A Handful of Poetry / Een Handvol Poëzie
Lees hier het Brugsch Handelsblad over “Een handvol Poëzie” van Marcus Cumberlege.
Met dank aan Stefan Vankerkhoven in het Brugsch Handelsblad van vrijdag 13 mei 2016
Marcus Cumberlege has written much in lyrical stanzas, but he is no stranger to prose poetry, cut-up, automatic writing, haiku, concrete and the extended line.
For nearly forty years he has been a familiar figure in Bruges, collaborating with poets, artists and musicians, organizing readings and encouraging the younger generation. He has a daughter, married and living in France.
For many years Marcus has been getting up before dawn and writing his own meditations and prayers for personal use. Their outspokenly spiritual content is destined to overcome “morning blues” and make the reader “feel good” – cheerful, lively and able to face the day ahead with joy. Marcus regards Morning Meditations as his most important single published work to date.
You may download Morning Meditations here. Feel free to print it out and use it as you wish. Marcus make no charge whatsoever for the use of these texts and only asks that his name be mentioned if they are reprinted.
