Lost Paths.

The day dawns, draws upon me 

a shadow:

a tiredness follows

pulling away the light,

ripples from

the future puddle round my feet

washing away the paths which

once beckoned.

Ooooh Mello Write

Lost path. Where

did you come from?

I was just walking

rightly yesterday

and now

it's gone.


Shadows askew,

signs mangled,

it seemed the way

to go and then

I stepped onto

the wrong path

and you became

the lost path.


Where ya been? I posted some stuff on UKA. Hang in there with the pictures in squares, it makes sense eventually. U no me, I love a challenge. Just finished novel #3 - complete rewrite and no movement on until every line was the right construct. 3 done (1 of which is Korviaaslax). 8 more to go. I have no excuse now. Copyright and put on Amazon-Kindle. Just to have it preserved. Be very well you! :D slc

Hi Stella, I havent

Hi Stella, I havent deliberately stayed away from UKA but my iPad is struggling 

with age and infirmity, I need a new one..No chance. But I can’t get it to accept their new website, and my iPhone is really fiddly to use on there. 

Sounds like you are doing really well with your book, I could never write like that :-) xx

Sick iPad?

Sorry to hear that communication will not link with UKauths. I put a poem on there every 3 weeks or so. When I find one I really like that has more international appeal, I save it on word, publish on UK and delete it from PP. Hey, it is Spring. What are you doing for this year in the sun? I passed on a trip to Miami for Easter, will stay here and write. Back is out (goes out periodically) but I am still upright and ready to go. took a walk around two neighborhood blocks this morning. Lots of daffodiles and purple flowers (maybe hyachiths). I have starfires all over the yard andin the gardens and tulip bulbs are forming. I will mix marigold and white allysum seeds in flower bed iin front of hedges and I am done. Perennials rock! The lilacs are budding and the crocuses are mostly gone. I love to watch them appear and grow and flower. It's what retired 69 year old's do. 


Be well, Stella

I love the sound of your

I love the sound of your Starfires, wonderful name conjurs up all sorts of visions, I too have been in the garden, trimming edges and planting new flowers, new pup Fudge is now a year old and coming along nicely.

I am hoping to get some inspiration going this year. 

And like you doing what 60+ folk do :-) xx
