POEMS FROM WITHIN
David Hubbard and Marcie Wolf-Hubbard are currently working on a series of books of David's short stories and poems and Marcie's encaustic (hot wax) paintings, which have inspired David's writing. Poems from Within is the first book in the series.
"From Within" (The poem)
Suzanne waited within the space of the window
wondering when her world would spin mad as a hatter in winter wearing only skin
possibilities wriggling off in all directions waiting only for a single sound to free her
Port Colorado spread with ships painted crimson and cream
the royal sea stained brown and gold with scuds of drift weed
from a single horn a note resounds off the cliff behind the town
to break the spell that holds her there at the open window
down, down, taking flight like a wild bird free of bad dreams
THE SHINY SHELL
The Shiny Shell, a children’s adventure book about a boy and a dolphin on a mission to save the oceans. Starting from the perspective of L. Frank Baum and Rev. Dodgson (Lewis Carroll) The Shiny Shell takes our young adventurer Orion, on a journey “down the rabbit hole.” As his story unfolds your child is encouraged to learn. Knowledge is held up to be more important than the acquisition of wealth. The dire consequences of pollution and global warming are exposed and the perspective of non-human species are explored. Through all of this the values of friendship and family are uplifted. In every good adventure there are antagonists and conflict, but as in any reasonable fable, good triumphs over evil in the end.
Bring your child along on this fast paced adventure and you will be as involved in the story as they are.
