Sample text from On the Edge

from the edge

a stone tossed

into the clouds

lightning strike

in a faraway field

we wait five seconds

in my pocket seeds of another summer

grey day

gritstone escarpment

in good company

a man stands atop the Witchesí Stone soon shackled

walkers meander uphill destination unknown


the old mill race

still has purpose
