The Prettiest of feathers and The Killing Circle
Psychological thrillers are not my favorite genre; however in this case, I shall recommend two books I thoroughly enjoyed. One is by a Canadian author and takes place in Ontario Canada, the other is by both John Philpin and Patricia Sierra.
THE PRETTIEST OF FEATHERS delves into the deep and dark mind of a psychotic killer. What is interesting is the dance between his latest victim and himself, one bent on killing and the other seemingly wanting to be killed. I will say no more, not to spoil the read!
I will add however the start of the story takes place in a bookshop, and poetry plays a role!
THE KILLING CIRCLE. Is another thriller based on a writing group. (by Andrew Pyper) Now as most interactions between writers and poets is via the internet, I am sure many could relate to this one. Oh how much fun it would be …. If only……………. Ah if only one could keep a secret! J
Now I have shared these good reads with a few poets on the PoetrySoup, so it will be interesting if this should maybe inspire a poem or two. I most surely think it will.
As Halloween is just around the corner, I thought what a fitting post!
It has been a while since I have posted a blog! Yes there is a reason for this. It has not been for lack of ideas or topics, simply because with current events, most of my ideas have been focused on American Politics, aka Humpty Dumpty and his wall, and of course the ongoing suffering in the world, mainly the war in Syria, and Russia’s indiscriminate bombing of hospitals, children and civilian areas! See I can’t stop myself!!!
Now this would be easy to do, however being mainly a poetry site, I thought as relevant as the topics may be, at times it can be a little over the top for a poetry site, even these are topics I often write about. So…
How about something more uplifting, less serious and none the less not without meaning, not to mention very entertaining!
I love music, I play classical guitar, and love when I hear truly talented voices and musicians! However what I truly love in life and music is diversity, and so this music video provides all that.
I might also add a small side note! The strength of her voice for some reason reminds me the strength of another woman’s poetry, Eileen Manassian. I find that poetry, art, music, culture so intertwined and beautiful, and I love when form or poet or artist or singer, reminds me of another. This is often the muse required for creating yet more original words!!!!!
Hi there, the blog has been running for almost a year, and as you can see I try to keep up a few posts a month. More about poetry and fellow poets, but also about current events, social issues as well as art and music. I look forward to any suggestions from readers and fellow poets!
