Voices from the Susquehanna Volume III: Poetry and Art

Volume 3 CoverWelcome to Voices from the Susquehanna, Volume III the work of seventeen poets and artists. Step in and ponder love, beauty, and loss; the nature of poetry; the humor and mystery of aging; the end of time and the beginning of life. Walk down Main Street, Bourbon Street and the Ma and Pa Trail; meet creatures alien but familiar; spend time with robots, the homeless, the ocean, dragons, yoga, a wise fish, the moon, and every season. The poems present diversity of form--from familiar rhyme schemes to blank verse; from highly structured to whimsical. Some suggest a story in three lines. Some place the reader at the storyteller's knee for pages. Likewise the artists' images range from the highly rendered to the implied. Some shout; some whisper. Both the poems and the images are accessible, provocative and imaginative, offering understanding at first glance and inviting a longer look to discover more.

Voices from the Susquehanna: Volume II

Volume 2 CoverVoices from the Susquehanna, Volume II is our second collection of works eloquently presented for your reading pleasure. You'll read tales of joy, stories of despair, and crafted poems wherein melodic words paint exquisite, vivid images. You'll gain wisdom, sharpen your senses, reach into your soul, and become part of the characters whose lives fill the pages of this volume. New to the anthology is a collection of breathtaking black-and-white photographs. You'll see how each picture richly shows and tells far more than the proverbial thousand words. You'll savor and share the special moments that inspired our photographers to document them with their cameras.

Grandmothers, teachers, business administrators, scientists, and sailors--- all are wordsmiths worthy of a satisfying read.
