Looking Forward – A Tanka

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. Cold winds are racing across the foothills on this fine Colorado day. The sky is a pale blue, and a white haze of clouds has crept over the mountains. Ron is working in the kitchen preparing a fabulous meal to commemorate the day. The holidays are hard for me each year, and … Continue reading Looking Forward – A Tanka

Writers Quote Wednesday Writing Challenge – Waiting Game

Mel’s visuals of autumn are spectacular… AND, take a sneak peek at a new character she is sharing – A goddess of Autumn! Had to share! ❤

This week for the Writers Quote Wednesday Writing Challenge (#WQWWC) the theme is Autumn.

The quote I chose is by George Eliot:

Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns. George Eliot.

There is something truly magnificent about autumn, and though we Brits don’t celebrate the holiday, it is a time for thanksgiving. For the glorious colours that explode to life, even in death. For the rich and pleasant smells, the wind on your cheeks, the fire in the hearth, and the warm drinks shared with friends.

I found myself inspired by the theme, so I created a few images to (hopefully) entertain you.

My inspiration for the piece of flash fiction has its roots in my current project. Eventually I will get back to my other works but, as you probably know, I have lived and breathed the…

The Weather Witch

I have been told that I am a weather witch, a purveyor of the elements. Strange weather events take place where ever we live. Somehow I maneuver the climate. Like the blizzard that blew into Colorado Springs last evening through this morning... The winds blew hard, battering the north side of the house. Boards creaked … Continue reading The Weather Witch

Autumn’s Last Gasp

Autumn breathes the last gasps of the season, as leaves of brown and gold drift from the treetops – a blanket of decaying warmth. Grey skies steal the color from the day, mourning the end of another time of year. The darkness envelopes and caresses lulling the earth to sleep, held in the cradle of … Continue reading Autumn’s Last Gasp

Autumn Sea and Sky

The autumn sea and sky meet at blue-grey swells, blending one into the other; while the days and months of the year slowly slip asunder. Gentle waves lap at the beach washing clean the white sands of time; as shore birds chase and play in the ripples of the tide. November winds blow lightly, fickle … Continue reading Autumn Sea and Sky
