Puddles of reflection are like mirrors to the mind.
Images left behind you with their view redefined.
A canopy of cover, a buffer to the pain.
Puddles of reflection rippling in the rain.

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.
Lovely Danny. I have been so busy lately that I have not had a chance to visit with you and I do apologize for that. The summer brings my grandmotherly duty of watching my grand daughters on a daily basis and the two year old is a spit fire. She will be going to day care starting next week now that she is old enough so I will only be watching her sister who is 9, and she is a pleasure.
Hopefully I can squeeze some time for writing and visiting blogs, enjoying the offerings, and, most of all get some reading in. I have not had the time to finish reading about Jack in months. Don’t get me wrong I love my grands to pieces, but I am not as young as I used to be and there energy level wears me out. Still I look forward to getting time for myself again. I will be back. Keep well and keep looking for me here. :o)
I know what it means to look after grandchildren, Patricia, and how strength sapping that can be. I have to find time to write nowadays between all the demands here where I’m living and with my health. As I think I’ve said in the past I love to write, but somehow all the other things that life throws at us gets in the way. You look after yourself otherwise, I’ll have no one to write for!
I will always be here Danny, I look forward to read your offerings daily and you always make me smile. Thank you. :o)
love this and perfect for my situation right now –
I’m pleased it pleased you!
Love this, Danny
Thank you, Onisha! That’s kind of you.
