I have a story to tell, it seems to write itself. It's about a boy, who's grown into a man. He isn't famous, and he hasn't done any great things. Words are what he writes, simple and short... More > poems. But each poem has a soul, a little fragment of life. Each one has a voice that all can hear. This simple man hears them, in his mind and in his heart. They cause him pain, knowing that these simple words crave is to be read. These words want to help, the words want to heal. They want to do more than reside within this simple man. So while you read these simple words, hear these simple words written by this simple man, spare a thought for your little voice. The one that rarely speaks, the one that may cry in silence. The one you try to hide away, beneath a mask, beneath a smile. Listen to it, understand what it wants and how you can help it heal. The words contained are my own voice, my life has shaped them.< Less
21st Century Haiku By Paul Judges
Paperback: $10.25

According to my English dictionary haiku means: amusement in verse; Oxford Dictionaries differ slightly with: light verse, and add that it’s a Japanese poem of seventeen syllables, in three... More > lines of five-seven-five, traditionally evoking images of the natural world; and also that it can be a poem in English written in the form of a haiku. The great haiku master Basho died in 1694 at the age of fifty; it was common in those days to observe a few other rules of composition, which many of us have deliberately disregarded in the micro-poetic world of today. Twitter, with its limitation of 140 characters, has surprisingly provided a platform for all manner of short form poetry celebrating many of the mundane, and eternal themes such as love, life, death, and the natural world. Perhaps, even Basho would accept that in the 21st century we should be allowed to express ourselves more freely and decide the contents of the haiku rule book – if we have one. Simplicity & beauty should be the main aim.< Less

The Journey At The Crossroads By James L Lagoski

Most the poetry written into the pages of this book were created between 1999 and 2002. Although the first 2 books were already written, something kept telling me it was more important to just keep... More > writing rather than publishing. My writing style was being compared to some of the most recognized poets and prophets in history. So this began a new interpretation of The Journey for me. I felt that the poems had to be crafted with feeling and emotion so the words were not just read but completely absorbed. This book contains some of the first poems I affectionately call my mental masterpieces. Short stories with a natural flow and rhyme scheme, each structured towards delivering some sort of message to the reader. A calculated perfection of mirrored thought meant to have the readers reflect upon themselves. Anyone who reads this book will find something that they relate to. I’m sure that some of these will really hit home. After all- They were written for you. You’re the reason why I do what I do.< Less
