No one was raped. No one knew what rape was. Or killing. Or starvation. Except my father. And he didn't talk about the War. .

9 by Rori O'Keeffe
Series: Memorable Verse, Book 27. Price: $0.99 USD. Words: 1,290. 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.

We walk a fine line between the light and the dark... This book contains poems about the beauty of nature: that of the natural world that surrounds us and the cities we live in, as well as human nature. This is contrasted with poems that deal with the heart of darkness that can be found in humanity, and the strange and shadowy aspects within society and ourselves.
