one man is upside down,
the other man helps him.
these are the better days,
no one has weapons.

run from the full moon,

race while the sky turns red

and all is falling.


go to the shore, hide

while the world is at war,

and all is falling.


there is light on the

water, can you feel it

while all are falling?





About these…


days of brawn

Posted on May 2, 2016 at 10:41pm 0 Comments

market day one, it is twice a week,

thursday and saturday, much

the same each day, books

for a donation, queue for the butcher.

waiting, eye the faggots, ham and oxtail,

admire  pressed tongue, taste the salt on butter.

all addressed with green stuff

for decoration. the bread lady

will let you hold her goose eggs,

feel the weight of them, stroke the shell.

you do not need to buy them, you…


. empty shell .

an empty shell, i carried it carefully.


the bird had flown,

and while some are sad,

it is a new life and

we must move on.

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?
