Helen Hagemann's Poetry & Prose

Jorge Luis Borges

"I have always imagined that paradise
will be a kind of library."

Diana Hartog

"The poet is ecstatic, having dreamt of this visit for weeks.
He takes Erato's face, dribbling and wild, between his hands
and kisses her gently as if she were a runaway teenager."

"LATEST NEWS" Helen Hagemann's new full-length poetry collection of Arc & Shadow published by Sunline Press, October 6, 2013.

Surveyors of Arc and Shadow

 

               The Rip Bridge



The new bridge kisses each lip of sand,

joining shores of our youth. Days spent swimming

from Jetty Rd wharf to timber-decks, across

tide-lines, sandbars, Wagstaffe to Pretty Beach.

In the scheme of things, engineer's plans,

our errant bodies had already mapped

the bridge's arc and shadow.

 


 

Services:

  • Lecture/Talk: I can combine a reading with a talk about poetry, or simply give a talk about any aspect of poetry your group would like to explore.Subjects that I might cover are: Finding inspiration, where to look and why? Where do poems come from? Why all the fuss about prose poetry? What makes a good poem? What's going on in the contemporary poetry world? The business side of poetry i.e. getting your work out there, being published and noticed.
