Zee Zahava measures the universe in small poems. With a loving tone she invites you, the frog, and even the ant, to share her intriguing perspective. Don’t be surprised if perhaps her happiness grows wings, a tail, or “travels backwards,” but she will not vanish, and neither will you. Like the moon in her poems, she keeps her eyes on us all.

— Kath Abela Wilson

Zee Zahava often begins the day with a morning walk, where she welcomes the possibilities of the new day and makes peace with the eternal now. As she notes in one of the small poems in this collection, she searches “each puddle for signs of magic.” Such is the heart and spirit of this intimate collection — in turns poignant, humorous, self-aware, curious, and warm. This is a collection to embrace.

— Tom Clausen

The small poems in “here i am,” by Zee Zahava, sprouting from home and neighborhood, have warmth and humor that connect the reader even with the moon.

praise —

‘wild voices: an anthology of short poetry & art by women’ is a celebration of the female voice, filled with loud exuberance and quiet reflection. The anthology brings together a chorus of women who soar with their poems and artwork, while taking the reader on a journey of self-discovery. Like drops of ice wine, each page is refreshing and rich, in imagery and meaning. This is a powerful collection that reveals many facets of women, as mothers, lovers, poets, artists, creators, survivors, and as one with nature.

praise —

“Mike Keville is both very down-to-earth and a very modest person, and even more modest poet. This book shows he should be recognised by a wider audience. What I’m astounded by, is that despite seeing his poems here and there, mostly on social media, I had no idea he had such a strong collection in him already, waiting to be published. It’s been a humbling experience, reading the manuscript, both as an entire overall larger poem, as any fine collection should be, in my opinion, and its smaller components of individual verse. Mike has both haiku and tanka in his blood, and brings in a partnership of the classical and the modern seamlessly. There’s such a lightness, and a lot of shade, with varied tones of humour, and the deepest poignancy. Clearly this is a human who engages in life and knows it is fleeting, and it has to be enjoyed, even in times of great danger and ill health. This is one of those books you will want to keep close to hand, and heart, and to reach out for, from your bedside, on stormy nights, and other uneasy times. This is a collection you will love to read when you are feeling happy and can feel happier, and one to read when things get bad, very bad.”

— Alan Summers, Founder of With Words; Japan Times award-winning writer; and Pushcart nominated poet.

praise —

Originally inspired by Diane DiPrima’s groundbreaking collection, “Loba,” Carole Johnston has created a powerful woman-as-goddess quest poem in “Manic Dawn.” Johnston uses verse forms inspired by the Japanese haiku and tanka to create a work that is deeply grounded in the rich Celtic legends of the Morrigan, the goddess-queen-crow whose varying forms connote both life and death, mortality and immortality. Johnston brings this ancient legend into contemporary life by means of a subtle interplay, a dance, between the shape-shifting Morrigan character and the poem’s persona. Their lives and stories are connected through an intricate web of exquisite imagery: music, crows, dance, the bags of the bag lady, moon, wings. Precise shifts in the images signal developments in the characters and ensure that the rich and varied mythic context of the poem maintains its coherence and integrity. The radiant beauty of Anne Milligan’s paintings provides striking visual complement to each section of the poem, amplifying the mythic themes that the poem develops. “Manic Dawn” is an exquisite and powerful volume of poetry and painting.

— Dr. Jonel Curtis Sallee
