writing weekend

with 4 comments


This weekend, I will be attending WordSpringWordSpring is the annual spring meeting and workshop of the New Brunswick Writers’ Federation.  I will be reading some of the poetry from my ‘harvesting colour’ manuscript and I will get another eye on part of my novel at a Blue Pencil Café.

Preparations for the weekend made me think of a poem I wrote after the workshop in Saint Andrews a few years ago …

October 9, 2011 ‘Moon through the trees’ Jane Tims

encounters

~

on a windy night

in Saint Andrews, a toad

hop-toddies across the road,

bewildered

~

and on Prince of Wales, a deer

pauses on the sidewalk, stares

up the hill, and I hesitate

before driving on

~

in the Algonquin, a light

switches on, in the room I know is mine

and a couple huddles on the open porch,

and leaves, mottled, skid

along the street
