My poem ‘River Crossing‘ submitted in response to the March 2020 prompt ‘Bridges’ is today posted by ‘Free Verse Revolution‘ under my full name – Eric Daniel Clarke. My thanks to Kristiana Reed, who yet again came up with an intriguing image which got me reading my poem in yet another way – always a good thing.
Since my return in February to the ‘Go Dog Go Cafe‘ as a contributing writer I’ve been posting poems on ‘Throwback Friday’ – today’s poem ‘Next Door‘ is one of my earliest first posted back in 2016 – I started late yet in a literary sense this poem seems from a lifetime ago; and in someways it is.
Both poems will appear in ‘Shorts – a take on poetry‘
‘Shorts – a take on poetry’ the first book of my transition from scientist to writer will be published in May by Potter’s Grove Press. Writing poetry came as a surprise to me. I’d a novel in mind, ‘Believing Sight Unseen,’ it still is; competing hard with the immediacy of poetry.
I started writing late, creatively, that is. Until 2012 I wrote disciplined non-fiction, lived a scientist’s life of peer review and publication. I worked at boundaries; of the physical and life sciences, of industry and academia, of research and mentoring, of observation and extrapolation. 2012 to 2017 the transition made, not easily, not smoothly, easing out of science, finding my way to write.
Turned out my approach to writing not so different to the way I did science – a little unconventional – using words in place of molecules to explore boundaries; real, imagined, of my mind and yours. In short, PowerPoint bullet points became verse – I like to keep things tight.
Greyed out, blue dulled
more than, less than words
mysterious, not really
sophisticated, quite absurd
breathes dreams, edged
defined by lines, innocence
space between, of another time

Many apologies for the confusion last week, I crossed my wires forgetting there was a previously scheduled post and created a new one. But that didn’t stop us from having another great week. Between the two posts we had over 60 likes and 180 comments and an amazing !39! shares. In the confusion did cause me to miss a whole bunch of writers, my humblest apologies as I do try to get to every post over the course of the day. So if I…
