ATTENTION IPAD USERS!
Apple doesn't like listing me as "Will Shakespeare (poetry blogger)"
to differentiate me from the other guy, although everybody else does.
They took my first book but now won't take new ones. (Go figure.)
Since Smashwords distributes my books to Apple anyway,
just go to my Smashwords author page and download EPUBs from there.
Smashwords provides samples of my books also.

Calm Waters

It’s the moon shining down that betrays them.
Gathered in pools or sequestered in lakes,
Gentle ripples make their way along calm
Waters, bouncing off shores both artificial
And natural, to make intricate patterns
On the surface. Soon they will be destroyed
By cannonballs of human flesh; the shelling
Begins with taunts and laughter, and the end
Is an explosion of childish pleasure.
