V by Jan Harris

Geese
honk their
way across
the blue sky in
perfect formation
as if they are spelling
a v-sign for nature. On
this too warm January day
when mankind has forgotten his way
omens are more comforting than science.

Jan writes poetry and short stories for adults and children, and has two novels underway that she promises herself she will finish when life slows down. One is a science fiction novel for young teens and the other is a family saga set in the 50s and 70s. Jan has had several stories and poems published in magazines, including flash fiction in Mslexia and Flashquake, and poetry in Nth Position ezine and Leaf Books’ ‘Dancing with Delsie’ anthology. She works from home as an editor for an online media company and when she isn’t shackled to a computer Jan enjoys horse riding and vegetarian cooking.

I feel that deeply.
