My Newest Book – Almost Finished


I’m in the formatting stage of completing my 5th book. What makes this book stand out from the others is . . . this is my first work of fiction.

I’ve collected and edited 50 decades of  selected poems and compiled a chapbook. Do you like the cover?

High Along the Green Weyes: Selected Early Poems will be available first in Kindle and eBook format, followed by the print version several weeks later.

I hope that I may add a new fiction audience to my already faithful non-fiction readers. And once my book of poems is launched, I can get to work on finishing the two novels I have in the works. Very exciting for me to launch out in fiction.

I hope you will share this post with friends and family and help me spread the word. I’ll keep you informed.

If you would like to be placed on my Personal Newsletter list, please sign up on the right in the navigation column. The newsletter, when I begin it, will be quarterly. And short!! LOL.

Here’s one of the poems:

Okemo

A light breeze, sweet with morning,

flapped my curtain, stirred the long

blinds to softly clatter, welcoming day.

–a mountain-flyer morning.

 

High over valleys watching, with hawks–

Okemo–scarred with jagged trails, bare, green grassed,

empty lines and lifts and ledges,

beside condominiums–gleaming rows of white teeth

smiling in the sun–

long after Abenaki moved north.

 

Okemo–sore with skiers and trails, waits

through seasons for her trees to return

as the wheel comes round again,

as it always comes round . . . again–

around To her, alone in wind,

with hawks.

Realm of Fay ” 4 Haikus”


The Haiku art form is beautiful; it can even be stunning. The Haikus at Five Reflections so inspired me that I decided to post a link to my attempt at “Four Haikus” at my Litblog–Realm of Fay.

FYI – David Fay is my birth name. I use it for my poetry, fiction, literary essays, etc.

Please visit Five Reflections too. When we find something worth mentioning, isn’t it great to pass that along?

LITTLE COMMERCIAL:

This blog, David’s Place and my Litblog, Realm of Fay are both available for your Kindle.

Simply click on either title, it’ll take you to Amazon and a 15-day FREE trial. You might want to check out my wife’s blog Marcy’s Walk. Her blog is available on Kindle too at Marcy’s Walk on Kindle.

Thanks for reading.
