Pomes

Eighteen months ago, in my blogging childhood, I came across a poet who could light fires in the soul. The clever simplicity of his condensed words were enough to give me hope that traditional poetry was not only still around but was alive and very definitely kicking.

Last January he was, err, 'persuaded' to start a blog and has built up a steady following of readers.
Now, I am delighted to say that this wicked wielder of words, a man with a sharp brain and an even sharper tongue is about to be published.

Soon, very soon, John Ahearn is to be unleashed upon the world.....

.

Published by Derec Jones at Opening Chapter, this book will be an absolute 'must have' for anyone and everyone. I know this for certain because I am having a tiny part in bringing it to fruition - and what a fruit it will be!

You will run out of expletives in a minute, Debi!

Hello, Princess. This guy was blessed with a very industrious muse.

The interview with John, over at The Opening Chapter, http://openingchapter.co.uk/blag/2007/09/26/jt-ahearn-the-american-poet/
is just the best. Interviews are difficult, and he wordcarved this one with the same craft as his poetry.
Super job, John!
