I have one copy to give away to a lucky person, a signed copy by the author. “Wind & Autumn Leaves” is a lovely collection of short poems by James L Collymore. Over 35 pages of James’ collection of “Heart, Mind & Soul” words.
Poems he has written since he was 18 years old, kept close to his heart and has found that now is the time to share with the world. The three sections in the book cover the neutral, the negative, and the positive and there are over 35 poems for you to enjoy.
So many delightful words will melt off the pages as you read these in contemplation: Meditations & Observations, Wobegone, Hopeful and epilogue divide the areas of the book.
Here is just one of the poems you can expect to enjoy.
It seems as though I’ve known you
for the longest time.
And all the dreams and plans you’ve made
are slowly becoming mine
I have laughed, i have slept.
I have longed, I have wept,
for all the good thing that we’ve had,
all the secrets that you’ve kept,
But if all this should pass
into the distant tomorrows,
It will surely fill me
with infinite sorrows.
So now let my heart speak, and let yours remain still…..
As a friend I have loved you
and I hope…I always will.

"It is a joy to express my creativity and be appreciated.". An inspiring affirmation from Louise L. May in her book EXPERIENCE YOUR GOOD NOW!
"And that object became part of him for the day, or a certain part of the day, or for many years, or stretching cycles of years." – There Was a Child Went Forth by Walt Whitman. I've applied this poem to describe my believes in the chaos theory and that everything and anything leaves its mark.
oh lovely you. I recently went on a poetry walk with my son and his class at school. We walked the local common looking and listening whilst the kids wrote poems about autumn. I was so inspired I wrote my own and won a journal from the class to continue writing my poetry in – ahhh so sweet, it took me back to my own days of loving and writing poetry and I don't really do it anymore.
Thanks for sharing a lovely poem.
What a wonderful giveaway, my favorite poem is a classic: Footprints in the Sand
