After the Ball

When I visited you
In your parent’s house
I doubt you knew
How I wanted you.
I remember your spouse
(To be).
Did he
Know
I wanted you
So?

After the ball
An owl called
And you said
How the owl’s cry
In the dark park
Was “sexy”, and I
Thought of bed
And went home
To tea, alone.

Does Grammar Matter?

A thought provoking view regarding the importance of grammar, https://capx.co/theres-nothing-kafkaesque-about-learning-the-rules-of-english-grammar/.

I must confess to having forgotten some of the rules which, as a child where inculcated into my young mind.

A Shiver, a Sigh, a Smile: Audrey Driscoll’s Review of Leaving and Other Poems by K Morris

I was delighted to receive a 4 star review of my recently published collection Leaving and Other Poems:

“Morris has a knack for creating vivid pictures with few words. “The Lighted Department Store” is a perfect example. Reading it, I saw the cheerful lights of store and pub, I heard the shouts of drinkers and the clink of glasses, but at the end, I was reminded, comes darkness and silence.

The brevity and conciseness of these poems make this book perfect for readers looking for philosophical glimpses into life.”

Forthcoming Poetry Collection

For some time I have been working on pulling together a new poetry collection, the provisional title of which is Leaving and Other Poems.

The collection consists of both serious and humorous verses, with the former taking up the lions share of Leaving and Other Poems.

I hope to send off the manuscript for proof reading by the end of the week, with a view to the book going live on Amazon in late January/early February.

As with most of my poetry books, Leaving and Other Poems will be available in e-book and paperback. Many readers (including myself) still enjoy the physicality of paper books. Indeed I find that many younger readers become tired of screens and relish being able to sit down with a paperback or hardback book.

Once the collection is available I will post links to the respective formats on this blog.

If you are interested in receiving a free copy in return for an honest review please do contact me at kmorris poet (at) gmail dot com, (the address is rendered thus in order to defeat spammers who click on email links and bombard people with unwanted junk mail)!
