Hidden Brook Press

SOLD OUT

SYNOPSIS: "The Canadian Red Cross Society extends its congratulations and thanks to Richard Grove of Hidden Brook Press and the many talented authors who so generously donated their work for inclusion in Time of Trial. We also extend our thanks to the generous corporate sponsors whose financial support made the publication of this book possible as a fundraiser for the Red Cross USA Appeal. During times of crisis, people turn to each other in a common humanity. September 11, 2001 will be etched in our minds forever. These poems echo the breadth of human emotion - heartbreak, despair, anger and more importantly love, tolerance and hope for a future free of hatred and war. It is this call for tolerance, understanding and respect among all people that truly reflects the basic principles of the Red Cross." --Lois Flemming, Director Fund Development, CRCS 111 pages.

Oval Victory
Oval Victory

Hidden Brook Press

SOLD OUT

SYNOPSIS: "...The poems in this anthology, like eggs gathered at sunrise or stones picked from a beach and skipped into the sea, take the ordinary shape of existence and exalt it. We can hold them in our hands or set them free. Inside every one of them is a creature with wings.... What struck me with the chosen poems was their humanity. The best of new Canadian poetry is offered here, and it isn't the poetry of alienation or the poetry of conflict. It is the poetry of redemption. The cutting edge has gone soft. It is as approachable and nourishing as a breast, or an egg. This book is filled with words crafted to make us whole again. The collective noun for it is a "kindness of poems." It is, in every sense, an oval victory." --Linda Rogers, editor 159 pages.

SYNOPSIS: "...The idea of writing a poem about love in all its shapes and colors reduces most of us to mush. I expected a lot of mush when I started reading the poems in this volume, because that is what we make of our feelings. We too often add the water of our most abstract words and stir... Love is ordinary, the more ordinary the more extraordinary. That truth was affirmed over and over again in the poems I have chosen... These poems are about the transformation of lust into love, passion into reason, innocence into experience. Each one is a journey. There is a movement, like the flight of a bird that takes us toward that place we are incapable of describing, where love is light." -- Linda Rogers, contest judge 157 pages.

Passion Among The Cacti Press

CDN $8.00
Available through:
   Canadian Poetry Association

SYNOPSIS: This is a brave little book. Over the course of a long winter a poet's thoughts belong not only to the bony squeeze of a winter's hand on the heart, but come more from a longer season's experiences with a deeper, more prolonged depression. These are transient griefs, and bitter, prolonged journeys into despair. Writing of them may have allowed a little light into the darkest corners. It takes courage to examine the truth and commonality of this condition. Some of the expressions here have resulted in provocative, sympathetic and rather beautiful poetry. We hope that this collection will reach out to clasp hands with any in despair, so that they will recognize some understanding, some acknowledgment of suffering, and most poignantly that they are not alone. 24 pages.

SYNOPSIS: If you knew you could make a difference would you use your words to heal humanity or walk a path of silent calm? We chose to make a difference. Find out how. I was amazed at the number of submissions, and the care each poet took in satisfying the theme of hope and prosperity for the future. It is the reason that a society such as The Canadian Federation of Poets exists, to nurture those who need to be heard. This volume is a testament to the talent out there. I look forward to the resurgence of poetry in everyday life, with this positive message and outlook. 56 pages.
