Lost & Found: A Series of Short Verse by Members of Poetrypages.com

What you have here is one of a kind, a book that should have never been, but somehow decided it had to be, almost willed itself into existence. Books are preplanned orchestrated events... not so here, this book wrote itself, well not quite, synchronicity wrote this book. Spontaneity wrote it too. In an unplanned spontaneous endeavor, members of the online community, PoetryPages.com, came together to write the poems contained in these pages. It began with a poem entitled “lost” then again with a separate poem entitled “found” posted in our forums by Berlie (Kim Eddleman). Others were inspired to begin replying with their own “lost” and “found” poems. Soon there were quite a few of these short poems that all seemed to fit together like puzzle pieces complementing one another and becoming a larger picture. A suggestion was made that they would make a nice collection for a book and this is the result.

...Yet the stones remain less real to those who cannot
name them, or read the mute syllables graven in silica.
To see a red stone is less than seeing it as jasper—
metamorphic quartz, cousin to the flint the Kiowa
carved as arrowheads.
To name is to know and remember

to back without a pause or putting it back down, and complained
they wanted more, they hatted turning to the last page

Your pieces are as much a part of the book as you are a part of the Poetry Pages, zero.

Will it be available through Amazon ? The post and packaging cost to the UK are very high at Lulu.

Thanks Heinz your a sweetheart. I'll order straight from Lulu if it's not going to be made available through Amazon. It's just good housekeeping to explore any possibile cheaper alternatives first. :mrgreen: :thumbsup:

We didn't spend the money to get an ISBN for it so it cannot be sold at Amazon. I have considered getting one but not sure I can justify the cost. Lulu won't let me assign one of the ISBNs I already own to it.
