I received a digital Advance Review Copy of Popcorn Poetry with no obligation to write a favourable review.
There are seventy five new poems in this book. The first one Popcorn Poetry is an amusing explanation of how Brendan Conboy writes poems. The poems are varied with some telling stories and others giving advice. All are rhyming verses.
One is a nonsense poem.
Brendan’s Christian faith is reflected in his poetry, which I enjoyed reading. His enthusiasm for life is demonstrated in his poster (above) and in his poetry.
Popcorn Poetry is available as a paperback or a Kindle edition. The poem Popcorn Poetry may be read on the Amazon website. The book was published on 22 August and is being launched online on 13th September.
This week Gigglingfattie has chosen Touchable, Wistful beige, Smokey Cream and Rose Pearl. My first thoughts were about slinky evening wear, but I wrote about something more staid.
In Neutral Shades
The bridge players Sit around the card table. An ageing wife wonders How long she will be touchable.
The cards are cut, Dealt, picked up and rearranged. In a wistful beige skirt, Blouse smokey cream; estranged
Is not the state She hankers after. They bid Ending with ‘No trumps’. Partners Know how each plays, cards hid.
Nervously she Fingers her string of rose pearls; Playing the dummy’s hand She regrets her greying curls.
Recently Annmarie Miles interviewed me about my poetry and my faith. The radio interview is to be aired in a programme on UCB Ireland on Thursday 16th June at 8pm British Summer Time. It will be repeated on Sunday 19th June at 7am BST. This is a completely new experience for me. I hope it will encourage the listeners.
