i wipe my mouth with serviette and keep it shut

since your flaring eyes and nostrils fiasco
i’ve a changed face
just for you
i’ve chosen to be inarticulate
lock my words
preserve my dignity
act like a lady
maturity is a burning lipstick
intercepted by cool breeze
always speak kindly

The Creative Blogger Award

the-creative-blogger-award-copyI’m honored to have been nominated for the Creative Blogger Award.  A big thanks to Noir–the darker side of sedge808 at: http://sedge808.com/ for nominating me.  Gavin is a brilliant photographer.  Do stop by his page if unfamiliar with his work.

The rules:

* Display the creative blogger award logo on your blog.
* Nominate 15-20 blogs and notify all nominees via their social media/blogs.
* Thank and post the link of the blog that nominated you (very important).
* Share 5 random facts about yourself to your readers.
* Pass these rules on to them.

To the people I nominate:  Please accept my nomination for the Creative Blogger Award.  If you’ve no time to participate, I understand.  🙂

Five facts about me:

1.  I’m currently writing a new spec script.  It’s a suspense thriller.

2.  I’m looking forward to the warmth of summer — doing more writing outdoors.

3.  I’m reading a book entitled, Eats, Shoots & Leaves by Lynne Truss.  I’m also reading five screenwriting books and The Andy Warhol Diaries.

4.  I just finished dying my hair a darker shade of blonde.  This wasn’t intentional!

5.  This weekend, I tried making detox water with orange, lemon, lime, cucumber and fresh mint leaves.  It was wonderful — refreshing.  I think I’m hooked.

These are my nominees for the Creative Blogger Award:

writer’s chair shining

the rumbling of virus check
paces across midnight
time the tick of a clock
anticipation

she takes a stand
skinny font
bold lettering
they extend their hands

“in essence they fear a lion
but not a woman”

she opens the door too quickly
ripping her nylons
upsetting the word cart

oh, grin!

the conversation dissolves
the ever present sunlight
slightly fades her material

three cheers
to a flippant self
and to all whom she respects

at the sight of home
her raised brow
rises like a giant umbrella…
writer’s chair shining
