I dream about the friends with whom I'll grow old, I dream about the person whose hands I'll hold, I dream about being young and in love, I dream about loved ones, looking down from above. I dream of the places I'll one day see, I dream of being wild and free, I dream of my house, high on the rocks, I dream of the sand underneath my socks. I dream of the people I'd love to greet, I dream of the things I'll say when we meet, I dream of hearing their voices sing, I dream of being happy with everything.
I dream of travelling with a map in my hand, I dream of never coming back to this land, I dream of finding myself - in sense I dream of jumping far off this fence. I dream of any things that one day I'll know, I dream of the freedom: Kelly writes of her work: The ability to do this is a small compensation for the loss of haring in one ear.

This book is far more than a slim collection of poems. It is an anthology of poetry, essays, photos and valuable links to on-line videos and audio recordings. The book shows us another world of literature that needs further exploring. It is an exceptional piece of work for the poems are well-crafted, informative, intelligent, heart-rendering, angry, happy and sad. It is a remarkable collection written by known and less-known voices but all voices certainly deserve to be heard.
Congratulations to the editors and Nine Arches Press for taking on this fine work and bringing it to the attention of us all. Log in to Reply.
