Many a Bright Star

Another one of our Poets, Paul Wilkins, has produced a book of his poems: "Many a Bright Star". This is a collection of his poems that include poems that he has written for special occasions. I will let Paul explain more:
"Hi to all you great poetry book readers; here is a book with a difference – profile poems of famous people. I started doing poems of famous people and have kept an eye out for any special occasion these people have had to mark with a special profile-like poem and have done many over the years. I have sent each of them a copy of what I did for them and all who replied expressed pleasure at what they read. Enjoy reading the large selection in this book."

For more details you can find his website here, some of the replies he has had here and the link to the book here

Iceland #16

like saving an ice cube
in the sun

youth and beauty
may melt away

but the important part remains
like the life giving water
