My new poetry collection has been published and will be available on Amazon within 3-5 days. This book includes all poetry and quotes previously published, plus several new poems along with information about rhythm, meanings, and in some cases ignoring grammar rules for poetic effect.
This book will also be available in a Kindle version, as soon as I fix some issues with the eBook formatting.
My new book "Gentle Spring," the second poetry and photo collection in a series of 4, is now available.

Ok folks, the spring season is in full swing. I've had the chance to take many pictures already, and I have been writing, rewriting, selecting, editing, and proofreading many poems since late last year. What does that mean for you? It means that my new book, "Gentle Spring: Poetry & Photo Collection #2" will be released very soon! I am actually in the final stages of editing right now. Once I finish editing and proofreading, I will order a proof-print, and if it all looks good, I will hit the button!
This is the first season of poetry and photographs exclusively created by me. Most of the poems in this collection are an exploration into the dark reaches of the mind and heart so that one may ponder the highs and lows of life to better appreciate the blessings they might receive.
"We cannot truly know and understand the light, until we have at least peered into the darkness, and until we have overcome the darkness that lives within each of our own souls. Can you appreciate the blessings in your life without understanding what it is like to stumble within the dark?" Have compassion for those around you who are going through dark times and who are stumbling in their own darkness.

A small sample from "Winter of my Soul" is posted here (c) Robin Langston:
Liquid voices speak to my naked heart
piercing secrets in my magic
circle and blushing to red
But color could never melt
the blindness lingering in my eyes
nor kiss away the ice from my lips
A Box Without Locks
My skin is so thin
My heart falls apart
And the shoes don't fit my feet
I wear gloves that tear
In a box without locks
And this rat won't let me sleep
