It’s Silent Here. From my granddaughter.

It’s silent here. The illuminated ball that once shone over you is being wrenched from above, leaving you alone in a lightless paradise with present peace at mind.

A bronzed blanket lay under your bare feet, as the waves ran across the shore.The warm breeze rushes past your face leaving the bitter taste of salt lingering in your mouth. Previous memories of being a young child, stumbling towards the shoreline, buckets and spades at the ready, your parents struggling to keep up. But its different now.

Abandoned. Nothing but a few seagulls in sight picking at what waste was lumbered there. Rummaging through old crisp packets, chip boxes and ice-cream cones looking forward to what they may receive.

The soothing atmosphere unwinds and tranquillises your soul, leaving you at peace with the world. Flashbacks of your youth as your weak, aged, body stumbles to the floor, slowly you let go and withdraw from this life. It’s silent here.

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 although it’s true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows most about; murders laced by the intrigue involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the short stories he compiles both for adults and children. 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.
