Meet poets, Noor and Williamson: Complexity and Grace for aaduna's upcoming winter/spring issue!
|Poet, Noorulain Noor (photo provided)|
from Holiday House
She traced circles on her palm as she told
us the stories of her youth and the fold
in the fabric of history that broke
a nation, birthed two, and many a folk-
tale of love and triumph, battle and loss,
and back to the time she walked across
an intangible border in the land,
the signature of a powerful hand….
…Maybe I would find you then
on an indistinguishable road of this metropolis,
see you from afar and recognize
your eyes and the wrinkle between them,
the one I sewed and kissed and loved. But,
in the clamor of people and their voices,
will you hear me when I call your name?...
Read Noor's complete works plus Weatherman in our next issue.
|Dr. Ernest Williamson III, PhD|
Ernest Williamson III, PhD dares to be different with a seasoned poetic voice that articulates passion, triumph and crystallizes the human spirit. His work engages and invites reflection and discussion. Here are a few excerpts from his work:
from Peeling Gray Apples
acid from my eyes
melts the snow.
hemlock and bonfires erupt
poetry has lifted callow bricks,
leading to what we reap;
from Rant of an Old Wiccan Lady
mention me in love;
after you make love to the silhouette of my dress.
hint with husk after these maroon breasts
may the maiden milk you tasted as a child
bring you under the callow lament of my professed niceties.
my thighs are yours and mine….
Read his complete work plus Danielle’s Denial…coming soon.
