In this short story-poem, a woman flees from a mysterious danger on an island. During her night flight from the island, she experiences a spiritual epiphany. There is a surprise ending to the story-poem.
She was about to give up
And turn around
When she heard a little sound.
It was the sound of water splashing.
Against the nearby wooden pier,
Some waves were lapping.
She was surprised to see
A sailing skiff still upon the sea.
Silhouetted against the shining moon,
A lone sailor in the skiff
Appeared none too soon.
"Sir, to the mainland,
Could you make one more run tonight?
I'll pay you well.
For your trouble,
I'll make it right."
The man smiled and replied,
There's always time for one more run,
Even if my passengers only number one."
In bright moonlight,
The sea seemed to glow
And was wonderfully serene.
It seemed almost like a dream.

Many great accounts of the fateful night of April 14th and 15th of 1912 have been told about the sinking of the RMS Titanic. Over the past one hundred and one years, the stories of the people and the disaster have been explained in art, movies, books, music and verse.
This book begins with two original poems I have written to commemorate the ship's first, last and only voyage and the heroics demonstrated by some of those souls on board, some who survived and others who did not.
Other wonderful and historic poems from the years immediately following the disaster are included here along with musical tributes, some of which can be linked to hear historic renditions on ebooks and computers.
Some of the poems are famous, while others were penned by unknown poets.
This book contains some of the most personal poems written by Christian author Paul Johnston Sr. plus a ten part series on last days prophecy gleaned over the last twenty seven years of serious study of the matter. The author has made a sincere attempt to cast aside his denominational bias to look clearly and reverently at the signs of Jesus' return. Scripture is provided as the basis for the author's beliefs. It is written with a humble spirit recognizing that God is in control and being human, the author could have some errors in his viewpoint but believes the scenario for the timing of last days events is the most accurate view of Scripture relying on reasonable assumptions.
A world record. A challenge like no other. The first multilingual literary work ever created... a true celebration of language and science.
Twenty-eight distinct languages join forces for the first time in a single publication, each with its own unique voice; its own exclusive role in the progression of the story, with absolutely no repetition of content from one language to the other. Two lovers, separated by the longest possible distance. A story of sacrifice and unyielding persistence... waiting for someone to unravel its secrets.
Under the guidance of the anonymous author of The Unwords, the book's groundbreaking multilingual structure expands into full-page, full color illustrations as the author attempts to erase the line that separates a work of literature from a work of art. Also included in this edition is the remarkable true story behind the book's creation, which ultimately led to a Guinness World Record and an honest look into the life and struggles of the anonymous author.

Poems from San Francisco is a poetry collection for bringing new light to life and changing the way you look at things. It is best served with coffee or tea.
