What’s in the box?
by Martin Shone
Here, let me show you 🙂
Yes I have published a collection of Little Thoughts
from my Silence Happens site.
I have self-published through Lulu.com
I have edited some and added a good handful
of new and unpublished Little Thoughts.
Now Lulu seemed very confusing to me at first
until, that is, assistance appeared in the form
of my very, very good friend, Diane M. Denton
who also helped with the editing.
(Please visit Diane’s site for lovely art and exquisite poetry.
Her Novel ‘A House Near Luccoli’ is literary historical fiction set in Genoa
imagining an intimacy with the 17th century composer. Alessandro Stradella.)
My wonderful, wonderful, lovely friend, Sarah Whiteley
gave me the encouragement, and still does,
to get off my backside and get something into print.
(Please visit Sarah’s site for her beautiful poetry and stunning photography.
Her first chapbook No Direction But Home
is worth every second of time spent reading it.)
I would like to thank everyone who has been with me
since I started writing poetry in August 2011
If you could see the smile on my face as I type these words
“I did it! I finally did it!”
