Feedback on my appearance on Vancouver Co-Op Radio’s The World Poetry Reading Series, on Thursday 19th September

Yesterday (Thursday 19th September), I was priveleged to appear on Vancouver Co-Op Radio’s The World Poetry Reading Series, http://worldpoetry.ca/. During the course of the show, I read from (and discussed) my recently released book, “The Selected Poems of K Morris“.

Whilst a podcast of my interview is not yet available (it will be posted here once it goes live), I was delighted to receive the following comments, which where sent direct to me by email, from a lady who listened to the show:

“Hi Kevin,

Just wanted to say I did manage to listen last night.

I thought it was great! The two presenters are clearly really fond of you!

I enjoyed all the poems you read. Also its clear you have got a big backlog of work!

An audio book of you reading the poems sounds like a great idea!”.

Whilst “The Selected Poems of K Morris” is not currently available in audio format, “The Writer’s Pen and Other Poems” can be purchased from audible.co.uk and audible.com, https://www.audible.co.uk/pd/The-Writers-Pen-and-Other-Poems-Audiobook/B07KPPQ2K2.

You can find my “Selected Poems” here https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07WW8WXPP/ (for the UK), and here https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07WW8WXPP/ (for the US and elsewhere).

Finally beginning work on a selected poems

After lots of excuses to myself, I have determined to finally sit down and draw together a Selected Poems. Those of you who follow this blog, will know that I have previously mentioned my intention to do this, however, excuses are now at an end and I shall be noticeable by my absence as I work on this project.

To be frank, I enjoy writing which does, on the whole come easily to me. In contrast pulling together a poetry collection and/or selection is a chore, (albeit a pleasant one), hence me not having begun work on it as yet.

Incidentally, if anyone has experience of producing a Selected Poems, I would be interested in hearing from them. My understanding from Amazon is that a poet may produce a Selected Poems and that will not be construed as a duplication of their existing work. Again, if any of my reader’s understanding differs from that outlined above, do, please let me know either by commenting on this post or, alternatively via email to kmorris poet (at) gmail dot com). Please note, the address is rendered thus in an attempt to defeat spammers!

A Review of my book, “The Writer’s Pen and Other Poems”

I was delighted to receive the below review of the audio edition of “The Writer’s Pen and Other Poems”:

“A Delightful 25-Minute Poetry Listen
When I downloaded the Audible version, I was surprised to discover that Alex Lee, the narrator, is a woman. She does an excellent job. Her reading of one poem about a clock and a refrigerator includes sound effects. Some poems remind me of Robert Frost and other such poets. I recommend this book as a delightful twenty-five minutes of poetry listening”.

My thanks to author Abbie Johnson Taylor for reading and reviewing “The Writer’s Pen”.

In the woods dark heart

In the wood’s dark
Heart the breeze
Whispers in the trees
Words that I can not comprehend.
May god send
Me peace
And this breeze
Never cease.

‘In the woods dark heart’ can be found on Amazon in ‘The Writer’s Pen and other poems’ by Kevin Morris, available here for the UK and here for the US.
