It has been about two months since my first self-published book of poetry had came out! To my surprise, I have sold 14 copies and 9 yet remain! Interested? If you live outside the area I can mail it to you but if you live in the Canton, OH area I can deliver it to you personally! Send me a private message if you are interested! Here is something to hold you over:
The Lanes We Walked
A table that is set for you and me
feels the void of your presence.
Morning’s tea once was steaming
but now it’s beginning to cool.
The lanes we walked are vacant,
the times we had are gone,
and the place we were is empty
as the years go dragging on.
The room that warmly welcomed you
and the lodge that testifies
insists that you had left too soon
now that leaves begin to die.
A field of green where you once tread
beckons for your return.
The tales we heard now lay dead
next to the embers that used to burn.
