Pathways is a collection of poems linked by the theme of journey. The language is in American and British English in a variety of classical and modern styles of verse.
The beautiful ornament above inspired my poem in the collection called The Goose Girl.
In his American lecture The Decorative Arts, which I read in Wilde’s Complete Works by Harper Collins, Oscar Wilde advised his audience to appreciate art in the home.
In his lecture Wilde made a case for the artisan who uses his artistic skills to create decorations round doors and fireplaces for example.
I followed his advice about looking at this kind of art in the home with an appreciative eye. However, my eyes kept falling back to this pottery piece and a narrative poem formed in my mind.
I have also written a comedy novel for children May, Magic and Moonlight which puts a modern spin on the popular English classic Dick Whittington. For more information see https://www.facebook.com/MayMagicAndMoonlight.
I also have audio books of both books. The tracks includes music and songs. You can listen to Dick’s Song, King Rat’s Groove or an instrumental Mrs Pussycat.
I recommend http://www.bandcamp.com to writers who wish to create audiobooks.
