In the years since publishing Fragments and Reflections, I have self-published two further collections of poetry: Nooks and Dark Corners and Sunsets and Long Shadows. Find them on Amazon or – if you want to support independent writing and publishing – Lulu.
This mist makes ghosts of the drifting days,
Shrouding hill and cliff and cove with pale indifference;
On the shoreline, faint shadows gather in small worlds,
Framed by blank horizons and a white line of surf,
Just apparent in this strange eradication.
Somewhere, above and beyond the levelling murk,
A vain sun blazes at the creaking sea,
Taunting it with windborne lies of endless sunshine.
Your poetry is so moving and evocative. I am ordering the two books I haven’t gotten around to ordering tomorrow.
Everyone has dry spells and then, rather like a hurricane swirling dervishly out at sea, the words eventually hit the land of the mind and heart. Bringing no destruction but the elation of creativity and soothing any devastation.
Thank you, Liz. Much appreciated! 🙂
