  • A Spiritual Bridge

    by Mzia Kvirikashvili Lawrence
    With this book, I wanted to give at least a glimmer of joy to my eternally tormented country, which for decades has been so preciously owed by the freedom gained through its blood. I wanted to introduce to the English-speaking world how a Georgian person thinks, primarily a Georgian poet, who are so numerous in Georgia. And poetry, after all, it is a bridge between people?s hearts. Then, walk on this bridge and connect our desires, kind people!

  • Goodbye (Hello)

    by Ilyssa Goldsmith
    Goodbye (Hello) is a love letter to the stranger, the lover, and the beloved. It is a recovered poem written for the person we may meet once, perchance never to meet again. In her first poetry collection, Goldsmith re-imagines the fine line, which exists between all hellos and goodbyes. Here, the poet raises a new provocation—one which appears to be nostalgic and old. It is just this: every goodbye is secretly an unmet hello in disguise.
  • Bells in the Night

    by Richard Betz
    “Betz has waited all this time for his first book of poems and for us readers it’s worth the wait, as these poems reflect the humble inner and outer lives of the author in poetic detail and profound musings, each poem being the image of what he sees in those binoculars he peers through in the author photo at the end of the book . . . From the NC mountains to the Outer Banks, Betz brings many and varied perspectives and subjects of interest, showing an inquisitive mind and a keen eye, from Shakes... more

  • Sparks and Disperses

    by Cathleen Cohen
    The poems in Cathleen Cohen’s Sparks and Disperses reckon with contemporary life through the perspective of visual artists. Drawing on an ancient Kabbalistic myth of the “shattering of vessels,” Cohen explores issues of fracture, healing, and creation; the challenges of poverty, isolation, and the pandemic; and how we can find meaning and joy through artmaking. By building a poetic mural made of cracked ceramics, household items, and glass shards, Cohen promotes healing through continuity and ho... more

    by Hibah Shabkhez

  • Here Along Cazenovia Creek

    by Ruth Thompson
    In 2005 I moved from California, where I had lived all my life, to the beautiful hill country of western New York, with its creeks and woods and pastures, its small farms and villages, and its four intense seasons. I had never lived in a place with real seasons before, and I was stunned. My first book of poems came out of this experience. It is a sequence of praise songs celebrating the turning seasons in our farmhouse that backed onto Cazenovia Creek. It was the basis for “Dancing the Se... more
