Joanna Nealon’s Sixth book moves grippingly through three parts: first, dismal misery; then, vigorous but premature attacks to free the self from its pain; and lastly a haunting and original image to celebrate a new human capacity, the thinking heart, “The heart is the lens/ For the real Sky, / Not the touted telescope” the final poem begins. It ends showing that cosmic beings look “long and deeply” through the lens, “Waiting, waiting, / For the heart to see.” Nealon’s surprising last line both closes her brilliant book and arouses readers and hearers to expect the heart/lens to see.

Her new and bold image may be rich in meaning from a poet who has been blind since she was nineteen, decades ago.

Poems of the Zodiac Cover

Poems of the Zodiac "Sirius" Fun
by
Joanna Nealon Published by IN Publications

Price: $12.00. Order through Paypal where you may use your credit card or your PayPal account.

Readers who have a feeling for astrology will find the poems in this collection lively, charming, and perspicacious! Joanna Nealon has written two Sunsign poems for each of the twelve constellations, one, a dignified archetype, and the other, a humorous stereotype. Though the sub-title of the book is "Sirius" Fun, suggesting a light-hearted approach, the poems are set against the shimmering backdrop of a meaningful cosmos. "Astrology is an echo of an ancient high wisdom, the divining of super-sensible realities which underlie the universe." This wisdom indicates that horoscopes are not imposed on us from without, but that we choose them before our birth, as an expression of who we are at any given stage of our evolution. In short, a Ram wants to be a Ram!

Living It Cover

Living It

Price: $10.00. Order through Paypal where you may use your credit card or your PayPal account.

"Living It is a spellbinding chronicle of an extraordinary life. In her account of growing up on a houseboat...then overcoming a tremendous challenge and founding a loving family of her own, Joanna Nealon speaks with a clear, musical, and authoritative voice. She can't be classified as a blind poet; she is a born poet, who exchanged ordinary eyesight for a different kind of vision, on more illuminating. I haven't read autobiographical poems this stark, harrowing, and memorable since Robert Lowell's Life Studies and Anne Sexton's to Bedlam and Part Way Back."

The Weight of Dreams

The Weight of Dreams is a full length poetry manuscript that deals primarily with the theme of dreams and how they inform us from a conscious and unconscious perspective. It is intended for readers who are intrigued by how dreams play an important role in shaping our understanding of not only ourselves, but of our reality.

The first part of the book is a long sequence poem entitled "The Weight of Dreams" which examines the romantic aspect of love and focuses on emotions resulting from loss and longing. The second part of the book consists of individual poems that deal with dreams and other issues. Many of the poems in the book have been previously published in literary journals/magazines and websites. Some have won awards and honourable mentions in contests sponsored by the Scarborough Arts Council, The Canadian Authors Association, and The Ontario Poetry Society.

It is my sincere hope that The Weight of Dreams will not only help readers to discover truths about themselves, but develop a greater appreciation for poetry and the role it plays in shaping our lives.

Soul Estates Cover

Soul Estates

Jiri Jirasek

In this moving collection, "SOUL ESTATES", the intense Czech poet, Jiri Jirasek, invites the reader to enter four different and deeply personal soul domains.

Part 1, Fawn Interludes, is a country of flowering meadows and whispering streams, an ideal setting for the delicate awakening of the senses and the first flush of young passion.

In sharp contrast Part 2, Collateral Love, is a desolate habitat, a drab sweep of moorland, a place of solitary brooding and regret.

In Part 3, Subtle Fires, one could imagine a lush tropical island, a playground for the unrestrained freedom of mature sexuality and complex passion, striving towards love.

Part 4, Soul Asymptotes, moves to another realm, the heights and depths of the soul in a cosmos of elusive meaning.
The key to understanding this last section is in its title,
an "asymptote" in math being a line or curve closely approaching another line, but never touching it as they go to infinity. In the language of this poet, wisdom and love are soul asymptotes that never attain fulfillment.
