I am in the process of writing a novel, well giving a try anyway. I have decided to include a poem at the start of each chapter for the novel. The poem sort of acts as a “blurb” for each chapter. Well this is the poem for the first chapter. The actual chapter isn’t complete although I have got the basic plot etc. organised I just need to write it better and include other aspects. I will let you have a read when I have a better copy ready. In the meantime enjoy this poem, and more to follow in the series.
Wolves unleashed by the darkened skies;
As raindrops, they descend fluidly upon the camp.
Fires long extinguished hide their hungry eyes
And sheep fall forever, lost under the sleeping lamp.
Lambs seek shelter from the ravenous storm
Yet a lonely lion cub, raised by the flock
With uncertainties from sacrificing others wasn’t warm.
He wanted to fight, and not hide under a rock.
Surrounded by sheep, will the cub bleat or,
In time discover the truth and find his roar.
