Another cryptic and tight-lipped weekend update. I still haven’t spilled the beans to all interested and important people in my life. This means you all will have to wait a little longer for my what’s update.
I have a short story I have been working on and hope to eventually post for feedback. I have had some editing help and there is more flushing out to do. So in the interim here is a double Etheree I wrote inspired by Michael Drainsfield’s poem ‘After a birthday’.
See you on Monday. I hope (no promises) to give my fellow fictioneers the reading attention they so rightly deserve. Thanks for baring with me as of late.
A Line Was Drawn
That fateful night a line was drawn in dirt
Like the hedge between our properties
Cricket song giving way to cries
Splayed among the golden wheat
Humpty Dumpty’s Wall
Upon me cheek
Swept to the wayside
Lay Echoes of childhood
Marking innocence lost as
The warm summer’s night closes in
Trembling memories of youth gone astray
A line drawn demarcating yesterday
Blast from This Blogs Past
