Again, not the story I was planning to post. But another poem (which I don't normally write). BUT I wanted to post something. The piece I am actually writing now is too angry OR not angry enough. So I will wait on it. This poem is stupid.

 Fiction: Chains. Part 10. - by reckless (2813 words) - Date online (23-07-2007)
Novel Excerpts

We sat there for some time, in the early Spring sunshine, as it flooded past her floor length curtains, fluttering gently in the welcome breeze. They were genuine Bursa curtains, I was to learn later, hand woven from jute and silk. We sat chatting of this and that, surrounded by the beauty she had created with her own hands. It was one of those occasions you remember for many years afterwards, for the simplicity of it, for the hidden riches it contains, riches that you are unaware of until the passage of time reveals them slowly to you.

Sixth chapter of a novel I'm trying to write. A holiday, a disintegrating marriage, a body. Impending tragedy? I've tried using deliberately trivial dialogue here as a way of underlining tension - but does it go too far? Any feedback gratefully received.
