Forgotten Brood August 17, 2007

Posted by Jason Keath in Creative Writing, Life, Poem, Poetry, Writing.

“Forgotten Brood” is the working title of a novella I have been wanting to write for a while. I started on it this past month Below are 4 lines of verse I was inspired to write as the forward to the novella. I can’t give you any more details about it until I am farther along. But it is non-fiction and very much a mystery,

The secret of man is no secret at all,
On this pebble is an epic in hand.
His feet root firm despite a long fall,
Here in these pages is the secret of man.

try to find another way to say what you say in the last line..replace “the secret of man” with an image…I like inner body references…
I love the pebble image, reminds me of Hamlet commenting that man is the “quintessence of dust”….go and read that soliloquoy and maybe that will help inspire you! I rented the movie a few days ago and fell in love all over again with the brilliance of Shakespeare!!

Very interesting excerpt from your novella in progress. It cast a magic spell that leaves me mystified wanting to read some more, though I know we have to wait. Looking forward to read the complete piece in a non-fiction book.

I wish you well ~ Jeques
