Tara Kimberley Torme writes: “I was born in Montreal, Quebec
I moved to Vancouver, BC in March 1992 shortly before I turned 15 years old
I have been writing poetry since I was around 8 years old
I have written over 150 poems since childhood
I received my B.A. in English from UBC in May 2001
I received my publishing diploma from Langara College in June 2006

In 2006 I self published a book of my poetry called A Series Of Short Stories and Poems under the name of T K Torme which is available at amazon.com

I am currently working on editing all of my older poetry as well write several newer ones for myself for future publication

I have several poetry books that I am currently working on at the moment – it is a long process as I write poems that suit my current mood state and eventually I will decided which collection of poetry I am going to put them in.”

Featured Poem:

DeBolt

He comes out

Final race

 

Men’s 200 M

To win gold

 

7 Olympic gold

To his name

 

Here to collect

Two more gold

 

De Grasse runs

In lane 4

 

The crowd roars

At Bolt’s name

 

He takes his hand –

Shushes the crowd

 

Gun sounds off:

Bolt in lead

 

Flash of red shoes

On the lane

 

He wins the race

With ease:

 

Bolt 200 triple

Going for 9 gold

De Grasse wins silver

 

De Grasse and Bolt –

Two great runners:

 

DeBolt will always live on

Forever. Olympic history

 

A piece of Bolt

Lightning strikes

 

Little brother from Canada

Best race already written

 

Victory lap for Bolt

With Jamaican and Brazil flag

Tony Frisby:

Having left school in Waterford at 14, Tony Frisby emigrated to England a few years later where he worked a labourer, general handyman, fruit picker, fitter’s mate, sewage worker, waiter then cook in a London Wimpy Bar until finally gaining a toe hold in the white collar world.

Solvent at last, he eventually ‘returned’ to education in the mid-eighties finally graduating from Brunel with a Masters in Renaissance and Modern Literature before embarking on a PhD in Northern Irish Poetry.

However, by now smitten by the poetic form, he abandoned his academic studies to concentrate on writing poetry rather than commenting on it.

He now lives on the South Coast where he is currently working on the fifth in a ten part series of ‘Letters’ poems written about and from, this, his ‘second’ place.

In Gaelic :

Sac Eile móna      

Is fada an bóthar
ón Trá Ar ais ag Trá Mhór

leis na haillte bána ag Black Rock.
Agus is leor in aghaidh na bliana

ós rud é codlata ceann a scannáin ladhar
agus cowboy

ag Ma Crosby ar Coliseum Pictiúrlann
aice Túr Raghnaill.

Ach tá sé aon turas ar chor ar bith
i mo shúil aigne;

sa-am a thógann sé
a mheabhrú Uncail Micky i bPort Lách,

Is féidir liom a bheith ann agus ar ais le sac eile
a móna fearr triomaithe

téamh an ruacain mo chroí.

English translation:

Another sack of turf

It’s a long road from the Back Strand at Tramore/

to the white cliffs at Black Rock.

And it’s many a year /since sleeping head to toe and cowboy films

at Ma Crosby’s Coliseum Cinema near Reginald’s Tower.

But it’s no journey at all in my minds eye;

for in the time it takes to remember Uncle Micky in Portlaw,

I can be there and back with another sack of his best dried turf

warming the cockles of my heart.

Beginning; The End

In the continual flow

of life’s spiral,

we see ourselves

reflected in the light

of cosmic ether:

glowing, pure, immortal.

Though our mortal bodies

die, there is no death.

Passing between worlds

with the light speed

of soul ~ ‘tis then we are whole.

Mortal vessel, unable

to transcend, must be

left behind, will never mend.

The beginning, is always

found at the end.
