Friday lines is a weekly meme where I post both Book Beginning on Fridays hosted by Rose City Reader where you share the first sentence of the book, along with your impressions and Friday 56 hosted by Freda’s Voice where you grab a book and turn to page 56 or 56% in your e-reader; Find any non-spoilery sentence(s) and post.
This week’s book is Time Capsule by Ideas With Ink:
Life Became His Poetry. Poetry Became His Life. Captivating Poetry and Prose collection by 16-year-old Canadian teenager.
The pain, the betrayal, lost friendships, first unrequited love bled from his soul, seeped through his fingers and into the words and sentences on a laptop. The images born in his mind lived on paper.
Three years of poetry filled with despair and hope went into this book and were conserved as the time capsule of his teenagehood.
Writing gave him a purpose to live, a desire to share his thoughts, emotions, and experiences, a will to connect with the world through rhythm and line.
The wonderful images and exceptional depth of the topics give a reader an amazing path to explore love, death, dreams and life itself through the eyes and soul of a modern teen.
Recently I also published the featuring author with him here!
He is a stranger to summer for his heart lies in
Within the Red Sea,
Where the vermillion ruler Dealt Russian roulette to jets Of rusted mouths.
Agape mines wore
The green-lurching tremors Amidst devilish axes
That betrayed their Pine-mothers with whiskers.
Into shadowy honey, Amber diadem
For the nuptial ant-queen.
