Nolan P. Holloway.

“Originally from NY (Queens) but now make my home in Stone Mountain GA.  I am now a grandfather and loving it.  The art of writing was gifted to me in 2010 and I have been blessed to have two published works.   The poems just came pouring out and I had to try and keep up (smile).  I had so much material and needed an outlet.  So I began posted my poetry online with positive results.  A friend who is writer of books and plays suggested I get published.  In my exhaustive research a friend from NY has her own publishing company.  But she had never worked with poetry.  I sent some pieces and she was impressed so the first book, “Into My Rotation, A Collection of Scribes” was produced.  My scribes have been part of anthologies through various poetry sites.  Though my online present I entered a contest on site named Creative Talent Unleashed.  Did not win but got a discounted publishing contract.  And the second book “Journey To The Poetic Light, Illuminations” was released in January 2015. 

This third project is proving much more intense and is coming slowly.  But my love of poetry continues and I will work very hard at perfecting my “voice”.

Love is the Pain of Feverish Flowers

Love is
the pain of feverish flowers.

Somewhere in the heart
suffering from the colorful rainbow’s words.

A silver arrow
that flew into the wound festered by the sunlight.

The pain of the wound
is sometimes like a sadness

Love is
the pain of feverish flowers.

Cheonhak Kwon (C)
