UNPUBLISHED WORKS

Dear reluctant readers,

I have not visited my blog for some time now. I have been busy revising my novel, The Beast Awaits, and hope to, by the end of the year, start seeking a home for this work.

In the meantime, I thought I’d post some of my work that no one felt worthy of publication.

This offering is a poem, written some time ago. Now that my daughters are both adults, I feel a special kinship to this poem that was written when they were children.

TRANSITIONS

The years, they march forever,
Dreams flare, then fade away,
Some reach, some corner of my mind
Still plays with yesterday.

The years, they take their toll,
Hopes dim, then fade away,
My youth, now past now spent
Has abandoned me this day.

I pause, I catch the sound
Of small children, my children at play,
The world comes slowly full circle,
I pause, nothing what to say.

Their years, the grow they flourish,
Their dreams, they seize the day,
I retreat, then yield and vanish,
Hope fills their world today.
