To my surprise I am in. My muse has been absent a lot lately and then out of nowhere I had the kernel of an idea. Likely it is a bit obscure and the reference to the theme maybe a tad indirect but if anyone is interested to know what is going on, I will be happy to share when voting is done and dusted (to stay within the rules).

Blown the dust off the keyboard (and my brain-box) to get back in the mix this month.

Been an age, but forgot how good it is to fire up the noggin' and have a wee go at these writing challenges
I'm in. I had an idea for an opening line early in the month, seeing the blackthorn blossom, and thinking about the white flowers falling on a grave. But I couldn't get the story to gel, too many others had the same idea of marching off to war or similar, and I thought we were probably all depressed enough without me adding to it. So, after pondering for a brief moment a Little Women in space story** I went for something in honour of @HareBrain.

** the March sisters, in case anyone doesn't get it.
Wow, many thanks @Christine Wheelwright for the vote. My first time sharing poetry, not my favourite way of telling a story but your support is greatly, splendidly appreciated :giggle:.

Thanks too for the shortlist, @worldofmutes

For my shortlist...
  • Mad As by The Judge
  • Project Meeting(s) at Temporal Research Labs Inc. by mosaix
  • Why is a Raven Like a Writing Desk by Victoria Silverwolf
But my vote is for Quincember 34th: Spring Equinox by @Peter V . Whatever this world away from Earth is you created, they seem to be enjoying it. Glad they bought some traditions with them.

I also had a colleague wish me a Happy Vernal Equinox recently, so something to vaguely relate to.

Vernal Equinox? Does he play for Spurs?
