Description : The Pebble Poems is a fantasy trip through drought, like the one we find ourselves embedded in today; this trip makes things concrete, simple and conspicuous, it takes us from the edges of consolation and timid frailty into the boundaries of the decision-making process. Mind you, all this is not as cemented as we would like for, as the poems themselves 'tell us', most of these things are too easily said and done. This is a push for, and not against, love. Granted, setting the world on fire in this day and age is a crazy notion, a crazy business, but somebody's got to do it; and this should fall to each and everyone of us. These poems are personal nuggets, if you will, pebbles of the mind, settled pieces (or not) to travel by; the 'pebble' in the title of the book hails back to those cobblestone roads of ages past. Let us say that what was said was unsaid; Let us seek its trail through a dusty road in the Allegheny wood, And learn from its vibrant edginess; Tantalizing is the view, muffled in greatness, In momentary stratospheric turmoil bound and held..., Excerpt from the poem "Where is the elemental say of the thing in the thing said'..".

Description : Collecting the best of Mairi Maclnnes's previous work -- including her breakthrough poem "I Object, Said the Object" -- along with new poems, The Pebble reflects years of quandary and conflict at home and abroad as the poet imposes on them the order of poetry. This volume concludes with her essay "Why Poetry", on the clash between obligations and rights through which imagination must make its way. A native of England and of Highland Scots descent, who spent nearly thirty years in the United States, Maclnnes looks afresh at what a changing perspective brings. Hers is a poetry of estrangement, loss, madness, reprieve, stalemate, and reconciliation. The bonds between person and place, parent and child, traveler and homeland, are called into question. Maclnnes draws our gaze to the crack in the foundation, the friction within an ordinary exchange, the shifting of ground beneath a familiar landscape, the long step between a museum of art and the slums outside.

A pebble too was made with the elements of nature, each one having its own story, just like how a poem is created out of inspirations from nature or love, or the destruction of both. Poems are written on different subjects - being, love, loss, nature, mysticism, and wanderlust. The poet writes lucidly and vividly. A life longing for beauty and enchantment can be seen in these poems. Written on a journey of self-discovery through poetry, it takes you out of the material world in search of a life beyond the mundane to magic. Pebbles on the Beach, is a collection of poems straight from the heart.
Description : The death of Michael Donaghy in 2004 at the age of fifty robbed poetry of one of its best-loved and most naturally gifted practitioners. A modern metaphysical, Donaghy wrote poetry of great wisdom, grace, charm, erudition and consummate technical accomplishment. This book gathers together all of Donaghy's mature poetry, and includes the full texts of his four published volumes, as well as a number of fine uncollected pieces. As the poet-critic Sean O'Brien has remarked, Donaghy will come to be seen as one of the representative poets of the age.
