CHANNILLO
Angry Silence
By ray stone

Series Description:

This is a little more than a book of poetry. In this, my first book of verse, I have included a series of comic "Our Correspondent" news items that I wrote while my late wife and her friend (both American ladies) toured Ireland. Thier antics inspired me to write what I thought would be a funny anecdote. They proved popular in this book. Included here is material from a second book I am working on at the moment. Angry Silence is my Intrnational prize-winning poem. With each poem I try to explain why I wrote the poem or what inspired me; even my excuse for writing one or two. I have written rhyming verse for many years. Two Blues numbers that I wrote were written with deep feeling for the subject matter or the location and also appear here. A few more pieces of work have been included here. I hope you like this work.

This is a beautifully presented book with some outstanding photographs taken by Ray Stone. These illustrate the poems and other pieces of prose that reflect on life. Ray is a talented writer and we see this talent shine through in poems like Night-time Blues.
A seam of irony runs through pieces like Hold Me Close Tonight when you realise Raymond is having a laugh at himself for trying to romance Sophia with his rotten poem’.
News from Eire documents the story of two American women (Thelma and Louise) on the loose in Ireland. It is a hilarious account of their evading Garda, driving erratically along railway lines and mounting roundabouts.
The notes from the author that accompany each piece add an extra dimension and insight into him.
The book is a heart-warming, superbly presented set of reflections on life. It showcases Ray Stone’s talent as a writer, poet, song-writer and photographer.

Ray Stone loves writing; you feel his passion through the many well-crafted lines in this work. There's a poem for every mood, with themes that include the tortuous path love takes, and the burden of loss. Some are collections of lyrics, as Ray has also dabbled in songwriting. His values show clearly in many of the poems, such as Freedom's Symbol, creating a meaningful dialogue with any reader.
The author also illustrated many of the pages; he is both poet and photographer in this work; enjoy!
