Becoming a published author is a dream come true – and it is also a little frightening. In my poem below I try to put into words my feelings.
Today I glow
My seeds unleashed take on new form in others eyes
Pages now exposed burst into life
The embryo fashioned in my mind becomes real
Figments of my imagination live afresh, are reshaped.
Loved, loathed, laughed at, they rise,
Explain their problems, tell their stories.
Today I glow, as from the page my child is born.
