October Composition #1
With her eBook closed and moonlight watching her sleeping husband,
she returns to planning the book she will write in November. Last night
the protagonist and the bass-playing love interest followed the rules
and made love at last. Because the broad strokes of the story should be firm
in her mind, she will now replay the scene. Why should fiction have all the fun?
The morning sky will not appear to be blue. Unless blue is flannel soft
and Confederate gray. The river may show lavenders, pinks, a trace
of something like yellow, and in silhouette the great blue heron
flying from home toward his favorite breakfast place. The train will
call from the bridge. The mud bank will always give sound to the water.
