Nocturnes

By Jaye Tomas

Poetry | Paperback


"Nocturnes move amidst the night-time multitude persistently unnoticed in the greying light Masks fixed in place, smiles too Hiding a glittering malevolence the swirl of smoke blown back into the bottle and held with incantations old as iron..." Very pleased to offer a snippet of the signature verse from my first (*please note the optimism here!*) book. Thank you to everyone who has read and supported my work.



Jaye Tomas has been a "scribbler" all of her life, but the Internet provided a way to more easily share it. Creating Chimera Poetry (blog & facebook page) has been an incredible experience. The fact that anyone reads what she writes is a constant source of amazement and gratitude to her. She has recently published her first book of poetry and is hard at work on the second. The ink is always fighting to be heard.... Her biggest obsession is books and her reading tastes are eclectic to say the least: Tolkien, Lovecraft, Gaiman, Plath, Ellison, Christie, Aaronovitch, Yeats, Blake, King, Barker, Straub, Lopez, Pyper, Maugham, Poznansky, Funke, Taylor .....to name a very few. Originally from the windy suburbs of Chicago she now resides in the UK. Lately she has been casting her eyes in the direction of Italy, but hasn't completely settled on that.....yet. It may be back to the USA, it may be Edinburgh, it may be Gallifrey..... the beauty of the story is in the journey, not the arrival.

lol...I never was myself either. It just happens to be the way my mind works. In snippets :) No rhyming, just writing. Appreciate you taking the time to look though! :)

No, thank you. Your cover is gorgeous. It really made my day.

About your poetry, maybe you could get into writing song lyrics and selling them to musicians. That would be pretty cool.
