Today, I downloaded a beta version of a creative writing software that I hope to use for editing my novel. To try it out, I decided to scratch out a poem...and this is what came out. So that which would be written, has been written; and that which is not yet ready, has not.
Merry Christmas lovely reader.
Eclipse - 2010
I missed the Eclipse this Winter Solstice
Rainclouds covered the sky
As is usual in my bleak midwinter.
I couldn’t see the world go dark
I missed the red glow in the sky
I didn’t feel the longest night
Go still and silent and black.
I went to bed like any other night
I burrowed into blankets
And battled with my dreams
And prayed that I might wake another day.
I did awake.
The darkness was still there
My northern latitude at its apogee
To Sol and light and warmth.
But this morning the moon shone large
Bathing the bare limbs in light
Guiding me out of the dark.
