the only boy on earth
awoke with a joy
as big as the moon
with a cold nose
he crept past embers
to witness
a pillow case
with a mothers love

A collection of personal poetry illustrated by John Tordoff
Reinhard Tenberg

Poetry soup recipe

Slice half a pound of words into
six abstruse metaphors
and lay in large pan of figurative speech;
pour rhythm stock over the broth
and heat up gently,
but don’t hyperbole
cook on low heat until all the
ingredients make your heart leap up
like a rainbow in the sky.

For me, poetry is a form of meaningful conversation in shorthand. If there are a handful of poems and artwork in this collection that speak to you or touch you, we shall be pleased to have found some common ground. Some of the poems have been set to music or have been recorded and can be freely accessed on my website via the poetry tab.

All proceeds from the sale of this book will go to
United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF).

Reinhard studied English Literature, Linguistics and Politics and taught at the universities of Bristol, Palmerston North (NZ), Middlesex and Cambridge before joining the Foreign & Commonwealth Office where he spent the latter half of his career. Reinhard writes full-time now. He also writes short stories and poetry and has now embarked on his second novel. He continues to live in Cambridge.

5 out of 5 stars Beautiful combination of poems and illustrations

What a beautiful book! I love the combination of poems and illustrations, and the whole thing is immaculately produced. I enjoyed the mix of humour, observation and reflection: the poems are so varied. I had to smile at 'Senior Citizen's Prayer'. Other poems were touching: 'Through the looking glass' and 'Bones in a box', for example. The illustrations are colourful, stylish, witty. All in all a wonderful book, with proceeds of sale going to the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), a most deserving cause. Do buy it.

worn to the bone
a measure of life
now sits alone
the ups and downs
of the stories it tells
begins and ends
with the ringing of bells

Secrets of the Seasons
Leigh Cripps

9781911175049 Leigh Cripps is a self-taught artist who grew up in Tring, a small market town in Hertfordshire, which is nestled at the foot of the Chiltern Hills and surrounded by farmland and open countryside. He now lives with his wife and daughter in Langford Budville, a small village tucked away deep in the Somerset countryside.
Inspired by the wildlife and landscape that has always surrounded his home, Leigh began painting at the age of eighteen. His observations and understanding of nature have created a profound belief that we are all deeply connected to the land and the changing seasons.

A selection of poems about war – from the Boer War to the present day
Sir Michael Leighton

9781909644427 This is Sir Michael Leighton’s third book of poems to be published. It is a carefully arranged selection of poems about wars – from the Boer War to the present day. They express a strong sense of the waste that is war, but also an equally strong sense of the great inspiration that can be had from those who fought them on our behalf. His positive message is that we should cherish our heritage. The photographs and pictures from Loton Park and elsewhere are mostly published for the first time, and provide a vivid commentary.
Published:November 2015
Hardback:48 pages

Sir Michael Leighton Bart., 11th Baronet of Wattlesborough and current resident of the magnificent Loton Park, on the Shropshire/Wales borders, 34th in descent of his family. He has for some years been an ardent conservationist, ornithologist, wildlife photographer and poet.
He has completed a film on his lifelong passion, the Red Kite, which has been aired on National television. He was instrumental in the re-introduction of this bird back to the Welsh Hills and has formed areas of his estate for wildlife conservation.
A keen motorsport enthusiast, Sir Michael was also responsible for the formation of the National Hill Climb event, which takes place during the summer months in the Deer Park.

Pat Edwards

Front Cover Flux is a collection of poems and essays by Pat Edwards. They span love and loss, topical events and living life to the full, and do so with warmth, honesty and sometimes a hint of humour.
Pat's work has been published on-line in poetry blogs and websites such as Offa's Press and Not a Silent Poet.
Pat regularly attends open mic events in Welshpool, Wrexham, Chester, Aberystwyth and Much Wenlock. She has had drama scripts published by Lazy Bees.
Pat's first book, printed very much as a 'vanity project', was well-received:

The book won't make the holiday as it was read from cover to cover when I got home....I laughed and cried all in the same hour, fantastic writing
Been reading your essays, moved me to tears. Can certainly recognise many feelings and thoughts. Fantastic keep writing
Very poignant and clever - very moving

J. A. Humphrey - Intelligent and Moving Poems
This book, consisting mostly of poetry with some autobiographical essays at the end, is full of 'oh yes, it's exactly like that!' moments. Pat Edwards writes with a mixture of intelligence, emotion and humour that creates an immediate connection with the reader. She has clearly been through a great deal of personal trauma because of recent serious illness, but has transformed this into universal experience through the quality of her controlled and incisive writing. I came upon 'Flux' purely by chance, but it is a book to which I shall return again and again.
