Poetry: Winter

Winter

Snow covers the ground,
Crystalline facets
Glow in the light.

Stars twinkle above my eyes,
Glowing incandescently
Fading with the night.

Winter is here:
It’s grip firm and bold
Only to fade to Spring’s might.

A breath of cold air
And Spring awaits,
Waiting for the right.

Soothing forces continue
Through the air,
Leaving Winter without a fight.

Grant us this day
And all the time ahead,
As I look forward toward the sight.

Poetry: Anger and Fear

In the style of Petrarchan sonnet
Anger and Fear

Hello my friend, who speaks unwittingly,
A telling, nervous look, a peaking glance
To no one in particular. Happenstance,
It seems that I must do it forcefully.
I seek the writing facing me, not free
To leave my friend: I am truly askance.
For it must be a merry little dance.
But finally, as now, I seek your need.

When I see my soulโ€™s piercing, strident eye,
I see not the treachery of thy move
That brought my thoughtless flush of anger;
The brightness swallowing the spacious sky.
Itโ€™s coming down but slowly, like a dove,
By flashing not at you, but my Fear.

October Thoughts

Just realized how long it has been since I posted something. Oops. Thank you for everyone who liked my poetry. Makes me feel good. Now, if I can only get some parts of WordPress to work like it want it to, I’ll be fine. ๐Ÿ™‚

I will post another poem from my back collection sometime today or tomorrow. I’ve considered doing something for #NaNoWriMo but not sure how poetry and novels work. I’ve considered writing a novel, and I might, but I don’t know what I would write. Several of my friends are posting that they plan to write. It will be cool to see what they come up with.

Work is good (I work full time) and I’m considering starting a blog for legal technology. We’ll see. Once I’m back in the swing of things, I might do that.

In case you have no idea what NaNoWriMo is, it’s a month that authors sign up at nanowrimo.org, dedicate that month to write at least 50k words, and get prizes. And a T-Shirt. ๐Ÿ™‚ T-Shirts are important: Been there, done that….you get the picture.

Had to steal my iPad back from my daughter. She took off with it (I gave her my permission) Sunday night since I wasn’t using it. Then I wanted to use it yesterday. *sigh* Now I have to charge it and it’s doing odd things when it’s low on power. Very strange. I did just update it Sunday too. I might need to reboot it again.

The return of the iPad

Greetings everyone. I’m back with an iPad (b-day present so I can talk to parents with facetime) to help with writing, games, editing, reviews, social media, and all those things that had to be put on the back burner while I find a full-time job. Well, I found one. ๐Ÿ™‚

It is an interesting transition but I’m enjoying it. I plan to stalk Goodreads.com (if you haven’t joined, you should as it is a one-stop shopping smorgasbord for your reading (and writing if you are so inclined) pleasure. Great way to get yourself advertised if you are self-publishing. Highly recommend it. If you need beta reading or editing, let me know. I read just about everything, including Romance, Science Fiction, Fantasy, Paranormal, Steampunk, YA, and other genres I don’t normally read… Mostly fiction though, although, I can probably be talked into non-fiction depending upon the topic. You can contact me on my contacts page.

More poetry will be posted as soon as I get my act together. I have years of stuff to wade through and that doesn’t include the stuff I create. Might even write short stories and/or novels. Still working on that.

Thanks to those that encourage me and I’m going to try post more often. If nothing else, I hope you are entertained.
