New Books

Composed 1/2/16
Description: For the Daily Prompt’s Write Here, Write Now prompt, I now write a post in present tense. Fittingly, a situation I find myself in presently.

I pick it up and turn the page
Eagerly!
The next the next!
Battles, love unwrap before me
From page to page
And scene to scene
So bittersweet
I yearn to know
But slowly now I try to go
I savor these last moments of ignorance
Such pleasure courses through me!
Such restraint I bear!
The excitement
My hands shake
It tears me apart!

Spring Storms

Composed 4/28/14
Description: (Day 28 of NaPoWriMo as promised) I hope it storms tonight….

A calmness settles in the air
‘til lightning strikes and static flares
I feel the build in every hair
and jump when thunder booms and scares

Of its power I’m well aware
And yet this brings me no despair
I am cautious, I do beware
But its wonder leads me to stare

I laugh and curl up in my chair
and sit and watch within my lair
The view is better with a pair
Encourage the storm if you dare
