Read 14 Poems, Comments & Reviews from WOODED WINDOWS by Strider Marcus Jones

14 Poems from my 4th book WOODED WINDOWS by Strider Marcus Jones

In these poems, I look into and out of the wooded windows of the past, present and future. I am romantic, erotic, political and spiritual: a pagan peasant in this poverty and paradise, chained to the same land in serfdom but fighting to climb the tree of life and reach the branches of freedom.

Read 20 Poems, Comments & Reviews from POMEGRANATE FLESH by Strider Marcus Jones The poems in this collection show Strider’s gift of being able to weave words into creative and surprising configurations. He manipulates words to do his will, taming them with his love for the sounds, rhythms and cadence of language. The result is poetry that is fresh, wild, sensual, and new. His poetry lulls the reader into hypnotic and sensual trances with imaginative renderings of lush landscapes of the mind, body,and nature. Pomegranate Flesh is a wonderful compilation of poems, resonating with a poet’s passion for life, love, and language. The Pomegranate is the national fruit and symbol of Armenia. It represents fertility, abundance and marriage. One ancient custom widely accepted in ancient Armenia was performed at weddings. A bride was given a pomegranate fruit, which she threw against a wall, breaking it into pieces. Scattered pomegranate seeds ensured the bride future children.
