My little booklet of songs and poems by David Forest
The poems and songs in this short book are a selection from throughout the author's life. The author has tried to promote a whimsical mix of variety rather than adhere to a progression of theme or style. As such each work can be enjoyed as an individual piece. All of the songs and poems have their own distinctive feel - from short pithy works and rhyme to free verse; from soft rock lyrics to dystopian bleakness. A varied [...]
 
Confessions of a Mystic - There is no more by Mark Gerard Craig
The Tao that you can name is not the true Tao. The perspective that you think is ultimate truth is not "The Truth." Like a slippery fish it wriggles free from our grip and returns to the deep from whence it came. Can a person catch the wind and hold it in their cupped hands? Of course not. It is foolish to even contemplate doing so. Yet, the wild and uncontainable impulse that is God, some optimistic individuals and groups [...]
 
Anatomy of a Poet by CJ Heck
Poetry can be daunting and hard to understand, but it doesn't have to be. I feel a poet has an obligation to write in a way that everyone can understand. Poems should flow softly through a poet's words, their meanings gently caressing the heart and mind of its reader. If a poem comes from the heart, it will reach other hearts, and this is what I've tried to do with the poetry in "Anatomy of a Poet". ~CJ Heck "Like a rose with [...]

Pretty Words - from a tale-spinner's heart by Harlow Clark
A deep and thoughtful collection of poems and two essays written over the course of three years about life, love, and the random and sometimes poetic thoughts that float through my brain. I'm a storyteller at heart, and I don't consider what I've written any more than flinging together pretty words in hopes that I'd hit a few heart strings and touch someone's life for the better. These poems are supposed to read like music on [...]
 
Titans of Philosophy - Descartes, Kant, Rousseau, Nietzsche, Sartre by Marciano Guerrero
From my adolescence to my golden years and calmed old age, the reading of philosophy has always been a happy companion. My first serious encounter with philosophical ideas occurred when a friend lent me a novel Nausea published by Jean-Paul Sartre, the French philosopher. Fresca is still that afternoon of my youth when I read the novel from beginning to end on a bench in La Recoleta square in Lima, Peru. I thought then, "What [...]

The philosophical approach I use and the style, in which the poems are written, is a good and positive [...]

Midnight Road by Jason Kessler
Midnight Road is a poetry collection I was inspired to write by the at times painful works of Charles Bukowski. It covers approximately two years of extreme change in my life. I began writing it towards the end of a turbulent relationship with a woman I was dating in Italy. I had quite a bit of free time on my hand so it seemed like an interesting thing to do. Very quickly it became my new obsession. Poems of this period [...]

Between Soul and Stone - Poems by Margo Berdeshevsky
A good lady at a recent reading for "Between Soul and Stone" asked me, "but where =is=that? Meaning where exactly did I have in mind... for such a place that lies between those two points, soul & stone, in my title. The facile answer might be a landscape of passions and emotions hung between heaven and earth. But I intended a little more.
