Daniel Michael Hermon Releases New Book, 'Travelling in the Mind'
Poet and author Daniel Michael Hermon takes readers on a worthwhile literary journey with his anthology of poetry and lyrical prose, Travelling in the Mind. Like a painter composing the lines and filling in the colors of a portrait image, he weaves each piece in this collection with emotion and intimacy.
Made available through Xlibris since November 2011, this book will endlessly captivate readers with its meaningful verses. In "The Train to Nowhere", he puts across: To the train to nowhere / The steam locomotive has buffers / Like a giant's mighty hands / This train is stuck in time and space / Majestic in an old fashion way / Until it falls apart /Down Torrington way in Devon. That's only from one of his many poems sweltering with messages and substance that will engulf readers into the depths of his soul.
Hermon sharpens the dullness that sometimes come with love, life and loss with attainable fluency and deftness. With these themes intertwined together, each poem in Travelling in the Mind defines the ridges and traces the contours of the written word. "Art Noir" is darkly written yet ornately beautiful at the same time. With a sudden shift in atmosphere, "A Sunrise Cycle Ride" takes the reader to a "deep space where the sun slowly comes up and as the way becomes clear, day light ensues."
Travelling in the Mind is a journey of sorts and an odyssey of the soul, not only for Hermon, but also for the readers themselves. "In a life defined by departures and arrivals, the finish line beckons pushing on is crossed, unseen by any other competitor." - The Racing Cyclist
