My friend Sioux is bringing back Book Blurb Friday that Lisa used to
do. Check out Sioux's blog for all the nitty gritty details, but basically,
you write 150 words or less as a book blurb based on the picture.
My book cover is below and comes in at 147 words.
Blue Door Knocker
Hank Miller’s new poetry collection, The Blue Door Knocker, is packed with lines of free verse that capture all the doorways he has passed through in his lifetime. He writes of the trepidation of the kindergarten door, the thrill of the one opening to his first kiss, the devastation of the one that slammed on his midlife job, and more. His lines are popular with readers because they are familiar doorways, ones they have also passed through in life.
Miller often sees doorways and entrances that others miss as suggested by these lines.
He sat on the patio with a steaming cup of coffee the color of black dirt in the vegetable patch.
Where he watched his wife squatting over the newly turned earth, dropping in miniscule radish seeds.
Her thighs flexed and he was reminded of his first entrance through that inviting doorway.
Readers, come in without knocking!
