Author EIQ just shared a new poem, “The Bonsai.” Here’s an excerpt of her thoughts on that post:
“I actually started writing this years ago. It used to make me feel full of myself. Not anymore. We’re all whatever we are. We can all feel however we feel. Plus, I do love bonsai.”
Follow the link to her site to read the poem, of course. You’ll also be able to read everything else she had to share on that post. Naturally, I’m always open to feedback here. Would you rather I post the whole poem here, too? A snippet?
Send me your ideas via the Contact Page. Or, find me on Twitter! And, if you have a similar blog or website, share your links. I love to see how other Indies are doing it.
“A Heart on Fire is a simple poem about the most difficult topic. So much has been written about Love yet it remains undefined. It can be felt even if it cannot be described. It can be present, even if it goes unrecognized. It’s one of the few things whose store increases by being given away … and it comes in many forms, not just romantic, intimate embraces.”
You can read the whole new poem, “A Heart on Fire,” and the rest of E. I. Q.’s musings by visiting the link above. Literally, every poem, as of now, she’s shared over on her site.

Eventually, when she has enough poems up on her site, it’s likely we’ll be publishing a collection of poetry. Partly because it feels like the right thing to do, partly because we have to make room for more poems! How many poems do you think a collection needs? I’m thinking at least 30. At the rate she’s going, we might be able to publish a collection this year! Of course, there’s a lot to do to get a book ready for publication ….
And, don’t worry. I haven’t forgotten. I’m still planning on sharing some insights on my journey as an indie publisher. It’s simply a matter of time, at this point. Because, you know … Life.
