I channel the vigour of Ed’ Allan Poe,
As beasts encircle, the ink doth flow,
My fevered ravings, cling to the parchment,
The fire in my belly’s increasingly ardent.
This Scribe knows not, the exact composition,
Of what’s forming, through iambic traditions,
The muses, they call, my soul reaches out,
Deciphers the code, then delivers, with clout.

Sometimes you just can’t beat a classic approach, “The Greats” were recognised as such for a reason (although, some posthumously so). I do however, sometimes feel the examples we are given of great penmanship, do not always convincingly convey the power and transformational energy of writing and ideas.
With this piece, I chose to pay homage to a phenomenal wordsmith, Edgar Allan Poe, whose impact is still deservingly being felt and appreciated today, long after his earthly departure. I hope I too can do justice to my craft, keeping it alive and thriving, for centuries to come.
Granted, I do things in a different way to my pen-wielding forefathers and foremothers, more reflective of MY era and experiences, but I too shall one day be seen as old fashioned, and with any luck, classic, but there will always be an essence of timelessness to the written word.
Cheers, to writing, and the worlds it transports us to! (clink), CHEERS!
Love and Respect always,
