DESCRIPTION

Fallen is a collection of new poems by Pacific Northwest poet, Shannon P. Laws, her third book of poetry.  Fallen explores the trauma of loss, heartache, quiet eroticism, occasionally draped in dark humor and metaphor. This is reflective middle age work asking questions about a dark past, finding truth in the now, while confident how it all ends.

World Peace Poets presents

“Peace Poems: Featuring International Poets from British Columbia and the Pacific Northwest (Volume 1)”

Description

“World Peace Poets gathered poets together in the falls of 2013 and 2014 for a peace read-in as part of a worldwide Poetathon initiated by World Poetry Canada. Poets came from British Columbia, Seattle, Bellingham and beyond to speak up on peace for the world, each other and within.

This collection of writing reflects the many voices that opened our hearts and minds to the challenges of war and antagonisms. These poems release an understanding of peace that is deep within us. Lawrence Ferlinghetti suggests, “Poetry is a quiver on the skin of eternity.” Reading the words and rhythms of peace gathered here, we feel our skin prickle in the unrelenting movement toward quietude, mutual regard, and hope of a peaceful future for all of us.”

Description

The 2013 Mayor’s Arts Award recipient, poet, author and community radio personality, Shannon P. Laws, celebrates glory in the little things, the odd little things to be exact.

“Odd Little Things” is a familiar ride full of piercing moments and wishes. In this, her second book of poetry, Shannon bares all making you feel like best friends at a café sharing secrets. The cycles of life seem to spin like an unforgiving stellar system for this poet. However large or small, everything matters, especially the moments you only share with yourself. Shannon says about her new book, “If ‘Madrona Grove’ is my lover, then ‘Odd Little Things’ is my child.”

Description

Shannon P Laws takes us on a stroll through the mind, heart and the mystery of dreams in her debut collection. Her poems, like a fine picnic laid out on a blanket in the shade of her beloved Madrona, reveal treasures that hide in everyday living. This majestic tree, native to her home on San Juan Island, has a skin like bark, alive to the touch. They act as a sentry on her journey through ancient emotions and primal urges that stir within.
