Books

This week I am rereading a poetry collection that we published with Time Of Singing in 2007: Welcoming Hope, Poems for those in need. The book may be ordered from the Time Of Singing books page.

The cover art is by Charles A. Waugaman (1932 – 2010), who also illustrated the book. Lora Homan Zill and I were editors. The TOS books page lists the featured poets.

The poems are timeless, and I am so grateful we were able to complete this book. Because of all that life has held since then, and new times now, I reread the poems and discover new meaning. And I am grateful.

Quiet Christmas Poetry, our large print chapbook, may also be ordered from the Time Of Singing books page. You can combine orders of both books, for the special price of 3 copies for 12 dollars. I know sometimes people also like to buy a book, and set it aside for a gift some day.

I have started a few new poetry chapbooks on my blogs, and have some drafts in my computer files. For now, I am letting these projects rest, and sharing what I have already been able to achieve. And posting my new “journal poems” here often.

Quiet Christmas Poetry began as a blog. Then Karl created the print book in 2014 from the site – all the content was there. The book was then printed by GT Graphics in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. Many ways to create.
