THOUGHT AND POEM
Written By Jeanne Claire Probst

Most times when I get ready for bed, I sit on my bed and look out my window.  There is something about nighttime that seems to help us to gather thoughts.  Thoughts about our day, the new day coming and perhaps dreams and goals we might have.  But tonight, my thoughts were on the moon and the trees that beautify the night sky…that cast their shadows on my bedroom wall.  There is a peace about this scene that I have seen many times over, even for years.  After sitting for a little while, I am ready to get in my bed, under the covers and close my eyes for the night.

What about you?  When you look up at a darkened sky at the end of your day, what does it say to you?  Share your thoughts with us…

MOON SHADOWS
Written by Jeanne Claire Probst

The moon cast its shadow on me, while I was doing some thinking,
As I sat quietly on my bed, my eyes were blinking.
I knew that soon I would be sleeping and off into dreamland,
For now though, the moonbeams had my attention, as I sat playing with my hands.

Out my window, the trees stood in the darkness before the moon’s face,
Dancing in the soft wind and doing so with grace.
They cast their shadows upon my bedroom wall,
While the moon shed her moonlight on us all.

How often I have admired this bedtime scene, me sitting on my bed, the moon, and the trees in between.
The shadows play their music as they guide me through the night,
And before I know it, the moon and the shadows are gone, and the trees are now standing in the daylight.

The Fifteen Houses, a Novel

The Fifteen Houses is the first book of this new and exciting series to be published. Staged in the beautiful and scenic palate of East Longmeadow, Massachusetts, in the early 1950’s, the main character delves into her reoccurring and discomforting memories of her younger, formative years. Searching for answers to questions that have resurfaced in her mind over and over again during her time away from her family, she seeks to find rhyme and reasons to her insecurities, anger, phobias, fears, and life’s choices. Julianne Marguerite, one of eleven children, is determined to uncover the “mystery” that resulted in the downfall of her family. As you turn the pages in the book, each series of memories, will open a different door, to the different homes, (“Fifteen” to be exact).
