It’s excerpt week again over at The Write Stuff, where writers are encouraged to share snippets of their work and readers can hopefully find their next read. It’s a great community for book lovers and definitely worth heading over for a look.
With some friendly nudging from Marcia I’m finally getting round to adding my voice to another great excerpt week. I have three works available – two novels and a poetry collection – and thought I’d share a quick snippet from each.
Let’s start with a poem from Seeking Solace, entitled Goodbye.
Goodbye Mr Tiger,
your eyes they burned so bright.
I’ll think of all their golden charm
when I close my own at night.
Goodbye Mr Elephant,
so mighty, the ground it shook.
I’ll keep alive your memory
when I read my storybook.
Goodbye Mr Leopard,
so stealthy and so shy.
I wish it didn’t end this way,
I wish you did not die.
Goodbye Mother Nature,
so generous, so pure.
I don’t blame you for leaving us,
we’re sick and there’s no cure.
Goodbye fellow human,
I guess I’ll be alone.
