Behind the Book Release

20171105_202105

GET READY, FOR A BRAND NEW ADVENTURE IN FANTASY! It’s amazing what one’s imagination can think of. I’ve had this incredible idea for a story for a long time now and I’ve finally decided to pen and publish it. This realization of getting my first real novel out there happened in 2015 when I concluded that I needed to get serious about it. What inspires me is reading other books, watching movies in different genres and just the pure love I have for the craft. Writing is my passion in life. I believe that my new
novel will give readers a great experience they’ve never had before. It will be a bold, new venture in the world of books and entertainment!

The following poem I wrote after being inspired by the beauty of the willows at Centennial Park near downtown Nashville. So, here it is, I hope you enjoy it!

 

The Song of the Weeping Willow Tree

 

Upon that wind swept hill of grass

I see my life displayed as if in glass

My eyes follow its swaying bows

Full of sadness it does me show

Some parts high some parts low

The bulk of the weeping willow

Flows with the wind’s magical rhythm

 

And as my glossy eyes behold

This beautiful sight of nature

Thoughts and memories from the past

Comes to my mind’s eye

Thoughts of my great loves

And memories of them that use to be

 

But here in nature you’ll find peace

Come dance with her loving presence

She will sooth your inner spirit

As you watch her green leaves move

She will lift your burden friend

Embrace her like a loved one

 

For she is love blessing our nature

And she wants to carry away your pain

Let her lift you to a higher plain

For this is why this tree exists

Come, come to where true love abides

Come and partake in her loving song

 

She is always ready to welcome you in

Let her leafy arms love you friend

Don’t you see her weeping?

Her tears are endless in this world

She weeps for those who are lonely

But she can sooth your inner spirit

 

Her green, leafy arms reach out for you

Her soul yearns to touch your spirit

And blanket you in her blissful love

See her dancing with the loving winds

Do you hear her calling out for you?

Her joyful song can be heard

 

All over this beautiful world

So come to where her love abides

Come and sing along with her

Enter into her paradise far from woe

She dances to the rhythm of nature

She dances to your inner song

 

Her bushy mass moves with the wind

Her many leaves rustle with bliss

She reaches for you so gently

Feel her touch your rosy cheeks

Come and dance with her branches

Come and let your spirit be free

 

She is a beacon of hope and love

She is a lighthouse guiding you in

Her branches are green and beautiful

They move with the rhythm of life

Feel her gently tugging on your heart

Can you sense her love inside of you?

 

Can you feel her love my friend?

A willow’ s love is for all of us

She yearns to comfort the downtrodden

She wants to welcome us all in

She knows your sorrow and pain

This willow understands your anguish

 

Come to where her love does not judge

Come find peace under her shade

Here in nature’s blissful love

Will your inner pain go away

Dance with her leafy branches

Embrace her with your calloused hands

 

Like her roots searching for water

So you are here to find her love

Enter into her realm of joy

And sing along with her as one

It’s time for you to know love again

It is time to hear her loving song

 

She sings like a chorus of angels

Her song is heard around the world

She lives in our hearts and imagination

She lives in the vast woods and forests

This weeping willow lives in us all

This sad tree wants to give you joy

 

Come to where her spirit lives on

Come to the outdoors and live again

She is brave and full of splendor

The willow has withstood sorrow

She’s a statue standing for what’s right

This tree is a beautiful sight

 

So sing that song with her my friend

The song of the Weeping Willow Tree

The Song of the Weeping Willow Tree

Another World, Episode One

He tossed in bed to and fro as his body and mind were deep in the magical trance of sleep. Outside, the world around him was blanketed with the color of night. As he lay in bed in his one bedroom apartment all the concerns of his day melted away. Here and there, he muttered a word or two. He let out sounds of joy and contentment as a smile crossed his sleeping face. In his wonderful dream a light of golden beauty shone forth from the corridors of darkness. He felt so alive and happy. He had so much energy and exhilaration that he felt as if his entire being was on fire with creation magic. He began to make his way into the bright, golden light. He lifted his arm up to shield his eyes from the light’s glare. Suddenly, he emerged into the light and beheld a sight that was more beautiful then words could ever describe. Green grass went as far as the eye could see. Sparkling blue streams meandered throughout the lush scenery. His eyes tried to catch all of this spectacular glory as his brain tried to make sense of it all. High above him the sky was the most beautiful blue he had ever seen with billowing,white clouds. He looked around and saw gorgeous butterflies in every color fly around. Some of them were even the size of a large bird! He could also see wisps of gold here and there and everywhere. But he didn’t know what they were. He felt a tug on the bottom of his shirt and he looked down. He jolted a bit with sudden surprise because there before him stood a young lady in a golden gown. But she did not look like just another ordinary girl. A magical aura was around her and her face had rosy cheeks. Her hair was blond with lovely braids and she spoke with the softest of sounds. “Welcome to the Land of Dreams,” she proclaimed to him. ¬†All people have their dreams and this one is yours,”she said. He looked amazed and surprised. “How can this be my dream? he asked. She replied,”Why not? You must dream! This place is real if you want it to be,”she exclaimed. He looked a little sad and said,”Yes I want this dream to be real! But in real life I am just a simple garbage man but I want so much more!” She stared at him with her light blue eyes and said,”Here Francis, you are a king!” He asked, “How do you know my name?” Her beautiful voice exclaimed,”I live in your thoughts and in your dreams that is why. My name is Beauty Light of Dream Land’s fairies because when I am overwhelmed with happiness my whole being lights up like the sun!” she said with a fairy laugh. Beauty Light then said to him,”Now before I take you by your hand and walk you towards Dream Castle over those green, grassy hills you must awaken but you will return again. We will see you again, Lightbearer.” Then, all of a sudden, he was back in the darkness not knowing what to do. He could hear a low pitched growl coming from behind what looked like the silhouette of a door. On either side of this door were purple flames illuminating it. The Growl said,”Open this door Francis and come into the Realm of Nightmares.” He said nothing and stumbled further into blackness then he woke up. His eyes could see the ceiling of his apartment. His alarm clock was going off as usual.

-I hope you enjoyed your first read into the mini part series of Another World. Stick around and find out what happens to our dear Francis the Lightbearer next time!
