RICHIE ROBERTS, ANDY, HANDO, KIM, AND A FASCINATING NEW
RUSSELL-BASED CHARACTER, TRAVIS McGEE
On Starting a New Story in Winter
I am a slug in my comfortable stretchable clothes
I watch the street from my window, neighbors coming and going
I am content and on my desk is a rose
And that rose takes me places I am knowing
In my mind. From my fingertips the words flow,
Knitting together words of love and places Iíve not been
Except in my imagination. Come with me now
To that sea island to the sand, sea and wind
Where my imagination has taken me without remorse
Away from the cold and leafless trees Iíve set my course.
Heís there now just off shore. Iíve glimpsed the white
Of his sails, the tall masts and the deck where he stands.
He does not know me yet but he will as I write
His coming to my adopted lands.
