Kender MacGowan, a devout patriot, reluctant romantic, sarcastic cynic and victim of love writes poetry as a cheap alternative to therapy, hoping that somewhere karma will pile up in his favor. He sounds the alarm about the dangers to losing our freedoms to a society slipping into the dead ends of socialism from a compound in Southern California, where he samples copious amounts of single malt scotch and practices the ancient arts of the Curmudgeon.

Beautiful analogies ... and a reminder that love is a life onto itself ... needing nurtured.

I had the pleasure of reading Hunter & The Elf Queen by Kender MacGowan and found myself drawn into this stanza about love. It’s more than a poem it’s a feeling. Kender’s writing flows effortlessly and creates a wonderful description of love gained and love lost. It takes a talented wordsmith to appeal to my poetic appetite as poetry was my first writing medium. His words paint a beautiful masterpiece and pulls me right into the Hunter’s search for his love. Poetry has to flow and create a world for me in a few short lines to capture my interest. I would recommend this wonderful painting to anyone who loves to read a story within a poem. It has otherworldly elements that appeal to anyone who has a whimsical nature about their person. I give this piece 5 stars and hope to read more of Kender’s words. Brilliant wordsmith Kender and I am proud to know you even if only online. I imagine we would have quite the conversation in a pub sometime.

I am not a lover of poetry, mainly because I do not understand what the author is trying to say. Mr. MacGowan’s The Hunter and the Elf Queen is the exception. I thoroughly enjoyed and, best of all, understood this story of love and loss. “And the Hunter eventually, predictably, Fails his Love.” Thank you, Mr. MacGowan for introducing me to poetry.
