Urban Design: My Poetry Flow – My New Poetry Collection – ‘Soul To Soul’

Originally posted on Time is Money:
It’s been a long time since I’ve written some new poetry, so I have decided to start a new poetry collection that follows from my first. I hope you like the new work and feedback is always welcome. You think you are connected, Respected as a fellow beating heart with a character less expected, But in your character it’s reflected that the connection was fabricated, At my highest you made me feel elevated and in my mind I created a false reality, On the surface you created the perfect balance for me, Yet now… Continue reading Urban Design: My Poetry Flow – My New Poetry Collection – ‘Soul To Soul’

Novels aren’t movies – how to write great description in prose

Originally posted on Nail Your Novel:
Do you learn your storytelling from movies as much as from prose? Many of us do. While certain principles can be learned well from both media, others can’t. I’ve already discussed a few points in previous posts – scenes with a lot of characters, short, choppy scenes and point of view and dialogue. Today I’m going to look at description. Description in prose aims to give the reader an experience. It fills in the specifics. Description in scripts or screenplays – and novels by writers who don’t read a lot of prose – is… Continue reading Novels aren’t movies – how to write great description in prose

Read about the results of faulty motherhood in the new poetry ‘The New Way To Love’

THE NEW WAY TO LOVE. Give me the chance, To hate you at least, For you denied me even, Milk from your breast. The word love to you, Starts from back face front, And its meaning as it sounds, Which you executed to the font. The last person to expect, Became the first, To show me neglect, And hatred as much. Now that I’ve sired one, Show me how not to neglect, As if it were literally, The contemporary way to love.

LESSON LEARNED Should I dust myself, Before I fall? Is there anything in life, That make sense at all? And when I tried to think, Like a wise man does, There I began to sink, As it goes with a curse. Time passed by, And behind me a trail of years, In more knowledge I fly, But inadecuacy is what it bears. To know more than they do, Has always been my core, And when I have, in due, They’ve learned something more. So the decision I make, Is that a Know-it-all, Is one word short, Of knowing nothing at … Continue reading @jeff_martin @SuzanneBrazil Check out my new poem “Lesson Learnt” #amwriting
