Not Writing A Book In My Head – Day 6

The Heart of the Matter

Writable About The Heart of all Matters

Writable about’s is the premise of my posts for this year’s national poetry month celebration. This is based on a quote from Sylvia Plath who knew first hand the difficulty of writing about the singeing flames the winds of living taunt us with. Today listen to this You Tube reading of the excerpt.

Out of the ash
I rise with my red hair
And I eat men like air.

About Taylor Collins

Taylor writes in fragments - journals incessantly – the sea a recurring theme. She blogs and works on three writing projects at the moment. She was selected to read a twitter poem, written during National Poetry month, for the “Tell Me More” NPR program in 2011. A day diary was selected for publication in Water Cooler Diaries published in 2008 (De Capo Press). She recently completed a small chapbook, a 12-part poem entitled Flame. Taylor receives “real” rejection letters now – a sure sign her work is being read. She paints and writes in her studio/gallery -- Parke Green Galleries located on the site where the US Constitution was first ratified. She spends time thinking when deep thoughts surface. Taylor leads a rather dry life on the ocean she's tossed about on. Be sure to visit her if you're ever in the state that started our nation. Cheers!
