I’m selling my chapbook of travel poetry Here comes the Sun on Payhip through November £1.50 for sixty pages of free-verse / prose / haiku & micro-poems. Shares would be appreciated. I’m so proud of this collection of poems. It has had favourable feedback, so I hope if you download Here comes the Sun you will enjoy it too.
Lehmann describes the writing in her book as meditations and micropoems. They seem made for fridge magnets, bookmarks, and greeting cards. In a world that seems increasingly cruel, inhumane, and barbaric Small Stones from the River is encouraging, thought provoking, and inspiring.

Are the same limitations
One that I personally believe in

that’s the best thing you do
If ever you needed some word medicine I believe Lehmann’s words, if you truly try to believe in them, will help heal you.
if you feel
is eager to rain
bring it a gift
of sunshine instead
at the glorious colours
made me think of the beauty of the rainbow patterns on rained on concrete when the sun comes out.
