The world could definitely use more love poetry right now. A Particle of You by Cendrine Marrouat and David Ellis fits the bill
In this new collection from well-established authors Cendrine Marrouat and David Ellis, enjoy a series of love poems delicately crafted to stimulate emotional and endearing aspects of our deep connections with each other.
Cendrine and David have selected poems for this volume that perfectly capture feelings and nuances relating to romantic notions. They explore how love can fundamentally shape and change you, how it can feed your innermost muses/desires and ultimately how it can define you as a person, if you fully embrace it with every fibre of your being.
Love need not be scary or complicated. This collection shows us that even the simplest of intimate gestures can mean more to us when speaking from the heart and soul.
Here’s a sample:
The Garden Beyond the Looking Glass
(Inspired by the Greek Fable The Magician’s Horse)
Once upon a time
There, in a large forest
Beneath the stars at night
Stood a trace of human life
A living soul, with hunger and thirst
Lost in the flame of a fire, flickering
A glow spoke from it
Pure gold in a looking glass
Smouldering ruins, discovered, heard
Behind a mirror, there was nothing to lose
The sound of the earth, answered
“Fly once more and see the way!”
We must look back again behind us
When not able to advance, retrace steps
Hear the twinkling, the water, the fizz
Gather it, open a door of promise
Let anyone see and set out through beautiful paths
Everything loved from that moment, celebrated
Not to be left behind
You will find the sun glittering, in all directions
A rose in rebellion, disguised as a garden
Where the right of nothing but ‘be themselves’ is good enough
Be a hero for many and see a reward embroidered within
