Cable Beach

written by: J C Thomas



A mirrored-glass in the stillness of sleep

Shadows stir in the whispering deep


A gentle breeze

Breathes in my ear

Soothing my mind

Waking the fear


Grains of sand flicker in space

Invisible rock pointed and round

They fly against my waking face

Silenced by gravity and bound to the ground


Blades of stone and ancient glass

Amber, jade, russet and fawn

Journey towards the final horizon

clear as my memories of the earliest dawn


Dry leaves circling sand

They exfoliate the land

Turning fresh green to skeleton leaves

Where the land and sea collide forever

And breathe into eternity

Jenny Thomas grew up on the edge of the Exmoor National Park in West Somerset, where the power of the elements shaped her imagination and formed her understanding of the importance of the natural world. Her debut novel, Awakening Worlds, is an ecology-themed fantasy epic about the destiny of life on Earth.

She explores elements of the 'real' alongside the spiritual, magical, and the psychological. She writes about the cosmos, ecology, nature, life, death and rebirth; its beauty, pain and the blurred lines between extremes.

Jenny graduated in English Literature from the University of the West of England in Bristol, UK, and spent her second year on an academic exchange to Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia, USA.

During her travels, Jenny led a creative writing and drama workshop as a volunteer teacher in Thailand and she has worked as a teaching assistant in an Aboriginal Community School in the Kimberley, Australia.
