Hi everyone! Big day here in the States today. It’s an Election Day, so this afternoon I will be out exercising my right and civic duty to vote. I am probably one of the worst kind of voters because I don’t care for political parties. I’d rather vote for a person’s character instead of their promises. Wow. What a radical thought! But I did not get on here to talk about elections or voting or politics of any kind.
Today’s post is short. In part because there wasn’t really a lot going on yesterday. But mostly because I started writing half of a death scene last night, and while I didn’t really get a lot written, I think it was decent and I really want to get back to it. Plus, my villain introduced himself to me last night. Sort of. He let me know his name and a part of his plan. We should all be scared. (~evil grin~) And wouldn’t you know it, the weather is even in on the plan to get me to write. It is cold, dark, grey, and raining with all of that supposed to continue all day. My favorite kind of day for staying indoors with a hot cuppa and candles.
So, what I am going to give you today is yet another poem. But I didn’t write this one. In fact, I would really appreciate it if you would leave comments today so they can be read…by my best friend, Laura. She occasionally writes poems, and she thinks she’s not any good at it. I keep telling her she’s wrong and to have faith in herself. But sometimes you need an audience to give you a boost. I promised I would post it up on my blog. Please be honest and respectful please. I know she would really appreciate it. And, as usual, have a great day! And if you are in Dallas/Fort Worth, stay dry!

Colors of red, orange, and green
Paint the landscape before me.
Change has arrived
Bringing promise of another chance.
Vibrant colors fade into the background
As the days go by,
Preparing everyone in its sights for the time,
Time to remember…
Time to give…
Time to love…
Time to give thanks
For all that can be,
Bringing us closer as the days grow darker,
And the nights colder,
Sharing the warmth of togetherness,
Laughter, and love.
Cannot fight it…
Cannot hide from it…
Comes gently at times,
And harshly in others,
As with the change that happens before our eyes,
Change within us, too.
Embrace all that is dear…
For in the coming months,
A new beginning will always dawn.
