Not Quite Leaping Puddles By Barbara Blanks
eBook (ePub): $2.99
(1 Ratings)
This collection of award winning poems captures the extremes, in-betweens, and sunbeams people experience—past and present, humorous and serious. Obviously life is neither all good nor all... More > bad—all we can do is splash from puddle to puddle. Sometimes landing in puddles is fun. Sometimes they hide sinkholes. It’s always our choice how we deal with it. Still, while we’re in mid-leap—oh, the possibilities! From Eve winning the battle of the sexes, to Elvis resting his pelvis; from a civil war post office to social media, from survival to recovery, Barbara Blanks believes “grief is no place to linger or dwell.” She also refuses to have a “rendezvous with death” because she doesn’t want to leave “this most amazing place.” She “tastes poetry, crunching it like popcorn.” and pretends she knows the words to “the sound of Moses.”< Less

More > Eclipse, but she chooses to start with light and a kiss from the gods, move through the dark eclipse that sears like dragon’s breath, then feel a joyous pulse at the pinnacle of light—and have some fun along the way. Her feet might be “wet from not quite leaping over puddles” but Barb is still willing to “pull the husk away from heaven, and bite into the flesh of the sun.”< Less

More > fun. Suitable for ages twelve and up, these light-hearted and delightful poems may make you see the light--that is, if you think you don’t like or understand poetry, this book will either change your attitude or … Poof! Barb will change you to a pigeon. (see page 29 in the preview.) Contact Barb at www.barbara-blanks.com< Less
