Hello dear readers and followers.
Sorry I haven’t been posting, but the hands on life’s clock have been spinning out of control for me lately. Not that anything drastic has happened; I’m just playing catch up around home after long hours of working on someone else’s book, and then my own.
Seasons of Gold was published for a few hours March 29th, until I got a good look at it online and saw that the images I included were messing up the book. Looked okay in the Previewer, but it wasn’t! So over the past week I’ve redone the whole thing and uploaded it to Kindle; the file looks good so I’ve just hit PUBLISH. Feels good!
constant shifting of patterns
keeps me spinning
Sadly, I’m can’t see myself finding the time to keep up with this blog, so for this spring and summer season I’m going to have WordPress beam this site over to my main one, Christine’s Collection, and publish all my haiku poems there. If you aren’t already visiting and/or following to that blog, I do hope you will.

This is one verse in my book of haiku, SEASONS OF GOLD, which I plan to publish as an e-book next Saturday. This is the cover design I’ve chosen:
This past month I have been occupied with getting a book published on Amazon, both a print and an e-book version. I did this on behalf of the originator of the story, who didn’t have a clue how to go about self-publishing. Though I did my own book a couple of years back, I’ve had to relearn the process to get this done.
‘The book, the tale of two young teen British boys who go on an allegorical journey, is now live on Amazon — check it out! — and it’s time I got back to doing regular posts on my blogs again.

My e-book, Silver Morning Song, is free on Amazon this weekend, Nov 22-26th, so if you enjoy reading inspiring poems and short stories, do pick up your copy.
Here’s the book blurb:
“Silver Morning Song is a celebration of the delightful world around us, together with stories of the foibles and complexities of the creatures that occupy it. Here you will find accounts of folks facing decisions, rumors, health issues, temptations, anger, envy — and you’ll see the wisdom granted to help them find their way to a solution.
Through parables and short stories, in a voice sometimes humorous, sometimes serious, the writer shares valuable insights into human nature and Christian living, interspersed with poetic descriptions of the natural world and the changing seasons.”

line stalled while she finds out
other children play
this one reads her hours away
and dreams of more books
Speaking of which:
Nanowrimo starts tomorrow at 12:01am!
book store aisles
so many voices call me
magic carpet rides
she takes her books to bed
hides stories in her pillow
they swirl through her dreams
funnel clouds sighted
weatherman says—I fly through
my book’s last chapter
