My guest for the Blogger Book Fair today brings some poetry to the party – welcome Aria Glazki.
Life Under Examination is the recently released poetry collection, by A.T. Glazki, which explores the full range of interpersonal relationships, with a blend of lighthearted satire and earnest, emotional expression.
It is now available through Amazon, Smashwords, or
the author’s site.
The preview poem below celebrates the power of creativity, in theme with the Blogger Book Fair!
Gargoyles, and witches, and pixies, and elves –
All are examples of our inventive selves.
The fey, the centaurs, the magic, the real –
It all shows who we are, how we feel.
From mountains to valleys, villages, and towns,
In every crevice enchantment abounds.
Amazing, are they not? The realms we can travel,
Without ever leaving our castle or hovel.
The rich, the poor, the hungry, or sated –
We all can share the worlds they’ve created.
Those brilliant people – you know who I mean:
The authors, the poets, the painters you’ve seen.
All of those worlds that pour out of their souls,
Aching to fill all the heartbreak, the holes
That others’ deeds or others’ thoughts
Had created – those blemished spots.
Let yourself travel, let yourself feel,
And let yourself question: what defines real?
The pixies, the elves, the gargoyles, the fey –
All do exist, in their own special way.
For what are our lives if they’re not filled with magic?
They’re pointless, and dull, and so very tragic.
Travel those worlds; let yourself live.
In worlds full of magic, you’ll forget and forgive.
by A.T. Glazki.
