THE HOUR WASP by Jay Sheets does the unspeakable. It takes you on a journey, in three sections, through morose, sometimes tragic imagery (the ouroboros rinsed in venom / [flickering] the shape of things unshaped // no silken moments / only that which is always breaking / [something is always / breaking here]), and finds itself, in those melancholy moments of the second section some hint of a truth, of a reason, of hope, or a hope (the hour wasp awakens // & we are the things that take shape / & we let the things without shape take shape), and then, finally, we come to the final section, the send-off, the great, all-encompassing display of universal truths, using similar images, visions Mr. Sheets has experienced himself through dreams and meditations, and gives the reader the sense of understanding, almost accomplishment as she has waded through the dark along with the author and illustrator and come to find a sense of solace, one that may stand the test of time (i see the thousandth star / she looks to the thousandth star / the thousandth star is us // & i wonder if i / or anyone i know should be so lucky / & i light a new fire at the end of myself).

By Imania Margria

ASIN: B01HYFLKYS
Genre: Poetry
Formats Available For Review: pdf, print (limited quantities, only available to qualified reviewers/bloggers in the U.S.), kindle, nook & google

Everyone has secrets hidden somewhere deep inside of them. Not everyone has the courage to reveal the secrets hidden deep inside them because they are afraid they might negatively affect their lives. But when the risk is worth taking, releasing the burden of secrets can provide rewards greater than our fears.

In her collection of poetry and prose, Imania Margria shares long- hidden secrets of her heart with the hope that she will inspire others to do the same. Within verse that explores secrets of love, forbidden desire, hope, loss, and passion offered in English, Italian, and Spanish, Margria candidly reflects on her emotions as she searches for answers, her purpose, and her true love. Included in her poignant collection is an excerpt of Margria’s soon-to-be-released romance novel, Eyes.

Secrets of My Heart is a heartfelt collection of powerful poetry and prose inspired by one woman’s personal experiences and thoughts.

Poetry – City Times and Other Poems

City Times and Other PoemsCity Times and Other Poems
By Vihang A. Naik
Publisher: AuthorHouse

Vihang A. Naik throws light on the life of a city in all its shades, glory and misery in his City Times and Other Poems. It is an anthology of his intuitive and philosophical poems. The Poems are divided in 6 segmentsi.e. ‘Love Song of a Journey Man’ is more or less an inner travelogue, The segments, for instance, ‘Mirrored Man’ is about the other chimeras in the city .The people in the city are capricious like the walk of a crab or the colours of a chameleon. While, ‘The Path of Wisdom’ is about the beginning of meditation and knowledge. ‘At the Shore’ records the poet’s sense of futility, memory, pain, exile and alienation at the shore of life. The title of this collection is also the heading for the last of its six sections, in which the city is unfolded as a market place, as a heaven for underdogs, and as a seed bed of change and is observed at evening, at mid-night, by moon light and through fog and haze.

The poem titled ‘Self Portrait’ starts with the diagrammatic sketch with 7 blank pages where the reader finds only 3 words at the tail-end of the page…Here “the poet envisions in an epiphanic moment, the true nature of ones self when he wakes up, ‘to see my / Self ‘ ‘discovered beyond thought’ . Between ‘my self’ and ‘discovered beyond thought’ are five blank pages. The ineffable epiphany of ambiguous. It may either suggest the discovery of a transcendental Self beyond all thought and language or it may suggest the discovery of an Absence beyond the human thought and speech.
