Travels Between Imaginary Shores

by Benjamin Gerber

A collection of short works, poems and a one act play.

In this collection, you will find work from between 1988 and 2006. None of these particular bits ever found a home elsewhere, although a few may have seen publication in little know zines and extraordinarily small press magazines.

In collecting them in one volume, I hope to have given them all a kind of home, a family of like-minded and similarly aged words.

Topics include – xenophobia, big dogs, escape velocity, an estate sale of the gods and more!



Living in the Moment of Grace

by Marita Gale

Living in the Moment of Grace is a two month period where I left Sedona, Arizona on May 27, 2011 to venture into the unknown other than two destinations, the first destination being Knoxville, Tennessee to my daughter’s wedding on June 4, 2011 and then to Taos, New Mexico on July 24, 2011 speaking on “Living in the Moment of Grace” at the Unity Church of Taos. Other than these two events I surrendered to the moment and trusted God would take care of all the details. I left Sedona with $400 and returned to Sedona with $1,600. Amazing what happens when I let go and let God. My story is told through poetry as well as journal entries.



Dare I Express It: Heal the Past, Live the Present, Dream the Future

by Leandrea Rivers

Successful, self-published author of “The Most Loved” Leandrea Rivers, is at it again. This time, with a brilliant and masterful collaborative poetry series. “Dare I Express It” features two talented poets: Ms. Rivers and Dwayne McLendon.

This first volume of the “Dare I Express It” series explores the journeys of true love, love lost and love found. What’s unique is Leandrea Rivers’ ability to shed light on the beauty of self-love, acceptance of others and passionate need for romance. Rivers believes every young girl dreams of being a princess. Unfortunately, when these same girls become women, they realize a few frogs may have to be kissed before they experience their prince charming rescuing them. She eloquently captures the want and need of women desiring men who have the knowledge and ability to display chivalry, engage in intriguing dialogue and men with a zest for life. Her poems (I Wish I Hadn’t Told You, I Should Have Been and Words Spoken) are insightful, encouraging, divinely beautiful and most of all, eye opening. This collection of poems parallel the four seasons that so many of us face; light rains, intense heat, brisk passing winds, and brutal cold.

Dwayne McLendon explores conversations surrounding “Judgment”, the idea that “Realistically, we pre-judge people and people don’t change, they’re portraying who they really are!” McLendon begs to differ and offers poems (Who Says Men Don’t Cry, No Assembly Required, and I’m For Real) that unchain our thoughts and cast down many of the stereotypes that women and men place on each other. Once unchained, we are left with insight to help us produce healthy and harmonious relationshipsâ??both romantic and platonic. He challenges the reader to relinquish any prejudices and concentrate on redefining “self” instead. Ladies are ushered into the heart and thoughts of a man and gentlemen are given discerning, yet positive perspectives about manhood â?¦Dare I Express It



Semi Detached: Books/Parts/ & the Abstractions of a Cursed Village

by Natural Flowism

In poetical fiction

I will stand trial two ways

Life has become a ring

I feel dragged in

As a nothing

The receiver

An empath

To a diversionary

Using curses

Never speaking to anybody

With the true intent of respecting!



Enter the Dance

by Marita Gale

Enter the Dance is a collection of poems inspired by tourists and locals in a coffee shop in Sedona, Arizona called Heart of Sedona (originally called Raven Heart). I began doing poetry and art in this coffee shop when it was named Raven Heart in May of 2010 until it was sold in September of 2010. I created a poetry book titled Return to the Heart. Enter the Dance is now my second book in this coffee shop inspired by the locals and tourists. Enter the Dance has inspired me to take a new direction in life. I have lived in Sedona now for almost three years and I am being led to take what I have learned and loved from Sedona into the world outside. On September 16, 2012 I am walking from Sedona, Arizona to Prescott, Arizona and return to Sedona on September 22, 2012. World Peace Day is September 21, 2012. I am walking for peace and doing poetry along the way. I truly am entering the dance of life feeling refreshed, vitalized and loved and am very grateful for the love that I have received from all these tourists and locals of Sedona. I will be keeping Sedona as a home base at this time. I plan to do many Peace Walks and continue to write poetry along the way. May Enter the Dance inspire you to take chances as you enter the dance of life as it has done for me.
I love you
Marita

Keeping Life in Balance is a collection of poems inspired from the hearts of young adult ages 10 to 19. I have now written 11 poetry books, approximately 700 poems, since moving to Sedona, Arizona in November 2009. I discovered 39 poems inspired from these young adults out of these 700 poems. I see these poems as sparkling diamonds with such wisdom and clarity flowing from their hearts I stand in awe at their messages. May these poems remind you how much wisdom young adults have and how much love they are shining to us all while keeping life in balance and not slipping off the ledge.

May these poems take you back to the innocence of being a child, playful and enjoying ice cream castles and lemonade.



The Joys of Life

by Marita Gale

I did an art workshop on December 20, 2011 at a spa in Sedona, Arizona and I did a portrait and poem for the guest. I then began painting energy drawings and poems in the spa’s lobby on Friday through Sunday. The following poems have been inspired by the guest, members and the employees as well as a few of my own personal poems. I titled this book The Joys of Life for I discovered so much joy talking to the many people who I met and who blessed me with their divine presence as they helped me capture their essence into poetry.

Sit back and relax and imagine you are in Sedona, Arizona on vacation breathing in the beauty of this mystical magical place. May each one of these poems fill you with grace as it takes you to that sacred space in your heart. These poems brought joy to my life. May they do the same for you.
