A collision of ideas and a wonder of words.Remember when you first learned that a grouping of owls was a parliament? In his second poetry collection, Leon Stevens explores familiar themes such as human nature, the environment, and personal observations, many with a touch of humor. Also included are the poems from the 30 Poems in 30 Days Challenge and a short story inspired by one of them.
Lines by Leon is a selection of poems, prose, and short stories that address the subjects of loss, struggle, and reflection. Inside these thoughtful contemplations are original observations about ego, behaviour, human relations, places, and the environment. Many of the pieces feature a lighthearted and even humorous take on a subject, and the author invites his readers to laugh, think, cry, and meditate on the wide variety of thoughts
The poems in Pastoral Suite welcome those in-between hours when we turn off the voices of radios and reconnect with a few solitary clouds. A master of suspended time, Muro removes us from a busy world and leads us into an abundant life thick with details of wind-shorn nests of lichen and leaves that hung like paper/lanterns or flecks of gold disgorged downstream over moss-softened stone.
The poems in John Muro's first book, In the Lilac Hour & Other Poems, move with a sure hand between closed forms (especially sonnets), invented forms, poems after writers like Keats and Frost, and free verse; and they are committed to seeing and honoring the passing of seasons, of friends and family, and to the birds and flowers that constitute the local reality of our everyday lives. Looking closely and surely at the world around him, Muro's descriptive abilities are everywhere apparent.

this is my latest book - just released on Amazon. It is a trawl through a life time ( 67 yrs.) of spiritual exploration, much of it unasked for and unsought until I realised that I was being prodded hard in the back, and until I turned around my life would always run wonky. It hasn't been totally plain sailing since I did turn around, but each decade thereafter got...

'Scop' has gestated over several years and covers a varied subject matter, some poems previously published elsewhere. The unifying theme is revelation. This is self-revelation, whether in the first person voice of the writer or through exploring characters, from Biblical to wannabe-rap-artist. There is constant search for that form of epiphany that only the interplay of language can illuminate. It is hoped these pieces will reveal something for each reader.
Poetry book from Hiba Heba a wall is gnarled, and rain-blotched outside my window, I refuse to vandalize it with binaries: it displaces my reveries, the way poetry does and the tawdry absence of it, I’m blue and rinsed by the psithurism of a mulberry tree.
