Whisper of Splendor brings about 60 poems from the author to demonstrate his poetic ideals and art. In the book, the reader notes the persona's propensity to take away the tangled web of meanings that packs his consciousness, so that he can take in things as they are, as they move. Declining to translate things from outside and thereon to construct their complicated meanings, Chong now relies on his intense vision in crafting a new poetry. He has become a realist of vision. The mind's eye--the inner waves--transports him to tomorrow morning, where the heart dawns and Time blossoms full, despite the ills of the modern world. Interlaced with aesthetic quest, philosophical knowledge, longing for robust humanity, his poems are poignantly beautiful, visionary and often--humorous. Chong Hyon-Jong was born in Seoul, Korea, in 1939, graduated from Yonsei University with a major in philosophy, and made his debut as a poet through "Hyondae Munhak" in 1965. His poetry books include The Dream of Things, Call Me Mr. Star, Like a Ball Bouncing upon Falling, Not Much Time to Love, A Flower, The World's Trees, Thirst as Well as a Fountain, and Can't Bear It. He also translated several literary books into Korean. Cho Young-Shil is the translator of three Korean poetry collections: One Day, Then Another by Kim Kwang-Kyu (White Pine Press, 2013), A Warm Family by Kim Hu-Ran (Codhill Press, 2014), A Lion at Three in the Morning by Nam Jin-Woo (Homa & Sekey Books, 2017). She wrote Flowers Going to Seeds, a book of poems in memoriam of her mother (1908-2001), and in her spare time writes poems for young adults.

With a blend of Wordsworthian poetry style and contemporary American poetic voice, Ken Allan Dronsfield wonderfully weaves human emotions, mysticism and Nature’s beauty as well as its harshness in his poetry. Zephyr’s Whisper will undoubtedly keep on maintaining the balance of soft soothing waltz and strong challenging winds like effects on the hearts and souls of avid poetry readers of all generations Vatsala Radhakeesoon (Mauritian author/poet) An American Mihai Eminescu, Ken Allan Dronsfield always tugged at my heart. His poems are suggestive, imagistic and lined with subtle emotion. Reading this collection of poems, I did have the feeling that the Zephyr was whispering at me. Roxana Nastase (Romanian/Canadian writer/poet/editor) Whispers from the Zephyr Sugar cane flowing like ocean waves Florida winds blow as egret’s hunt lunch tapestry woven in a wildness of saw grass buzzards perch high on branches of oak dragonflies rest on blades of palmetto unscrupulous clouds build to a zephyr horizontal rains pelt all within the glades saunters by quickly; sun now reappears. Spanish moss drips from Cypress trees curtains of humidity hold a damp grip songbirds fluttering, the gators cruising; in the great Florida swamp; days roll by; a muskrat swims in the calming waters a pinkish haze envelops the twilight sky Great Blue Herons stand at stoic repose; Listen to the whispers from the zephyr.
The shocking true crime story of a beloved Hollywood star gone too soon—told by the captain of the boat on which Natalie Wood spent her last night. Goodbye Natalie, Goodbye Splendour is the long‐awaited, detailed account of events that led to the mysterious death of Hollywood legend Natalie Wood off the coast of Catalina Island on November 28, 1981. It is a story told by a haunted witness to that fateful evening: Dennis Davern, the young captain of Splendour, the yacht belonging to Wood and husband Robert Wagner. Davern initially backed up Wagner’s version of that evening’s events through a signed statement prepared by attorneys. But Davern’s guilt over failing Natalie tormented him. Davern reached out to his old friend Marti Rulli, and little by little, at his own emotional pace, he revealed the details of his years in Wood’s employ, of the fateful weekend that Natalie died, and of the events following her death that prevented him from telling the whole story—until now.
Professor Mitchell Cameron was quite content existing as he was, numb, uncaring, and uninvolved. He had given up on anything that might awaken his senses, except for Jessie he believed in Jessie. He loved her. But Jessie's view of life was quite different from his she cared too much about everything, which is too much for anyone. In the end, she felt so empty from trying so hard, it finally killed her. Now all Mitchell had left was his loss. He felt no rage or disgust, just numb until that one day. He walked into the woods, as he had many times before, but this time things were very different. He was led to what so many, including myself, had assumed didn't exist: the Forest. The place where creatures discuss all kinds of matters like life, love, hate, war, peace, abuse, murder, punishment, goodness, happiness, grief, marriage, trust, faith, and on and on. Everyone in the Forest, young and old, is fully alive and vibrant and, as Dr. Cameron found out, this place can be found easily if you follow the guidelines. After all, it is only a Whisper away.

A harrowing account of the Armenian Genocide documented through the stories of those who managed to survive and descendants who refuse to forget The grandchild of Armenians who escaped widespread massacres during the Ottoman Empire a century ago, Varujan Vosganian grew up in Romania hearing firsthand accounts of those who had witnessed horrific killings, burned villages, and massive deportations. In this moving chronicle of the Armenian people's almost unimaginable tragedy, the author transforms true events into a work of fiction firmly grounded in survivor testimonies and historical documentation. Across Syrian desert refugee camps, Russian tundra, and Romanian villages, the book chronicles individual lives destroyed by ideological and authoritarian oppression. But this novel tells an even wider human story. Evocative of all the great sufferings that afflicted the twentieth century--world wars, concentration camps, common graves, statelessness, and others--this book belongs to all peoples whose voices have been lost. Hailed for its documentary value and sensitive authenticity, Vosganian's work has become an international phenomenon.

There is nothing more intimidating than a full mind and an empty page. It is wonderful to notice things, to be aware, to ponder as you go about your day. The thoughts bubble over and fill every cranial crevice. There is a desperate need to deposit them somewhere. So in that desperation, Whispers Of His Movement was born. I like the fact that it was birthed in desperation, because that is what I am. I am desperate and in need of God's amazing grace. The Whispers Of His Movement, the seemingly silent, imperceptible, Sovereign moments that happen each day, the ones we often miss in our busyness and self-absorption. Journey with me, as He whispers. Gina Gallagher is a woman with a heart for God and all He has for her--and us. She shares with honesty and insight how God fits into real life and enriches every day. -Gayle Roper, www.widowsjourney.com The Lord graced me with the gift of fellowship with Gina Gallagher, many years ago. She is the Proverbs 31 woman serving our Lord today. Her tender love for the Lord and for others is a divine gift. While we live many states and miles apart, one day on the phone she shared about the Father's whispers in her daily life. 'Whispers of His Movement' was birthed in her heart then. I always knew she should write from her walk with the Lord, taking His teaching onto others. May your day be extra blessed to hear these whispers from Abba Father too.
