As of this writing Wounds I Healed: The Poetry of Strong Womenis still running #1 on Amazon New Releases [poetry anthologies]. I cannot tell you how humbled and delighted I am. The poetry in this volume is fabulous. Your voices deserve to be heard.
Below is my one of my readings from Wounds I Healed: The Poetry of Strong Women: Beginnings, by Jo Lynn Juneau. I hope you enjoy it. I hope it inspires you to start reading your own poems.
Beginnings by Jo Lynn Juneau
Cast out of Paradise, Eden’s perpetual exiles the surreptitious serpent, now lies crushed under our feet God took a lesser part of Man, and created from it the strength of humanity we bear the world in our wombs, and bear its weight on our shoulders we suffer the pain of giving life, so we suffer death differently we are harbingers of antiquity and the future we are Goddess we are Mother we are One
Since June 17 Wounds I Healed: The Poetry of Strong Women has been a #1 Amazon bestseller. As I write this update it still is. Thank you to everyone who helped us. We would not be #1 without you.
Check our publisher Experiments in Fiction‘s post here to see a picture of our book in a bookstore in UK. It is exciting. The book is fantastic. It deserves to be read. It deserves to be in bookstores.
Have a lovely day and thank you for spreading the word about our anthology.
Spoken Word – Reading of Gabriela Marie Milton’s Poetry
I am humbled by Swarn’s [@theedemaruh] decision to read two of my poems: Prayer published by Free Verse Revolution, and I Want My Body Burned included in my poetry collection Passions: Love Poems and Other Writings.
Swarn captured and deepened the meaning of my poems. The tone and the execution of the readings are superb. They are a testimony of his great talent. While listening to his recitation I asked myself: Can he see into my soul? It certainly felt that way.
A note to you my dear readers. It is not about how many followers you have. It is about their quality. It’s about how they can enrich your life, and how you can enrich theirs.
As the song goes: May you always do for others And let others do for you – Bob Dylan
Please listen to Swarn’s readings.
Two beautiful poems are now up at MasticadoresUSA.
