For those of you new to this WordPress site, this site is about me and my writing – and a little about my role-playing, as well. It gives readers a chance to sample my work before purchasing it on the Kindle store; and gives me the chance to say a little about the genesis of each novel, or about the process of writing in general.
Not much to say on this post, apart from the fact that I have finished another Professor Meerschaum novel, and a poetry collection (below).
More on poetry: I have recently finished the collection Whispers and Vespers. I have already featured one poem from this collection of sixty odd poems as a taster. Here is another one: Vespers, one of the poems mentioned in the title of the work.
A bell chimes, piercing the gloaming
A summons to break the mental silence.
Garbed like crows after the carrion of your souls,
Their sandals tattoo-slap on clean-washed tiles.
Genuflection at the eventide.
Divining the mysteries of the firmament,
Looking for the spectral solitude,
The solace of deceptive truth.
The sun sets, and is gone, beyond the old stone walls.
Blueness waits to be pierced by stars.
The distant light born before the mortal invention
Of numenous and demiurgic fantasies.
The steps shuffle back, untroubled by doubt.
Tomorrow vespers will come again.
