Poetry book no. I (Audiobook)

 Poetry book no. I audiobook album art. A blackhole and pink roses.My poetry book no. I has been out as an audiobook since November 19 on my blog and streaming services. And still, I haven’t added the YouTube Lyric Video version to my blog. Am sorry for being so late with it… But I will do it now so it is all in one place. Also I am going to talk about the poetry itself a bit. And then I will tell you what mused it and what I wanted it to be like. How it was born? Why is it poetry of madness through unrequited love.

You can listen to it on Spotify first without the spoilers and come back and check it out here.

New Poetry Book Coming Soon

Cover art of the new poetry book on a larger scale for marketing purposes.

I am happy to announce that my new poetry book will come out on 05.02.2023. It will be available on both: this blog and as an audiobook on streaming services such as YouTube and Spotify. Am also on iTunes, Tidal, Instagram, TikTok and many other services if you find me by my name “of Stardust and the Beasts”. Follow me on those to get instant notifications when my new work comes out.

In this post I will showcase the cover art for the upcoming release and I have uploaded two short previews of the audiobook. This time they are also long enough to upload separately. In this sense it will be a bit different from my last poetry book. Last time streaming services told me it was not acceptable lengthwise (less than 60 seconds each).  So I had to upload 10 poems in one file…. UGH

Poetry Book no I – ACT I

Poetry book no. 1. ACT 1 Background, blue butterflies, spiders and spiderwebs

Omg, omg, omg !!! Finally, after so many years of dreaming… You know, the kind when you lay in the bed just imagining… making up worlds and places. Do people still do that? I can surely say that I have spent the majority of my life daydreaming, being told that it was in vain… But well, I can now say that I do have a poetry book.

I must confess, it is not in the format I had originally imagined it to be. Why? Because rather than traditionally publishing it to fulfill the dream. I published it on my blog and streaming services for free… Didn’t think that I would ever show my voice, so audiobooks were a surprise for me too… For so far I had only sung or recited poems into the void of my solitude. When nobody was around to judge.  However… I truly, well… kind of… am happy with it.

Happy enough for the first book.

Poetry Book no I – ACT II

Cover for the ACT II. Includes blue butterflies, spiders and spiderwebs.

Omg, omg, omg !!! Finally, after so many years of dreaming… You know, the kind where you lay in the bed just imagining… making up worlds and places. Do people still do that? I can surely say that I have spent the majority of my life daydreaming, being told that it was in vain… But well, I can now say that I do have a poetry book.

The poems were too short to be uploaded separately… But they do tell a story in 20 of them separated into ACT I and ACT II. So to get the whole story you may want to read the other post first. Also there I talk more about the book itself.

Here, in this post…

In this act, I have focused on heartbreak and acceptance. 

Playing as I edit the post for final edits: SKYND.

Dead Poet – a Six-Sentence Story

another six-sentence story, a dead poet

Another week and another six-sentence story, a dead poet… Hmm… I wonder if this one will be about the poets or the readers. Perhaps a little bit of both… but I guess we will find out soon.

Listening as I write this one: Vitali – Chaconne (live) played by Emilie Autumn

This piece is also my baby, I really like this one. Some people can perhaps already tell that this was kind of inspired by the lovely artist I listened to here. My god the 16-year-old me loved her to bits.

Rules of the hop:
Write 6 Sentences. No more. No less.
Use the current week’s prompt word.

PROMPT WORD:  BOOKMARK

Others’ Stories can be read here. A few days later I noticed I forgot to add a link… Am sorry, it is here now.

All of my Sixes can be found here.

the Wonderful Blog I found the challenge from: our amazing GirlieOnTheEdge.

Six-sentence story – Ember

ember - six-sentence story excerpt

I just realized that Ember is my seventh (if I did not read wrong) six-sentence story. Originally I wanted to write a poem but lost track. I couldn’t make it long or short enough to qualify. So I ended up with this. I don’t know why but I am really into writing poetry and stories about unrequited love… Yes, I have felt it. But this is not the only love I have known, neither is the most significant one. 

The prompt was created by our wonderful girlieontheedge

Rules of the hop:
Write 6 Sentences. No more. No less.
Use the current week’s prompt word.
Link up at Wednesday’s post. Link goes live at 6:00 pm through Saturday late…
Spread the word and put in a good one to your fellow writers 

PROMPT WORD: LABYRINTH

Good Girl – this is a Short Poem

Poem - Good Girl

I don’t even know what to say or how to introduce this beautiful piece of mine. The only thing that I can say for sure is that I really-really like this short poem. Am also quite proud of the twist I managed to etch into it! I mean… read it… it is quite a kinky of a twist we have there… ain’t it?  Good Girl is a poem that does both: Makes my head itch and equally proud about what I wrote.

You can find other poems and stories as audiobooks on my YouTube channel and Spotify as well as on many other streaming services. Come and listen to me and follow me for instant updates when I upload something new.

Six-sentence story – FLUID

The six-sentence story, Fluid. Excerpt from the story.

This six-sentence story was born from the challenge produced by GirlieOnTheEdge with the following simple rules:

Write 6 Sentences. No more. No less.
Use the current week’s prompt word – FLUID

How was this Story Born?

I wanted to try out some kinky challenges. Was hoping to keep myself writing at least once a week besides the job that robbed me of my time… The muse of the girl in this story is me, the young girl in me. As always, as a writer… I have added a little over-romanticism and a sprinkle of fiction. For a fact… Such an encounter never happened.

Romantic Poem – She Still Lingers

The Romantic Poem - She Still LingersThere is a funny story with this particular romantic poem of mine. It goes as: Once upon a summery night. With equal parts of wine and music. I went out with a friend of mine… We drove the roads in Hiiumaa. Well, damn it. Yes, it is a lie… Already! We had a sober driver!!! He was the one doing the operating of moving machinery. There were three or four bottles of dry red wine.

MMM. WINE!!!

Elixir of life and good decisions if you ask me. Anyway… My friend invited a beautiful girl to hang out with us. I had never seen her before but as she sat down on the asphalt to roll herself a cigarette… her long blonde hair covering her face with the wind… Can you see where I am going with this?

Does this (Imagine a down arrow here) qualify as a poem too?! Oh, there are two… wow. You are lucky!
