WRITTEN IN THE MARGINS: POEMS TOUCHING THE ESSENCE OF LIFE
by Alma Margaret Permar
Alma Margaret Permar has published WRITTEN IN THE MARGINS: POEMS TOUCHING THE ESSENCE OF LIFE. In the midst of nurturing a family, working in various full-time professional careers, living and traveling throughout the United States and other countries, Alma has continued to write. In this book she has now brought some of the notes from the margins of her experiences into the center of the page. She has integrated her reflections and insights into a collection of very accessible poetry seeded by out universal life experiences of challenge, conflict, change, and celebration.
This is a book that you will want to place on your nightstand with a pen so that you, too, can make notes in its margins as your own reflections and insights emerge. You will not only appreciate reading and engaging these poems, but you will also treasure discovering your own notes written in the margins of this book.
“What a Christmas gift this would be. A writer of poetry, short stories and essays, Alma has now created a book that will touch every reader’s soul.”- Penny Porter
