Poems from a Blue Tin Box: An Autobiography in Poetry by Tommy Chase Harrell PDF

By Tommy Chase Harrell

while Tommy requested me to write down the foreword to Poems from a Blue Tin field, I conveniently agreed as a father might. My brain estimated the blue field that held anything from a South Carolinian vintage shop saved through Tommy’s grandmother and captured by way of him as a souvenir - as boys do. Now, after a boyhood of trials yet ever current love from kinfolk, buddies, and associates, after a trip via southern faculties, after essays, theses, and starting dissertations, after memorizing many scripts and offering perfect traces and songs as a scholarship pupil on the American Musical and Dramatics Academy; after seeing the realm and operating domestic to Bermuda, his consistent sanctuary for relaxation and peace, comes a brand new explosion of autobiographical poems from my son. I do think that every little thing coming up from our person and collective spirit even if expressed in poetry, prose, motion, or lyric, happening after this present day, is blended with the inescapable revival of liberation and desire pulsing via our nations.

Tommy Harrell’s first anthology of autobiographical poems rises to this attempt and displays a contemporary poet’s look for solutions to a myriad of questions on one’s trip. they're a real summoning of his thoughts, goals, reflections and feelings. In purple Silk, his certain viewers during the clear out of You Tube, fb, and the overall net, will effortlessly relate the questions in their urban lifestyles event. they're going to additionally realize the lyrical caliber of this previous model love letter wrapped during this poem. The Bell can proportion the pages of hymns, historic and glossy, and fill us with desire. we will now, as I do, rejoice the brain spring of poetic ambition that welled forth from inside him whereas facing his trip of lifestyles. He supplies the realm a bit of him. He ultimately stocks his hand-written poems from his blue tin field. I take into accout now as I write this foreword, a poem written to me circa 1989. it truly is proudly framed at the wall within the Somerset apartment. It reads partially, “avoid the quiet baby who attempts to talk to you.” i'm convinced he wrote these phrases simply because he used to be no longer able to percentage his paintings and emotions yet.
