Guest author: Kevin Morris ~ The Picture

The Picture

The picture stands out against the white

Of my living room wall.

A few birds still call.

A fascination with sunlight

Which, as I watch, slowly dies away.

The night

Takes the day

And the picture we see

Is lost in obscurity;

Although, we hope that this light

We borrow

Will be seen on the morrow,

But this we cannot know.

Dalliance; a collection of poetry and proseDalliance

In this collection of poetry and prose the intimate connections between the natural world and humanity are explored, while a number of pieces are of a humorous nature.

Exquisite Little Collection  Amazon review b

I loved the sheer variety of the pieces in this book – and the lyrical nature of the writing. Most beautiful. Two, in particular, stood out for me: ‘Dark Angel’ and ‘The Great Cycle’. Both evoked the connection we have with the world – though in very different ways, one being a physical bond with the natural world, the other a more inanimate ‘friend’! I thoroughly recommend this exquisite little collection.


Lost in the labyrinth of my mind by [Morris, K.]Lost in the Labyrinth of My Mind

A collection of poems about nature, love, and life in general.

Amazon review by Robbie Cheadle: I have read other poetry books by Kevin Morris and they have been lovely reading experiences but this particular volume really appealed to me. Perhaps because the poems in this book are slightly darker and highlight the more secretive, devious and hidden side of human nature and also the more willful, untamed and wilder side of nature. Kevin uses his carefully chosen and powerful words to cut to the beating heart of a wide variety of weighty and sometimes political subjects.
