Coming and Going

Cat at the door
cries to go out
snow-laden wind
howling to come in


This may not be the best haiku verse ever,
but it aptly describes the climate here today.




NaNoWriMo tale
dazzles my mind all day
such bright ideas


loves won, wars fought
a million villains challenge
November writers


I’m spinning out my children’s story, thankful for those bright ideas peculating in my brain. I’ve made it to 37k words now, so can relax and remember I have a house to clean and blogs wanting new posts.

For any of you who are also doing NaNoWriMo, you’ll know what a challenge it is to get your characters in and out of a stew while your daily “To-do list” goes to pot. 🙂  To everyone who’s following this blog, a big “Thank You” for your patience while I nail my Fifty-thousand words award. 🙂

One More Look

again the silly crow
flies over the puddle
oh, vanity!
