Necessities by Rori O'Keeffe
Series: Memorable Verse, Book 29. Price: Free! Words: 1,430. Language: English. Published: May 25, 2015. Categories: Fiction » Poetry » Contemporary Poetry, Fiction » Inspirational
Courage; healthy attitudes towards the self; forgiveness of our own errors and those of others; recognition of the reality of our solitary paths in life; and, as always, the acknowledgement that we live in a world that is hostile to true, deep love. Rather than prose and poetry about love, these seven poems look at what is required in ourselves before we can truly love another person. ~900 words.
Poetry I - Destination by Dav Santos
Series: A Poet's Romance. Price: Free! Words: 1,060. Language: English. Published: May 14, 2015. Categories: Fiction » Poetry » Contemporary Poetry, Fiction » Romance » Contemporary
Life is a journey, and love somehow makes the experience seem worthwhile. The first book in a series of poetry collections, Destination is a poetic expression of love's ever-enduring bittersweetness and begs the question: "Is loving someone really worth all the pain?"

Strike Out Poetry by Kennie Kayoz
Price: Free! Words: 420. Language: English. Published: April 27, 2015 by Coyotes Publishing. Categories: Fiction » Poetry » Canadian Poetry, Fiction » Poetry » Contemporary Poetry

The Journey by Rori O'Keeffe
Series: Memorable Verse, Book 28. Price: Free! Words: 1,550. Language: English. Published: April 27, 2015. Categories: Fiction » Poetry » Contemporary Poetry, Fiction » Poetry » Biography
Life is full of magic, if only we look first to what is within. We live in a world that tells us meaning, reality and happiness can be found if we look outside ourselves; this is not so, and these poems trace a journey from the freedom of youth, through the prisons of attempted conformity, back to the freedom of adult anarchy. There is no escaping alienation in this world - so be free of spirit.
9 by Rori O'Keeffe
Series: Memorable Verse, Book 27. Price: Free! Words: 1,220. Language: English. Published: April 25, 2015. Categories: Fiction » Poetry » Contemporary Poetry, Fiction » Poetry » Canadian Poetry
Against the backdrop of a solitary person's life, I use a little number crunching to compose nine poems, each of nine lines. Reading these poems may lead to hope - or to terror, but probably not ennui. The key answer to our dilemma, I think, is practical - but perhaps not possible to engage in these times. Whether beset by problems, or soothed by solutions, strong action is imperative.
A Picture Frozen by Brent King
You set the price! Words: 6,310. Language: English. Published: April 24, 2015. Categories: Fiction » Poetry » American poetry, Fiction » Poetry » Contemporary Poetry
Each poem in this collection of my poetry from the past forty years is like a picture frozen in time: a snapshot from my life. Sometimes my feelings surprise me and sometimes they confirm me. Often they make me laugh or cry...after all, I am just an ordinary guy. I feel privileged to share these impressions with you; moments both lost and found in my life.
