Firelight

cold crystal snow chipped
winter'd afternoon

excitement rises
in the blood
in the bones

melting through the icing
round the skin

Thanks.
I've been on a major all-blog hiatus. I'm amazed someone noticed. :) I started this blog-break last summer because blogs (reading them, mostly) were getting so addictive, it was taking up too much of my time. I didn't like how I obessively had to know what's going on out there in other people's lives, and felt I should focus more on my own. I still feel this way, so I'm planning just to write on my own, when I can - although as usual, I get writer's block from knowing that I'm OUT THERE, that people are reading (or are capable of reading). I feel like knowing there's an audience changes the freeness of my expression. But I still want to try, because that's one of the facets of writing - letting other people see your words.
Hope you are well! Thanks for visiting!

I check often and was so happy to see a new post. Even though just a few words, they were heavy words. Sounds hopeful and inspiring, insha'allah khair! Hope all's well with you, dear! I miss bumping into in cyber space (forums, blogs, etc). Oh well, we'll always have fb ;-)
