#SampleSunday AND 1st of Month AND A-to-Z Blogfest!!!

This is the first day of the April A-to-Z Blogfest, the day all participants are supposed to post on a subject beginning with the letter A.

It’s also the first of the month, so I have a new Hot Flash for you.

Aa-aa-and, it’s Sunday, so I have a bit of writing. We’re supposed to keep these ‘fest posts short, so I have a wee little poem today, and the title begins with the requisite letter:

by Marian Allen

Leaves flutter like wings
Of birds who
Swarm the trees
Like bees to honey.

Warm and golden, light
Drips from everything.
Can yesterday have melted
Into this?

WRITING PROMPT: A character wakes to a day much better than the day before.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    Hey there! Great start and lovely poem! I love the last line especially, it ties everything together nicely. And writing prompts are always a good thing in my book!

    Cheers from M @ Feed Me A Stray Cat!
