Some comments on Andy N's Mystery Story:

"Andy N mesmerises his reader by taking them on a visual journey of imagination with a flow of words." - Katie Haigh
"Mystery Story gives a tantalizing insight into Andy's mind. It unfolds and flows,through the senses like a cool mountain stream before plunging you over the waterfall round the next bend." - Allan Gray/Gordon Zola

Mystery Story


Cover Art: Catch the Moon by Lauri Burke

{mooblock=The Way Out}

Words gobbled out across
The middle of woodland
Nestled in a portal
Of forgotten bed stories,
Half opened at dusk
Bent yellow in static
Kicking leaves onto rocks
Stung in maddened tongue
Crying for a way out
In broken poetry.
