Seascapes and Serenity Lost

poetry is nearer to reality than is the unadorned truth

Both the kindle and print versions of my poetry anthology Seascapes and Serenity Lost are now available on Amazon.  Trust me, the 8 x 10 paperback edition will look fabulous on your coffee table.

I must pay tribute to Jan Olandese who did all the hard work of editing and formatting both editions.

The one review I think I’ve received thus far is pretty damn positive.

Some of the stuff I’ve written is more than brutally truthful.

Tunes on Tuesday ~ Paperback Writer

poetry is a equal mixture of English and angst

The printed version of my poetry anthology Seascapes and Serenity Lost should be available on Amazon within the next couple of hours.  It’s a 10 by 8 inches, magazine-sized, paperback.  So, I thought this old Beatles song would be rather fun.

There’s also a much cheaper kindle version of the book.

Of course the paperback will look great on your coffee table.

Poetry Anthology

Seascapes and Serenity Lost

~

You can probably learn more about me by reading some of my poetry anthology than you could ever learn from anything I ever posted on here ~ and I have promulgated some gritty and very personal stuff.

Anyhow, my anthology is now available on Amazon, in several important countries, including the US, UK, and points east.  (For some good reasons, for the next few days the print copy is ‘author only’)

The words and pictures are all my own work, and there are a lot of photographs interleaved with the poetry.

I am also deeply indebted to Jan Olandese, who edited the whole thing.

the shining sea

talks with me

it’s a miracle

the impossible I can do immediately ~ miracles take a little longer

~

it’s a miracle

oceans apart

and yet we’re

so connected

isn’t anything

we cannot do

isn’t anything

I wouldn’t do

to be with you

not a fantasy

not dreaming

me loving you

Dreams and Seascapes

there’s nothing better than walking on the beach
witnessing the dawn come up like thunder across the bay

~

haunting music of the wind

wave counterpointed, pink sky echoed

frames the seascape bowl with solitary figure walking

against a challenged world struggling

changing, but ever the same

a winter’s dawn

over a wine-dark sea

Her Smile

just like those remembered days when the dawn sang

~

then quite suddenly I see

if you smile, not just for me

the world is a lovelier place

those tears have disappeared

all that sadness has vanished

the old songs never did end

and we walk again by the sea

remembering the you I adored

I must go down to the sea again ~ to the lonely sea and the sky

Scenes on Sunday ~ the rocks and the water

if it wasn’t for the rocks, the water would have no music

Dreams of Inner Peace

Hold infinity in your soul, and eternity in your dreams

~

haunting music of the wind, wave counterpointed, kaleidoscope echoed

wildly framed the seascape bowl with solitary figure slowly walking

alone against a world struggling, changing but ever the same

men, mankind, tide, and time change

but the sea is the ever the same
