For People Dropping By

I am to be found at: margoroby.wordpress.com

My blog, Margo Roby: Wordgathering, is a place where I post poems, set up a weekly prompt for you to try, post a weekly sum up of other prompts from around the poetry sphere, and sometimes engage in discussion, or make announcements.

I would love to have you drop by.

Still following?

If anyone is still following, thank you, but you may have given up as my stones slow to a trickle. Fiona's and Kaspa's new writing site is where I post now, but if you aren't a member and don't plan to be I will be posting my stones on one of my wordpress blogs: http://mroby.wordpress.com/

Forty fourth Stone

Like a planetary system
at street level, shine
halogen lamps in
the early morning dark.

or

From the sidewalks
halogen planets
shine through early
morning darkness.

Forty-second Stone

The city skyline dark
still against the lightening
sky but for one tower
 its facade blazing
with the reflected light
of the unrisen sun.

Forty-first Stone

Three o'clock
in the morning
sleepless, I sit
at the computer
wrapped against
the chill in my
grandmother's
blue and white
chrysanthemum
kimono and
try to write
my way home
to sleep.
