Debut Dream

“Paperback Writer” Duncan Reynolds

The piles of spines
spell my name,
and keys pitter-patter
steady spring rain,
supple stories blossoming
below white cliffs of conflict
an inky blue-green sea,
I dip my quill in its beauty,
flexible as bellflowers,
incandescent highlighters;
there’s hope for this wanna-be
paperback writer.

  1. So beautiful:
    “supple stories blossoming
    below white cliffs of conflict
    an inky blue-green sea”

    I think you are indeed WELL on your way, with descriptions like these!

    1. So glad. I know when I add the Beatles, it’s sort of impossible to hate it. Wonder if I can have the Beatles play during certain parts of my novel. Sure to improve the ratings. 💜

      1. Instruct the reader to listen to particular songs at the head of each chapter…include a playlist…😊😊…being silly 💙

    1. Thank you kindly, Hobbo. I can’t wait to see hear your reactions. I know you’ll tell it to me straight. I am thinking to have Beta readers by August next. If you’re really interested, I could send you an advance copy.

      1. Speaking from experience, I’d say as long as printed books stay popular, there’ll still be people writing them 😉
