Civil Twilight

Does the soul bruise

Breathe in the chill perfume

Of evening

As civil twilight tips its hat

In my direction

Spent days in comfortable silence

Speaking on the page

Life is a symphony

Some melodies remain

Others added

Some dissonance

Kept and others

Are wrong notes

Useful to remind me

That the trick is to keep playing.

Until She Sings – Beta Readers Wanted

I am looking for beta readers for this project.

UNTIL SHE SINGS

M B BLISSETT

You cannot stay silent if you want to be heard.

Caitlin Ross, a young singer-songwriter, makes her debut at an open mic night playing and singing her own songs for the first time. Struggling in her relationship with her once, nearly famous boyfriend Luke, Caitlin’s performance lends a new spotlight for him to pirate. But Caitlin has grown weary of life in Luke’s shadow.
When a handsome stranger, Daniel,  introduces himself after her set, the attraction is immediate and all consuming. His pursuit quickly throws Luke’s failings as a partner into stark relief. And she quickly finds herself caught between the past and the future, chained to the former by her guilt over Luke’s dependence upon her.

I am looking for beta readers, so please get in touch if you are interested in providing me with feedback on the book.

Sudden Storms

Speaking in actions

Elegant in silence

And never lost

In the deluge of task

Long enough not to

Close the distance

Reward myself with the scent of you

The way you fit my hands

No time to close the promise

But the anticipation flashes in my bones

Like lightning

And your smile stirs thunder

But it passes and the tepid sky

Ignores it

But we know

We know

Here, here, here

No time wasted in idleness

If my life is a game

Played with such intention

I forget it’s not real

Then as the difficulty rises

So I unlock new abilities

Sensitivities and

Subtleties

All is study

Sharp but not cruel

My thoughts take flight

and it is all,

In the diffused daylight

Just

Play

But you, warm and resting,

Call to me without speaking,

And that too

Is play,

So I finish a coffee,

An exquisite detail

To a moment platonic

In its perfection

And you are adjacent

Here, here, here.
