#RomancingSeptember Day 7 Love Aflame by Pamela Beckford @poetrybypamela

Welcome to Day 7 Of #RomancingSeptember

2015 cover

Our guest today is Pamela Beckford and her book of love poems called Love Aflame.

Love Aflame

Where is your home town?

I live in Northeast Indiana

How long have you been writing romance?

I started about 3 years ago writing poetry and it quickly became love poetry

What is your favourite sub-genre of romance?

I like something with a good story, not just romance – I’m not much of an erotica reader though.

Love Aflame is a books of poems, how many are there?

First I use various poetic forms. It sounds like a short poem would be easier to write, but I find that restricting the number of syllables can force me to be very intentional with my words to get the desired effect. I do include a description of each poetic form for the readers though. There are 60 poems about love and unrequited love.

What inspires your poetry?

I have a muse and I get ideas from friends and their trials and their lives with their lovers

Tell us your favourite short poem from this collection and why?

His and Hers – I am pleased with the word choices and the way they compare and contrast between His and Hers.

Which long poem do readers like best from the book?

“If” is a poem that dreams of what could be – of what you are longing for.

Can you write us a short romantic poem about September?  

Here is a Tanka (5-7-5-7-7)

 September Spirits


Scorned and heartbroken

Tears burn canyons down my cheeks

September spirits

Dance ‘round the fire of desire

E’en though I know it’s in vain


Tell us what you are working on at the moment.

I’m working on a new collection that I think will be titled Symphony of Love. Again, it will be a collection of short poems, many with a musical theme fitting into the love theme.

  2. Have enjoyed reading this and some of your poems. Just wondering how hard it is to get the poems formatted for kindle etc as I know I have handed all that over to a techie person because it drove me mad. LOL. Best of luck ❤


  3. A book of poetry…Wow, I am so impressed! Poetry is difficult to write, as you mentioned; on the other hand, nothing is more romantic than a poem. So glad to make your acquaintance on the tour, Pamela. Will follow you on SM. (My brother lives in Indiana; I’m originally from Illinois.)
