With Nothing behind but Sky

A Journey Through Grief / Poems by Perie Longo

Perie Longo’s poems transport us from the spectrum of emotion: tragic and cathartic to funny and hilarious. She is a virtuoso in each form she chooses, carrying us with her, laughing and crying. 
Poems in Perie Longo’s book, With Nothing behind but Sky — a journey through grief, cover a nine year period from the diagnosis of her husband’s leukemia, through his treatment, death and beyond showing how time changes grief, and how the relationship of a husband and wife continues even after death, always there like the sky, which offers hope even when life seems darkest.

Charm School

Five Women of the Odyssey
A Poetic Drama in Five Parts by Randall J. VanderMey

In Charm School Homer’s Odyssey springs to life in comically witty, psychologically rich poetry full of epic resonance. The drama of Odysseus’ delayed home-coming from the Trojan War is told as encounters with five strong women: Circe, Calypso, Nausicaa, Athena, and Penelope. All the famed encounters are there, the Cyclops, the Lotus Eaters, the Clashing Rocks, the descent into the Underworld, but the real story here is one of seduction, faithfulness, devotion to duty, and the ultimate testing of love. Who is the hero: tardy Odysseus or long-suffering Penelope?

What a pleasure to ride the intelligence of this language.
