From icy winter’s chilling winds to
the warmth of summer's mellow breeze
the natural world can
heal all it sees.
Majestic and inspiring
with colours that astound
take heed of these moments
and the beauty all around.
BIOGRAPHY Derek R. King, is a poet, musician and published author. He lives in Scotland, enjoys the great outdoors, long walks in the hills, the sounds of the seas and ocean, art, photography and good malt whisky.

His poetry, which covers diverse topics, has been variously described as "emotive", "raw", "powerful" and "fun". 'Noir (Or When The Night Comes)' is the first collection of his poetry, a second volume, featuring writings about nature in her various forms, is planned for spring 2021.
