CLITHEROE, United Kingdom (PRWEB) January 29, 2013
Like a painter composing the lines and filling in the colors of a portrait image, poet Michael Hermon neatly knits a crochet of words in his latest anthology of poetry and lyrical prose, Travelling in the Mind.
To the train to nowhere,
The steam locomotive has buffers,
Like a giant’s mighty hands,
This train is stuck in time and space,
Majestic in an old fashion way,
Until it falls apart,
Down Torrington way in Devon.
- The Train to Nowhere
Hermon sharpens the dullness that sometimes come with love, life and loss with attainable fluency and deftness. With these themes intertwined together, each poem in Travelling in the Mind defines the ridges and traces the contours of the written word. “Art Noir” is darkly written yet ornately beautiful at the same time. With a sudden shift in atmosphere, “A Sunrise Cycle Ride” takes the reader to a “deep space where the sun slowly comes up and as the way becomes clear, day light ensues.”
Travelling in the Mind is a journey of sorts and an odyssey of the soul, not only for Hermon, but also for the readers themselves. In a life defined by departures and arrivals,
“the finish line beckons
pushing on is crossed,
unseen by any other competitor.”
- The Racing Cyclist
Travelling in the Mind will be featured at the 2012 Book Expo America in New York City on June 5-8, 2012.

Daniel Hermon leads a solitary life in the small town of Clitheroe, Lancanshire, England. He was first inspired to write poems by an email saying “You could win £50,000 just by writing a poem”. From there, his poetry took on a life of its own. His most recent poems are inspired by long summer cycling holidays. Amongst the poets, he looks up to John Cooper Clarke of Manchester, England.
