Book Review “The Contract: between heaven and earth,” John W. Howell, Gwen M. Plano

“Like flowers we grow, bloom, and whither – each day and each life. But although we blossom more grandiose in each new life, all our lives are perfect in their own way.” Stefan Emunds Unpredictable Mysterious Intriguing On the surface it looks like the usual thriller, but if you look deeper inside, you’ll find a kick-ass paranormal fantasy.

A cloudless spring day. This is what I feel when I think about...

Why do some young kids dislike poetry? Why do so many people unsatisfied with modern poetry? When Marianne Moore wrote a poem titled “Poetry,” she began it with the words: “I, too, dislike it.” Making a poem was never quite...
