Poetry Block: Podunk Moon by Erin Geil

It's been a little while, but I'm thrilled to bring my Poetry Block feature back to The Writing Greyhound with a brand new instalment featuring the lovely Erin Geil.

If you missed the last feature from Rhea Arielle, you can catch up with that here.

Erin Geil is pleased to share an exclusive poem with TWG readers, titled 'Limbo of Us'. You can find her work below!

Limbo of Us

Waiting for words
Of something
Meaning more
There is weight
To my breath
Holding me
Down inside, an
Anchor
Plummeting
To a place
Never touched.
The way his
Fingers moved
Into my hand,
Marking me,
But not with
His scent, or his
Body, but with
His spirit.
A spiritual marking.
Waiting for words
To quiet the stirring
Of the shadows
That pass through
The north of me,
To the east
Of that center
The south
Of my wandering
And into the
West of thoughts.
Waiting for words,
Limbo of us.

About Podunk Moon

podunk-moon, erin-geil, poetry, anthology

Podunk Moon is an anthology of mostly non-fiction free-verse poetry starting in 2016 and time travelling back through the years ending in 2003. A time capsule of heartache, depression, and the overall state of confusion that comes with being in your twenties. An excerpt from the suspense thriller novel, The Great American, follows after, leaving the reader with a taste of something that is altogether a darkly different breed of beast.

Podunk Moon is available to buy now.

About Erin Geil

erin-geil, poet

Erin Geil started creating poetry before she was able to hold a pencil in her hands or make much sense of the alphabet. A very patient and kind mother played secretary to a very insistent four-year-old who wanted to rhyme about the ins and outs of bathroom behaviour. She evolved over the next three decades and graduated to more appropriate poetry topics such as sex, depression, and love gone horribly wrong. Currently, she is hard at work finishing up several projects. A prompt book entitled, The 30 Something’s Guide: Abandoning Baggage Through Writing; her prized “child” of thirteen years, a suspense thriller novel, The Great American; and finally, a poetry book entitled, Rooted.

If you are interested in keeping in touch with Erin, you can follow her musings over on Instagram.
