Author’s Choice: “Sounds Done”

Of my posts this past year, there is one I like best…
(Tell you why at the end)

Sounds Done

It was my youth
Mythical devil trade
Not for fame and fortune
Only to hear my sound refrain

Forty-six seasons pass
The mural weathered cruel storms and sun
Sure I’ll write another novel—
My life has already taken this one

Majesty for words
Conscious sting
Losing love
Bitter dreams

So cheers to renewal
I’m beginning to see
Wrote my best
Now let it be…

I wrote the above poem upon the completion of my second novel.  So this post will always be sentimental to me. 

Sounds from a House
is about the vindication of a tortured people.
This manuscript is currently unpublished.
