A Tribute to Frank Prem

Today I highlight the work of poet Frank Prem. I’ve enjoyed Frank’s poetry since my first days of blogging and have been inspired to write responses twice.

He possesses the unique gift of speaking in the voice of the objects he writes about; in movement and poignancy.

The following is my paltry attempt at mimicry, so you might all experience his style:

rain (in season)

I am a piece
of gray
a mist
a cloud

evaporate

I am a drip
a tear
from North Wind’s eye

don’t go
he cries

don’t
go

I am
the autumn rain

deluged

oh please
don’t go

    Nice work, Chelsea.

    Thank you so much for the tribute to my work. This creation of poetry that sings for other people is a wonderful pursuit and I’m very thankful to be able to pursue it and have good folk like yourself take an interest and follow what I’m doing.

    Thank you, again, for that gift.

    Seems like a good guy to take inspiration from if he creates this kind of poetry

      I find many of his inspirational. His first poem that drew me in was one about creation, using a man firing and hammering metal in a shop. ‘Twas brilliant.
