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.

My book Poems for the Day is a compilation of Poems written at a deeply tormented time of my life. I wrote my first poems when I was on a houseboat at Smiths Creek on Hawkesbury River in N.S.W. a time that seemed to pull the Poems out of me. That was in 2007, when I wrote my first Poetry, only about six Poems in all, I have included some of them in my book for you to read. Then no more Poems until the Christmas of 2010. From Christmas 2010 through 2011, I wrote poems like Mad Woman they just poured out of me, like a waterfall, and no one was more surprised than me! A very faith filled, anxiety laced time, and at this point space doesnt permit me to go in too. Sufficient to day, writing Poetry was a very comforting pass time for me, and being a big fan and student of William Shakespeare, Poetry has always held a Special Place in my Heart right from my Grade six reader, where I discovered My Country by Dorothy McKellar. It is my hope that whoever reads my poetry will be warmed inside out of by my Poems. Poems like When someone you love is sick will help you to understand where I was coming from at a very difficult and creative time in my life. Thank you for sharing my experience, for you makes it all worthwhile!

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

Gone are the days of swords and shields, knights and paladins. But warriors still walk among us. Their strength and grace is as effective in dealing with today's challenges as it was in olden times. Their intensity and resolve can be applied to every task in our day to day lives, from work to working out. Their patience and focus are essential to living a stress-free life. Their courage and fortitude allow us to seek success and happiness, not simply wait for it as so many others do. Their selflessness and love reveals to us the greatest purpose in life: service to others. Their balance and peace ensures that nothing will ever shake any of our other virtues. All of these elements combine to form the greatest inspirational tool of all: wisdom. Peace + strength + grace + intensity + resolve + patience + fortitude + selflessness + focus + balance + courage + love = wisdom

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.
