by Meena Alexander, Quickly Changing River Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Quickly Changing River book, Recipient, 2008 Guggenheim Fellowship With her strong voice and precise language, Meena Alexander has crafted this visceral, worldly collection of poems. The experience she brings to the reader is sensual in many senses of the word, as she invokes bright colors, sounds, smells, and feelings. Her use of vivid imagery from the natural world—birds, lilies, horses—up against that from the world of humans—oppression, slavery, and violence—ties her work to the earth even as she works a few mystical poetic transformations. In Alexander’s world, the songs of a bird can become the voice of a girl in a café and the red juice of mulberries can be as shocking as blood. When she focuses her attention on the cloth of a girl’s sari, the material of a woman’s life, or the blood in her veins, she speaks to the particular experience of women in the world. The women are vividly present—sometimes they are hidden or veiled, juxtaposed with open gardens in full bloom. It is difficult not to come away from Quickly Changing River without a new sense of the power and frailty of being alive. Aletheia (Girl in River Water) First I saw your face, The your whole body lying still Hands jutting, eyelids shut Twin nostrils flare, sheer Efflorescebce when memory cannot speak- a horde of body parts glistening.

by Richard Mc Sweeney, Unto Lineage Royal Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Unto Lineage Royal book, Richard of Eire the self-originating philosopher, poet, artist, and publisher presents this metaphor rich life regression work as a miracle for our own day and a blessing for the generations to come. By means of dialogues, poems, letters and articles on love, culture, heritage, morality, and the environment he visits a past of himself in the ‘present’ rather than a past of himself in the ‘past’ per se. This beautifully engaging compact offering is a work of fiction based on a good deal of factual input; a cornucopia of literary unpredictability. The transcending message of this chanson d’amour parfumée may be best summed up by stating that while love invites us to love it is to friendship that we are we called. A beautiful volume inspiring ardent trust, hope, and love in self throughout the ages. The work is presented in a ‘status update format’ embroidered with the author’s own exquisite 185 digital artworks: all in colour. Note: in the print edition the artworks are in greyscale. The fonts and page numbering in this ebook correspond to the 2009 hardback edition.
