Meet poets, Noor and Williamson: Complexity and Grace for aaduna's upcoming winter/spring issue!

Poet, Noorulain Noor  (photo provided)
There is a detached elegance regarding Noorulain Noor’s work.  Her pieces titter on elegance and simplicity with rich layers of hued emotional context and vivid portrayals. Here are brief excerpts from her work in the winter/spring 2014 issue:

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….

from Atonement

…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
in mid-air.
spoken word
poetry has lifted callow bricks,
brick red
dead roads
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.
