Terse Verse Tuesday: Poems and Tirades

I like the convenience of eBooks, but they sure do mess up poetry, especially if you want to place pictures along with them.

Formatting poetry is difficult enough in a word document. Often each page needs to be made into a new section if you want the text to be in a different configuration, but that would guarantee that the picture you just anchored (or thought you did) won’t wind up on a completely different page.

And to top it off, once you get one picture to work and you think to yourself, “OK. That works, so all I have to do is the same thing for all of them.” you realize that it is never that easy.

So, I create yet another version, check it with my previewer, and then my ereader, then …

Do it all again.


Leon Stevens is a multi-genre author, composer, guitarist, songwriter, and an artist, with a Bachelor of Music and Education. He published his first book of poetry, Lines by Leon: Poems, Prose, and Pictures in January 2020, followed by a book of original classical guitar compositions, Journeys, and a short story collection of science fiction/post-apocalyptic tales called The Knot at the End of the Rope and Other Short Stories. His newest publications are the novella trilogy, The View from Here, which is a continuation of one of his short stories, and a new collection of poetry titled, A Wonder of Words.
