dVersePoets OpenLinkNight

I typically like to link my poetry posts to one of dVersePoets’ prompts, but due to deadlines processing some of my poetry ebooks into Audio book format, just was not able to.  Hopefully I’ll catch their next prompt that fits (they have several each week.)

This morning, I received word that my first audio book ever, “Family Poems,” was fully approved, and will be available on Amazon, iTunes, and Audible within the next few days.  I’ll have an individual post on this in the near future.

Meanwhile, please feel free to visit dVersePoets, and see the wonderful work and sharing they offer each week.

Poetry in Fiction, in a Short Story

It’s different, from finding and extracting something I’d like as poetry (from myself), from that in a longer novel or novella length work – finding just the right sequence of words I’d make into poetry from inside this short story.

It was harder, because I had less to work from, and easier, for the same reason, though nuanced to be, less to have to choose from.

So the pros and cons, where each form’s strength, in poetry and fiction, or at least mine, continues to be aspects or flip-sides of the same coin.

Interesting, I hope you like the selection / conversion.  :-)

Best wishes,

Adan

Fiction & Poetry, Pros & Cons

It’s kinda ironic that, the strength I see most in each, is in its context.

The fiction excerpt has much more power in its context within thousands of other words to give it associated meaning.

And the poetry rendition of that excerpt, gains its power, from its opening to whatever it is the reader brings to the lines.  Isolated from everything, except the reader.

I like both. :-)

Rendezvous, at Place Saint-Michel, Excerpt

Fiction

The four walked in the cold quiet of the streets, beyond the mouths of metros, lips of strangers, and into the lights of living warmly inside.  Residences of five story buildings.  Trees and street lights, wrapped in holidays, vying with windows lit with lamps.

Zilker yawned and grinned, growing tired, wondering if he would ever get pictures like that again.  The air so cold, it felt like it was talking.  The breezes, passing along whispers to him from the river.  The trees, bare limbed, were remembering everything bright for the spring.

Poetry

In the cold quiet of streets

beyond the mouths of metros

lips of strangers

and into

the lights of living warmly

inside.  Residences of five story buildings.

Trees and street lights, wrapped in

holidays

vying with windows lit with lamps.

The air so cold, it felt like it was talking.  The breezes

passing along whispers to him from the river.

The trees, bare limbed

remembering everything bright for the spring.
