Back at my desk

Over the last few months I've been consumed with finishing my novel The Knight. Then, I left for India and South Africa to teach writing and speaking.


Lots going on. I'll fill you in more now that I'm back at my desk again. For now, a poem that I found while going through some of my writing from a few years ago.

More soon...

The word-heat of your story
causes blisters on my eyes.
I’m seared into a new way of seeing.
Of being.
Of dreaming.

I can’t touch the page anymore
or my fingers might just
burst into love and
grow scars that look like yours.

Whenever I close my Bible,
steam presses out of the cover.

Sounds like you've been really busy! I hope it was all amazing and look forward to hearing more from you.

I found your book "Story" a month or two ago and God used it to change my life. Just yesterday a friend told me about this blog, and I'm so glad and grateful that he did. Great poem! Greetings and blessings to you and your family!
