Richard M. Ankers is the English author of The Eternals Series and Britannia Unleashed all published by Next Chapter. Richard feels privileged to have had stories and poetry published all over the world. He lives to write.
A prolific writer, a constant source of clearing his mind, Richard has created this website to share just some of the many poems and prose he has written that would otherwise have fallen by the wayside.
Reading and writing have always been Richard's main love along with the pursuit of keeping fit, running, walking, and anything that provides a spectacular view.
Running in the rain with his headphones on whilst dreaming up some future storyline is just about perfect. It would be nicer still if that run was in Switzerland or Norway, but we can't have everything.
Oh, and coffee, lots and lots of coffee.

Oh my goodness I was just thinking about you. I was coming to your blog to leave you a message. Then I see this…I’m thinking gosh without the pain we seem to not grow…not sure why that is. Be in physically or mentally we do grow if we allow it. We need to catch up. I love when you pop in with your beautiful words. 🙂
Thanks, Michelle. I’ll give you a buzz during the week and if I don’t just prod me. 😀
I’ll do that for sure. Or vice versa you know my memory. LOL
Like you, I think pain is valuable, in that it teaches us far better than anything else can. But afterwards, that can be special too…
The image said it all…
Thank you very much.
Reblogged this on anita dawes and jaye marie.
I saw this re-blogged on Michael’s site
And I realized just how long it’s been since I visited here – my apologies.
No need at all. I’m just glad when you do. Plus I’ve not posted much lately.
The picture, though steady, somehow manages to reflect the tumultuous rise and fall of the poem. Amazing work
Thank you, Saadia. I found that image on Unsplash.
