Conversations’ 10 Best Poetry Books For 2012

by Cyrus Webb 

As someone who appreciates the power of the written word, I am always looking for others who are putting pen to paper and giving the world something great through prose. I might not always agree with what is being said, but I can appreciate the skills and the gift that the author had.

 

Since April is National Poetry Month, Conversations Book Club and Conversations Magazine wanted to present its choices for best poetry books 2012to add to your collection this year: Looking Into Your Voice by Cathie Borrie (Nightwing Press)

As this book is a compilation of recorded conversations I had with my mother when she had dementia, all accolades goes to JOAN BORRIE. Thank you, Mum, for showing me your astonishing poetic voice in the midst of all your struggles.
