Meandering On Monday with Janet Lane Walters #MFRWauthor #poetry
Meander 1 - Poem
Statue of Liberty
An icon, she stands, torch held high
On her island pedistal.
Madonna America stared to sea.
Metal eyes unblinking.
Tarnished by weatyer, by vandals
By bird, salt ocean spray.
Curious crowds on boats passing by
Call to her eagerly, offer their dreams.
She stands and she gazes with unseeing eyes
A statue, a symbol - blind eyes and deaf ears.
Madonna America, what do you mean?
Meander 2 - Meeting - A good meeting of the chapter today. Talked about the coming retreat and what will be done. Many will bring their laptops and type away. I will bring clipboard and pens and paper. Maybe I'll be on a revision segment. The time is a month away. Been thinking about some of the members and their expectations. Many are writing for money. Perhaps one or more will succeed and perpahs none will. I'm in this for the long haul. Not making much money but enjoying what I do. If you really like what you're doing you will do it.
Meander 3 - Finally finished the sixth of the At First Sight stories - rewriting. I am nearly finished typing four and now that Jude has finished her paperwork that hopefully will bring good to the company, I can start sending the two more that will be finished to her. Must let Jasmin know about the covers. A new bit I'm into the second week and that's using Saturday and Sunday for blog posts and also for promotion. Ugh. Don't like that. Am also working on the missing pages of Kathy's story. Some sounds good, some rough.
