The Vault of the Exalted
This is a poetry introduction to my book. Yes, I am writing a book, the title is The Exalted. Here is a little sneak peek introduction.
The Vault of the Exalted
There is a space
That I want to find
Where everything screeches to a halt
A secret vault
That only curiosity can discover
Where space hovers
A place that stands still
Where time unifies
A space defined by nil
Where molecules settle
But gravity ceases
A place not defined by space
For there is no definition
For it’s levity cannot be traced
Where everything ceases to be
Lost but still found
No being ever before
Used senses to explore
Of the things we know
And the impossible possibilities
Where no human will exalt
This is where you will find
The key to the secret vault
Very nice. Best wishes! (smiles)
You’re an inspiration to many Jennifer with your energy, enthusiasm and skill as a writer. Congrats on the book. Love the intro sneak peek here.
Thank you Ray. Such a lovely comment. The book is only in premature stages still a far way off but I’m excited to get it going!
I can imagine you are excited to get it started. Don’t know where you get you energy from. :).
Congrats again! That is such exciting news.
best of luck with your endeavor
Thank you. I’ve only just begun so there is still a long time to go.
The reader, uncertain at first
Marvels at the words in sight
Knows that in comparison he’s cursed
Yet in his heart, swoons with delight
Beautiful, thank you.
This promises to be an interesting book…good luck!
Thank you. I’m hoping so!
wow. I’m hooked.
Awesome. Good to hear. I hope to book can live up to the poem! 😉
Nice. Jen. 1 of my favorites so far.
I’m glad. A good one then since the content will be related to my book 😉
Cant wait. 🙂
Reblogged this on Arts Looking.
I’ll second that… this is one of my favorites so far. What a way to start your book!! Powerful, beautiful and magical… just the way you are 🙂
Thank you Michele. Such kind words!
Dear Jennifer, so well deserved. Even after I’ve turned the page I can still hear them. That’s a great sign!
A leech of an intro… Sucked me in!
I think it sets the foundation for a great piece of art!
Now I’m left awaiting the book. lol
Perfect. 😉 It will be a while since I’m not finished writing it!
Lovely poem. Wishing you much success with your book!

Great poem, Jennifer! You definitely have the writing skills to publish a book. Good luck in your quest for a novel! Also thanks for liking my post about enjoying lunch.
Thank you for your kind words.
I sure hope so 🙂 If they won’t take it, it will be an e book 🙂
Lunch is an important part of the day.
I love it!
Thank you. It’s the premise of the book as a whole.
Awesome! Can’t wait to see more!
I hope the book can hold up to the poem! lol
I will post the first 2 pages of the book later today. I want to see if it’s engaging..
Lovely poem.i hope your novel lets us know where to find the secret vault. We could use one right now.
I hope it does too but first I have to find it before I can share it ..lol
You are so brave to attempt a novel from your poem! I can barely open mine up into a piece of prose 😛 I like the way you came back around to the vault at the end. Tomorrow, when I’m more refreshed, I plan to read the first few pages of your book – from you blog today. I’ll bookmark that now and get back to you with a comment.
I actually wrote the poem about the book. The concept was conceived and I wanted people to have an idea of what to expect from the book so I summarized it in a poem, this poem. 🙂
The poem was challenging to get it just right, to divulge just the right amount of information, not to reveal too much about the book and keep it interesting. I look forward to your thoughts on the opening two pages tomorrow.
Thanks for taking the time!
Love it 🙂
Thank you so much. I’m so happy to hear that.
Sounds awesome! What a unique way to start a book. I like it!
Thank you Christina!
The first 2 pages are posted on my blog now if yo want to give them a read.
