On My Writing Desk

Rose in a bud vaseOn my writing desk today, a coral and yellow rose in a bud vase, my attempt to bring a bit of nature indoors.

While the summer here in north Texas hasn’t been as hot as it could be, we’ve had quite a bit of rain.  Which means standing water.  Which means mosquitoes.

Morning walks, in which I often draft fiction and poems, are out. I’m missing these walks even more as I’m trying to finish up a collection of poems and revise a novella.

So a rose in a bud vase will do.

    If the mosquitoes lay their eggs in the vase water, do post pictures of the swarming larvae.
