This anthology of poems by Sam Walter Foss encapsulates his love of nature and of the slow pace of rural living.

More > day for various newspapers; many were designed to appeal to the ordinary man, and recalled simple pleasures of life and the beauty of the natural world, with vignettes of rural events and daily happenings. Sometimes patriotic, Foss also celebrated the spirit and character of the United States, with allusions to the nation’s religious heritage, growing wealth and political prowess. In the main, Sam Walter Foss’s work read as evocative recollections of a world gone by, of a time when most Americans were well-acquainted with the land and its bounty, and thanked the heavens for favorable harvests.

When You Bit... By Adam Fieled

(2 Ratings)
Not all vampirism transpires on a grassy hill deep in the Carpathians. We may all, in fact, be vampires: blood-crazed, hungry, equipped with sharp teeth for a life-and-death struggle. The struggle is... More > for love, in all of its myriad manifestations: physical, emotional, spiritual. In When You Bit…, Adam Fieled has crafted what may be the first post-avant sonnet cycle. It concerns these themes; how we feed on each other, consume each others’ vital resources, prey upon weaknesses to get those first teeth-marks in. In these sonnets, we see a sensibility equal parts Barrett Watten and Sir Philip Sidney; the post-avant impulse towards openness meeting a Renaissance-like ideal of courtly love, phenomenological inquiry, and good old-fashioned heartache. The goal, perpetually renewed in the text, is always the same: to make the reader complicit in attacks on frigidity and an embrace of the artfully carnal.< Less

Every wave of the ocean, has a rise, a crest and a fall. But this is not the end of its journey. So long as there is another wave after the first and another after that. Every wave takes us farther... More > into the ocean. Metaphorically, the ocean is our destination, our dream, our the world. It is our journey through the maze of love, politics, dedications , encounters and experiences. We have to start somewhere, but that is only our beginning.

Such as in life, every opportunity to love, brings more understanding, and shared experiences, these shape who we are and often, what we become. In our crafts, we start with making little things which become building blocks of our sculpting imaginations and dreams. Aiyeko-ooto, in 5 waves and 50 poems launched his first wave of enduring Odo-alamo series. It is only the beginning. Upon this wave would grow broader strokes, sculpturing strikes and sprays of wise songs and poetic murals in future!< Less

Hint: You can preview this book by clicking on "Preview" which is located under the cover of this book. About the author: Quintus Horatius Flaccus (December 8, 65 BC – November 27,... More > 8 BC), known in the English-speaking world as Horace (/ˈhɒrəs/ or /ˈhɔːrəs/), was the leading Roman lyric poet during the time of Augustus (also known as Octavian). The rhetorician Quintillian regarded his Odes as just about the only Latin lyrics worth reading: "He can be lofty sometimes, yet he is also full of charm and grace, versatile in his figures, and felicitously daring in his choice of words. "[nb 1]Horace also crafted elegant hexameter verses (Sermones and Epistles) and caustic iambic poetry (Epodes). The hexameters are amusing yet serious works, friendly in tone, leading the ancient satirist Persius to comment: "as his friend laughs, Horace slyly puts his finger on his every fault; once let in, he plays about the heartstrings".

STILL HOLDING MY THRONE By Bernard "Tiger" Smith, Jr.
Paperback: $20.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
A book of rhymes, some call rap, for mature audiences. Raw and inclusive of the language of the streets in most of the book's poems. A follow-up to the author's published work "Mr. Tiger AK, The... More > Street Rhyming Poet." The author continues with a "keeping it real" attitude that depicts his craft of being able to let his words "flow" telling his version of a part of the story of life in rhymes or non-fiction books, such as, "Hard Headed, That's How I Got Here - Volume One." This book's title poem or rap, "Still Holding My Throne" is one of any of the author's that could very easily be set to music as he discloses that he does most of his literature with rhythm playing in the background. Lots of emotions displayed and can be felt while reading the verses within each poem, a gift that not many can put into oral or written words, whether using street, slang or perfect English. Rhymes for the open-minded and curious alike. A very expressive and impressive read.< Less

In the last Mile Marker, we Look for Shade – because it time to claim peace and rest, turn the oyster stones we saved along the way into pearls about our necks.
