Through the Windowpane By Heather Mihok
eBook (PDF): $4.99
(4 Ratings)
***Save a Tree - Download Available!*** "Inanna spill your rain like blood/the rival bird is coming..." The intro hints at issues regarding religion, nature, violence, and on a deeper... More > level, love. “Through the Windowpane” is a melting pot of subject matter that could be equally be described as both disturbing and satisfying; it goes from the uplifting tone of “I Can” and “Pagan Blessing" to the surprise of feeling anger return, expressed in the startling ending of “The Bookstore”. This is what Mihok has to say about “Through the Windowpane”: “In 'Secrets,Nevermore' [Lulu Press, 2006], you’re being told everything by this girl. This next collection isn’t like that. It’s the same girl, but she’s older now and she’s just not that crazy about exposing herself the way she had in her youth. So if you want to know, you’ll have to creep through her yard and take a peek in her window.”< Less
Gitanjali: Song Offerings By Rabindranath Tagore
eBook (ePub): $1.99
Thou hast made me endless, such is thy pleasure. This frail vessel thou emptiest again and again, and fillest it ever with fresh life. This little flute of a reed thou hast carried over hills... More > and dales, and hast breathed through it melodies eternally new. At the immortal touch of thy hands my little heart loses its limits in joy and gives birth to utterance ineffable. Thy infinite gifts come to me only on these very small hands of mine. Ages pass, and still thou pourest, and still there is room to fill. When thou commandest me to sing it seems that my heart would break with pride; and I look to thy face, and tears come to my eyes. All that is harsh and dissonant in my life melts into one sweet harmony--and my adoration spreads wings like a glad bird on its flight across the sea. I know thou takest pleasure in my singing. I know that only as a singer I come before thy presence.< Less

From the daily cycling trips in Titan Park, Bucharest, appeared this small volume of poems, illustrated with the most beautiful pictures I made during these walks. At midnight starts my working day.... More > The computer, a coffee, a discreet jazz music, together with other ingredients. At 5:30, I'm getting ready. At 6:00, I take the bicycle and pedal easily to the nearby park, Titan Park. It's still early in the morning, but in the park, there are already running or walking people I have not known before, but now familiar to me. There she is the beautiful girl who runs like a gazelle; and the 50-year-old man who descends the stairs with his back, climbs them, and then goes down; the woman who gives a few laps in a hurried pace, the young man with walking but problems with a will out of the ordinary, who gives up for a moment at the walking stick; those from the outdoor exercise machines, and those who give food to birds; and others, and others ...< Less

Diary of the Soft World By Carol L. Hatfield
eBook (ePub): $8.99
When you see through someone else’s eyes, doors and windows fly open. The view can be refreshing and enlightening, and you may come to know yourself on a different level. When poetry is very... More > personal, it can offer such a vista. Diary of the Soft World, by poet Carol L. Hatfield, offers a series of deeply personal verses spanning many years and several genres. Some of the poems are written with children in mind while remaining accessible to all ages. Others are an expression of what emerges from heritage and DNA. Ancestry speaks loudly, as do ancestors, and when their voices reach a certain decibel level, the poet has no choice but to express them. Many of these poems are words from Earth, and Hatfield feels honored to have been able to interpret them. Taken as a whole, this collection of poetry invites you to seek something new within yourself.
