Meredith Gibraltar writes a poem about friends for her first book Martha.  Martha has just talked to her best friend Stephanie.  Cheers!

I speak to you dear friend.
I open up.
Will you condemn me?
Will you judge me?
I speak to you my dear friend.
You ask questions.
How do I cope?
Mindfulness I say.
Me too you say.
Wonder of wonders.
You need mindfulness too.
We share a need.
We share more than friendship.
You understand.
You don’t judge.
You encourage.
And you understand.

The plot thickens…

Meredith Gibraltar writes about her first book Martha.  It’s cold out.  A good time to be indoors and writing.  The plot thickens in her novel titled Martha.

Martha has fallen in love with a retired policeman.  Someone she trusts completely.  However an escaped convict is now after him and possibly after Martha.  Daniel must drop everything to protect Martha.  Will this evil man find her?  Will he find Daniel?  The plot thickens….

And I find more to write about in my novel.  I thought it was the last chapter.  It’s going to be a long chapter I think.  The wheels in my mind keep on turning.

Cheers!

My heart breaks … a poem.

Our tenderness.
Your gentleness.
We lay together.
It has been so long.
So long that I have felt a touch.
So long that my spirit has soured.
So long that I hear a sigh and a groan.
It is love.
But my heart breaks.
It has been too long.
Too long silent.
Too long alone.
With humility and love.
My heart breaks.
Your sighs and gentle touch heals it.
Once again I am whole.
I love you.  You love me.
It is right.

Courage…a poem

Meredith Gibraltar writes a poem about Courage for her book Martha.  Cheers!

I stand before you.
Naked in my tears.
With all my courage I stand before you.
Not knowing your opinion.
Not knowing my fate.
Not knowing if you will judge me.
For what I have faced.
For what I have been.
I am mentally ill.
I stand before you.
Naked in my tears.

Are you a writer looking to get published? Literary agent Juliet Pickering has some publishing world myths to address… There are a lot of fictions (ironically!) shared about the publishing world and how we work.
