My poems are an immediate rush of expression, an inner need to connect and to begin myself, and end the constant longing. It is a funnel through which all things eventually flow outwards, the... More > essence that is me thrown to the masses. I write because I am this thing that must create, or so shall I be destroyed. Song of the Wood is my latest fall from the Heaven of Words, to play my instrument, my literary flute. I blow into this world my latest gesture, a kiss of meter and rhyme and metaphor, expecting nothing in return. Perhaps an echo, a sigh. What would be nice is someone to turn around and say, I needed every bit of that. My life would thus be complete. I have been writing since the age of eight, over 40 years. It’s been a life-long journey of pleasure and pain into that great Unknown. But it’s enough. I’m one with it. I can only hope I’ve helped you find oneness too in this world of bits and pieces.< Less

I have always been a creative person. As a child I loved to sing, paint pictures and write stories. I also had prophetic dreams which I came to understand better as an adult. I didn't fit into the... More > conventional lifestyle very well so I followed my prophetic dreams which lead me to my interest in the metaphysical world where I met like minded people. I became an astrologer with an interest in jungian psychology and alternative therapies, I added aromatherapy as another string to my bow and developed my interest in psychic phenomenon offering spiritually guided readings. I became aware of auras around people which lead me on to my interest in energy healing and Reiki which I now teach. My poetry is a marriage between my vivid creativity and my deep metaphysical world and creates a wonderful insightful balance for myself and hopefully you the reader. I am at present learning to play the guitar so I can write my own music for my own words creating my own songs. I hope you enjoy my book. NAMASTE.< Less

Suitable for reading and oratorical sharing, for conversion to music or for use in skits and plays, this Poetry is for you. Describing your situations as if she had been there, the author, CONNIE... More > MARIE BAKER, is able to put your most private feelings to words, then put a spiritual head on it so its got someplace soft to land.

HEARTSTRINGS II: Heart to Heart is poetry at its best, from “My Sister, The Tree” and “Blood in the Snow” to the very poignant “What Are You Doing in There?”, it is something you must read and read again. You will find yourself happily chuckling, or crying unashamedly, or holding your heart as you say "yes" to God at the end of a reading. So ENJOY! Take two and call God in the morning. Tell Him, "Thank you, LORD, for HEARTSTRINGS; it is GOOD medicine!"< Less

As reviewed on ArtistsRunThisPlanet.com ... Like the days of Homer, lyric tales have found their way to us, using words set to a rhythm, hitting us like waves playing against the shoreline. Poetry,... More > when it is done best, immortalizes the triumph of man over the elements, shouts the glory of the human spirit, and whispers the tragedies that blow across the universe like passing storms. Taylor finds himself standing on a cliff at the edge of eternity, looking out across the vastness of space, building a bridge that carries us past ourselves, toward unimagined futures, leaving us back where we started, hopeful, wishful and oh so powerful. He delivers a book that is spiritual, fixing the reader into strange yet familiar situations where they must look to the future, take in the past, notice every detail from an exterior view. Taylor is a master, effortlessly maneuvering our thoughts and emotions. Get ready to fly to heights well worth the trip. Enjoy the ride!< Less

Steven Harris was learning first words and had been walking for three weeks when his babysitter violently shook him. The doctors did not think he would live. He did. His book of poems tells the... More > story of a beautiful, powerful mind within a body that so far cannot respond. Steven, like countless others who live alone amidst families or institutions, had no outlet for an extraordinary intelligence that is every child’s birthright and that can develop profoundly in children who seem helpless due to brain damage. But Steve and his father Jim learned to communicate with a simple card that contained the alphabet. Eventually he was picking out individual letters and spelling words, wishes, his feelings. This collection of 74 poems relives the year that followed, what both Jim and Steve call “our year of awakening.” The poems are gifts of a mind at play, at discovery, they express the transformation poetry has brought to the lives of Steve and his family. This boy has realized his power for giving, for healing.< Less

Electronic Transgressions and Biological Miscalculations: A Poetry Book By Wes Scott By Wes Scott
eBook (ePub): $2.99
(1 Ratings)
"Electronic Transgressions and Biological Miscalculations - A Poetry Book By Wes Scott" is 72 pages long and represents my cumulative poetry writing endeavors of 2011 and early 2012. This... More > book is a compilation of 35 of my best works from this time period, and I am very proud to offer it to you in this completed form. My poetry style is what I like to call "structured free verse" meaning that the poems do not follow any specific meter but the line breaks, pauses and punctuation are all purposeful and lend to the overall meaning of the piece. There are also several prose poem pieces intermixed throughout the poetry with which the formatting of the piece plays a huge role in the meaning. The poetry within is arranged in an order that I believe lends to the meaning behind the poems individually and as a whole, and I see it as a personal story of sorts if read from beginning to end. I hope you enjoy my very first e-book of poetry, and I will surely have more out soon.< Less

I was apprenticed to the frenzied atmosphere, the verandas that open into dark wind.... Bowen is apprenticed to the “frenzied atmosphere" and in it she finds the crucial minutiae, in it... More > she finds skirts of night and a woman’s heart as a wind-up bird. Bowen’s poetry is where we go to read that heart—as old- time paper valentine and as fist of flesh: valved and valued...letters written with the bones of birds. So it is, so it was that Here, we came for the ghost of the word/ inside the other word: and here, in the bird museum we are haunted by all that is visual as it is visceral and Bowen, playful, brilliant, curator, reminds us that this place is a synaesthete’s playground--where the eye partakes in the delicious but no less-so than the ear, for here: If you listen, you can hear the holes in the alphabet, sounds lit by the lamps of our bones. Like birds we might even rise, our lamp-lit bones: luminous and... fly in a perfect line. Ariana-Sophia Kartsonis< Less
