A Poem A Day #365 – Special Bonus Episode: A Poem for Every Day of the Year

In this bonus episode of the podcast Mark marks the occasion of the 365th episode of “A Poem A Day” and he talks about the experience of reciting a poem every day for a year and the fact that he has now shared just as many poems as there are days of the year. Mark also once again shares his poem “It’s a tradition” which was taken from Mark’s poetry collection ‘The Dreamer and The Dream’ which was published in 2015 by Zeloo Media.

Today I shared the 365th episode of “A Poem A Day” on my podcast “Mark The Poet – The Podcast” – meaning that there is now literally a poem to be listened to for every day of the year. A Poem A Day #365 is my poem “It’s a Tradition“, which is taken from my book of poetry “The Dreamer and The Dream” which was published in 2015. So, now that I have posted a poem for every day of the year, is that it? I have been reciting poems for a year now – starting with my first book “Poet of the Sphere”, then from “The Sound of Mark”, then from “The Eternal Boy”, and now from “The Dreamer and The Dream” – so what’s next? Huh? Well, I carry on, of course! There are still many more poems to share from my books and from my website http://MarkThePoet.Me so I will carry on doing what I have been doing until I am told otherwise. If you have listened to any of the poems that I have published on my podcast every day via Spotify, Amazon, Anchor, or on iTunes I just want to say thanks for listening and I hope you like what you hear! ๐Ÿ˜Š

Poet of the Sphere/Mark The Poet: one and the same

"Hi everyone, I'm Mark Hastings...
I'm afraid I'm not someone who plays an instrument or sings;
however what I am, what I love
and what I one day hope to be
is a poet and a dreamer who can move the world with my poetry..."

- "The Poet" by Mark Hastings,
From my book 'Poet of the Sphere',
First published in 2012

This verse of poetry from my poem "The Poet", which is also the description on the back of my first poetry collection 'Poet of the Sphere', describes me when I first started writing poetry, and who I still am and who I still want to be to this day. Granted I may have made some missteps along the way, I may have made some mistakes; but I still hope that I have been a source of hope and inspiration for others and that I will continue to be.

I have published 12 books over the course of the last 10 years - filled with poetry, stories, inspiration, characters, recollections, tales of fantasy mixed with personal experiences - but no matter what I have written everything has within it not just me but those whom I have met throughout my life and ingrained more so than could ever be imagined.

I have always loved sharing experiences with others and occasionally capturing moments of time with others so that others can read and relive those experiences through the lens of my poetic eye. Alot of the poems that I have written have been read by many people, but some have never been read by anyone other than who they were written and intended for - but no matter who reads, or listens to my poem for that matter, I hope that I have left my mark upon the heart of those who have felt something from the touch of my words upon their soul.

All 12 of my books are available to buy on Amazon and a great many of my poems new and old can be read @markthepoet and some can even be heard on Spotify being recited by me on "Mark The Poet - The Podcast" - which is essentially a poetic trip down memory lane in which I recite a poem from one of my books every day.

Happy reading and happy listening!

-Mark ๐Ÿ˜Š

“Bench Mark of a Book”

As I customarily do, not long ago I left a signed copy of my new book POET of the Multiverse for someone to find - and I have done the same thing multiple times over the last 10 years for each and every one of my 12 books. Today I left a copy of POET of the Multiverse on a park-bench at the exact spot where the cover photo for the book was taken - how's that for poetic? Anyway, whoever it is who gets lucky enough to find the signed copy of my book that I just left... Happy reading! โ˜บ๏ธ

My new book ‘Poet of the Multiverse’ – coming soon…

Hello Friends!

It is my great pleasure to be able to once again announce the publication of a new book of my poetry, entitled... POET of the Multiverse! POET of the Multiverse is a collection of poems - some that can be found on MarkThePoet.Me, some that can only be found exclusively within the pages of my new book, and one or two that you may only have read if have a copy of my first poetry collection Poet of the Sphere.

The intention of the poems within POET of the Multiverse is to be a celebration, of sorts. You see, it has been 10 years since I got my first book, Poet of the Sphere, published and my journey as a writer from then to now has been incredible, amazing, unbelievable, fulfilling, gratifying, and epic in so many ways. I have written 12 books since 2012 - filled with poetry, short-stories, novellas; however, no matter what I have written, poetry has always been my first love and the way that I choose to express myself and share the unfiltered inspiration within me.

Since 2022 marks the 10th anniversary of the publication of my first book I decided to put together a brand new collection of poems that I hope give people an insight into who I am as a person, as a poet, as a writer, at the same time reflecting upon the poetic journey that I have been on since I first became an author. And I hope that everybody enjoys reading every verse of the multitude of verses to be found within the poems of my new book, POET of the Multiverse.

The paperback version of POET of the Multiverse will be out soon, but if you cannot wait to get yourself a copy then you can get the ebook version right now for Kindle on Amazon: here

I hope you like what you read! โ˜บ
