Fool’s Quest

Fool’s Quest

Once upon a distant journey

weapons of choice

the history of the world

The Quest –

Asking for the earth

Defy gravity

a road less travelled

mightier than the sword

Entering the castle

peace is the way

The touch

invisible acts of power

The eye of heaven

the signature of all things

Eternal echoes

A new earth

      1. I’m not sure if you followed me, but thanks as well if you did. Hahahaha. Looking forward to seeing more of your work. This sampler is amazing, can’t wait!!

  1. I’ve read SO many of those authors. I’ve been in love with Clive Cussler’s Dirk Pitt for 30 years!!! This is a new thing to me, too. I love the idea. Had a lot at her post. Totally awesome.

    1. Thank you 🙂 This one was a book spine poem. I looked at the titles of books on my shelves. I selected a handful. Wrote the titles down. Then I played with various ways of putting them together when I got a better sense of the theme that was emerging. Discarded some titles. Added others 🙂

      1. If you follow the link at the bottom of my post it will take you to the blog where it all started from. I only used each title once. And yes, we DO have a LOT of books !!!
        I was thinking it would be interesting to take this idea and put together a poem using street signs or titles from magazine articles. What do you think ?

    1. LOL – I mean thank you so much You’re the second one. I hope you don’t mind if I combine the two ? And of course there will be a link to you as well. I do bend the rules in these things. Just letting you know 🙂
