Frank Watson's New Poetry Book, SEAS TO MULBERRIES, is Now Available
New York, NY, December 13, 2013 -- Frank Watson draws thousands of followers with a "deceptively simple magic..." His short form micropoetry on Twitter "is like gold leaves floating in the wind." His most recent poetry collection Seas to Mulberries (Plum White Press) is receiving more accolades.
"....It's refreshing to see his words in a bound format....readers will find Seas to Mulberries...illuminating." His work is notable for its concise, yet powerful and deep imagery and emotional force. Haiku-like short poems, usually of 3-6 lines, focus on making a sudden impact while leaving a lingering impression of an image and a feeling. It continues to receive a very positive response from thousands of followers on Twitter, getting retweeted regularly and receiving multiple mentions.
In a journey across the landscapes of time and place, between the changes in life like the evolution of sand and sea, Watson's poetry tells of the human heart through tiny stories and images that linger in the mind as a meditation of the soul.
Watson's earlier work includes One Hundred Leaves, a translation of a Japanese poetry anthology compiled in the 13th century. Including one poem each from one hundred poets living from the 7th century to the 13th century, the book covers a wide array of themes and personal styles. One Hundred Leaves is a new translation, complete with extensive notes, the original Japanese in calligraphic font, the pronunciation, and side-by-side art work beautifully illustrating each poem's theme.
He is also editor of Poetry Nook, a monthly journal seeking the best poetry and art that captures the interaction between the senses-of images, sounds, tastes, smells, touch-and emotions. Frank Watson was born in Venice, California and now lives in New York City. He enjoys literature, art, calligraphy, history, jazz, international culture, and travel. His work has appeared in various literary journals, anthologies, e-zines, and literary blogs.
