November

Prick my skin and peel it back
Inside you'll find
November skies
That filled me to the brim
When I looked up today

Speaking of winter (....more or less) a story of mine, "The Stars' Chill Song," which was originally published in Zahir (a speculative fiction zine that has since closed) in 2011, is reprinted in Still Water: A Noblebright Fantasy Anthology.

The only other stories in it that I've read are the ones by Sherwood Smith, but I sense a theme of coldness, at least in the titles ("Ice and Fire," "Iron and Frost," "The Ice of Heaven"), and there's one author who I want to read just because of his cool name: Ville Meriläinen.

Here is an Amazon link if you want to check it out.

Thank you for the link, and congratulations! I also like your poem:
"Prick my skin and peel it back..."

Thank you--I didn't know if the poem was just kind of silly seeming, or all right. It was what I felt, though. The sky in November is so white/gray, austere, and looking up at it, I could feel it filling me.


... You had a new entry before; I'm sorry I didn't answer comments or look at new entries yesterday. I had a lot of work and planned to look later in the day, which became the next day, but by then it was too late!
