Lamentations of a Farmer

A big thanks again to Suzanne Craig-Whytock at DarkWinter Literary Magazine for giving my short story ‘Lamentations of a Farmer‘ a wonderful home. She promotes and publishes so much great work and I’m so pleased to be included there. It’s well worth the visit. Thank you! And the artwork she chose to accompany it is perfect!

    Congratulations on the pubication of “Lamentations Of A Farmer”! I just read it. What a powerful story. It reminded me of “The Metal Sky” by Ervin Krause.

    I don’t know how I missed this one, Steven, but I’m so glad I found it. I was completely immersed and transfixed by your imagery. So much power in that random encounter. Congrats on the publication.

    I don’t know about natural, but thank you. It can be awfully hard sometimes. 🙂

    HI Steven, I just read your story which I enjoyed very much. A most interesting reflection on the path to death. I suppose we are all fascinated by our ultimate ending. These words are simply beautiful “From a mean distance, he noted the tricks of the midmorning sunshine, how it spilled through a colander of apple tree branches and furnished a fine frippery of light, then raised its heels along the curves of the pea-gravel garden borders and set itself to dance.”

      Thank you kindly, Roberta. I like to write small stories of people’s lives and journeys, I suppose as an expression of my own aging. I’m very pleased you enjoyed it.
