POEMS, a thoughtful collection of pithy, original poetry, delivers insight from commonplace people, things and events. A hot bubbling pot of fudge evokes a moment in the kitchen, and the sweet, moment of interaction between mother and daughter. Brass winds its way to demonstrate that commodities of today have a broader affect on the world than just our own motives.

With a mock orange evening, the author pokes fun at herself while recalling the heady scent of mock orange, evoking world peace. Mary Ann Archibald is an award winning artist and writer in Nova Scotia. www.MaryAnn.ca
