here at work
hours after quitting
because I’ve no reason
or desire to go home
where no one waits for me
the only sounds
my footsteps echoing
off darkened walls
breaking the sterile silence

“Melvin … bad, bad kitten!” – a new children’s book by Sannel Larson
If you’ve visited my blog more than once, you’ve no doubt seen that I’ve featured the poetry of my dear friend Sannel Larson a number of times. Well, I’m doing that again but today with a great sense of excitement as I’m proud to announce Sannel’s first children’s book, “Melvin … bad, bad kitten!” is now available on Amazon. Hold on, you say! This is a poetry blog. Aren’t you supposed to be writing about poetry?
Well, I am! Sannel’s book is written in rhyming verse and details the adventures, or should I say misadventures, of the adorable and mischievous Melvin. Sannel also created the beautiful, colorful illustrations in the wonderful children’s book that would be a perfect gift for the little ones in your life. So, I encourage you to check out Sannel’s new book.
You can also learn a bit more about Sannel on her Amazon Author Page or by visiting her blogs, Sannel in a Nutshell and Sannel’s World of Poetry. You won’t be disappointed to visit either but, better yet, visit both!
