My thanks goes out to Poetic Geng (on Twitter: @poeticgeng) for featuring my poem "Old Into New" last month for World Poetry Day! You can view my art and poem below.
I was thrilled to receive the following review on amazon.co.uk from Mr. Roger Hare:
"Vision, And Other Things We Hide From" is a beautifully produced volume by the American poet, Samantha L Terrell. Many of these poems are just what we need emerging from a crisis - they encourage an attitude of being hopeful; mercifully, not with false-glee or by-passing our less attractive tendencies, but with a direction to believe in ourselves. Samantha writes in support of a straight-up, in your face self-honesty, but one that's coupled to self-compassion. Her poems ask us to reach for the best 'us' we can be......, safe in the knowledge that if we fall short, and fall often, we'll not be disqualified!
Individual poems that lit up my reading included some written to include perspectives from childhood, science and the anxsts of being an adult; First Existential Crisis is one of my favourite poems of the last 12 months."
for your interest in
