Another Monday, Another Week of A Querying I Will Go…

A querying I will go

A querying I will go

Emailed my submission

A querying I will go

It started off real slow

First page was years ago

It’s finally in completion

And polished with a glow

Pages I had to type

Editing was the hype

My book is finally complete

My writing skills are ripe

Some lines I had to wipe

I complained without a gripe

A rejection letter to delete

And an agent I will swipe

Proposal written well

A story I have to tell

I’ll spread awareness

With words I often yell

Querying can be hell

Making fingers swell

Guidelines are for fairness

An Agents calling bell

Proofread once again

Spacing lines too thin

Hoping for a book show

A best seller for the win

Attach files in trash bin

No writing with a pen

A querying I will go

Until an Agent says I’m in!

I was a young teenager in early 1980s when I was first called ‘Lowell’s female version of Jack Kerouac’… I remember thinking “Never heard of him?” 🤣   Here is a Poem based on my Memoir ‘A Life Given To Me’

⚘One Life in One City⚘

Sometimes I wonder… Why it was meant to be.

Living a life… The one given to me.

The heartaches came… So very young.

Only a child… My life had just begun.

I made it by & managed alone… Found my way, too my own home.

Already living what was meant to be… This is the Life Given To Me.

Read About My Life… But Don’t Have Any Pity.

I’m A Strong Irish Girl From An All American City.

Remember to Spring your clocks ahead tonight 🌼 Bringing Springtime an hour closer 💐  Here’s a Poem I wrote about New England’s Weather….

🌷New England 🌷

Watching petals bloom in full.

Such a Summer’s sight!

Catching leaves fall from branch

An Autumns ray of light!

Icy roads without a choice

Is Winters frozen right!

Now the petals start to bloom

Spring time warmth in flight!

It’s New England, what can I say?

Don’t like the weather, just wait a day!

Four seasons in a week

Leaf changing colors at its peak

Hot, warm, cold to the bone

Its a New England style home.

Written by Catherine Mellen ⚘

A Society’s Truth…

The Oceans so wide, a Forever land of sea…
This Earth of ours, created for you & me!
Drugs are an Epidemic, an everyday news brief…
Laws made to abide, instead only cause grief!
And being offended, it happens on every street…
A new way of being, with every person you meet!
