Held a contest recently over at WritersCafe called Winter Tales. The 1st place prize was having their writing produced into a short video. Fran Marie was the winner, and here is her poem called “White Magic.” Enjoy!
Even after 22 years, today’s date still affects me.
The day my first husband died.
Even though I’ve gone on with my life…
with a family of my own…
You are still with me.
And in spirit.
Even after all these years
I’m still filled with regrets and pain
mainly for the way I acted, and treated you.
There are days when I still wished I could go back
and change those things
even just to say I’m sorry
here I am still in mourning and missing you
and regretting how I’ve treated you
and wishing I could take it all back.
Even today, after all these years.
This month’s question: Do you have any quotes you use for inspiration?
Every once in a while I get stuck as a writer. Whether the right words are being elusive, or I’m stressed over something from my personal life (usually over finances), or I just can’t get focused. These are times when I look to quotes to help either jumpstart my creativity, or just get me in to a reflective mood which tend to get the words flowing.
Here are some of my favorite quotes:
What about you? Do you have any favorite quotes?
After Mother’s death,
I found in the attic
The hand-crafted words brimmed
full of pain and love
and truth untold
My oblivious mind
with the knowledge—
I’m an alien’s child
As mentioned in previous posts, I am in the planning stage of a (my very first!) romance-suspense novel, Storms of the Heart. Using Canva, I created a book cover. What do you think?
Here’s a draft of the story’s synopsis:
Kathleen Burman moved to the small town of Walden, nestled in the prairie valley near the Rockies, in search of a new life. There she meets the locals each with their own troubled past as herself.
Joe Tucker is one of the locals who deliberately keeps busy to keep his painful past at bay. Along comes Kat who reawakens something within he thought he’d never feel again. Dr. Weaver Teems, a city dweller who temporarily moved to Walden to help out a colleague, deliberately steps in between Kat and Joe, to convince her there’s a better life outside Walden.
Soon the past and present collide as storms of the heart erupt. Who will survive?
