Black River

Take care on the road?

My eyes and ears,

are ever wary

of that scary serpent,

the perceived cruelty

of it’s nature,

breeds fears

that the years

have not spent;

and cannot erode.

It is said

all these snakes

lead to Rome,

but you are still dead,

and I cannot go home.

Lenzi the Legend

 

Delighted!  I received two recent additions to my ever growing collection of poetry from Paul F. Lenzi.  As Paul’s biggest fan across the pond, I heartily recommend reading any of this wonderful poet’s endeavours.

A prolific and pensive poet, Paul F. Lenzi has written more than twenty books, and pens a hugely popular and successful blog (https://poesypluspolemics.com/).  Paul is a keen advocate for other writers, and has long been supportive of other poets (myself included).  This man has as much love as he has talent (no small wonder, he is widely adored).

You can get a copy of Time Before Time here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Time-Before-Units-When-ebook/dp/B075YDQF2B/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1509188124&sr=8-1&keywords=paul+lenzi+time+before+time

You can get a copy of Range of Motion here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Range-Motion-Paul-F-Lenzi-ebook/dp/B00GIZQHC6/ref=sr_1_7?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1509188184&sr=1-7&keywords=paul+lenzi

And finally, I am delighted to share that Paul F. Lenzi has kindly written the ‘blurb’ for my forthcoming collection, ‘Legacy’ (of which I’ll keep you posted).

Keep smiling and keep writing, much love from Baldy.
