Reflected Eyes

Autumn’s breath is now tasting cold
Its sharpened winds the bones do scold
Chill comes at night as the dark closes fast
And memories of summer fade into the past.

Calm dreams of days of long hot spells
With vibrant roses and the late harebells
Grass that was burnt by burning heat
That waited for rain in silent entreat.

When winter comes with snowy breath
And life is stagnant reflected in death
Mirrored in eyes in skies of blue
Can you touch them as they smile at you?

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.
