Observe blue, fine trains
Bright and low in the night sky 
Dazzling hours
Heaven sparkling its light
Creating magic and joy

I hope you enjoyed my tanka for this week’s Ekphrastic Photoprompt for Colleen Chesebro’s poetry challenge.

I’ve a fair amount of news! I would like to share that my YA fantasy Bloodstone is in The AllAuthor cover competition! I’d love it if you could vote for it. It is doing really well and at the last count was at #23 in the voting ranks. I’m hoping with your help it will go through to the next round.
