A Writer’s Philosophy

The Poets' Garret

The Poets’ Garret


Texte: A novel is never anything, but a philosophy put into images – Albert Camus

A brief moment of thought caught in a book
An author’s ideals that hide in the tale
Dear reader, take a deeper look, just look
A writer’s dream is there, offered for sale
Behind jumbled words that act as a veil
The hopes of the future or is it fear
Each word a hammer hitting on a nail
A beckoning voice that whispers ‘Come here’
In tense narrative that a chapter shook
The thrill is the telling, make no mistook

About Jez Farmer

I am a freelance writer and poet and started writing after raising my two boys as a way of discovering just who Jez is. That is still very much an on-going project but the journey so far has introduced me to many wonderful friends and fellow writers through an ever growing love of poetry.
