Both Nature’s Gold and Autumn Gold are free this weekend, 15 – 17 April 2016 on Amazon (Kindle versions).
This poetry covers a wide range of topics and styles. These poems are written to stir thoughts, but mostly for fun. Here’s one of the poems.
Dark and light.
Good and evil.
Achievement and shame.
Happiness and despair.
These are life’s great challenges.
Enjoy each opportunity.
Savour both hope and disappointment.
Open your heart to all the future holds.
All my books are permanently free on Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited and if you pay for a paperback copy of any of my books, then the ebook is free.
If anyone would like to leave a review that would be lovely. I hope you enjoy the poetry.
Gerald couldn’t believe his eyes. The skeleton he’d unearthed was like none he’d ever seen. In fact it was incredible. Carefully e removed the red earth to expose more of the whitened bones. The lower half of the skeleton was particularly delicate.
At regular intervals he poked his head up and checked no-one was watching. This find would make him rich. His friends, if you could call them that, would stop laughing at his ‘little hobby’. He’d be world famous. Gerald Farthing, architect extraordinaire; finder of the unique skeleton. He could see himself being invited to universities to explain why he’d decided to dig there.
He was so engrossed with his musings that he failed to register the delicate Gaelic music seeping into his head. The music was exquisite, hypnotic, even spiritual.
Gently he started to caress the smooth bones. They felt like silk to his roughened hands. The music drew him down and he curled his body around the skeleton.
Suddenly he was drowning in a sea of earth, which piled deeper and deeper over him.
Gerald had held his dream fleetingly for a moment but no-one ever knew that he’d discovered the bones of a mermaid.
The floor board creaked
but no-one was there.
I heard a foot step
on the winding stair.
The fierce wind whistled
through the broken pane,
and a tree branch tapped
on the weather vane.
He said he’d meet me,
but I stood alone.
A spirit loomed.
Blank eyes met my own.
Why were we meeting
in a lonely place?
I saw a shadow
of a twisted face.
I ran to exit
through the open door,
aware my one love
wanted me no more.
