The Ancient Battle

The red beating of the heart and soul

Amidst the green, green meadows

Brings the warriors to battle–strong, determined, whole

Lurking in the early morn as mere hints of living shadows

Whispers of unheard footsteps gliding o’er wet fields of dew

Startled breaths gasped in hollowed throats

Then soldiers’ war cries on the clearing air flew

Scrambling from long-ships and skimming wee boats

Approach the shores of doom

The aftermath a blazing fire in the sun rays hiding the gloom

    1. So good to hear from you, Robert! I’ve been wrapped up in finishing my 8th book, “Annie’s Story, Blessed With A Gift”. Finally! Should be an eBook on amazon in a matter of hours? The 6×9 is done, but still in pre-launch. We did a nonprofit, fundraiser which went amazingly well. When is your next book due out?

      1. That is some awesome news, I’m so happy for you! I have actually just started on a novel project here on WP and am hoping to complete it through 2017. My resolution. Hugs for you.
