Now available: 'Stones in the Road: Poems of Grief and Growth'

Hi, friends. 



I hope this post finds you well. This week has been very significant for me, as I've just released my first poetry e-book. Rather than jump into the 'river' that is Amazon publishing and formatting, I decided to compile it myself. 



The pieces in the book are those which I had difficulty placing through traditional means, and eventually tired of trying. Fortunately, the 'tiring of trying' coincided with recovery from the experiences which prompted the bulk…

Be My Colours

Blooming blue gliding in river flow,

Arc into my arrow and bow.

Perky pink flowers in fairy-land,

I want wear you as my band.

Yummy yellow in sweet lime,

Set into my alarming chime.

Rusty Red locked in caution light,

Shhh… all escape with my kite flight.

White, you have no time to fade,

So be on my doors…

Am all i can be!

I wither within a day but...

My spread-colors are treat to 
someone’s eyes.
My aroma refreshes
someone’s breath.
My two-step dance at road side brightens
someone’s path
My medicinal petals heal 
someone's disease.
And
Am all i can be...!

Podcasts allow writers to reach ears around the world through their MP3 player earbuds. Recent years have seen the proliferation of video “trailers” for poetry collections. Expanding on the trailer should be an easy next step as writers can either collaborate with experienced filmmakers, or take advantage…
