Earlier this year, I was honoured to be asked to be part of a special collection of poetry dealing with the way humans deal with both physical and emotional trauma.
Beyond The Dark Room: An International Collection of Transformative Poetry was published on August 27th. Poems are divided into chapters that deal with an emotion or state of being, dealing with and/or recovering from, a traumatic experience. Chapters include topics ranging from Anger,and, Depression,and Calm, and Trust, to everything in between and beyond.
The book is available from Amazon.com and the royalties go to
by editor Pearl Ketover Prilik
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This collection of poetry runs the gamut of emotions human beings experience in dealing with trauma and life altering events. Many of the poems are hard-hitting and blunt while others are more subtle in describing
the anger, shock, and pain people deal with, but other poem in the book also deal with the emotions of
love and trust, of regaining confidence, and moving beyond…emerging from the “dark room”.
