Of Muse and Pen
By
Price: $0.99 USD. Words: 18,220. Language: English. Published: June 1, 2014. Category: Fiction » Poetry » Contemporary Poetry
The poems in "Of Muse and Pen" range from general commentaries on writing to frustrations I’ve had in learning specific poetic techniques; the joyful burst of inspiration to lamentations when it fizzles to dust; the arduous, annoying process of submitting poetry for publication to the self-indulgent pleasure of having them accepted. In other words, it covers the broad spectrum of writing poetry.

Inside Insight: A collection of poems
By
Price: Free! Words: 9,140. Language: English. Published: May 28, 2014 by E. M. Crisp. Category: Fiction » Poetry » Contemporary Poetry
There is little for the timid or weak of heart. Nor will the optimist find much grist for his or her mill. There are sparks, but not of hope. They are the kind which start disagreements ending in red-mist. Driven, too far, without reason. Scarred, too early, without resolution. Inside there may be insight, but there is nothing to envy in viewing the world from this man's point of view.

What exactly is poetry and how can you tell good poetry from bad? Does poetry need to have some sort of form, or is it enough to simply express your own emotions? Is poetry just a term for the highly refined and concentrated use of language, or can it also be a spiritual practice? What might the poetry of an alien civilization or an artificial intelligence be like?

Conduits of the Sublime
By

I've been feeling in recent months the infinitesimal boundary between ourself and the sublime. And the veneer DOES disappear. And then and only then do true poems come out. All the writing I have ever done, is just a means of wearing away that layer: being ever closer to the moment, the moment that does not end. If these poems are conduits to the sublime, then so is every man and every woman.
