Tahoe Queen


Tahoe Queen

In the footsteps of Clemens
A path now well trod
Astride a mountain
Before a lake so pure

A Tahoe Queen
In Zephyr Cove
A paddle steamer
Thoughts of Twain

Distant Mountains
On the opposite shore
Snow peaked caps
A beauty so raw

Gentle waves
Lash the shore
A crescent cove
A sandy beach

Dogs playing chicken
With incoming waves
Crazy cold water
Crazy fool dogs

Firs and pines
About the beach
The sound of waves
One’s ears do reach

Shining water
Clear as crystal
A translucent blue
And trees of green

Summer sun
Winter snow
At 7000ft
Nestled between the peaks

A collection of poetry celebrating the beauty of the random. There is no thematic link to these poems, they touch upon almost any subject that crossed the author’s mind in the moment. They were born from a series of journal notes made over the course of a number of months. This collection is an eclectic mix of poems and range from love poetry to landscapes, children, paranormal, science and technology, and animals, with a lot of other topics thrown in for good measure.

More Reading Progress

So, I have been rather preoccupied lately, and have been noticeably absent from WordPress. For this I apologise to one and all. I promise I will post something more interesting shortly, but for now, more reading progress, since I have still been reading, naturally. I have recently finished Robert Louis Stevenson’s, ‘Treasure Island’, and Mark Twain’s, ‘The Adventures of Tom Sawyer’.  These are two books that I am ashamed to admit that I had never read before. I enjoyed both immensely. No idea why I haven’t got to them long before now.

I am also currently reading a book by Alana Muir, ‘An American Guide to Britishness’. I am struggling with this. It seems designed to be a sort of guide to differences between British and American usage of different terms, but appears to me to be more a vehicle for bashing the British, although the definition of pissed is pretty good. I am also reading ‘The Faceless One’ by Mark Onspaugh, which I am nearly finished and shall be putting up a review on, shortly.

I am sure you will all be very proud of me, either that or not really give a shit, but each one these books is being read as an ebook using the kindle app on my tablet. It is great., I love being able to see what percentage I am up to.

So, sorry this is such a short post, but I am working on it.
