CANARIES

gas continues choking

casualties
like lab rats or

canaries in a coal mine…

next time, there won’t be
a next time

we remember

Aurora,
Sandyhook,
Manchester,

stray bullets in
an endless narrative.

Sleeping With Earth by Ben Ditmars #review @benditty

imageWhen Ben told me he was coming out with a new book I couldn’t wait to read it. I’ve read all of Ben’s poetry and story books, this one is worth the waiting. It’s about the world and the people of today. Drugs, murder, suicide, love and the worlds problems. I loved the story poem, “The Nights End”. Ben also collaborated with a few authors, a sweet surprise. Ford Forkum(love his work) and Susie Clevenger, another great poet. Take the time and download this awesome poetry book.

I only have a photo for the cover, I’m not a writer: This is my review:

Imagine a book when you look at a picture and your imagination runs wild with stories about what you see. That’s this series! Awesome photography, poems and stories written by several superior authors! I’ve read every book in this series, each one had new authors to get to know. There’s weird stories that make your mind think. Sci-fi that’ll show a glimpse into the authors mind, down right chilling stories, don’t forget the amazing poetry by two amazing poets, the photography that inspired these stories. You really should try one of these books, their worth the money and totally worth your time. This is one of my favorite books in this series. I think it makes a good Halloween read.

Poetry by The Midnight Writer Aka Ben Ditmars

I have often wondered what tears look like
underneath a microscope, until I saw
how tears of grief were not glass shards,
those of hope did not skip like stones
or dance as I imagined tears of laughter,
flowing past a nonexistent bridge
composed of crying for the souls
we can’t replace.

Different imaginations: TRIPTYCHS ( Book three in The Minds Eye Series). Thirteen different authors! #share

TRIPTYCHS ( minds eyes series book three)
I love this series! Every time I open a new book from this series I’m thrilled because I know I’m about to read from new authors and ones I already love. I see some beautiful photography and read meaningful poetry. The stories are different from one another, different styles, dark, romance, mystical and the poems are mind blowing. There are 13 authors, photographers in this book, each story meticulously written for your reading pleasure, “pleasure “you will get from this book. There are short stories, some longer ones, I loved each one, I loved everything about this book. It’s hard to have a favorite when there’s such great authors, you’ll have to read it to see what I mean. I know I found new authors in this series, you will to. Whoever came up with this concept is genius! So much talent in this series. They keep it fresh by adding new authors to every book.
