Barbara Crooker: Selected Poems

by Barbara Crooker

This collection brings together 102 poems from Barbara Crooker’s previous ten chapbooks of poetry, two of which won national prizes, with a handful of uncollected poems at the end. Of Crooker’s work, William Matthews has written, “Barbara Crooker’s poems have been written with a deft touch and with that affection for their textures and pacings that we’re accustomed to call, a little dryly, â??technical skill.’ It’s a form of love, actually, and since she’s expended it on her poems, we can, too.” Janet McCann, writing in the Foreword, says, “The poems in this collection come mostly from chapbooks, collections which cluster around a theme, such as loss of a parent or friend, raising a child with autism, travel, art. Crooker’s collections are remarkable for their unity; their poems, epigraphs, even covers have a thematic thrust that collects and directs the work, making each a coherent work of art…. Reading the work from beginning to end provides an experience of Crooker’s world, that place of work and sadness balanced by art and love. It also provides vignettes of growing up in the fifties and sixties and shows what it was like to come of age as a woman in those yearsâ??the expectations, the hopes, the barriers that had to be overcome. Even in poems of loss, the energy persists, giving us the sense that Crooker is truly in the current of life, feeling its verveâ??what Wallace Stevens called â??the intensity of love’ that he identified with â??the verve of earth.'”



Visible Wreckage

by Josette Bozeman

Releasing her debut collection of poetry, Josette’s Visible Wreckage presents readers with new and beloved poetry that captures her talent for sharing her experiences of love, courage, grief, and wisdom. Josette’s poetry is honest, full of spirit, and even in her darkest hours, she shares her journey of discovering herself and the world around her. Pulling our heartstrings and lifting us when we are weak, it is a beautiful and powerful collection that resonates with us all.



Departures (Memoir of a Psychotherapist, Chaplain and Yogi Book 2)

by Stephen Leslie

In this edition Stephen W. Leslie writes about his experiences both as a bereavment counselor and as a Hospice Chaplain. Since this work was written later in life the poems reflect both the maturity and the heightened poetic skill. Most of the poems are written in a Haibun style, a brief narrative followed by one or more Haiku poems.

While, for most people, the subject of death and dying is taboo, this book explores the experience of sitting with terminally ill patients, which is always moving and sometimes, surprisingly humorous.

The back drop for most of these poems is the rural area of upstate New York. Enjoy

Sing A New Psalm 2016: A Voice In The Media Wilderness

by Thomas Poteet

Sing A New Psalm is a book of daily inspiration that provides insight into the spiritual journey of one man one day at a time. It includes poems, written in the early morning hours, over more than 25 years. It provides one poem each day of each month to help the reader cope; much like the Psalms of old. Originally put together in a loose leaf binder in the late 1990’s, and given to some friends and family, it has been updated to include new material as the spiritual maturity process has continued; and Poteet’s relationship with our Heavenly Father has deepened and his life filled with Love.

Sing A New Psalm 2016 is Poteet’s latest edition. He now includes a message each Sunday, which supports and elaborates on the poem of the day. His messages illuminate his journey. He gives some meaning to the beauty of the love between Father and child; the beauty that has been shown to him over and over again.

The reader is invited to move along, day by day, and witness the desperation, hope, awe and wonder of a poet, in love with his Heavenly Father and his earthly family, searching for answers.

Amber Notes

by Judith Rypma

Once again Rypma weaves words into poetic patterns that explore everything from the forbidden fruits to the healing gems of our lives. In this latest book, Amber Notes, she also “transports us across a lifetime and around the globe,” as Atlanta Review editor Dan Veach puts it. Richard Katrovas, author of 14 books, concurs, adding that “an insect in amber is the perfect emblem for this dance.”



Children’s Poetry: Roots (Story/Picture Book for Beginner Readers Ages 5-9)

by Eric Cagle

Rhyming Bedtime Story/Picture Book for Beginner Readers Ages 5-9.

A man from out of town shows up, when a curious boy has to ask him a question. “Where are you from?” The man then begins to tell the boy where he is from. He stresses the fact that where you are from matters, and never to let your roots go.

It is a short poem with rhyming words to help push the story along. It has black and white realistic illustrations that draw the scenes of the poem out quite nicely.



Truly Awful Poems

by D.Q.Y. Dayjob

These days, anyone can publish a book. But most of us shouldn’t. Especially a book of poems, the lowest-common-denominator of self-indulgent twaddle. That hasn’t stopped anyone else, though, so why should it stop Donald Quincy Yosemite-Dayjob? Worse than the poems your emo little sister writes, worse than the ones you pretended to like when you were trying to get into that lit major’s pants, worse, even, than Eddie Money lyrics (“I feel a hunger. It’s a hunger.”), these are Truly Awful Poems.

by Rumbidzayi Pasirayi

Visualize the life and times

Of historic moments through mine words.

A powerful collection by an up-coming poet Rumbidzayi P. Pasirayi who reflects on the harsh reality of life and cruelty and how it impacts society.

The Sky Is Red: And Full Of Musical Notes

Poetry unveils her Universe. As for herself, that girl, she unknowns whatever comes next. When you find yourself, then maybe she will find herself, too. So, she writes you a letter. And this book is an anonymous missive that the messenger leaves under your door. But do not tell anyone about that. She tells you secrets and poems of winter.

She will navigate and search for amber. However, everything will be but poems after all, do not doubt it. When everything is gone, she will remember the saga as whether smooth or violent. The world is made of words and it is through them that she builds it. I think that if she wakes up at dawn, she will eat a pie of letters until she falls asleep again. By the way, let’s say beforehand that she recently came to a conclusion: “night is a combination/ of souls looking for their niches, / silence in its purest estate,/ a stable guarantee to those who cannot sleep”.

In twenty minutes, you will finish reading her letter. Otherwise, she will have counted time in a wrong way. That could mean that you’d be breaking a glass precept of hers. And she kind of likes it.
