Thanks to all of you who commented on Joan Myles’s book last week. This week I have another fabulous book of poetry to share with you.

words of life ebook cover

Our featured book of the week is entitled Words of Life: Poems and Essays, written by Ann Chiappetta

 

Description:

Beautifully and powerfully, the author writes about both the light and dark sides of life. Here are poems and essays about nature, blindness, social isolation, families, dogs, delightful scents, and the power of the muse. Just as in her first book, Upwelling, there is no fluff here. To read Ann Chiappetta’s works is to feel them deeply, appreciate them mightily, and remember them forever.

Excerpt:

 

The writing muscle

 

Pumps ideas from gray matter

 

The writing muscle

Is a narsisist

Caring not for other obligations

Pouting when ignored

 

The muscle

requires attention,

exercise, nurturing

 

Sometimes it even demands control like

Symbiotic partnerships

 

And then, like the actions

Demanded by a well pumped

bicep or quadriceps

It will tremble with effort and delight

Overtake the writer’s chore list

 

Odorous Laundry piles ignored

Phone calls delayed

And an occasional burnt dinner entrée

fall victim

To the whims of

The Schwarzenegger Muse.
