Shifting Gears

In her stopping she moans at the strain,

Bucking frantically at the rages of storms,

The clash of fire and ice,

As mantle separates from core

And so many cower for dearth and life.

Then stillness reigns,

In countless minds wiped clean.

Almost here…

And when the red sands drift

Beneath the crystal waters sunlit swell,

You can see the geometry left behind.

It took a shift

To bring us here.

Just a poem to motivate myself to work on Hidden Isles.  I’ve abandoned this manuscript for much too long.  I find it far too easy to distract myself with other things.  Really must stop that!

About Ampbreia

I'm an ex-Pentacostal, ex-Muslim, ecclectic Agnostic with slightly Wiccan leanings. I am not affiliated with any organized religion or political platform, but I do believe in magic and all things wise and wonderful. I work as an admin in a calibration lab. I've published 2 books so far this year: Lost in Foreign Passions: Love and betrayal, passion and loss in the heart of an alien land (a memoir of my time as a Muslimah and living in Iran for a year), written under my previous married name, Debra Kamza, and Dream Lover (a paranormal romance, the tale of witch that summons her favorite character out of a Bewitched spin-off and the actor who plays him as well). I'm constantly writing stories and poems, thoughts and dreams, and quite a few opinions - many of which are not popular but oh well. Bite me. I'm interested in art, animals, the paranormal, and people. I love to dance, all sorts, but have been studying belly dance since 2006 and LOVE it! I love anime too and love dressing up and going to conventions. My writing runs the gummut of historical, science fiction, fantasy, romance, and erotica. Beware: I may not be safe reading for work. Just saying....

  1. Each of us with a conscience struggles, daily, with fire and ice.
