Writing - A Happy and Prosperous 2015

I began this poem almost exactly one year ago.


A New Year begins once again
more days to live through.
Challenges to confront and overcome.
Twelve more months and 52 weeks.
Days long and short, dark and light.
Hopefully a time to be lived in peace
and one's prosperity increased a might.

The years roll on with increased rapidity
age advances in parallel.
Appreciate time with family.
Children grow into adults and parents
Time flies as if on the wings of a swift
Your own powers settle with experience
The joy of offspring gives the lift. 

A rare and satisfying occurrence.

As life barrels along age slows but excitement drives
never-ending events that seem to come with every breath.
A new life is due and soon, another offspring boon.

A small review

I've had a very busy publishing year. There have been two novels and a collection of poetry.

 A 6th Steele story - Castled 
  and then published this month Earth plc                                                     

Finally, the poetry.

Don't be shy click to buy.

One of my hobbies is to watch films and I've seen some good stuff this year. There are three that I believe worthy of mention.

Edge of Tomorrow

Starring Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt

A futuristic adventure with elements of Groundhog Day which may seem a strange combination but it works. 


Starring Scarlett Johanssen

A computer in human gun toting form or a human taken over by human frailty.

The Imitation Game

Starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley.

A tale based upon the life of Alan Turing and his efforts to decipher the information sent by the Hitler Enigma encryption machine. If there was any justice in the world we wouldn't log on to a computer but a Turing!
As things go I believe that this exceptionally good film could be cast in the shadows by the release of The Theory of Everything which promises to be a very good dramatisation of the life of Steven Hawking.

Best wishes and thank you to all those who have taken the time to read my blogs, books and poetry and a happy and prosperous New Year to all.

God Bless
