Hester

HESTER      Growing up in Asheville,  N.C. in the 50’s and 60’s seemed, at the time, to be filled with a rhythm of adventure and strange encounters sprinkled with an assortment of particularly interesting and somewhat odd characters. One of those persons who fascinated me as a child was my father’s friend “Hester. “       My dad was about as straight an arrow as anyone could find. He seemed to a preadolescent, somewhat indolent son, frankly boring. Looking back from a perspective of 70 years, I…See More

Blind Man's Bluff

According to the Frank C. Brown Collection of North Carolina Folklore, the game Blind Man's Bluff is as old as the 16th Century. It was a game I never liked playing as a kid. I was always afraid someone would get hurt-namely me! Its one of those games that makes grown-ups yell things like "Somebodys going to…See More

Allan Wolf commented on Rob Neufeld's group Sound-and-Sense Seekers
"This group is right down my alley, as I seek to define poetry. Words have already failed in their frailty. The definition seems to encompass God, and that will take more tools than written language. The more I learn to write the more I learn…"

ASHEVILLE: IN VERSE

I'd really like to place this post in every category on The Read, but perhaps "Our Cultural Community" is the best match.I'm Allan Wolf, author/poet living in Asheville. I've been picking at a book of verse about Asheville ever since I moved here 20-some years ago. "Thought Poems" in something of a manic and athletic style, like Thomas Wolfe himself. Here's the question I'd like to put on the table:What topics MUST be covered? Ex: Transportation (trolley car to AT); famous corpses (Wolfe, O.…See More

Rob Neufeld replied to Allan Wolf's discussion ASHEVILLE: IN VERSE in the group Creative Publishing
"What comes to my mind, Allan, is history told in verse by characters in character. Because that would give you the opportunity to play very loosely and wildly with the characters' personality and speech quirks. It's interesting thinking…"
