by B.E. StockFurther Collected Poems contains selected lyrics from 2001 to 2017, divided roughly by theme or subject. You and I is about relationships, We is about society and institutions, He is about religion and spirituality, Visions is about ideas, and Beautys Mead is about art. The poems are in and out of form, in many modes and voices, simple and complex, hopeful and tragic. The common thread is a conviction that there is an order and a goodness behind and beyond all absurdity, if we will seek it and b... more
by Rufus JohnsonI started to write because of reoccurring memories. I work all day I could not shut my mind down. All my memories from childhood keep coming back while I wanted to rest. My inner voice is talking to me which made me decide to write words down. I decided to put them in writing for the others to relate to. That serves as an inspiration for me to write poems and come up with the title "Mental and Spiritual Healing." I call it Mental and Spiritual Healing because mental serves as my reoccurring m... more
by Thomas G ReischelThis is not an ordinary poetry book. This book is an “Inspiration of Life” from photographs. The concept is Animated Stills engaging the reader using pareidolia. Like faces in a cloud, or Jesus’ face in a piece of toast. I believe that photography and poetry go together well. One form paints a visual picture, while the other creates a poetic image. Together, the synergy becomes very powerful. This book contains both, with a twist –a hidden reveal. As a photographer, I take pictures. As a Poet... more

You cannot help but wonder what and why you are. The History of Eternity is a book that again and again answers these questions, as it celebrates the tragic joy of wonder at the enigma of your existence. There will always be a clamoring after elusive fact. There will always be a hankering for some durable theory that will explain the fact. There will always be an inability to match the one wholly with the other. Because something is always left out, there will always persist a stubbornly invi... more

by Miranda KeuterA partly lyric and narrative poetry book filled with many important subjects through ages like Aristoteles. Summaries on rhyme do contain beautiful metaphors within a style combination of well-known writers and a trying of my own. Hopefully this new concept will receive great replies. Next to appreciations of readers this may be a real good study use by making homework and pleasurable to read.
by Irina Moga“Then there is the small matter of a poem, to be settled in the hours ahead,” writes Irina Moga in “Sea Glass Circe”.But how is such a settlement to be reached to a reader’s satisfaction - and how does one go about it? Through the reinterpretation of feelings and sensorial cues, the author aims to create an opening towards that perplexing and mutual poetic concord. In “Sea Glass Circe” Irina Moga recasts themes from classical mythology in an everyday setting, in a low key interrogation on the ... more
