Hi everyone. I would like to share with you one of my favorite poets. Linda M. Crate is a prolific poet, and writer of fantasy. What I love is how empowering her words can be. Linda writes on subjects like sexual assault, suicide, and relationships, entwining them in ethereal, nature themes.

My thoughts on Small Stones from the River by Kat Lehmann ( @songsofkat )

  • Publisher Createspace.com
  • Release Date 29th June 2017
  • Average Rating 4.2 / 5 🌟

Available on KU

The_Book_Depository.


Lehmann describes the writing in her book as meditations and micropoems. They seem made for fridge magnets, bookmarks, and greeting cards. In a world that seems increasingly cruel, inhumane, and barbaric Small Stones from the River is encouraging, thought provoking, and inspiring.

The limitations
I place
On the dreams
Of others
Are the same limitations
I place
On myself

One that I personally believe in

Your legacy
is your love

that’s the best thing you do

If ever you needed some word medicine I believe Lehmann’s words, if you truly try to believe in them, will help heal you.

This one:

if you feel
your heart
is eager to rain
bring it a gift
of sunshine instead
and marvel
at the glorious colours
it makes

made me think of the beauty of the rainbow patterns on rained on concrete when the sun comes out.

make a certain peace
with stagnation

ask it to tea
and stare patiently at one another

when it is time to get up
both of you
will know
