A Poem I Had To Share

My cousin, Jon Curran, takes awesome photos. He's starting his own photography business, and I not only ordered this photo for my wall, but posted it on Facebook. Aw, the power of a photo. The lovely Jennifer Don was inspired to write a poem. I was so moved, I had to share them both. I hope you enjoy them.

In winter's hand, the canopy removed

A burst of light uncovers food

Fleeting trails lay spread across the ground 

While what's hidden remains alert for sound 

Near a path so worn, the trees they sing 

Songs of old and tales of the king 

Weave endlessly in winters hold 

Where no man ventures unless they be bold.

Jennifer spent many years without daring to lift a pen, without writing a word that wasn’t forced. But 2008 arrived and with it, her love of writing. She began with poetry which quenched her thirst to begin with but soon that wasn’t enough to satisfy her. 2011 arrived with a dream to write her first novel – Awakening, which is on-going. November saw her attempt her first NaNoWriMo, and so Timber Varden was born, with the bulk of it being written within that month. Now she finds herself aiming to re-write that draft and turn it into her first published novel.
