Hello beautiful readers! I didn’t do a post yesterday because I’ve been working really hard on my novel Light My Sky in hopes to get it finished by this time next week. I thought it would be kind of fun to share a little sneak peek of what I’ve been working on here on the blog in case anyone cares to read it. Below is a poem that one of my characters writes in the book, that I felt like sharing so I hope you enjoy!
I’ve told you that I love the light above all else,
The ice inside my soul it quickly melts
Golden, warm, balmy and sweet,
And from the first day that I found you in my seat,
You’ve been another source of light for me,
The bright rays of your mind make it easier to see,
Your laugh brings hope, so bright and warm,
Your faith in me, it calms my storm,
The heart that sweet within you beats,
It’s tenderness my cold soul heats,
Like the name to which you oft reply,
You are a star, you light my sky.
Okay, I know it’s a little cheesy, but I think it’s cute. If you are reading this post and you are at all interested in proofreading/critiquing other people’s writing, I would absolutely love to have you read my manuscript! I am happy to return the favor for any other aspiring novelists and writers out there. If you have something you would like me to read, drop me a comment and we can work out an arrangement! Hope you all have a lovely week!
