The Seed Bridge: Collected Poems

by Terrence Craft

The Seed Bridge is a collection of autobiographical poems composed by Terrence Alonzo Craft, covering a variety of themes: ardent and fiery love, airy philosophy, joy and pain, life lessons, and the esoteric. The pieces reflect a period of fifteen years, from Craft’s mid-teenage years to his late twenties. They tell of the creation of powerful relationships as well as the deconstruction of those bonds; the development of strong religious beliefs and the painful losses of faith; transcendental philosophical brushstrokes and metaphysical pondering; declarations of personal strength and expressions of profound weakness. These poems read like abstract stories, exposing the artist bare. Rarely, will one encounter a work in which an artist is so transparently and fearlessly exposed. There’s as much fragility as there is fortitude: power, courage, vigor, contentment and peace of mind blend here with vulnerability, fear, anguish, melancholy, and misery. The result is a wholly human portrait.

The poems relate interesting life situations, small or large, that have left a mark on the artist and made him who he is. Pastel and Shell discusses the dangers of giving oneself to others without reciprocity. Two Quaint Poems is a two-part piece about blind head-first love. The Prophet’s Spice Truck details a quasi-obsessive one-way-street friendship, while Chinatown paints the hopelessness of disillusioned youth. Self-Righteous sees an almost manic pride devolve into fetal desperation, as The Naked God is a request from a disciple begging to see a clearer sign of his Lord. For Certain is the doubt about everything that we all have in our quietest moments, and Caliweto is a wild, Mephistophelean piece about the depths of depression. The final poem, Suihallawuiyou (or the Girl at Ota’lu’kume), is an art piece that uses the Delphic, the mystical, and the arcane to weave an experience.

These are pieces to be digested and, at the end of the collection, you will gain an insight into the author which reflects back to your own human experience. This is no attempt at braggadocio, nor is it a pity-fest. It is an expression of the wholeness of life.

Conditionally juggle moments in life which seek undistorted truth. I give you my “transitional zen and conditional juggling”.

Thirty five mobile art photos and thirty five lyric poems exploring the transitions between love, life, disappointment, grief, reconciliation, alienation, and hope.

A Study of Light

by S Findsen

By exploring the subject of light through verse and image I have attempted to capture the drama of human experience. Each of us throughout our lives experience the joy of acceptance and love; the pain of rejection and indifference; the confusion of fear and hate; the discovery of true love; the crushing blow of lost love; the dark hole of self-pity and lost hope; the false path of pride; and finally, hopefully, the peace, humility and contentment of knowing who we are and why we exist, when we stand fully in the Light.

The verse written was inspired by life and the people in it. “Light of You” is inspired by my wife, Michelle, and our journey to becoming spiritual partners. We all battle hurt, lost, and times of total despair, yet the most constant and fierce battle, for me, is the battle of self. I have found that the battle of self is eased when we enter fully into the light of truth and embrace it. Do this and you will experience the rewards of peace and calm, joy, love, and the contentment of knowing who you are and why you exist. My hope is that the verse and images in this small book help you on your journey of life.
