My name is Sage Doyle (pseudonym) and I write poetry and contemporary fiction.  I am temporarily unpublished…so..to be continued on that. I post poetry and “The Journal of Wall Grimm” journal entries – reblogged from the Wall Grimm blog.  I also sometimes post writing excerpts as well as random things I feel compelled to share.

“The Journal of Wall Grimm” is a fictional journal that originally evolved here, but now is located on my other blog http://wallgrimm.wordpress.com/ which is entirely devoted to Wall Grimm.

Click here if you’d like to browse through the page: POETRY which archives and categorizes my poems, making it easier to access older material.

Feel free to comment, ask questions, or email me.

Thanks for coming by!

    Its great to hear from you .Thank you for liking my post the game of the leap year.Have a wonderful day.jalal

  3. I should probably wish you welcome into the blog world (or should I say ‘society’) since I have been here for years. Not on ‘wordpress’, but having had a blog.
    And I should probably pay you a return visit, so here I am! But you’ve been here for 9 months and that counts for something.
    It would, however, be of a certain interest to know approximately where in the world you are operating from?

    As you have probably discovered, my ambition is to present Norway and Norwegian nature to the world, thus I’m living in Norway! There’s gonna be new pictures presented every week, and therefore I wish you welcome back to my blog any time you feel the need to look at pictures.

    • Actually it’s been a bit less than 9 months since I started on July 30th, so going on 7. I’m from the outskirts of Boston, Massachusetts, a bit North West of the coast. I’ve only recently discovered photography, and I enjoy taking pictures though it’s not my natural artistic leaning and I find it to be a contrast with writing. In other words, if I see something I want to photograph that becomes the artform and I see it with that aspect of my creative mind, then it’s isolated there, where I don’t revisit in order to write about it. I think it’s a fascinating process, but I’m more of a poet so I don’t tend to choose photography over writing. I guess I’m telling you this because I want to say that I wish I would take more photos, but it’s not my inherent inclination as an artist. And your photos are amazing, I just revisited and I’d like to make it a habit to go to your site more often. I love the nature, stunning. Thanks so much for coming by! Take care :)

      • Thank you for following my blog! Contrary to you, I have been taking photos all my life (and I’m getting pretty old :-) ), but it’s still hard to give you any advise as I’m not much of a poet. I guess we all have our advantages and interests – and ‘shortcomings’ :-) , but when you’re looking for motives for your camera, have you ever thought of photographing ‘abstract feelings’? Sound intriguing?
        Finding motives that tell a story, a feeling, a craving, a hope, despair . . .
        It could be and old log cabin? A fireplace and a coffee pot, an empty stable- ?
        Something that would illustrate the contence of your poems (or the other way around)? If you succeed, you will surely have hit the jack pot.

        When fall arrives, just think of what you could be finding up New England way?

        • It never ceases to amaze me the parallels from one artform to the next. That’s pretty much how I approach poetry. I’ve been into finding the beauty in the simple elements of nature and I think that’s what my problem is now, I’m ready to expand a little. So I know exactly what you’re saying, and now I’m inspired lol Thanks so much!

          • Her I am again! Since you registered as a ‘follower’ to SeeNorway back in 2013, we have published nearly 6000 ‘full screen’ pictures – today counting a total of 6488!
            But – we can’t recollect that you have been by?
            And it doesn’t look like you’ve been posting anything since 2015? Which leads us to belive that it’s more tha uncertain that we will ever see you again?
            So – today we are deleting your registry with us. If you feel that to be an error on our part, – please re-enlist! But to remain in our files you need to show us that you’re active to avoid being deleted again! See you around?

  4. Thank you Sage, for the “follow”
    As you know I have also been following and reading your posts.
    Peace, Eric

  5. Sage, how are you?

    Good news, we are giving you the “BEST MOMENT AWARD“. Congratulations and enjoy the rest of the day!

    • You know, I’ve gone award free, without advertising efficiently yet, but I’ve never gotten this award yet. If you don’t mind that I sit on it for a little while, I might follow through with it. I’ll let you know if I don’t. A lot of things are coming up for me so it would be at least a couple of weeks. How do you feel about that? And either way, thank you so much! It means a lot :)

    Hey Sage, I’m nominating you for the Sunshine Award, I love reading your work and you’ve definitely inspired me to continue mine in times of doubt. Just wanted to show you my appreciation

    • Thank you so much, I really appreciate that, but I have gone award free, sorry. Someone else just nominated me and it sounded like a cool award, so I was tempted, but I’m going to give it a confirmed no. I’m afraid I just don’t have the time and I’m struggling to find time for my WIP, But thank you, I’m humbled :)

  7. Looks like a great blog you have here. Thanks for stopping by and liking some of my posts.

  8. Sage – thanks for stopping by my blog and liking United, I appreciate you taking the time. Keep on creating :) I look forward to reading more of your work.

  9. Morning, Sage. I wanted to give you the WordPress family award. It’s not an award that means a lot of work on your part, it’s just a way to say thanks for being a great support in my journey through blogging and through life. :)

          • Hey Sage…it’s Kira! Long time no see. I hope you are doing well :-) I was just thinking about you the other day, We are looking for poets who have done collaborations and I know that you and Hasty Words have done some amazing poems together. I would love to showcase one of the poems you all have written.

          • Hey Kira, I thought that was you I saw on the website, wasn’t sure though. That sounds great. So it can be one we’ve already written and posted? I’m sure Hasty would love that too, I’ll let her know and we’ll pick the best one, or if we need to, we’ll write another one. Is there a deadline to submit it?

