“This Last Chance” is in the hands of my beta readers, who I am eternally grateful for their input and precious time. I decided to take a couple of “me” days to unwind after some intense editing. The weather has been unusually warm and sunny, which I enjoyed. These days always seem to lead me to write poetry. For the very first time, I was compelled to write some Haikus, too. Here’s a sample of my “Me” Day Poetry:
It’s a warm winter day
The forest is silent and solemn
The bees, birds, and bears are absent
But the ravens follow me with interest.
I hike over the dry terrain
The leaves still scattered
From the winds of fall.
The woodrats nestled in their cozy houses
While the caterpillars are awaiting spring
I, alone wander through the pines
With my dog by my side
On a warm winter day
When rain and snow should be falling
In a time when nothing is normal
The trees remind me of what we can survive.
The soaking rains stopped
Winter’s magic vanished
Fire danger returns
The beams of sunlight
filtering through winter trees
caressing my face

My landline/Wifi is down at the moment. I don’t get a cell signal either. So, I will drive down the hill to check in and respond once a day. Hopefully, this will be resolved soon. Thanks for your patience. (I’m back now. Yay!)
