Hooray for Pain!

by Bacil Donovan Warren

Life is a painful, yet rewarding collection of stops along a pathway. Without the pain of life, our experience would be empty and meaningless. The poetry of Bacil Donovan Warren reflects the recognition of how painful life can be, and how fruitless it may sometimes seem, but also offers hope, and the visceral connection of shared experience. Life may be painfulâ??it often isâ??but it is through the temporary suffering that we sometimes gain clarity and a deeper connection to our life purpose. Join us as we explore the very real suffering-and eventual triumph over itâ??of everyday life, through the eyes of the author.

Midday Musings (Selected Poems Book 4)

by Kannan G

From among hundreds of my poems that were posted in certain websites like PoemHunter and Poetfreak over the last few years, and which luckily earned the kind appreciation and support of some of my fellow poets, my teenager niece, Anjana S, has compiled and edited the following collections.

My poems deal mainly with life in its varied hues and dimensions. They are more often empathetic and socially inclined. They are reflections of my thoughts and feelings which are mostly of a compassionate, positive and philosophic nature. The voice, style and structure of my poems are generally determined by the theme of the poems, the time of writing and the emotions involved. I pen structured poems as well as free verse. By and large, my poems are lucid, straight-forward and easy to understand. They speak of many things ranging from the cries of personal emotions to empathetic heart-beats of others, from some miseries and injustices I saw around to some messages I had luckily gathered, from some philosophical musings on life to some mundane situations that I had come across, from the agonies and disasters that plague life to the unflinching optimism that I ever cherish.

The selected poems are being presented as 3 separate volumes based on 3 significant phases of my poetic life spanning over a quarter of a century – (1985-1994), (1995-2004) & (2005-2012). The 3 volumes have been titled as: Morning Melodies, Midday Musings & Evening Whispers. Of these, Morning Melodies and Evening Whispers consist of 3 books each. This is Book 1 of the volume titled Midday Musings.
