A Silver Lining.

I sit alone in a silent cloud,

My words to weave when allowed,

Reflecting on the life that I have spent

And in all the ways to me it has meant.

I have passed by chances, leaving them behind,

Only to discover others of a different kind.

Most have been helpful, some not so,

But through them all I had to go.

Now I come upon a time

When solitude is a friend of mine.

I seek that cloud with a welcoming embrace.

I can hide and find happiness within that space.

How long is a span of time? How many clouds have a silver line?

How many doors must one pass through, before life has done its best for you?

The Desolate Garden


About Daniel Kemp

Daniel Kemp, ex-London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver never planned to be a writer, but after his first novel —The Desolate Garden — was under a paid option to become a $30 million film for five years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company what else could he do? Nowadays he is a prolific storyteller and in May 2018 his book What Happened In Vienna, Jack? became a number one bestseller on four separate Amazon sites: America, UK, Canada and Australia. Although it’s true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows best; murders laced by the mystery involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the short stories he writes, namely: Why? A Complicated Love, and the intriguing story titled The Story That Had No Beginning. He is the recipient of rave reviews from a prestigious Manhattan publication, been described as —the new Graham Green — by a managerial employee of Waterstones Books, for whom he did a countrywide tour of signing events, and he has appeared on ‘live' television in the UK.
