Hello again

I can’t believe it has been four years since I last posted here.  Much has happened that will not make for interesting reading, but as I am now trying to hone my skills as a creative writer, it seems timely to revisit this site.

I am currently participating in a challenge to write a poem each day for the month of January, and I will post my efforts here – mostly so I will not lose them in cyberspace.

#January 1 2015

Stretched out in the shade

Xylophone ribs rise and fall

Her russet tail thumps

In time with the man’s heart beat

His leathered hand stroking her ears

Empty brown bottles

Clink between their dirty feet

Fur and hair tousled

by Summer’s relentless breath

Waiting for rain consumes them
