This is an example of a poetic form I invented back in high school: three quatrains where the odd-numbered lines are in iambic tetrameter, the even-numbered lines are in iambic trimeter, and the end rhymes go abac/bcba/cacb. I call it a thorn 'cause supposed to be just a little bit stabby.
If you're looking for more stories by me, may I suggest my two new novels? Morning, Noon & Night, inspired by the current My Little Pony cartoon show, has all the talking animal swashbuckling adventure you can shake a stick at if that's your idea of fun, while Neighbors tells the story of a young man with a degenerative neurological condition who discovers that he can now communicate with animals. And there's always the option of visiting my Amazon Author page, too. I've got about a dozen of my previously published short stories for sale over there.
I also have the twelfth story about Cluny the Sorceress Squirrel, a thing called "Authority Figures," is available right now in vol. 31 of Marion Zimmer Bradley's Sword & Sorceress anthology, and at long, long last--15 years in the making!--Rat's Reputation, the novel that the publisher is calling a "companion volume" to my first book, The Blood Jaguar, is available for purchase! Woot, I say! Great steaming platefuls of woot!
I've also discovered that the nice people at Blogspot have one of them fancy RSS feeds. So you can subscribe to it and have links to the latest Terebinth pages delivered right to your virtual doorstep twice a week. The URL to add to your RSS reader--or whatever it is you use--is http://hyniof.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default?alt=rss, and thanks to the guys over in The Webcomic List Forums for making me think about all this. Ah, technology...
Or if you'd like to see me flail about with more technology, I've gone and gotten myself a Facebook page. I'm posting nothing but poetry there, so if you don't get enough of that with Kestrel's regular outbursts, it might be just the place for you!
I'll continue reminding you in this space about the comic I'm grinding out for the Daily Grind Webcomics Challenge-- it's called Daily Grind in case you haven't gone over to take a look. If Terebinth is where I unload the poetry rattling around in my cranium, then Daily Grind is where I unleash my inner dime novelist. Maybe even a "penny dreadful" or two whilst I'm about it.
There's things at the bottom of the page here, too: a link to the Cast Page; a link to a place where folks can comment on the pages; and, of course, the Web Counter. More comics for your perusal can be found on the Comix Link Page, and I've got an About the Author page up in case you've been wondering.
