CELEBRATING POETRY AS LOVE – Blog Tour

Thank you all for allowing me to celebrate INTERNATIONAL POETRY MONTH with you by sharing excerpts from my first co-authored poetry book “IF ONLY THERE WAS MUSIC…” The Poetry of Forbidden Love.
1If Only There Was Music book cover

Here is a bit of the book’s introduction below:

“Ever read poetry that was so soothing, so mellow, and just so perfectly sweet, you felt it should have been a love song? “IF ONLY THERE WAS MUSIC…” is just that kind of poetry…but it’s also poetry written about forbidden love.

Back in the summer of 2014, I was approached by an up-and-coming author by the name of Giani Jordan. Giani said that he had been following my writing for over a year and was extremely impressed. He was reaching out to me because he wanted to collaborate on a poetry book. Well, since I didn’t know Giani and wouldn’t attach my name or my writing with just anyone, I asked if he would send me a few samples of his work, and he did. I was blown away by the intensity and the depth of this man’s writing, and wanted to know more about this person he clearly was in love with and was writing so fervently about.”

In summation, Giani was in love with a woman {Christine}, who belonged to another, and to make this situation even more complicated, he, himself was also involved in a relationship.

In this piece, Giani tries to explain to Christine that his frustration matches hers as he explains…

Our Love Is Not Easy

I live moment to moment
Waiting
For the device to
Signal
Word from you has arrived;
Never soon enough, nor often.
Our love is not easy.
The frustrations are
Mutual;
Two hearts yearning for the
Release
That touching brings,
Wants, needs, cravings unmet
Ensure that our love is not easy.

When my Love is
Sad
I can’t tilt her chin upward
Where our eyes meet;
Pools of brown
Windows to her soul
Whispering our love is not easy.

Oh, to stroke her
Cheek,
Brush away the wetness
That are the trails of
Tears;
Give her a gentle smile;
Yes, our love is not easy…

If you’d like to read the balance of this particular piece, I invite you to pick up your own copy of “IF ONLY THERE WAS MUSIC…” The Poetry of Forbidden Love on Amazon. I’d also like to invite you to follow this tour in its entirety as each day, at each stop, you will find more and more of these love songs without music, and even more reasons to fall in love with your lover, and Poetry, again. If you aren’t in love when you start reading this book, you will go seeking a love afterwards.

Please visit my complete tour line-up HERE, and at each stop that you leave a comment (including this one), your name will be entered that number of times, into a random drawing for a $25 Amazon Gift Card!!!

Thanks to my awesome host for today and thanks for stopping by, dear Guests. I hope to see you every day throughout this amazing tour to help keep Poetry alive!!! Always remember, that Love IS Poetry…they’re truly one in/and the same.

    I can’t tell you how glad I am that Giani approached you last summer and that you agreed to give the collaborative poetry a go. This book is so good that although I have the kindle version, I also want it in paperback too, so it can take pride of place on my bookshelves. 🙂

    Sterna, thanks so much for hosting Nonnie on her tour 🙂
