He kept painting ... Dancing on waves / exultant as migratory birds
not staying in the nests / they had created, leaving behind
salt on the waves.
—Diane Marquart Moore, Author of Ridges

July, 2021: New York Tableaux Poems and Art by Valentí Gómez-Oliver, Bilingual Catalan-English Edition, Translation by Keith and Amanda Adams

Poems and refrains punctuated along a moving sidewalk space-time mural of New York City. Rhythmic clamor embedded in the strokes and colors of the accompanying artwork. The engaging English translation complete with rhyme and alliteration. With a downbeat of “Earthy sewer fumes” the dance begins, to lace together earth and sky, solid and vapor. Enter the metro of mysticisms, opening to tender human truths. Writers and musicians; dreams and imagination; a collective creative force harnesses survival.

July, 2021: Mirrors Poems by TWIXT

Mirrors progresses seamlessly along explorations of the physics and concepts of perspective; the sensual and visual; sound and words; motion and rest. Clouds enter; creeks enter; streams swell, the force of water grows—to an epistemological crescendo. Observing from far space and then easing to earth—following rivers of experience and then diving into the individual. Concise meditations to challenge and liberate.

August, 2021: Sundown at Faith Regional Poems by Barbara Schmitz

Barbara Schmitz offers Heart Medicine which “drops the pain body”—an invitation to let go to the rhythms of her love songs to life. Death and childhood; memory and forgetting; family cacophonies and inventions. Acceptance, like ‘the indifference cloak,’ creates a liberating energy. “The wings to the heart the Sufis say / are independence / and indifference,’ and the sense of humor at our failings becomes the success. Laced with “beauty, the lyrical pain,” we drink an elixir of laughter and tears.

October, 2021: Off Topic Poems by Grant Quackenbush

Intricately sculpted poems of modern life from New York City to Southern California—propelled with a sense of urgency bordering on a vein of chaos that flashes with crystalline precision of language.

Reading Off Topic is like the expanding moment of stillness in our perception of time as a rollercoaster free-falls: embedded in the carnival is a mature and lasting exploration of self, poetry, art, and relationship.
