hour’s parking, no photographs


he watched me through a window high,

had set the looms some thirty years.

he understood the wool, the thread,

the wonder of it all.

he said some people like utter rubbish.

as do…

research is kind, we have tried many colours.

we ate the cake, yet not wishing to appear
greedy left a crumb.

for a bird.

we wander through where the fence should be,
not minding the delay.

you see, we are lucky here, safe and dry,
we do really miss that little dog.

gone now.


.rewrite .

rewrite it, add the dots, delete the rhyme.

erase the last draft, start again,constantly.

wrap arte facts in paper. box for transportation.

lose the plot,scrap the lot, fear the repercussions


now there is a good word, if the space bar works.

do you wish you wrote longer stuff, important tomes,

well i do,


it is all ready now, i just need your instructions,

and i know you have asked.…

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?
