Resident Author: “Amber Glass”

Stuart Watkins

“Kidney Beans” in Amber Glass by SaddleBrooke author John Smith is just one of the gripping poems that grabs the reader right away. This tale of a fifteen-year-old opening a can of kidney beans on a Saturday night, along and happy, is just one of many delights that fill this wonderful read. Take the time to absorb the powerful hidden meanings woven into his poems.

Amber Glass is available on Amazon as well as in our local SaddleBrooke gift shop.

John and his wife Patricia Franklin-Smith are active writers in the SaddleBrooke Writers Group. John dedicated Amber Glass to his sons Timothy and Peter.

I recommend this collection to those who enjoy poetry written from the heart.
