Ruth Marcus, Michael Medler, Terry Moore and Stephanie Nead. These poets meet on the Last Wednesday of the month to encourage and support each other as poets. You will enjoy this diverse collection of poems.  
Ruth Marcus inspires readers with her
imagistic poetry and hand-drawn mandalas.
This casebound collector’s edition is a lush
journey into ancient-art-cum modern.
The sound of frogs and crows rise from
the page. Freshly fallen snow and baked
bread tickle your senses. From ice fishing
to meditation, this collection is an exceptional
and original wedding of two ancient arts—
haiku and mandala.
