August Rewards for my Patreon supporters will be available in a couple of weeks!
In August, my supporters will receive a previously unpublished poem about a personal situation that broke my heart but ended happily, and/or a story set in Dracomagan’s world. This tale tells of a lovelorn carpenter and how he meets a dancer who changes his life forever…
Mermaids, magic and mythology… These were the themes of the poem and short story that were my July Rewards for my Patreon supporters.
If you missed out on these rewards, don’t worry! If you pledge your support for me at Patreon before 1st August, you will be able to access the August Rewards.
Each month I produce a specially crafted poem and an unusual short story for my supporters at Patreon. Both the poem and short story are previously unpublished. The poem usually covers an A4 side and the short story is a minimum of 2,000 words long.
See you at Patreon soon!

Sacrificial Love

today I’m re-blogging Frank’s recent post – his Freyan Verse are very clever! what do you think?

Francis James Franklin (Alina Meridon)

Freya Pickard has invented a poetic structure she calls Freyan Verse:

Freyan Verse consists of 5 stanzas, each containing 7 lines. The seventh line of verses two and four overlap with line one of verses three and five. … Lines one and seven of each verse contain just one word. Each poem is designed to be read both vertically and horizontally. You can read each verse separately, and, you can also read the poem as a whole.

This is my second attempt…

lust match
a conflagration made in heaven
of the self choirs of angels sing
worship of the physical beauty of two in love
of one of more unlimited passion led to the altar
ecstatic and sacrificial crying to the divine to elevate
sex with or without romance
hear her sigh an angelic voice setting heads a-spinning
see her hunger timeless eyes black holes devouring
her flame bright

glow, unblinking
eyes watch, stare,
cold worlds surround me

I present another collaboration between myself and my good friend, Patricia Spork. This lantune sequence was written between us as a way of encouraging me to write about what I have been through with both my cancer and death in my immediate family. You can read our first collaboration over at Pure Haiku at Parasitic Predator
