Back to poetry…

Lets try this again! My computer went plaid while I was working here!

So here we go. I am back to putting up fun poetry since my book seems to not interest people but my poetry is lately.

Spring Rain ©2006

Hammering on the roof
coming down so fast
ponding on the roads
keeping the morning dark

Shouldn’t it be light
easing the winter ground
bringing up the flowers
not drowning out the buds

True Heroes

You came with the call
dove into the fight
flames burning all around
and you continued your duty

Your brave souls surrendered
in an inferno unimaginable
we honor your courage
yet wish it wasn’t so

Your families mourn you
as does a nation proud
of the men and women who do their best
to tame the wildfires mad

***

Photograph

A photograph

a flat imagine of a man

who has depth and soul and meaning

who holds my world in his hands 

Sometimes the eyes catch mine

hold me for a spell

but most times they are flat

leaving me in hell

Writing what form today?

As you readers know I do a lot of different stuff. From short stories to novellas to novels to poems to drabbles and flash ficiton. Trouble with this is at times i am not sure where I want to do on a given day. Should i do this or that or what?

I started just last week making up teasers for my novels. Those are basically images with a bit of your book either to the side or embedded in the image and a link to your book.

Last week I posted up the one for Traveler and this week I have one for Endings…but I think i need to do something different for the next ones…instead of the cover i need a sexy image right?

So today I will be working on something different, once I get all my blogs up-to-date. With blog monday, teaser tuesday, first pages wednesday and marketing friday…I realized i skipped thursday…oh wait that is supposed to be throw back thursday…hmmm…what can I do? How about older poems with images from that time?

Here is the first one. This poem is from my Generations of Love collection.
