Butterfly: Collection of Poetry

by Melaysia Sekai

A butterfly is a symbol of change, joy, and color. A butterfly also is and was considered a miracle of transformation and resurrection. The connotation of the symbol of the butterfly once was initially negative and some people in the old days thought it to be the spirit of death.I chose Butterfly as the title of my book due to close friends and family always referring to me as their butterfly since I was a young girl. On a more personal level this book in an ode to a close friend of mine who passed away a few years back. His signature is incorporated in the butterfly on the cover of the book as well as a couple in the book. He always saw something in me, that for a long time I was unable to see in myself.A lot of these poems reflect the pain and heartbreak I have experienced over time. When I write I exude my spirit and energy to let go of my feelings and emotions, turning them into beautiful, soothing words. Almost like a caterpillar transcending to its higher self to form into a butterfly.”We are not human beings having a spiritual experience.We are beings having human experiences.”Pierre Teilhard De Chardin

Love in Bloom: Volume 3 (The Darkness and the Light)

by Cheryl Bradshaw

“I feel him in the breeze sometimes even though he doesn’t appear to be there or anywhere really, except I know he is. Some days the tiniest of hairs stand up on my neck and it feels like if I turned even a little I’d run right into him.” 
 
“Have you ever been pulled away from a thing you thought you no longer needed only to find you longed for it the minute it was absent from your presence?” 
 
“When the sooty ash rubs onto your clean, white shirt remember that if you choose to surround yourself with the dirty stains in life eventually you will get tainted yourself. Who you spend your time with is just as important as how you spend it.” 
 
“Sometimes the hardest thing to see is the thing right in front of us.” 
 
“I know a girl who thinks she’s found herself, and I don’t have the heart to tell her she hasn’t, that what she perceives to be love is nothing more than a neatly wrapped lollipop with a hollow center.” 
 
This third collection of poetry written by New York Times bestselling author Cheryl Bradshaw is split into two parts–the first darkness, the second light. These delicate, heartfelt poems allow you to explore the raw, heartfelt emotions we all experience in life–joy, sorrow, confusion, and above all … love.
 
Readers are saying: 
 
“I barely have the words to describe how moving this collection of poetry is.”
 
“They made my heart squeeze in sadness, and I could feel the agony.” 
 
“Gritty, raw, heartfelt collection. An excellent read.” 
 
“I sighed, cried, smiled and laughed as each new poem touched my heart.”

Bestsellers in Review (The Liberal Connection Book 8)

by Paul Anthony Obey

From the series ‘The Liberal Connection’, this is the eighth book by Paul Anthony Obey and looks at how we can be influenced by others. Not by friends and family necessarily but by strangers who have read a book and given their opinion about it.

It was interesting to randomly look at the top selling books on the internet, reviewed by ordinary people and how traditions, beliefs and prejudices were played out in the space of a few paragraphs of feedback.

This is a collection of social poetry, with a liberal conscience and a hope to provoke some thought. If it does then I am happy for you to be my audience, if it does not, then it is not for you unless you want to open your mind, even a little.

It’s not what it means, it’s what it means to you.

The Haiku Zoo: The Haiku Zoo Book 2: Tiger

by Mark Watson

Welcome to the Haiku Zoo!

Meet Tiger, the second animal we’ll visit on our trip to the Haiku Zoo.

Featuring fantastic illustrations from Dunstan Carter and stunning Haiku from Mark Watson, here comes a brand new twist on the short, Japanese poetry form, the Haiku.

A delightful new animal books series by Mark Watson, author of the multi-award-winning, bestselling children’s picture books “Milo & Ze“, “The Shark in the Park“, “The Travelling Circus” and “The Hairy Fairy“.

Haiku

What is a Haiku?

A Haiku is a very short poem with only three lines.

To understand how a Haiku works we need to know what a syllable is.

A syllable is a unit of pronunciation, a piece of a word.

Each piece is one vowel sound, ignoring the consonants.

So, “Lion” has two syllables.

Boom” has one syllable.

Integrity” has four syllables.

Now we know what a syllable is the next thing we need to know is the form of a Haiku.

A Haiku must only have three lines.

Each line has a number of syllables.

The first line has FIVE syllables.

The second line has SEVEN syllables.

The third line also only has FIVE syllables.

So a Haiku has a total of only SEVENTEEN syllables.

Hooray, we know what a Haiku is, when you finish reading the Haiku Zoo there are some exercises to do at the back and some activities to do with your friends in the classroom.

Welcome to the Haiku Zooâ?¦

Orchids and Neurons: Molecular Poetry

by Ellyn Peirson

We live on a planet that is a thin place – a place where time and light continually intersect. And yet we are taught to experience life as thick. When we move intentionally through the thickness that surrounds us and perceive Light, we can begin to punch peep-holes into and through Time.

I, as poet, live a solitary 4-P journey with the partners of Prose, Poetry, Photography and Prayer. In my journey of Time and Light, I’ve learned that I can free myself from the ballast of ordinary Time and soar in the Light. This is Time Travel for me. The most redemptive partner of my four is poetry. The process seizes me, and I become consumed by the emerging poem until it is complete. Poetry and prayer are closely related, at times with a loss of boundaries. I have written poetry since I was an eight year old girl on the Canadian prairies. I simply cannot imagine life without poetry.

Orchids and Neurons is an exploration of poetry as molecular and metaphysical, as highly musically-patterned and ontological. The poet is a simply a medium used in a complex process.

In this recent body of work, may you discern my process and see yours.

Unspoken Love during the Vietnam War (The Poem)

by Zero Mandingo

This poem was written in 1975, and hidden away until 2012.

At that time there was no avenue for anything that referred to same sex love.

It was written in a loose iambic pentameter, octave rhyme, as a form of cloaking the subject matter. It was written as a catharsis and for an English class — the Professor rejected it.

It is a story poem of disaster on a Navy ship, and the display of spiritual love of one man for another.

It is being told by myself. It is what I saw. IT IS NOT EROTICA.

And please, please review it. Good, bad or otherwise. Sorry it doesn’t offer zero for a rating. I’m Zero.
