Two Poetry Books!

I have two books to announce. Both of them are published right now, 2020, and both were written throughout 2019, mostly in the Put Pen to Paper Marathon sessions, yes – but they are not twins.

Instead of dividing the year into quarterly or biannual books, as I have done in the past, I divided the poetry I wrote by genre? style? differences? Don’t quite know what to call it, but what I did was create one book for counted-syllable poems (haiku, shadorma, etc.) and another book for free-form poetry.

I don’t know why I decided to do this, but I like the way it worked out, and I think I’ll keep it up for this coming year. But, back to the purpose of this post. Let me introduce these two books.

The counted-syllable book is Count Syllables on Your Fingers. (I wonder where I got the idea for this title? Because that’s how I figure these poems out, syllable-wise…) It’s available at Amazon here.

And here is the second book, Use All Your Eyes to See. A book full of free-form poetry. It’s available at Amazon here.

Thank you to everyone who follows my poetry on the blog or in print. It means a lot to me.

Here is a visual look at all of the poetry books I have written. All of them are available on Amazon.

And… here are three other books I’ve written, not poetry. Also at Amazon.

  1. Thank you. Two fairly recent artworks I did and they seemed to fit. As for counting on fingers, well, I’ve been doing it for a while. For so many things. Oh dear.

  2. Thank you. Now I love that idea and I am going to try it. Maybe not at the community college library if I’m on the quiet floor, but otherwise…it sounds like so much fun to put your poetry to a rhythm!

  3. Also Claudia, I have a poetry competition that ends on Tuesday. Would you like to judge it please? And maybe for the winner, you can publish their poetry? Please let me know….

  4. Thank you so much, that is very flattering, but I don’t think I am qualified for such a thing and I would not like to have to make such decisions! Best of luck to you with it.
