Ericka Davis Shares Life Lessons through Poetry in New Book

coverEDavis

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Through Mine Eyes: Life’s Lessons Are Meant To Be Shared” by Ericka Davis.

A teacher – and poet – writes about the life experiences from the perspective of a young girl in this new collection of poetry released by Dog Ear Publishing.

Personal experiences shape and change lives, whether for the better or for the worse. This new book of poetry shares experiences and impressions as seen through the eyes of a young girl. With her rhythmic verse, author Ericka Davis offers stories that focus on values ranging from heartbreak and sensuality to challenges, spirituality and love. These memorable moments become the stepping stones that allowed her to reach life goals.

In “Through Mine Eyes: Life’s Lessons Are Meant To Be Shared,” Davis, a woman of faith, provides gentle lessons that offer guidance and reflection. The poem “Fill My Cup” describes things that would make life better:  “Fill my cup with love, hugs, kisses, family, pictures, and memorable events. Fill my cup with humor; playing, laughing and an irreplaceable good feeling that I can hold on to and grasp when I need just a touch.” In “Seasons,” Davis describes a patient teacher: “You are springtime, which nurtures new green sprouts. You encourage and lead everyone, whenever they have doubts.”

The poem “Bold & Beautiful” offers words of encouragement: “How dare you have a passion for life, a passion for people, a passion to do God’s work and worship in the steeple. … Don’t stop now, you are just getting started. We don’t want you to be the deeply departed. We applaud and admire your courage and statue.” The author’s passion for her message comes through clearly. She writes, “There is nothing more precious than preserving memories that mean the most, that inspire, that encourage.”

Author Ericka Davis, a native of Louisiana with a bachelor’s degree and graduate degree in Communications/Broadcast Journalism from Southern University, has been writing poetry for years. The educator, who has a master’s degree in Adult Education and Distance Learning from the University of Phoenix, lives in Tulsa with her family. She and her husband Jody lived in Houston for more than 13 years before moving to Tulsa.

Poems Provide Release for Bi-Polar Author Tom Sebell

coverSebell

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Bi-Polar Poems” by Tom Sebell.

A bi-polar poet shares his thoughts on the world and his life in this new poetry collection released by Dog Ear Publishing.

Writing allows people to express themselves, and people with a lot on their mind are no exception. The author of this new book of poetry, who is bi-polar, writes poems as a way to relax and let out some of the dark thoughts he has in the world, which he sees in stark black and white – not shades of gray. Although he could sink to the depths of despair, given his choice to laugh or cry, he chooses to laugh and provide insight into a world of his making.

“Bi-Polar Poems” shows other sufferers of this condition that they are not alone. Author Tom Sebell lets his sense of humor shine like a beacon of light in the darkness. As he writes in one short selection, “If I took an IQ test, the results would say buy him a helmet.” Another poem pokes fun of the long-standing nature of his illness: “When I was little I was so screwed up even the little bus rode by me and waved.” But Sebell can be serious as well, such as a poem in which he describes the isolation he sometimes feels: “Most people could not handle our bi-polar mind, none the less deal with our bi-polar world.”

Author Tom Sebell, who has been diagnosed as bi-polar, is married and has a son. He lives in Pennsville, N.J. Sebell credits his family and friends for helping him make it through life.

New Poetry Collection by Vasile Munteanu Celebrates Wonder of Books

coverMunteanuA poet pays tribute to books in all forms – truly human creations – in this new book released by Dog Ear Publishing.

Communicating through books is an idea that separates humanity from everything else in nature. Although other species can feel emotion, use tools and have sophisticated methods of communication and social structures, only people write things down. That’s the idea the author honors with new volume of poetry celebrating books and all of their diversity.

“The Book of Books” features 100 poems by Vasile Munteanu, who also has written several other volumes of poetry. The selection “Book 24” offers a glimpse of classic writers: “A ploy with Tolstoy, got corky with Gorsky, got pesky with Dostoyevsky.” In the poem “Book 50,” Munteanu explores the emotions the written word can evoke: “I see two three, or more three four, a page with age, a page of rage, dear sage turn page … A muse to amuse, a muse to abuse, a muse you lose.” Profound in their simplicity, the poems reveal a whole other world seen through the lens of books.

Author Vasile Munteanu came to the United States from Bucharest, Romania, as a teenager. He has taught literature and philosophy at the College of Southern Nevada in Las Vegas. He earned degrees in English from Oakland University in Michigan and a Ph.D. in Philosophy, Interpretation and Culture from State University of New York at Binghamton. Munteanu has written more than 11 books of fiction, poetry and philosophy, including “Godmaker,” “Chandala,” “The Book of Longing” and “The Book of Aloneness.”
