Margaret Simon, of Reflections on The Teche, is trying to encourage people to link up on Sundays to share some things they're doing, or learning how to do, with technology. Thanks, Margaret! I promised her I'd try something new (this is scary!), and I've figured out how to record and embed a Soundcloud.
But I can't figure out two things, so if you know the answers, please tell me in the comments. (1.) I can't embed the recording without my photo. I don't mind the photo once in a while, but every time??? (2.) And, I can't hear the recording on Safari. I can on Chrome & Firefox!
(note later-I've figured out the photo problem, & can hear the recording on sound cloud, just not here-still working on it!)
Here's the text of the poem:
The sun is thin,
It’s January after all,
and what can be expected
but wind and rain/snow mix,
a cold front flowing, sometimes
sun not even showing.
I don’t wish to walk out,
so I take ghostly steps through the rooms
from far coasts,
from high slopes.
I’m picking up memories
wandering through the rooms like years.
I don’t want to stop,
want to line them up
on the shelves instead of books.
I’ll take each one
dust them, and close the glass doors
until wintering inside takes me back again.
