Poetic Musings

Posted by

Yes, I am adding more words steadily to From the Ashes.

Here are some poetic musings from my day.


 Silence shattering
Silver lightning descending.
The bite of the night.


 Silence shattering.
Broken glass on the pavers.
Spoils found in the night.

The Beast

 Fallen is the Sun.
The moon’s rise begun.
My heart is taken.
It’s time to Awaken.
I am forsaken.
Here the beast comes.
Night, oh how it hums.
Run now, my friends.
Beware of dead-ends.
The hunter descends.


 Standing on the edge, looking out.
The #night overflows with self-doubt.
My life stuck on a roundabout.
I mustn’t be a layabout.
It’s time to move.
I have to disprove
Times come to improve.
I’m in the groove.

If you would like to look at some of my other publications, here they are.

If you could leave a review when you are finished reading any of these, that would be a great help. Reviews help me to know your thoughts and help others know if a book is for them. Thank you.

Account of the Change Series:

Swell: Jake thought he knew what he was getting into when he moved to Japan. But destiny has other ideas and as the Swell draws near, no one is safe. Beware teacups, and adapt or die, because it is a brave new world out there and it will just as soon eat you as save you. Myths and Legends, new and old, are back to play, so keep your friends close and your Tanuki closer because you’re going to need all the help you can get if you plan to survive.

Swell: A New Beginning: Sometimes new beginnings are actually old. Aida Kyoko thought she knew who she was and what she was going to do with her life. But when she catches wind of what is to come, her life is forever changed as she travels through the changed world that she tried to warn everyone was coming. With the aid of friends and plucky family, can she survive the demands of this new world and find her place in it?   

Swell: A Different Path: When Mick Renalds packed his bags and left for Japan, he thought he was rid of his old life, but some people are destined to walk a Different Path. As much as Mick would like to live the quiet life, Destiny has something else in mind and Mick is just the man for the Job. As the world turns upside down, the real monsters are out to play, and only Mick can stand in their way.
