by Michael Dickel
This chapbook, Michael Dickel's third book of poetry, collects poems written during and in response to the Israel-Gaza war in the summer of 2014. The poems evoke a resistance to the violence, and are acute observations of the effects on family and daily life – from the provocations before, through the devastating loss of human life during attacks on Gaza, and past the line of failed cease fires.

I wrote this book while listening to the fajr, while passing through the lanes of brothels, when people get traumatized after a terror attack, while sitting alone before a tall monastic hill and listening to the silence only- I do solemnize silence that breeds thoughts and dreams that brought out my GOLDEN SHADOWS.

by Nicole MangumThere is a path that leads to the heart of God. It is called "True Worship". I was caught in the hour of worship by the one who sought the spirit and truth worshipper. I was taken away caught up in a love affair with the creator. There were no spectators to perform for. There was no choir, no instruments playing, Just a sound from heaven that I began to bring forth out of my spirit. God turned his face to me. He has remained here ever since. Out of this place I am able to bring forth so much bea... more
