Are you drowning in life, longing for the time when you weren't worried, when peace reigned supreme? Ever wanted to live the gypsy life, where it's easy to pull up stakes and roll down the road to meet new friends and neighbors? Do you daydream about that first kiss, relishing those emotions?

Poetic Memory is nine poems, ~1,000 words, that deal with memory as the fruit of a life still being lived. Thankfully, we don't have perfect memories - important meanings would be lost in the myriad mundane details of the past. Old memories come to us as poetic memory, where sights can become smells, and events are transformed into stories with crystal-clear meanings. Mature themes.

Nothing lasts forever, and more people are waking up to that truth, in light of the recent election result in the U.S. Will the flame of freedom be snuffed out in America? Only if bigotry is allowed to trump love. A hateful government with menacing powers at its disposal can do no more than frighten, if it is opposed by those many Americans who still believe in the power of love. Five poems.
An Aptitude For Perversity
Series: Memorable Verse, Book 15. Price: $1.99 USD. Words: 1,040. Language: English. Published: February 12, 2014. Categories: Fiction » Poetry » Contemporary Poetry, Fiction » Poetry » Themes & motifs
What could possibly be the rules of the game, when perversity rules? These four poems look at the traps of perversity - and the sense of the perverse that can lead a way out of the dream-labyrinth that we are told is reality. Leaning heavily on prose but with poetic flair, An Aptitude For Perversity empowers the poet (and possibly the reader,) to keep their feet planted solidly on the earth.

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.

Given that more and more people, particularly children and young adults, are being foisted into a failing, pill-pushing 'Mental Hellth' system, it behooves us to take a long hard look at the type of 'care' they are receiving. This is a collection of poems written by a psychiatric survivor, witnessing the abusive, highly coercive and drug-orientated psychiatric state first hand.
The Music Of Living

We are all creatures of feeling within ourselves; music is the universal language of emotion, and so from the serenity of sleep to the cacophony of sounds from around the world, all may be understood as music that fills our beings. These three poems look at the music emanating from within me, the music that surrounds me throughout the day, and the sounds that come from all over. 800 words.

Series: Memorable Verse, Book 13. Price: $1.99 USD. Words: 1,070. Language: English. Published: January 5, 2014. Categories: Fiction » Poetry » Contemporary Poetry, Fiction » Poetry » Themes & motifs
There would be no need for hope, were it not for the tragic dimensions of life; and so we hope for many things - and love is at the crux of all we desire. No life can be lived without tragedy; yet, sadly, hope can be lost. To hold onto hope it is necessary to recall what it is we hope for most in this world and beyond - a connection with others through love. Enjoy these four poems, and ponder.

We are implored to seek isolation from others through selfishness, paradoxically, in order to find happiness. How can a person overcome the dictates of self-interest and become fulfilled? By looking within ourselves, and by looking to others, and by looking upwards, we may find the cures for one of the great, dismissed ailments of our age: Personal loneliness. These 7 poems point to the answers.

Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 6,380. Language: English. Published: June 27, 2016. Categories: Fiction » Poetry » Contemporary Poetry, Fiction » Poetry » American poetry
A continent gorges itself on new arrivals. Vagabonds and lost animals collide at midnight in alleys, sheets, and casinos for distraction, denial, shouting “never” into darkness. Anything sounds like a symphony when you turn the volume all the way up. —from "Piano" Matthew Howard, creator of The Adventures of Meteor Mags and Patches, cranks up the verse in more than 80 poems.

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.
Finding Home Again
Price: $0.99 USD. Words: 1,610. Language: Canadian English. Published: May 30, 2017. Categories: Fiction » Poetry » Contemporary Poetry, Fiction » Inspirational
Drawn from my deeply cherished memories, without aid of photographs, journal or souvenirs, I relished putting these poems to paper, as I discovered something of my relationship to home that I hadn't quite yet realized. In here you'll find enchanting poems about people, memory, searching, observing, and hoping. The emotional depth is adult, but younger people can safely read these eight poems.
Beautiful Ways
Series: Memorable Verse, Book 16. Price: $1.99 USD. Words: 1,650. Language: English. Published: March 12, 2014. Categories: Fiction » Poetry » Contemporary Poetry, Fiction » Inspirational

What is it about life that draws us onward through our days? It is seeing through the eyes of others, enriching ourselves with the experiences and dreams that illuminate other lives. Life as it is seen through the eyes of children, or fish, or partying youth, or a great friend, can give us glimpses of what it is to be free-spirited, and reverential of what is given us. No adult-only content.
A Respite From Clarity
Series: Memorable Verse, Book 4. Price: $1.99 USD. Words: 1,410. Language: English. Published: July 16, 2013. Categories: Fiction » Poetry » Contemporary Poetry, Fiction » Poetry » Canadian Poetry
Not knowing is to see clearly; knowing is to see without clarity. In these eight poems I drop back to a knowing point of view, in the hopes of understanding the world and how I fit into it a little better. Written with hesitancy, and comprehensible in only the slightest time, I draw a world in these poems that is doomed to obey the laws of Nature, regardless of what we may wish. (Mature themes.)

Paradise is discovered in retrospect, after it is lost. It is the best of all possible worlds - the best we can muster at present. These thirteen poems consider paradise from this vantage point.
