Byron Bay, Australia (PRWEB) November 24, 2014
An artist of many forms, Melody Lemond has only recently discovered that the written word could be a springboard for sharing — where one’s thoughts, dreams, aspirations, and soul intentions can find a foothold in reality. It was her sojourn with a welcoming forum of word wielders — fellow poets in social media — that brought her to the wonderful world of finely crafted words.
Inspired by her fellows in social media, Lemond took the plunge into word-crafting. Her works met with such praise from her peers that she felt encouraged to share them in “Sea Moon Poem Shapes” (published by Xlibris AU). A collation of mystical poetry shrouded in flowing shapes, her book explores a range of themes such as the beauty of dance, the power of music, of theatre and of what she sees as “our relationship with nature and our own transformation.” It also includes tributes of a personal nature, one to Marcel Marceau and another to Orlando, a blind actor.
Complemented by Jean-Paul Avisse’s artwork, Lemond’s poems take on elegant, flowing shapes that embrace their original content. A work of contemporary poetry, “Sea Moon Poem Shapes” is immediate in its messages and the meanings it conveys, while maintaining an air of the mystical.

About the Author
Melody Lemond was born in Sydney, Australia, on October 2, 1950, into a large family - mostly of females. During the earlier part of the 1970s, she took yoga, dance and drama workshops. Then, after buying a donkey named Abdul and she travelled the ‘bush’ regions with her sister, giving drama workshops for children in isolated towns. In the mid-70s, she was drawn to the world of theatre in Sydney. During the early 80s, Lemond, continuing her writing and reading, assisted unemployed artists of all mediums to access government grants for group projects as promised by the prime minister of the time. In 1984, Lemond gave birth to a son, now a scientist and avid surfer. And in 1987 she gave birth to a daughter, now a trained and talented dancer and choreographer. She is presently living in Byron Bay, close to the sea and to like-minded people. As with her now grown children, she is riding the waves with anticipation and readiness.
