October farewell

Autumn is the time for poetry.  Later I switch to prose.  The darkness and chill do not drag pretty thoughts out of me.  As we say farewell to October this year it seems we are rushing headlong into black moods and sorrows.  I hope we can make it through this storm that is churning up so much in us all — the election, the full moon, the Hurricane, the Mayan prophecy, the unrest in the world.  We are about to be taken up in a vortex of things when we need time to sit and contemplate.  It seems we cling like the last leaf on the tree until the impatient season rips us off and sends us flying.

About christineemmert

Words have been part of my life. First the spoken word in my time as an actress and increasingly the written word in my shift to writer. I write across the genres, but mostly as a playwright and poet. My interest as my life extends is in the realm of tethering myth to the mundane reality where I live. In this vein I have expanded into stories and novels. Presently I look at how myths taken from past cultures can affect us today. Hence my novella of Lilith which is out on Kindle . I live in the Eastern Woodlands where I try to incorporate nature into my many writing projects. We are so in danger of losing that link to our very planet!
