Between dusk and dawn Breezes murmur in secret shade Winding sweet harmony Through ancient earth’s Wild sanctuary. Forests rain roses And night is beautiful Beneath a soft, sacred moon. Shining light on love, You give me life.

Good Morning from Hereford
Today we started off with a very misty morning, the field was almost invisible and the trees like tall ghostly creatures lurking in the shadows. I could not resist snapping an image and putting my thoughts upon it. Let me know what you think.
OK so whilst typing this & catching up on social media the sun has now come along and burnt away the mist it is a beautiful sunny afternoon. Enjoy 🙂

My current W.I.P. is a book of Poetry & Prose, I hope to get it printed in time for the first UK Indie Literary Festival being held in Bradford, UK in July 2016. There are some wonderful Indie Authors appearing and I would say there will probably be something there for everyone. The authors write across most genre. Click UK Indie Lit Fest above to be taken to their web page.
So back to my WIP the book will consist of a couple of my short stories the main feature being ‘One Breath ~ A Short Story’ I won second prize for in ‘The Daily Bookworm’ competition 2014. It is available as a download but I want to have it available in a print format too. Here is a little teaser from ‘One ~ Breath’
Also a sample of my poetry I hope it makes you smile?

Hello well I thought I would keep you up to date with my CampNaNoWriMo progress. I have already reached my word target of 10,00 but I still have more in me (when I am not off on a tangent doing research then I’m lost for the day).
So just to remind you I am doing the NaNo challenge to discipline myself into writing particularly trying to finish two short stories that I want to include in my forth coming book ‘Rainbows & Roses ~ Poetry & Prose’
I finished my 1st story ‘No Words Exchanged’ see earlier teaser, and now am working on ‘The Birth of Grandfather Time’. This is all about a clock maker in the 16th Century whom Old Father Time admires greatly, then in his passing his wish is granted to watch over and protect his family for all time. His soul is immortalised within a longcase clock.
Historical Fact –
‘The longcase clock changed to become known as the more popular ‘Grandfather Clock’ after a famous song written by Henry Clay Work 1876. The story goes that whilst the American was visiting North Yorkshire he stayed at The George Hotel who had a longcase clock that although majestic and beautiful was not in working order. It had belonged to The Jenkins Brothers and when the 1st died the clock began to slow down. When the second died the clock finally stopped altogether never to go again.’
‘My grandfather’s clock was too large for the shelf,
So it stood ninety years on the floor;
It was taller by half than the old man himself,
Though it weighed not a pennyweight more.
It was bought on the morn of the day that he was born,
And was always his treasure and pride;
But it stopp’d short– never to go again–
When the old man died.
The following video is the inspiration behind the story
So I only managed 391 words today as I kept on changing my mind about different paragraphs. Here is a little teaser but please not it is only a rough selection it will most definitely need a good editing.
Thank you for dropping by, any comments welcomed.
