Orpheus Is Bleeding PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Orpheus Is Bleeding free pdf You will not find within these pages a haiku to inspire visions of a silkworm caught in a moment of introspection. This is not that kind of poetry collection. Instead in these pages you will find feelings and ideas which are stark, raw and honest . . . slices of life plucked from experiences both lived and imagined. Some are terrifyingly disturbing while others light-hearted and serene. If you dare to read forward and you are bravely open, you will begin a strange and magnificent journey through places in your mind and heart you might not have otherwise tread. Having been advised, should you feel ready then read on. Be prepared to enter the mind of a murderous stalker as he tracks his next victim. Witness the darkness of a diabolical, old woman whose reaction to interruption is harsh and extreme . . . then be carried away to a time of youth in a nearly forgotten yesterday and taste the sweet strawberries of a long lost springtime. These are poems about moments and what they hold whether they contain triumph, sorrow, happiness or loss. You will touch the face of loneliness, stare into the gaping maw of mental illness and addiction, perhaps learn a little about love, understand the sunshine in a new way as it spreads across a cold and frozen morning, and maybe even hear the voice of God. Thank you for sharing these moments with me and now let us begin this journey together.

About Don J Baldwin Jr

Born Donald Joe Baldwin Jr. in Pontiac, MI on June 27th, 1967, the son of Barbara Lee Baker of Marshall, MO and Donald Joe Baldwin of Bono, AR. After his parents divorced at the age of two his mother returned to Missouri and married Carl Henry Stone. Donald spent most of his early youth on the gently rolling flood plains of the Blackwater and Missouri Rivers just outside Pilot Grove, MO. The beautiful sprawling corn and wheat fields of central Missouri's farm belt provide the backdrop for the poem titled: For Cara and Amy Renee. At age 8, after the death of his step-father, life abruptly changed. Donald and his family relocated to Marshall, MO where he continued to live and attend school until his graduation from Marshall High School with the class of 1985. Affectionately known as "Joe" or "Donnie" by his friends and family. He currently resides in Seattle, WA where he continues to find inspiration. This is Donald's first published work. He is currently working on a series of children's books about a determined, strong-willed seven year-old tom-girl named Imogene Hurley. The character of Imogene is a composite of his younger sister Cara, step-sister Rose Wells, and Harper Lee's courageous character of Scout from To Kill A Mockingbird.
