Sometimes all you need is a few words

Today I’m thrilled to have author Sharon Grigg on my blog.

As part of my 2018 book challenge, I’m reading more poetry – not something I typically read. Sharon’s coffee break companion is a compilation of short stories and poems. I thought this one, Sky, was beautiful, plus it has a link to a prophecy in Eternal Seas, but you’ll need to read my book to find out why!

 

SKY

When it’s dark and quiet

While my World sleeps

I sit and stare

Feel the magic in the air

The sky at night

A true delight

Moodily cloud covered

Or sparkling clear

I love to see the stars that shine

Constellations I can barely name

And the moon

Waxing, waning, crescent or full

The sky at night

A true delight

Peaceful and free

Alone with just me

The colours behold me

Blues of every shade

Sapphire and twilight

Prussian and midnight

Deep purple to maroon

All gone too soon

As dawn creeps in

Bringing new light

The darkness fades

Stars hide away

Birds begin to sing

New light on everything

Sharon Grigg, who writes under the pen name S.L Grigg, made it her new year’s resolution to publish her book ‘Coffee Break Companion’ during 2018. After bouncing back from mental health problems (BPD), following the death of her husband from a brain tumour in 2009, Sharon was struck down with kidney and other health problems, believed to be linked to having the Essure sterilisation device she had implanted back in 2008. In September 2017 she underwent major surgery to have a non-functioning hydronephrotic kidney removed at the same time as a full hysterectomy to remove the essure device. Just two months after setting her goal Sharon launched the collection of dark, short stories and poetry on Amazon. Many of the stories were written during Sharon’s battle with mental health. 41-year-old mother of two, Sharon says “For me publishing was never about, money or fame. I just wanted to be able to hold a copy of my book and say, ‘I wrote this’ and now I can.”
