Surrender.

Wind dwells the dusk far Into perishable hours Frail, the light enriches Darkness in the world. The voice in sweet cities, Sleeping in dim snow. Surrender beneath The universe in this room; A flower, a dream Will lie crisp Softly with hidden laughter Summoning pure sleep.

Mark Borne Nexus: NaNoWriMo Novel

“‘Tis the season to be inspired…” You know what, that song doesn’t work here. But you know what does? Writing tips! And the quote drives us to our first of ten!
