By Iris Killens Cheeks
Many of us go through life feeling isolated and alone in a world full of family, friends, and gods. In I Sing the Blues and Cry, a survivor of childhood sexual abuse expresses through both poetry and prose the shared fear, confusion, anger, hope, and faith needed to accomplish joy in a world infused with pain. One out of every four little girls is sexually abused, and the majority of the abusers are family members or close friends of the family in America today. They are trapped in a cage of shame, guilt, and secrecy. Bodies grow, minds mature, yet there still remains a broken little girl within each victim. Author Iris Killens Cheeks shares conversations, verse, and vital resources to open a door into the thoughts, perceptions, and soul of a survivor of sexual, mental, and emotional abuse. This little girl found a way to survive, mature, and conquer many of the battles she faced due to traumatic experiences that no child should have to endure. Hers is a story that is poignant, revealing, and uplifting—a story of light, acceptance, forgiveness, and growth. I Sing the Blues and Cry is an inspiring look beyond the surface into the eyes of a child, a woman, and a survivor.

By Sharon Carpenter
Author Sharon Carpenter was introduced to the cowboy poetry writing and performing style by Joel Hayes, founder of Douglas County’s Poetry Writers Group located in Douglasville, Georgia. She was a performing poet with the Fourth, Fifth and Sixth Annual Georgia Cowboy Gatherings. Now, she has collected her cowboy poetry into one volume. Western Cowboy Poetry: An African American Perspective is an engaging collection of poems specifically written to be delivered at cowboy poetry gatherings. These verses provide an imaginary yet entertaining perspective on what life experiences might have been like for African Americans who strived to live in the western region of the United States during both the pre- and post-civil war era. These poems offer historical and contemporary cowboy viewpoints and they are based upon research of historical contributions of African Americans. Western Cowboy Poetry consists of four sections, emphasizing the journey and contributions of African American cowboys; the work experience for these cowboys; cowboy love stories; and the perspective of African American cowhands of the time on values. Isom Dart Let me tell you the story Of ol’ Isom Dart, How he broke my will and my soul, And also my heart. He was as elusive as them horses He was always chasin’; You think you landed him, Then you find—time, it was a wastin’ … “Sharon’s unique style brings an African American perspective on western cowboy poetry.” —Douglas County Sentinel

By Matthew Galbraith

Through the ages, mankind has looked to the night sky with solemn awe and persistent bewilderment. Who are we? Why are we here? Why does anything exist? How have we come to be self-aware? In recent times, physicists have produced a stream of astounding revelations into the history and design of the physical universe. For several millennia, spiritual traditions have prayerfully contemplated these cosmic puzzles, while the hearts of poets have sung to the sheer wonder of it all.

With reverence, humor, and a singular voice, poet Matthew Galbraith engages these timeless mysteries in a collection of heartfelt and meticulously crafted poetry. He presents four thematic groups that span a broad range of issues about life on Earth and beyond. As a man of faith with a deep appreciation of scientific inquiry, Galbraith offers a unique, global perspective poured forth in a waterfall of sensual sound, alluring rhythms, and surrealistic imagery.

Blueshift unveils a collection of melodic, mystical, and thought-provoking verse that provides a one-of-a-kind adventure into a vibrant poetic landscape.

By Daddy Dave

In The Twenty-Ninth Poem: Vol. 2, author Daddy Dave dedicates a variety of poems, stories, and observations to his daughter in honor of her twenty-ninth birthday. As with his first volume, which was dedicated to his son, this collection offers additional unique observations about life.

Written in free-verse, non-rhyming style, many of the entries reflect the mystic union between father and daughter:

and then a moment later I blew a little harder and a little harder
until finally I exhaled through my nose hard enough
onto that little finger of yours
that I made a slight honking sound, and you giggled.

That was the seed of the magic, and within seconds
the concept clicked with you, and you ran down the hallway
showing off your newly acquired talent
to your mother.

—from “How to Blow Your Nose”

No two children are exactly alike, and so this second volume differs from the first in that it includes some short stories, many written by the author’s daughter when she was in the fourth grade and included here with minor modifications. Children and families are precious, and Daddy Dave encourages every parent to write down their own versions of unique stories so that they can be remembered, considered, and passed down to future generations.

From a voyeur’s prize to the hidden persuaders in our society, Langfeld takes others on an entertaining lyrical ride through humility, political confusion, and spell check hell as he contemplates modern life and all it encompasses.

There’s a Brevitist Loose in the Condensory
shares a compelling collection of verse that offers an unforgettable glimpse into one man’s views about the world. “Powerful. Energetic. Stunning. [Your work is] … not just trickery because of what the actual language says to and about the world. I have never seen anything like what you do, the combination of humor and power. Harness that voice. Balance the coy and ironic with the other side.”
                                       —Daniel Khalastchi, faculty for the Iowa Summer Writing Festival

“Tightly spun … Controlled. A tight weave. Your poems are displays of virtuosity, but will they break a heart?”

“This is a unique approach to becoming a better, more loving, and stronger You.”

 

WORD(S), Volume 1 is a collection of contemporary poems with unique perspectives written by author Christopher O. James as a self-help study guide for teens and adults. The poetry, which stands alone as engaging literature, is combined with scriptures to guide the reader in further bible study and journal pages to write down prayers and the reader’s own reflections. Through creative poetry James offers an unrestrained look at real life, relationships, faith, failure, forgiveness, confidence, truth, salvation, fun, benevolence and Jesus Christ’s love. Challenging and inspiring poetry encourages readers to build a more committed, faithful and genuine personal relationship with God and raises the bar on the standard to love others.

Awesome

Awesome sounds fresher than amazing,
But both describe just how you are.
Courageous is what you have made me.
Despite all my battle scars.
Each time I come to you with a problem,
Forever you promise to solve them.
Given my tendency to fall into sin,
How does your holiness offer forgiveness again?
It’s your love, so compassionate, complete and true.
Jesus brought grace and paid justice as a gift to the living.
Kindness in action, well beyond what man would do.
Love from God is so enduring, merciful and forgiving…

By Tommy Melis

In this revised edition of his poetry collection, A Pale Shade of Blue, Tommy Melis explores topics ranging from feminism and equality to religious oppression and existential freedom. For this revision, he has added new poems written between 2011 and 2012 and included previously unreleased poetry written between 1999 and 2008, representing his earliest work. Like most Cuban Americans, he grew up in a family that celebrated their rich cultural history as both Cuban exiles and first-generation Americans.

The characters represented in his poems have overcome mental illness and found healing in identifying common societal themes between the blurred lines of justice and freedom. Having to find their way to the light, they speak out of the darkness they have seen, and their relentless emotional trappings they each seek to be free from. The stories are of perseverance and often speak of things normally swept under rugs. The poems in this collection are divided into five distinct books: “Book One: The Tree Growing” represents rebirth and belief; “Book Two: Stems” considers embracing and releasing the darkness; “Book Three: Branches” speaks to oppression and cultural moldings; “Book Four: Fire” covers lessons learned; and “Book Five: Roots” looks at the connection between the poet and his reader.

A Pale Shade of Blue
opens up the world of a vibrant culture and the emotions associated with overcoming personal challenges for all to consider.
