New Writing of the Month for January ~ Light & Shadow

The light has been stolen away
                           bit by bit each day

Once the tide turns
a small handful of light
will be returned each day
every piece as small 
                           as a grain of sand

until then we hold as much light as we can
in all colours and shapes

casting long shadows

to stand guard for us 
                            against the chill.

Hello 2016! 

Hello everyone, I hope you had a great time celebrating the New Year last night. No hangover for me since it was an entirely sober festive season - I don't really care, I've never been much of a drinker and being pregnant is better anyway :) 

We welcomed in 2016 last night and I lit my first firework! - I couldn't believe it but I realised the other day that I've never lit one before. Then we were in bed by 1! lol Some party people we are. 

I hope you all enjoy 'Light & Shadow' it was inspired by the return of the daylight, the longest day has been and gone - the days will get longer and warmer now. Nature is amazing :)

Have you made any New Year's Resolutions? I'm not really a fan of making them but something I really want to do this year is write my socks off and really knuckle down and promote 'Alchemy' - I'm not going to have much time after June! 

Happy Friday and have a wonderful start to 2016.
