Be you, Be now

i can’t wrap my head around you

any more than i can understand the

public posturing

of pompous politicians

who gloss over the issues

with ads about their opponents fallibility and hairline

don’t you understand that pocketing watches

does not save you time?

anymore than keeping up with the Jones(s)

or the Kardashians (as the case may be)

will ever make you Happy.

Always waiting, planning for the future

some day, one day….

as life passes you by.

Be you, be now!

What are you waiting for?

Death and Life by B.G. Bowers– My review

Hi All:)

I was happy to share Bianca’s  announcement a couple months ago about  the publication of her first poetry book, Death and Life.   Well, I have had a copy of her beautiful book in my hands for awhile now and recently put the following brief review on Amazon and Goodreads.  I thought I should share it here with you as well.

“I hunger for poetry that stirs my soul. To me good poetry is all about expression, emotion and imagery. This is good poetry.

I’ve not only read Death and Life, I lived with it, savored it. This feast of emotion and imagery deserves more than a quick sampling.B.G. Bowers shares her journey with such honesty that one cannot help but be in the moment with her. I suffered her loss, heartbreak and anguish and was rewarded with liberation, self-reflection and love.”

All the details are below if you haven’t yet picked it up.

AVAILABLE NOW:

Dath-and-life-front

➤ The print copy is available on CREATESPACE or AMAZON

➤ The Kindle version is available on AMAZON

“Death is the great disruptor; it thrusts us opposite life’s mirror, invites our truthful exploration, and reveals the naked truth; from which rebirth is possible and we are free to reinvent ourselves anew.”

In Death and Life, B.G. Bowers examines an eclectic life journey, masterfully illustrating various psychological, emotional, and spiritual experiences through poetry and essays. Death is not isolated to physical loss, but encompasses figurative deaths arising from innocence lost, depression, unfulfilled dreams, lost love, exile, spiritual death and rejection of childhood paradigms. Fortunately, these mini-deaths present opportunity for growth, evolution and renewal. That is to say, from death comes life.
