We’re in and out of the shadows, up and down the munros this morning with a couple of haiku…
Deep-cut defile sinks
Past pine roots, claggy moss, and
Into timeworn pools.
Huddled from the sun,
Furrowed snow in shadow lies.
Spring rays reaching up.
Things I’ve read this week…
Hermione Laake has written a fantastic piece of free verse called ‘These Hands‘. It is a lovely bit of writing which examines the travails, achievements, and history that our hands can tell.
Gabriela Marie Milton is an award winning author previously featured in Spillwords. Her piece ‘If I say I Love You‘ is a haunting, beautiful piece which will stay with you long after you have clicked away from it. The prose is perfectly weighted and not a word is wasted.

Matthew Richardson is a writer of short stories. His work has featured in Gold Dust magazine, Literally Stories, Near to the Knuckle, McStorytellers, Penny Shorts, Soft Cartel, Whatever Keeps the Lights On, and Shooter magazine. He is a PhD student at the University of Dundee, a lucky husband, and a proud father.
Not necessarily in that order.
