Nature’s Gold is free 18 -20 September


If you like poetry, why not download Nature’s Gold for free on Friday 18 -Sunday 20 September 2015 from Amazon Kindle here.
I love writing and reading poetry. Yesterday I was reading Tennyson’s Lady of Shalott – such a tragic and moving story, beautifully told.
Remember all my books are free on Kindle Unlimited and if you wanted a hard copy of this poetry book , it’s just £5.
Here’s a couple of poems as a taster. The first sad and the second happy. Whatever your mood…..

Leap of Life

What leap of life has led us here
to this unseemly place;
to scrabble in the debris
of all that we once were?

Now your voice is flat and bored
where once it straddled high and low,
full of joy and interest
of all we shared together.

What I would give to jump through time
to twenty years ago,
to feel your warm hand in mine
and never want another.

But the future seems a trial,
for us both to endure,
as love becomes elusive,
in joined entangled lives.

Twelve Dusky Pink Roses

Twelve dusky pink roses held in her hand,
white princess dress swishes the floor.
The beautiful bride now stands by her man;
they’re pledging their love evermore.

He stands tall and true, smart in his suit,
her “diamond” tiara catches the light.
They look at each other with love in their eyes.
We’re all part of this happy sight.

Here’s family and friends of this loving pair
and flower girl walks by the bride.
Two rings exchanged as a promise of love.
Dads and mums bursting with pride.

Today’s the first day of the rest of their lives.
It’s not just a significant day.
It marks the joining of two families,
who’ll help them both all the way.

Twelve dusky pink roses held in her hand,
white princess dress swishes the floor.
The beautiful bride now stands by her man.
They’re declaring their love evermore.

This poem was originally written for my daughter’s wedding.
