More > ash and gas towering into the sky. A climactic explosion blew the top off the mountain. Day turned into midnight as thick ash blocked the sun and pumice and rock rained down.

Revelation 4:1 introduces a section of Scripture that details “things which must be hereafter.” What follows are prophecies of the “end times.” We have not yet reached the... More > tribulation, the revelation of the Antichrist, or other “end-time” events. What we do see is a “preparation” for those events. Jesus said that the last days would be preceded by several things: many false Christs would come, deceiving many; we would “hear of wars and rumors of wars”; and there would be an increase in “famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in diverse places. All these are the beginning of sorrows” (Matthew 24:5-8). Today’s news is full of false religions, warfare, and natural disasters. We know that events of the tribulation period will include all that Jesus predicted (Revelation 6:1-8); current events seem to be a build-up for greater trouble ahead.< Less

"A haiku is but one breath. It is the kodak moment of modern poetry and it proves all Picasso needed to write a picture was 17 syllables." In 2004, Mark Wollacott moved to Japan and... More > discovered this perfect poetic form. One day, seven years later, he was digging around the old boxes under his bed, the ones he'd brought back from Japan with him, when he re-discovered a dusty notebook crammed full of haiku. A few hours later he'd found hundreds more. 108 Breaths represents the best haiku of his time in Japan. They chronicle the ups and the downs, the oddities and the small moments that make life worthwhile. His first month alone saw six typhoons and three earthquakes. Every night when he went to bed, he received a dozen mosquito bites and he formed a long alliance against the tatami ants with a gecko named Hiro.< Less

Ojore Dhoruba Khafra Ajamu is a prisoner on Death Row in California, USA. This collection of poems describes his background and early life in the projects of Newark and L.A. and his personal journey... More > during 21 years of incarceration. These are poems about growing up on the streets: loyal and not so loyal relationships, anger with the failings of the police and legal systems and the ongoing legacy of slavery. But Ajamu also wants to share the joy of being alive. He celebrates his family: the warmth and love of his mother, aunt Sista, grandfather and his pride in his daughter. He looks beyond his own life to his deep connection with his ancestors and reaches out to connect with others be it the Tuareg people of North Africa or earthquake survivors in Haiti. Challenging and moving, these poems ask us not only to review the conviction of an individual and the preconceptions we have about equality in our society, but also to find a profound reverence for life itself.< Less
When it Snowed in Pasadena By R. A. Christmas
Paperback: $11.34

Pasadena, California—great weather, old money. Every January 1st, city of the Rose Parade and the Rose Bowl football game. An obnoxious, ambitious blue-collar from Boston arrives in... More > Pasadena in the 1920’s with his young family and starts a trucking business; but by the 70’s it’s mostly gone. The point-of-view in these poems is that of his grandson, reflecting on his hometown, his tragicomic family, and his mixed-up life. The usual happens--the death of a pet, Boy Scouting, first car, first love, eccentric relatives, high-school victories and defeats. Pasadena endures, with its remarkable climate, punctuated by earthquakes, Santa Ana winds, smog, and, on wonderfully rare occasions, snow. Maybe we don’t have a choice as to who we’re born to, or where we grow up. But maybe we do.< Less
