February 2022 Catch-Up: What I’ve Been Working On

February 2022 Catch-Up: What I’ve Been Working On

The second month of the year is gone already…    This year is already messing with my sense of time. January felt like the longest month of my life, while February? February is running for the exit sign while my calendar is still stuck on January. So, it looks...

January 2022 Catch-Up: What I’ve Been Working On

January 2022 Catch-Up: What I’ve Been Working On

Whew, 2022.    I feel like I blinked, and suddenly 2021 is over.    I know it’s been an age and a half since I’ve been consistently posting on my website and sending newsletters, but that doesn’t mean I’ve been entirely idle in my time away.     ...

The Cup of Poison

The Cup of Poison

Lift it up  And drink you may -  Brings this cup  Eternal day.    But your days With darkness crammed;  Though it stays,  Your soul is damned.    There is no light  That shines for you;  Each day like night  To wander through.    Those you love  Will...

July 2021 Catch-Up: What I’ve Been Working On

July 2021 Catch-Up: What I’ve Been Working On

It’s crazy to think that July is almost over!    There are so many things that I keep adding to my to-do list, but I want to take the time to look back on everything that I’ve done and am in the middle of working on. To keep things in perspective and help me stay...

Missing Pages

Missing Pages

I must have missing pages  Or perhaps the cover's blank.   Maybe the title is misleading  Or it could be just a prank.    The words might be misspelled  Or blurred before your eyes.   Punctuation, for all I know,  Mayhaps does follow lies.     It's possible,...

Buds of Spring

Buds of Spring

Blood-red drops  On ashen trees  Soon give way  To newborn leaves.  All at once  They seem to burst  In a race  To blossom first.  Spring is here!  But for how long?  It will bow  To Summer's song.   Read my latest poems, "Behind a Smile" and "Momentary...

Wejel: A Common Currency

Wejel: A Common Currency

I’ve had this idea for a while now of writing background info posts about Eran’s world, Bedoria. Maybe even some character interviews.    My notes have been getting expensive as I build this world with religion, politics, history, legends, cultures, etc. There’s...

Behind a Smile

Behind a Smile

A simple motion  A curve of lips  Not knowing what it costs  It's my devotion  Following scripts  Ignoring broken parts    What is a face  If not a mask  To hide away my pain?  A lonely space  An empty cask  The place of my domain    Too many voices  All...

Momentary Butterflies

Momentary Butterflies

Momentary butterflies That flit up through the air They die as they reach the skies I wonder if they care?   Born of heat that feeds on death Their mother consumes all They fade as they touch the earth She flickers as they fall.    When their mother fades...

My First Writing Contest

My First Writing Contest

Ahh, 2020. There's not much left to be said, is there?  Several months ago, I heard a radio host commenting on the idea that "2020" will be the new byword for terrible experiences. While that might prove to be an accurate prediction, 2020 wasn't an altogether awful...

January Came Today

January Came Today

  January came today   And though I like to try  I can't quite recall to say  Just when she dropped on by.    She says to us "Spring is near"  But we plunge into the cold  Soon enough, it's all too clear That we're in for ice and snow.    Yet, somehow,...

Welcome to My World!

Welcome to My World!

 Hi there, my name is Lydia Woodward, and this is my world. What does that mean? Well, once upon a time, I came to a startling realization…  Years ago, I realized that some (dare I say, most?) people walk around every day, going about their lives, without the constant...
