This book, A PRAYER AS A POEM FOR EACH DAY, gives everyone a spiritual connection with the lifeline of God. Although these poems seem to be primarily for the Christian but you will find that much of the meaning of the words concentrate on the individual as being compassionate and doing the right thing in this world relationship with one and another. The rhyming of the words is like a musical background. Some of the poems help the reader to cope with the hurts and torments of their inner self and understanding the pains of their fellowman. It is prudent that we fundamentally deal with one day at a time to simplify our lives and we should pray daily. This book will be an excellent guideline. Each poem is a story emphasizing the virtues of goodness as tools to resolve problems and to find peace in the spiritual world. I'm Richard A. Dixon, author of this book, A PRAYER AS A POEM FOR EACH DAY, and in this AUTHOR BIO it will give you a genuine insight of a perfect example of a compassionate heart that was initiated by an early foundation of living in a Christian atmosphere with my Grandparents. My religion is my driving force. I have formally written three other books as a series of Spiritual poems. My Bachelor of Science has also helped me in my current writing endeavor. My conclusion is a poetic reminder: This book is not just to read for a day or a week or a month or even a year, this is for a lifetime to build your character and to bring your heart spiritual cheer. PRAY EVERYDAY OF YOUR LIFE TO CONFRONT THE WORLD OF SIN PRAY AND ACQUIRE HOPE AND DIRECTION PRAY AND LIVE UNTIL THE END.

Writing can be learned but can't be taught. What can be taught is how to read as a writer and how to use what that tells us in our own writing. By reading in this way we will put our hand on Leo Tolstoy's, Ernest Hemingway's, Flannery O'Connor's, and others' as they create in order to discover what they did to make us believe in the worlds that explode out of their pages, worlds that conjured in us the passion that brought us to our own attempt at the art of writing. Creative writing teacher and author Christopher Davis discusses the craft of the best writers in order to understand how they did their work, helps students to become good writers by finding the right way to read, and encourages good teachers to be better shepherds. Brilliant and inspirational, Working Words is a must for every student and teacher of writing. "The artistry of novelist Christopher Davis is one of the secrets of contemporary fiction."-Don Gold, Chicago Sun-Times

It's easy to make one, lying on your back in the newest snow. you move your arms like wings. Later you forget about your creation, go inside for a mug of hot chocolate. That's when she rises from the snow takes a feathery breath, tries out her wings. So begins a poem about making a snow angel, but it might also refer to the mysterious way that a poem comes into being and takes on a life of its own. In this new collection, Ralph Fletcher shows us how you can write a poem about almost anything: a baby sister, a Venus's-flytrap, a failing grandmother, a squished squirrel, grammar homework, and more. These poems take us inside the creative process as they reveal both the playfulness and the power of poetry. More than anything, they invite us to pick up pen and paper and write some poems of your own.

„Ängstlich in das Dunkel starrend blieb ich stehn, verwundert, harrend ...“ „Der Rabe“ brachte Edgar Allan Poe den Durchbruch als Lyriker. Sein bekanntestes Gedicht zählt bis heute zum unvergänglichen Erbe der Dichtkunst. In 108 Versen schildert er den mitternächtlichen Besuch eines Raben bei einem Verzweifelten, dessen Geliebte Lenore starb. Die erste deutsche Übersetzung von Elise von Hohenhausen findet sich hier neu interpretiert und illustriert von Marta Monika Czerwinski. Der Name steht für schaurige und düstere Abgründe: Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) gilt als Wegbereiter des Symbolismus und Meister des subtilen Horrors. Poes Gedichte, Erzählungen und Kurzgeschichten zählen zu den großen Werken seiner Zeit.
