Exhaling, I Get Dizzy


Exhaling, I Get Dizzy

From one note flattened
to the next floating whole,

textured with rustling
stalks and the sweet odor

of dried grasses, you
detach, drift off.

What colors this tone, you
ask. What sings my day?

  1. It’s a tribute to your poetic genius, Robert, that each of your commenters prefers a different line of image from this brief 8-line poem. Personally, I like the first two lines: “From one note flattened / to the next floating whole” — not just because of the hypnotic flow of sounds, but because it is very suggestive of meaning without giving us a meaning that is too easily fixed.

  2. Hi Robert (but I think you go by Bob, don’t you?),

    I am not sure if you remember me. We were following each others blogs until I got so busy with my editor that I had to give up my blog (my moniker was Authordarren).

    I am writing to tell you about my upcoming novel, due to be released on 22 May 2018 and I would be thrilled if you were to read it, and more so if you wanted to review it (but I don’t know what you feel about reviewing fiction).

    If you DO read the book, even if you don’t want to review it formally on your blog, then I would still love your honest critique directed via email.

    In my book, Finding Max, five-year old Maximilian Aldertree and his eight-year old brother, Gary, are playing in a playground one hot summer day. Gary has been tasked by their drunken mother to watch over his little brother, but while he is preoccupied on the monkey bars, Max is abducted by a stranger in a car driving past. 17 years later the two brothers meet again quite by chance one day in a NYC homeless shelter where Gary now works as a social worker and Max comes in one day seeking services. Now the two brothers, and Gary’s new girlfriend , Jean , must learn to love and trust one another all the while outwitting and outrunning the evil Quinn, who seeks to re-abduct Max for his own nefarious purposes .

    So there you have it, the plot of my new book. What do you think? Have I piqued your interest enough that you might consider reading it? I sure hope so. If you do, then please let me know.

    Best of luck, my friend (if I may call you that) in all your endeavours,

    Magnus (Darren)Jorgensen