    • Thank you so much Nina! Since my blog is award free, I don’t get them as much anymore. I love receiving them, but never have the time to fulfill the obligations they come with. So what I do now is I make a post with the logo, thanking the person who gave me the award, then I put that award/name on my awards page. I hope you don’t mind that’s how I do it. Thanks so much, I greatly appreciate this!

      • I definitely don’t mind at all!! Me giving you the award just shows my appreciation for being a wonderful blogger, how you accept it is up to you :). I definitely understand about finding the time to fulfil the obligations, in one day, there’s just never enough time!! Congratulations again!!! :)

  26. Just happened to run into your blog. You have got a warm space running here. Loved your write-ups. Its very subtle . I guess I will be hanging around here a lot. :) Your vision and thoughts are indeed a revelation. Great work. Happy blogging.

    • Thank you so much, I appreciate that. I just visited and followed your blog as well. Glad to encounter you and make acquaintances in the blogging community!

  27. Thanks for the follow, I am humbled by your talent for writing. Not too mention the fact that you are also quite witty. :)

    Word has it that you are brilliant Monsieur Doyle

    • Well thank you…I’m deeply flattered. I don’t know where you heard that, but thanks to the source as well. Thanks for the comment! And I’m a fan of Modigliani btw.

      • mrmodigliani said:

        Half of my followers have no idea who he is, which I find very entertaining.

        • Well I remember when I was a kid I saw something about his works and since then his art has always fascinated me, because it’s so unique. I know their styles are different but I used to always think Klimt’s “The Kiss” was Modigliani, and it took me a while to figure out it wasn’t. I think it was just the angle and the faces. But Modigliani has an amazing way of capturing not just emotion, but the internal workings of personality through shadowing. Everyone depicted seems a little lonely though, but I think that’s just an inherent aspect of the human condition. I think we’re all a little lonely.

  32. I was born in Malden, Ma. Near downtown Boston and moved from Quincy to Mexico for a more peaceful life…..VERY SMALL WORLD! :)

    • Absolutely, there are a lot of bloggers who are either from or have lived in the Boston area. Massachusetts is a big place for writers, including many classics.

  33. Hi Sage (love the pen name) and thanks for checking out my blog and following.

  34. Thanks for dropping by and following me at “42 Days Younger than Kylie”.

  35. You have a beautiful blog, keep up the great work! I have nominated you for the Sunshine Blog Award.

    You can learn all about it here


    Thanks a lot!

  36. Hello Sage, thank you for all of your support by clicking like on many of my blog articles. It is greatly appreciated. I hope all is going well for you and I wish you all the best my friend. Cheers.

  37. Hello Sage, thank you for your great work and kind support :) you are the best !

  38. Hi Sage,
    Just wanted to swing by and say a huge thank you for submitting your work to The Paperbook Collective this year. It was an honour to publish your excellent writing, and I hope you get a chance to submit in 2014.
    Have a wonderful holiday season!

    • Thanks so much Jayde! I’m actually planning on buying it, it’s on my list of online purchases to make which I’ll buy in blog. I am honored to have been a part of it, and I will be glad to submit again sometime. And Happy Holidays to you as well!

  39. Is that “sage” as in wise, or as in savoury?

    Curious choice of pseudonym. Why Doyle? Sir Arthur Conan D.?

    • Well, funny thing is, I put less thought into my penname than I put into my characters’ names. I just liked the name Sage, and I wanted an Irish sounding surname. It was the mood I was in at the time. So I just kind of searched through all my options until a I found a combination that sounded best. Being both wise and savory, and sharing the name with a literary great, are fringe benefits that were not contrived in any way. Thanks for asking!

  40. I admit to being curious, as I went with “Michael M. McConaughey.”

    I’ve got a backlog of at least a half dozen books, but I hopefully I can make some progress so I can start to have a read here.


    • Thanks! I get curious too. And that’s a good name, sounds authentic. I’m falling behind on a lot of my reading too. I’m going to visit your blog right now. See you around!

  41. Just being caught up. Lovely blog. Can’t wait to read the journey of wall grimm! xx

  42. thisoldtoad2014 said:

    congratulations or in order….

    i could not find a way to get enough free space with Wall Grimm upload at last site, since closed site, however believe could have found another way to do free. However they express that one should be original owner of content. Once done will hand over to you if you wish all credit is to be in your name….




  43. Thank you Sage for the follow! Please be aware that my blog is a bilingual one.
    So you may get links to some poems in English as well as to some in Italian…
    I’m trying to keep the posting balanced between the two languages. Keep up the good work and Happy New Year!

  44. thanks for follow sage doyle much appreciated

  45. I am just calling by to wish you a
    very nice rest of weekend Sage :)


    • Thanks Andro! Great to see you. I do come by your blog you know, but you don’t have the like button anymore, so I can’t prove it ;) I don’t comment much on blogs, only on occasion, sorry. I hope you have a great weekend as well! I just got back from vacation, hence the delayed response.
      Take care my friend

      • No need to prove that you have been Sage, I know that you call in and your word is good enough for me. I hope that your vacation was a sweet and happy one, here the weather is nice for a change, okay the odd thunderstorm and rain showers but on the whole it’s been rather nice so no complaints. I will be calling in again when I get back on here, posting I mean :) lol

        Have a fun Thursday Sage :)


        • Thanks Andro! Don’t feel pressured about reading my stuff. I know you’re busy, and as I said before, it’s just great knowing you’re out there. Going camping tomorrow for the weekend, so offline again, nice break. Take care, and have a great weekend as well!
