Thanks to Willow Croft for arranging and conducting an eco interview with me. Great to reminisce about environment, travelling and writing with someone I feel is on the same wavelength on those topics; and dredge up some memories of writers and creations that influenced me, from somewhere in my memory!
Free ebook to download of peak pagan poetry and philosophy book from this website, before the creative juices dried, and the desire to create structured poetry declined; resulting in the slow and sublime entropy of the last decade (and third poetry collection), and the literary nonsense prose poetry of XaW Files: Beyond Humanity. Then there were the snippets of Facebook colourful background poems, and now, just a big empty void.
Ebook on Smashwords explained: The ebooks on Smashwords can be read online using online readers, or they can be downloaded to other reading devices such as the iPhone, Amazon Kindle, Barnes & Noble Nook, or to other ereading devices.
I only feel at home
when I’m alone.
Home is where the
heart is human isn’t!
After telling readers they should only buy the print book if they really want to read it; due to paper/wood concerns; I again turn normal publicity on its head by declaring my new book not as good as its predecessor, the very excellent 242 Mirror Poems and Reflections.
While that was filled with optimism this is more dystopian; the end of my use of the Folding Mirror form; but contains a few classic poems and they look nice in their Folding Mirror shapes. They have all been published on this website over the last decade, in line with the freedom of information ethos I’ve worked with.
I also kept the prices at their minimums allowed by Amazon and free on Prime; and you can take out a free month’s trial.
Thanks to everybody who has contributed to the poetry and this site over the last 15 or so years. The reason then was to try to make a difference, and that song’s still the same. I was a realist then, and thought I was only slowing down our decline rather than saving us; and recent events have shown how powerless we are; but I’m less inclined now to feel despair!
A bird comes into sight
visible via proximity and light
emerging from clouds like rain
falling on a window pane
My latest Facebook colour background sized poem returns to the Folding Mirror theme of this website and the form premiered here, but it doesn’t take that shape.
The title of the post wordplays: 1. To begin participating in, belonging to, or supporting some group, activity, or field that one left for a period of time in the past.
Weather related, underrated
sky shapeshifters, thermal lifters
sun’s canvas, prism diverse
nomadic flyers, water carriers
Tip of an iceberg
melting into words
morning sun spun
w(h)at(a)er into verse.
w(h)at(a)er [water/what air]
The above was inspired by my previous poems combining a tip of the iceberg and chilly scenery theme.
Diving deep into brain
to reach the artistic
is like riding rapids
through a harsh environment
to an oasis.
sleep celebrates silence,
space irons out lumps…
wake to human news,
return to writing
after music soothes
My books have investigated the writer mind (mining mine!) more than anyone I know, and the above are more in tow!
