I did this first one as a way of illustrating that fear some have of darkness and the sounds within.
Watching eyes, listening ears. Mouths aghast, more to fear. The door swung open, the light switched on. All our worries are past and gone.
With this one I had the News Broadcasts Channels and Newspapers in mind. It has always fascinated me that only on Christmas Day do they carry happy news. I wonder if we would all change our outlook on each other if more happiness was spread.
Lies and fear are what we are fed, to keep us worried and full of dread. If truth was the manner on which we could feast, could life be easier and panic cease?
I was at work today and thought of those who have paid tens of millions of pounds to live at the top of the “Shard’ in London. It is a towering, narrow shaped glazed building often with the very top shrouded by cloud.
Heads in clouds, millions they pay. To keep their lives far away. From those that walk the streets below. With doubts and problems as they flow through life’s mystic and the hand of fate that dealt the cards and sealed their hate.
About Daniel Kemp
Daniel Kemp is a seventy-four-year-old member of The Society of Authors. He is also a bestselling writer. He writes stories that appeal to those who like challenging themselves to solve mysteries that are set out before their eyes.
His introduction to the world of espionage and mystery happened at an early age when his father was employed by the War Office in Whitehall, London, at the end of WWII. However, it wasn’t until after his father died that he showed any interest in anything other than himself!
On leaving academia he took on many roles in his working life: a London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver, but never did he plan to become a writer. Nevertheless, after a road traffic incident left him suffering from PTSD and effectively—out of paid work for four years, he wrote and self-published his first novel —The Desolate Garden.
Within three months of publication, that book was under a paid option to become a $30 million film. The option lasted for six years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company.
All ten of his novels are now published by Next Chapter Publishing Company which has added an edition titled The Heirs And Descendants Collection, which holds all four books of that series, alongside an edition titled The Lies And Consequences Collection which contains all four volumes of that series.
He is the recipient of rave reviews from a prestigious Manhattan publication and described as—the new Graham Green—by a highly placed executive of Waterstones Books, for whom he did a countrywide tour of book signing events. He has also appeared on 'live' television in the UK publicising his first novel.
He likes to write quotes and it's on Goodreads where you can find them--- https://www.goodreads.com/quotes/list/72612151 An example of these quotes opens his novel--Once I Was A Soldier:--There is no morality to be found in evil. But to recognise that which is truly evil one must forget the rules of morality.
