Shorts: Terse Verse
By
Price: $0.99 USD. Words: 1,870. Language: English. Published: October 6, 2010. Category: Fiction » Poetry » Contemporary Poetry
Modern taste runs to short poems—and these verses are precisely that. Over fifty verses, ranging from a six-line reduction of Christopher Marlowe’s "Dr. Faustus" to a one-word, slant-rhyme, leonine line in iambic dimeter. Most start with another poem—either a single line or the entire work—then respond to it, confute it, subvert it, pun on it, or otherwise simply have fun with it. Enjoy!

Stella Pierides' collection of poetry/haiku "In the Garden of Absence" takes you on a journey echoing the author's childhood. Yet it does so in the context of adult concerns, uncertainties, and anxieties—as well as pleasures. This book explores the existential fear of loneliness, the many facets of absence, and glimpses a path towards bearing absence and being creatively alone.
