Book Description: Charlie Hasler returns with his second book of poems. Further Thoughts is one man's view of the world around him. It is a candid expression of the trials that come with battling mental health demons, the exhaustion that comes with the search and pursuit of happiness and the inner peace that is achieved once finding it.
Another great volume of verse from a master manipulator of speech. (John Farebrother)
beautiful expression of the inner voice. (Kimelene Carr)
I have been a fan of Mr Hasler's poetry for some time and this his second book confirms why. (Nigel Smith)
I previously read volume 1 of this book and I didn't think it could be topped but I was wrong about that!! (Joanna)
3 a.m. Blues is a reflection on a relationship gone wrong in all the right ways. From denial and bitterness to acceptance and forgiveness, it is a journey of great heartache that turned into tremendous personal growth.
In Soil of the Divine, Jason Kanz explores the themes of wholeness, redemption, and integration through poetic form. Inspired by the Psalms, this collection contains 150 poems rooted in ancient scripture and daily life. The Psalms have been a principle means of prayer and emotional expression for thousands of years, yet their light has never dimmed. May this collection of poems encourage you to see the Psalms afresh and inspire you to pursue a life of shalom.
A city holds certain romance
but there is a deep and darkening feeling
I'm not sure where she could be,
but I can feel her red heart beating
I can feel this moment fleeting.
City, Ruby is a chapbook with an existential look inside the modern city persona - a life affected by ever-accelerating technology and the inhumane perception against the poor and working. But under it all, there are moments of pure human connection when two souls find escape within each other. This collection is inspired by the character of Seattle, the Emerald City, and the constant yet futile desire to escape from it. It is a searching question into the hidden world of suits and gowns, of galas and the view from the skyline.
This is first collection from rising Seattle author Seth Seong, written directly from the heart, without pretense. He utilizes both the Korean Sijo form, and unstructured prose.
