Book Review: A Poetic Proposal by Julian Froment

Julian Froment:

Wow. I just found a wonderful review of my poetry collection by Ellespeth. It appears we were in the depths of Texas on a road trip when this was posted and I completely missed it. Thank you so very much, Ellespeth.

There’s a wonderful little book of poetry, A Poetic Proposal (by Julian Froment), that was recently published and would be just perfect for romantic Valentine’s Day reading and giving. If you’ve ever experienced a long distance romance and courtship, or know someone who has, this collection will ring true to the frustration of being apart and the anticipation of being together. Dreaming and hoping:

On Gossamer Wings
On gossamer wings,
my heart it flies to you…
And soon now,
Oh, so very soon,
the body shall be along…

In the midst of these poems, exchanged with his love, the poet sneaks this one in:

Poor Poetry
I hope you never get tired,
Of my poor attempts at poetry..

Who could tire of receiving poetry from a lover? Certainly not me!

Julian Froment’s collection is like a genle, though sometimes impatient, dialogue. The words seem written to comfort even those beyond…

Across from an Ocean

Peppermill

 

 

 

 

 

 

Across from an ocean,
There we met,
The flesh first seen,
No need to fret.

An awkward kiss,
Rushed, in our way,
But perfect bliss,
What can I say.

A divide so wide,
Of Eastern promise,
As each we eyed,
On our first tryst.

Then after that time,
Of heavenly splendour,
The ultimate crime,
We’d always remember

I had to leave,
The law of the land,
I could not breathe,
As I held your hand

To fly away,
Across the sea,
Until that day,
When with you I’ll be.

It will come,
There is no doubt,
As riseth the sun,
You I ca’never be without.

When I Wake

When I wake,
By your side,
My heart and soul,
No more to hide

Just one look,
Into your eyes,
I wish again,
No more goodbyes

When I kiss,
Your perfect lips,
My heart it leaps,
And totally flips

I brush my hand,
Across your hair,
I’ve never seen,
A maid so fair

My heart it beats,
A mighty tattoo,
Every one,
Just for you

Just to spend,
Each day with you,
By your side,
My love so true.

I’ll Change My Flag

Chain

 

 

 

 

 

Alone again,
On this desolate isle.
Trapped in a chain,
No desire to smile.

Dreaming of then,
When together we were.
Dreaming of then,
When together we’ll be.

Thoughts of us,
Lift my heart.
Thoughts of us,
Never apart.

Days will pass,
Night times too.
No need to ask,
I’ll come back to you.

Time it does drag,
Until that day.
I’ll change my flag,
When we find a way.

I love you, Ionia.

Channeling Harrison by David Young

channeling HarrisonDescription from Goodreads

This book is a true account of the ongoing and mind-blowing experiences between David Young, a multi-talented musician/producer artist, and former Beatle George Harrison. What David Young, who plays two flutes at one time and has sold over a million CDs, has documented is verifiable, real, and astounding. Every time he questioned his direction, he was (is) guided by one of the most loved, respected, and spiritual musicians of all time. The story abounds with seemingly impossible synchronicities, lined up one after the other in perfect time, all of them helping him to rise above his life s challenges, and not only evolve as a musician, but as a spiritual being as well. George entered David s life during a time of devastating heartbreak. This intervention was just the beginning of over forty incredible experiences. George s musical genius began to channel through David s own music. After recording forty instrumental CDs, David spontaneously wrote and recorded twenty-five vocal songs in thirty days! Songs with depth and rich production values like the Beatles, in a rock-with-soul style he had never done before. What is George trying to communicate, and why has he chosen David? This incredible story proves there is life after death or better yet, life after life.

The book comes with a free download of three of these songs as well as three spiritual instrumental tracks.”

Four stars out of five

As a longtime fan of George Harrison I was very interested in reading this book and learning of the author’s experiences.

I liked the way in which this book was written and structured. The format made it an easy book to read and the topic was extremely absorbing.

This book was an account of the author’s personal life experiences, and in particular how he related these moments in his life to his spiritual connection with former Beatle Harrison. I especially liked hearing how Mr Young continually experienced these episodes of concurrence.

The author presented an interesting life story, even without the association with Harrison. The obvious spirituality of the author was apparent throughout.

This book will appeal to many diverse readers, in particular those with an interest in George Harrison, or with an interest in matters of a deeply spiritual nature. I found this to be a thoroughly enjoyable read.

This review was based on a complimentary copy of the book.

Freelance writer and blogger, Yohana Petrovic contacted me with an idea for a post describing four tools that can help you become a better writer. Enjoy!

The best free tools to improve your writing skills!

The art of writing is a combination of language, technical skills and creativity. The language and technical aspects of your writing include elements such as grammar and proofreading. However, grammar is an area from which you can learn every day. The command over grammar is like the electricity powering your computer: you will need that power every day to create polished content.

The creativity aspect of your writing includes the major element, which is your uniqueness – ‘your style of writing’. Hence, there are categories such as fiction writer, resume writer, copywriter, content writer and so on.

If you have just begun your writing career, then give it a minimum of 3-6 months to understand…
