Poetry

  • Rain Dances in the Desert

    by Jas James
    The journey of living told through raw poetry and nostalgic prose. It is the story of nearly ten thousand days of life, all of the pain, and all of the glory. An exploration of what it is to balance continuing and conflicting emotions with healthy and heart wrenching recovery. A powerful exercise in using a newly-found voice to express oneself, without losing sight of all the history that has created the person living today. This memoir-type collection of poetry explores themes of childhood, sex... more
  • Snake Riddles Poetry and Short Stories

    by Tim Segrest
    This is the continuation of my series of poems and short stories. I have just had my diagnoses raised to Acute PTSD and for the first time in my life, I felt absolutely helpless and weak as a man. Therefore, I felt this cover was appropriate. I went from invincible to a mere shell of a man I once was in a matter of hours. I remember the day even the hours, like it was yesterday. I remember the weather, what I was wearing, and what I was doing when I received the phone call from the VA. It felt l... more
  • Evergreen

    by Kirsten Robinson
    Evergreen is a tribute to the enduring resilience of human nature as we cycle through times of light and darkness, much like nature itself. In her debut book, Kirsten Robinson (@NakedWriting) lays her heart bare in a raw, relatable and inspirational way to describe the journey of growth born out of finding beauty in breakage and love after loss. This artfully honest collection embodies and expands upon the poetry and prose Robinson began writing under the popular social media pseudonym Naked ... more
  • Whirl Away Girl

    by Tricia Johnson

    The Diagnosis: You have an Autoimmune Disease.

    The Question: How are You?

    What is this new life you have been handed? Where does it lead? How do you even feel? Sometimes the pathway ahead is murky, seemingly impossible to pass through. Life throws you a twist you didn't see, know or desire.

    In the midst of adversity, how do you cope? How do you process? How do you move forward?

    Join this poetic journey of intimate details through the ache of life's unraveling, ... more

  • Visions and Verse

    by Karen Wallace
    As you view this collection, give yourself the gift of being present in the moment with each piece. Allow yourself to hear the rhythm of the words and feel the energetic flow of the color and content in the paintings. Many who have viewed the paintings and read the poems have wept, laughed out loud, smiled with knowing and felt a connection “like being there before”. This work is an expression of the string theory of Quantum Creativity, the Universal One, the thread of energy that runs through u... more
  • Head Over Heart

    by Anran Liken
    This is a compilation of poetry. These mean a lot to me. For each one comes from my heart. I have cried, laughed, felt every emotion that you will feel in this book. Heartbreak, love, lose, passion, break-ups, we all have felt those at some points of our lives. Many may read and say ‘that is me that is how I felt’ or ‘is she talking about me at this moment?’ the answer is yes to both these questions. You are not alone. Emotions rule our life whether it is love, anger, passion, crying, laughing a... more
  • Haiku for the Road

    by Stephen Holton
    Stephen Holton is an Episcopal priest who lives and works in the Hudson Valley region of New York. One day during morning prayer, he found himself arranging words “like puzzle pieces” in the traditional syllabic structure of Japanese haiku. Creating these simple three-line poems turned into a daily ritual—Holton’s way of capturing and exploring momentary emotions, observations of nature and the world, and insights into faith and life. Friends and followers relish Holton’s haiku as they appea... more
