Autumn of life:

Autumn of life:

Trapped inside
Stifling heat
Outside freezing cold
Staring upwards
Stark white ceiling
Cracks
Jagged
Spreading
Imminent collapse
Who knows when

Sunlight glaring
Overbright
Moisture droplets
Trapped between panes
Riverlets caught
Frozen in time
Light
Playing on leaves
Rustled
By wind
Cool
Clear sky
Pale blue
Fluffy clouds

Piercing cry
Seagull’s territory
Beak jabbing
Mercilessly
Display of power
Dark
Black crow
Retreats
Flapping awkwardly

Autumn of life
For some
Just an
Everyday
Drama
For others

A further challenge (putting together a collection of my poetry)

After finishing my fourth novel ‘The Purple Queen’, I have now decided to do a poetry book.  To put all of my poetry into one place as ‘COLLECTED POEMS’.

Many of the earlier poems were included in my fantasy series of ThornRose Novels: ‘The Death Angels’ Vol 1; ‘Death? Or Glory?’ Vol 2, ‘The DeathRose’ Vol 3; and ‘The Purple Queen’ Vol 4.  More recent poems were created in 2015.

It will be good to have all of them, as a record, in one place.
