gladness is a sunny storm

i remember his narrow words
the folded table
his attraction to
fool’s gold
kind words in hard buckets

no faith
no trust
no love
his heart a brilliant, tough anchor
drawn to shaded water

his saddest thoughts, hail balls
thunderously fighting rain

all i can say is
gladness is a sunny storm

    Sorry folks. I can’t seem to write this stuff anymore. It seems that my script has kidnapped my brain. Lol. Wishing you a wonderful day.

    I’ve suffered from this disease. It takes a lot of practice not to get repeatedly infected with this disease. I think I am getting better at it but it took far too many decades.

  3. The essence is shed abroad so delicately ! BEAUTIFUL !

        I’ve been working on a script for the past 1 1/2 years. It’s a supernatural drama that contains suspense and action. It is also a love story.

        Thank you for your kind and encouraging words.

        Oh brilliant!! Too wonderful indeed. I imagine it is quite exquisite. Would love to read it one day, see the results of it being performed.

        I like to write just wee “radio plays”. It’s a fantastic form to write in indeed. So much fun. The one I’m working on now is a comedy about a couple, both professors, and their day spent at a horse stable and the misadventures that ensue. It is partially based on real events, like when my mum was lifted up by a donkey. I like to make them for my niece.

        Many ebullient cheers,

        Autumn Jade

        Would love for you to read my script. Will send you a copy when completed.

        Your radio play sounds delightful. Your niece is a lucky young lady. 🙂

        I’m heading off to work. I enjoyed your last blog. Will read more over the long weekend.

        Mary Ann
