POMEGRANATE FLESH


IN THIS BOOK


i've set so many fires

in the deepest desires

on this road

and am close to what they hold-

the most for human love

and equal revolution

without the bloody fist and glove

of brutal evolution.

see, how the gold cartel caravan

and religions in corrupt polarity

have usurped the pagan

shrines of all humanity-

making us serfs again

in unframed Lothlorien,

in chains that were strings,

ciliced by mortifications mesh,

while our mind and limbs

long for love's pomegranate flesh.


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."

Wooded Windows

Paperback, 162 Pages

The poems in this book reflect on my journey through life, love, the Arab Spring and Occupy Movement. As a socialist and one of the 99%, this book is about love, social revolution and the eternal struggle for equality and justice. In these poems, I look into and out of the wooded windows of the past, present and future and become romantic and erotic, political and spiritual. I am a pagan peasant in this poverty and paradise, chained to the same land in serfdom, but trying to climb the tree of life and reach the branches of freedom.

MAVERICKS (book)



Print: £12.00




Download: £3.50




Essentially, these poems are about Man and Woman and Love. Romantic and sometimes intimate, they leave their own footsteps in the rural and industrial landscape of today which resonate our profound need to love and be loved, a need that transcends all attempts to homogenise us into one cultural identity. In these poems romance, chivalry and passion come to life. The Ranger's mind enjoys its exile in the golden forest of Lothlorien wandering through the Pre Raphaelite images. His mythical and mystical ideals, fuse with our thirst for realism and the alienation of pod life in this matrix of Metropolis. Love is more than a singles bar at the end of a hard working week. It is real and tangible, and like life, it makes mistakes. In these poems of love remembered, love now and love to be, exile ends and life begins again.. ~ Strider ~

Inside Out Out (book)



Print: £9.97




Download: £3.75




In these poems about love, life and human conflict, the world is seen from the Inside Out. We are mortal beads, acting on the strings of time. In moments of epiphany, all becomes transparent. Dublin's likeable whores, swap wisdom's with old philosophers, while poems about the Cold War, Gaza, CND and life question our spirituality with whispers from Shamen and the Sacred Feminine. Heroes, like JFK, Martin Luther King, Lenin and Che, meet death too soon and find their truths have been betrayed by a society which is now too compounded and complex, but they left us seeds of hope to use, if we don't destroy their infant shoots. The Love poems here, are always romantic and real and sometimes erotic and mystical.They hold everything together with their gentle glueing of emotions. Each thought becomes a grain of sand, that joins its brothers and sisters on the beach, so the whole, makes us what we are, while the tides of time, take us where we are going..Strider.

Aspects Of Love (book)



Print: £7.99




Download: £2.50




I have published single poems before in anthologies, magazines and the poetry website, Secret Attic, as a competition finalist and prize winner.We all find love at some point on this life's road. In these poems, I explore this complex journey of feelings, emotions and hopes lived out between two shared souls. Each poem is a cove on loves myriad path, inviting the reader to come in and share its succulent sweetness and dark despair. I have tried to touch that nerve in each of us, in a way that is romantic but real, traditional yet modern. Some of these poems are sensual and erotic, but they all try to convey honest meaning and understanding. This is a journey of love found, lived, lost and found again. From pleasures peak to the wilderness and back. Love is the door we keep open inside and hope will never close, for to love and be loved, means we are not alone. Welcome and well met ~Strider~Love is a canvas furnished by Nature and embroidered by imagination~ Voltaire~

  2. My FB Friend Cliff Adamson summed up my poetry and books with these wonderful words of stunning insight:

    "Your writings are genius mate, pure and simple, the best I have seen. You touch on honesty, desire, aspiration and attainmant.. in a to...tally romantic way, the 'ladies' love this epheral insight into human emotion.
    You 'capture' evocations of 'self' that go unspoken.. mosaics of thought that fragment into lost memories of time, continue to 'catch' them and keep them safe for our dreamings."

    Thankye Cliff!!
