Excerpt from the Sudden Denouement Anthology Volume I: What Can I Give You? by Iulia Halatz

Greenen Parlor – Iulia Halatz

From Anthology Volume I: Writings from the Sudden Denouement Literary Collective, available on Amazon

What do you see when you look at night?

The kraken sleeping
in the murk
His thoughts
would change the color
of whom
he once abhorred.

The moon is faint
and builds
the hauberk
of bark
around the dark
with armatures
that are about
to conquer down
the light.

What do you see when you look at love?

Kraken kisses and embraces
of a woman of innocence
unwise, unadorned
untamed.
Slumbering in green tentacles
vividly electric
to pursue in night
unnumbered words
astray from his
wondrous grey
to host in the parlor
the Someone
they desired.

Her untamed soul
drags her love
like Simoom
grabs the grains of sand
in hurdles and pains.

We cannot step
outside love’s iron songs.
Its music
brings falter
in the bones.
It is the alphabet
that guides the waters
to stay together
and roar
North of the wind
glisten
South of the sun

I am delighted that five of my poems were included in the Sudden Denouement Anthology Volume I. The anthology is now available on Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk.

In winter

“In winter we lead a more inward life. Our hearts are warm and cheery, like cottages under drifts, whose windows and doors are half concealed, but from whose chimneys the smoke cheerfully ascends.”
Henry David Thoreau

In summer, when days are squeezed of every inch of magic given by the clear moon in night,
we write:

Christine Ray – Composition of a Woman Like no Other

Christine Ray – Hero and tamer of words

“If the heart of the Sudden Denouement Literary Collective is the impressive collection of writers and their work, editors and their passion, readers and their appreciation, then surely Christine Ray has been a potent infusion of life for us all.

For the past two years, Christine Ray has been a valued, and much loved, member of the Sudden Denouement Literary Collective. As a writer, Christine is nothing short of impressive. As a poet, Christine is nothing short of phenomenal. With her vivid imagery and the unfiltered passion she leaves on her page, it was no surprise when Christine developed a large following of fans and a rock solid appreciation and respect from her collective, and the writers who run tight in influential social media circles, none of which are an easy feat.”

Red Beans and White Rice – Nicole Lyons

“Hypocrisy served
with a hefty side of red beans
and white rice,
and a pledge to love
the red man almost as much
as you love the white,
is still hypocrisy served
with a hefty side of red beans
and white rice…”

Nicole Lyons is a force of nature disguised as a writer, a social activist, a voice for the downtrodden, and a powerful poet with a delicate touch. She is a best selling published author, poet, and editor.

Her essays and poetry have been featured in the Sudden Denouement Literary Collective where she is also a consulting editor. You can find more of Nicole’s essays, articles, and poetry on The Mighty, The OCH Literary Society, Anti-Heroin Chic, Sidereal Catalyst, and OTV Magazine.

Nicole’s second book of poetry, ‘I am a World of Uncertainties Disguised as a Girl’ was published by Sudden Denouement Publishing in November 2017 and has remained on numerous Amazon’s best sellers lists since. You can purchase your copy here.

Praise for Pantheon by Eric Syrdal

“The poetry is densely colourful, rich in imagery and sensuality, boldly imaginative and deeply sensitive to the human condition, while being written with clarity and emotional pull. I found myself sitting for three hours, empty coffee cups scattered around me, utterly absorbed in the storytelling and the crafting of language. Syrdal has created something very powerful, using elements of history, science fiction, worldly fantasy and unmistakable reality to bind these pieces together in a system of belief and fantastic-theology that appears utterly believable, utterly intoxicating.”
Lois E. Linkens

What can I give you?

PROUD TO HAVE CONTRIBUTED TO ALIVE WORDS THAT CREATE A WORLD WITHOUT MAPS:

Anthology Volume I: Writings from the Sudden Denouement Literary Collective

What can I give you? I am the blue
as imagined by a blind
and the roots of knowledge
as watered by a scholar.

I am the yellow
wind and the mauve
respond of light
perched
in the ubiquitous trees
tethered in the clouds
that barely scratch
the sky.

I am the green
storm and colorless waves
that wished upon a mountain
to break water in tryst
with the sun.

Not by blindness
we can reorder colors
but by the painting of a soul
in a moment tender
as the liquid moon
is quivering above the forest.

SUDDEN DENOUEMENT PUBLICATIONS: Christine E. Ray’s Composition of a Woman

Leaves of life by the trailblazing Christine E. Ray

Her world is made of crystals, trees, charcoal, waves, randomness, indifference, turbulence and numbness, conquests and terrors, blood, flesh and tears, innumerable windpipes for ravenous hopes, painted dreams and never-lost-loves…
And when she gives a name to charcoal, it becomes a diamond.
Yes, her words have that power.

Composition of a Woman is currently available on Amazon.com, Amazon.ca.
