Profoundlessly Simple (HB): A Poetic Compilation of Verse
by K.E. Long
Profoundlessly Simple: A Poetic Compilation of Verse, is K. E. Longs first collection of poetry. His poetry and prose are far from traditional. They are the heartfelt adaptation of words and perspectives accumulated and experienced over the years; some words of happiness, some words of sadness, some words of love, and some words of love lost. He even included some words of silliness, corniness, and levity.
About the Author:
K. E. Long is a native of Metropolitan Atlanta, Georgia. For him, poetry came more in the form of an itch that needed scratching rather than an endeavor. From early in his adolescent life and throughout his adult life various moments or circumstances would spark the need for something to write on and with.
Mr. Long was raised in a family that has a natural appetite for nature. He began his career in the garden center industry in the early nineteen-eighties and went on to receive a degree in ornamental horticulture from Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College in Tifton, Georgia and later became a certified Georgia nurseryman through the Georgia Green Industry Association. He is also an International Society of Arboriculture certified arborist.
Mr. Long has stated very clearly that his verse is no match for the poetic giants of history, but to him, if one simple line of his verse can touch just one person in a poetic and positive way, all the itches combined will have been eternally scratched.
