We Cast Pale Shadows

Selected Poems


We Cast Pale Shadows is a selection of poems that reflect James Rainsford’s thoughts and feelings during years of observing the world and the follies, foibles and fortunes of its varied and entertaining inhabitants. Inspired by the sombre and comic absurdities of life, the poems are at once moving, ironic, whimsical, erotic and often darkly humorous. His writing is immediately accessible and will resonate with all who’ve ever dreamed, hoped, loved, lost and laughed in the face of adversity. 

Throughout, one is frequently transported from shadow to sunlight, from spring to winter and from despair to hope. Reading these poems will take the reader on a journey through the eclectic mind of an insightful observer of the human condition. Believing that all themes or topics can be the inspiration for poetry, James has created poems in a variety of subjects and poetic structures. Hopefully, within the pages of this modest collection all readers will find something to engage, inspire and entertain them.   

A selection of my poetry entitled 'We Cast Pale Shadows' is in production and should be published in February 2020. More news as it becomes available.
