The Fertile and the Fallow

The garden is barren

So is the blog

But my womb is a flutter with a new set of feet
that tap, tap, tap
and twist when I sit by the shine
of my reading lamp

* * *

I think I'm done blogging --
at least for a while

No real reason other than I've picked up a few other hobbies,
and time, as you know, is a finicky thing

* * *

So, goodbye for now

Perhaps, a new baby will mark a return

Or, perhaps guilt over keeping no family photo albums will move me into slapping up a Christmas Post.

If not, au revoir, FishsticksonFriday, au revoir.

Much love,
