Authors to gather in Georgetown

Join American poet Kevin Trammel, along with other local authors, at the “Author’s Forum” on Saturday, July 19 at the El Dorado County Library,6680 Orleans St. in Georgetown, where he will be discussing his new book of poetry and art, “Gathered Rain.”

“Gathered Rain”  is a first offering by this new American poet whose work revitalizes the poetry scene with guileless and refreshing epiphanies of the natural world.

Poems in the book, in a zen-like manner, describe ordinary experiences such as wind stirring in the pines, the gaze of a bull in a meadow or the fragrance of frost-covered lilacs, imparting a calmness that derails cynicism and renews delight, experiences which are highly prized but often seem elusive in daily life.

While tragedy and hope compete for one’s attention, and the glitz and glamor of the entertainment industry batter the mind, the basic desire for a quiet refuge in the profundity of simple things seems overlooked, sometimes disdainfully so. Through the art and poetry of “Gathered Rain,” Trammel succeeds in weaving together a cozy tapestry of treasured moments offering insight and soothing imagery for the relief of the world-weary traveler.

“I wrote this book primarily for those who, like me, love the cozy company of a good book on a rainy night, or peaceful reflection on a sunny day in the garden,” Trammel said.

“Gathered Rain”  is now available for purchase at Amazon.com.

Trammel has been writing poetry for 30 years. He studied philosophy, physics, music and literature in college to varying degrees of success in his youth, then wandered from odd-job to odd-job while searching for answers to the questions that he could not find in academia.

Writing was a constant for him. Having written for the online journal Flowerwatch.net for several years, he has come to appreciate the need for a return to the roots of life in the vital flow of the natural world through contemplation and the practice of the fundamental principles it continually exhibits.

He offers simplicity and elegance through a delightfully musical style of writing. As a student of philosophy and esotericism for many years, he has found a voice in the idea that the most profound principles are also the most common and are evident in the world around us.

“Gathered Rain”  is now available for purchase at Amazon.com.
