Without Roof

Poems

" Without Roof focuses on loss and separation, but it celebrates courage and risk."-Karla Hammond ". . . Using existing myths or images from the natural world, she makes new fables on the experience of being a woman and a poet, on her Jewish heritage, and on uncovering the meaning of history."- The Virginia Quarterly Review ". . . With economy and composure she describes things as they are: a fine love goes emotionally bankrupt; a woman's body withers and grows past childbearing; the wildflowers sometimes conceal bat caves and minefields."- Choice

The Illustrated Rumi

A Treasury of Wisdom from the Poet of the Soul

The bestselling poet in America today, thirteenth-century Sufi mystic Jalalu'ddin Rumi has inspired and enlightened thousands with his playful, passionate work celebrating the sacred in everyday life. Now the spiritual wealth of Rumi's stories and poetry in translation are accompanied by rare and wonderful art in the Sufi tradition. This fresh rendering brings new life to these incomparable parables, which have transcended time, place, culture, and religion to speak directly to the hearts and souls of contemporary readers. With a foreword by Huston Smith, these selections of the inimitable mystic's prose and poetry have been taken from all of the master's works. Each parable, such as The King and the Handmaiden, The Grocer and the Parrot, The Ugly Old Woman, and The Man Who Was Always Being Swindled, is related as Rumi might have presented it to his fascinated audiences, as he whirled in meditation and trance. But each story also has a spiritual message, a holy essence that applies across all faiths, uttered from the heart of Islam. Each of these messages is provided here in a modern rendering that keeps the flavor of this unique period of history, of culture, and of inspired, passionate beauty.

Three Some Poems

"Jeannine Dobbs's poetry begins in a bleak, pinched childhood-details remembered without bitterness, but remembered-and out of it she works toward a quiet, attentive joy far more convincing than angry proclamation."-Rosellen Brown "Gensler's poems, remarkable because they do not focus solely on the self, are open to the objects, animals and places they describe."- Choice "Elizabeth Knies writes with lyrical poise and transparency. In some of the finest poems she approaches the brave and effortless clarity we associate with the ancient Chinese poets. These are generous poems, the eye prized always on the immediate and therefore on what is genuine-and always searching."-Patricia Hampl
