I chose the title, "Magic Lamp, Pillar and Comet," from one of the included poems to allude to the multiple facets that life can take on. These poems explore some of those varied angles. I find that poetry can distill our thoughts and help to focus them, acting as a companion through the navigation of life’s many dimensions. My hope is that you will find a relatable stanza or a chance for interesting contemplation within this chapbook as well.
Magic Lamp, Pillar and Comet is available in paperback.
This chapbook was created as part of a poetic memoir challenge. I found that recording and examining the past through poetry helped to ground the present by putting things into perspective and clarifying what is truly important. Even small bits of history can open a window of insight into relationships whether humorous or more serious. I hope you enjoy some of the scenarios presented in this collection.
Memory Echoes is available in paperback.
