  3. Thank you, Gautami, for telling me about the Monday Poetry Train. I will certainly participate when I can! I love that there’s no prompt because I can just go where my muses lead me. Here’s what I wrote about yesterday:

  10. If only I was retired, then I’d happily write unique posts for each writing prompt. (So if you’ve read this, please go back in my archives and read an older post. I love to write humor, too!)

  12. Message for Richard, Bundle of His(s)

    Hi Richard, I don’t know what I’m doing wrong but try as I might I still can’t leave a comment on your blog. I’ve tried on several occasions over the past few months and I’ve checked back now and none of my comments have been saved. I wonder if any one else is having the same problem?

  14. Here’s a look into the Deep Shadows

    If anyone is having the same problem with leaving a comment for me, try enlarging the comment pop-up. You might not be getting all the buttons. Sweets, thanks for letting me know.

    Anything else, please let me know by writing

    Here is my poem:
    Tuesday, January 06, 2009

    Free fall
    In a void
    Will it end?

    Free fall
    So broken
    Lips blue
    Eyes wide

    Free fall
    Chilled pale skin
    The circle turns
    The tide covers all
