A Life In Rhyme – Life’s Observations: Rhyming Verse and Story Poems

by Jean Shaw

A Life In Rhyme – Life’s Observations is the fourth book in a collection of rhyming story poems I’ve written over a period of years.

None of them were initially written for book publication, but I have received such encouragement from friends and family about them, I’ve decided to compile the verses into four different titles.

Book 4 introduces you to story poems I’ve written about events in my life and random observations, together with some of the rhyming verse included in the other books I’ve written.

I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoyed writing them.

A Blended Bouquet: An Anthology by Writers Inc

by Mark Rice

A Blended Bouquet contains poetry and prose from thirteen of Scotland’s most innovative writers. From the beat poetry of James Pettigrew to the Scots stylings of Robert Hume, it is clear that the spirit of Robert Burns is alive, well and infusing members of Writers Inc with inspiration. Originally published in paperback form in Homecoming year, a quarter-millennium after the birth of Burns, this anthology carries on the bard’s legacy of writing from the heart. The diverse contents explore the whole spectrum of human experience: loss, love, longing, family, friendship, hope, prophecy, despair, dreams and much more. Some pieces are fierce and fearless, others poignant and profound. All the writing in A Blended Bouquet has one thing in common: it’d make the bard Burns smile, safe in the knowledge that his job is done.


by Jaspreet Mann Kanwar

Jaspreet Mann Kanwar’s second collection of poems, Flashback, first published by Sanbun Publishers, New Delhi, in 2011, offers a distilled essence of life. These poems analyze complex themes of life, love, human nature, personal loneliness, nostalgia, frustration, hope, hopelessness and death. Flashback on the whole comprises of gentle nostalgic verses that are self-reflective meditations on life as the title itself suggests.

My love is stronger

by Varville Scott

An anthology of triolets on the subject of love in all its different aspects not just the sweeter side.

If it’s a question indeed
Of my love that you shyly ask,
Then to where shall the answer lead
If it’s a question! in deed
And words I have shown there’s no need,
For I am equal to any task,
If it’s a question indeed
Of my love that you shyly ask.

To receive a love if only please.”

Wolves of the Sapphire Sun: Sans Erotica

by C. JoyBell C.

Unleashed, sacred, otherworldly, palpable and serene. This one’s for the wild ones. The black sheep, the lost ones, the found ones, the ones who are loved, the unforgotten ones. This one’s for the wild ones.

Designed to be read and pondered upon as a “novel-made-out-of-poems”, these pages will call you into certain depths and ask you to connect the dots wherever there are open spaces. You are impelled to feel and to think. And to chew on this paper until it runs through your veins.

This book does not contain the erotica found in the original version.
