Some of these poems reflect darker and sadder aspects of life as we experience it. Such feelings are given prominence in 'Goodbye My Friend', 'I Shall Not Return', and 'Centre of My Universe', whilst 'My Light, My World' was indeed occasioned by the recent passing of the author's beloved wife and soulmate. But this feeling is tempered by the anticipatory themes of 'Exodus' and 'Awakening' whilst the theme of love, in its various forms, is also recorded.
A Road So Travelled is an entrancing mixture of autobiography and travel articles, fully illustrated with photographs, and covering 9 decades of the 20th and 21st centuries. This autobiographical book includes the authors memoirs of his childhood as an evacuee with family in South Wales, and later boarding at Ely School, and many travel articles from later life, including to Singapore, across Canada in a motorhome convoy, a coach tour of Italy from top to toe, a visit to Turkey, including the site of Troy, taking the Pilgrim Route to Compostela, and visiting Eastern Germany.
A cottage in the woods. Rumours of a witch. And two curious teenage girls, eager to get to the bottom of the mystery. Behind the door of the cottage lies a whole other world. But as the girls dig deeper, dark secrets from the past rise up to challenge what had begun to seem a delightful new adventure.
As far as Nicholas Farraway is concerned, his first year and a bit of death has been a distinct disappointment; as is Heaven itself. He has so many questions: such as why are angels so arrogant; Why are there no children; and why does he work in surveillance if G-d is supposedly all-seeing?
The poems in Million Miles Away address the eternal themes of love, nature, religion, despair, and occasionally the poet's favourite, insomnia. But they do so with a unique voice, both Indian and modern, creating a blend that is manifestly different from poetry in Europe and the Americas. Beautifully illustrated with photographs by Sanuj Goswami.
Phoenix is a collection of over 60 poems by Grey Wolf, covering a quarter century of writing. Most are illustrated with beautiful photographs from around the United Kingdom, including many taken in the picturesque Swansea Valley, as well as others from the North of Scotland.
The body of work in this book is meant to represent the journey of life: from birth where everything seems so fresh and innocent, to the coming of age , then transitioning into adulthood, where the meaning of life is explored in depth, then comes the golden age, and finally, the cycle comes full circle with death.
