Poems #37 and 38: “Omen” and “Marriage Counselor”

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted anything, mainly because of midterms and having nothing much to update on my writing. My white board is accumulating a cluster of post-it notes, though. I’ve developed a bit more of the plot outline for my next book and jotted down a few story ideas, but that’s about it.

I’m still toying with the possibility of writing a good vs. evil fantasy series, but I haven’t talked myself into it yet. I have a few ideas for characters and setting, but not much more than that. If I set it in the same world as my other fantasy novels, I’ll need to work up a better historical timeline than I have at the moment and decide whether it precedes these novels / series or follows after them. I’ll also need to decide on a name for the world, and I’m leaning toward calling it Skein. (The other option is Knittingham, but that’s a bit of a cheesy pun. It would work for The Drunken Wizards but not the other books.)

Anyway, here are a couple of short poems I wrote earlier this year.

Omen

Flower
after flower
the petals fall,
always ending
on she loves me

not.
