Midwinter – a poem

Today is the shortest day

Tonight the longest night

Tomorrow’s sunrise the turning point

That marks the returning light

*

In the very heart of winter

There’s a special vigil to keep

As we wait patiently in the dark

For the sun to wake from sleep

*

Soon the world will be brighter

It will be the darkness’ turn to wane

It won’t be long until spring is here

When The Wheel will turn again

“A Family Reunion” and an update…

A Family Reunion:

My short story, A Family Reunion, has been included in the latest Zimbell House Publishing anthology, Children of Zeus: A Collection of Mythic Tales.  The story focuses on one of Zeus’ less famous children, Pandea, a moon goddess who (for the purposes of this story) decided to keep contact with her immortal family to a minimum, choosing instead to make her home alongside mortals.  However, Zeus doesn’t like to be ignored by his children…

I had fun writing this story.  I love Greek mythology and I enjoyed seeing how many Greek gods, goddesses and heroes I could mention.  Zimbell House has a few more Greek mythology-inspired anthologies coming up and it would be fun to try and write something for another one if I can.

You can learn more about this anthology by checking it out on the publisher’s website or heading over to Goodreads.

The update:

Having spent most of the week in bed with the flu, I was overwhelmed to see such lovely comments left for me regarding the publication of One Turn of The Wheel, when I did finally feel well enough to switch the computer on.  So, I just wanted to let everyone know, I’ve not been ignoring you!
