“These contemplative poems are simple in construct and profound in impact as the poet’s world is tempered through eyes of his adult self. The poems grow slowly more philosophical: the dazed fly crawling on a window pane becomes a metaphor for his father, a caged bird a metaphor for the writer. You will nod, you will shake your head, you will smile, and you will return to these poems again.

Ann Howells, Editor of Illya’s Honey

The Orchard Street Press is pleased to announce the release of Twenty Small Worlds, an exceptional new collection of sonnets by Mark Louis Lehman of Cincinnati.

Noted American poet Annie Finch has written: "Rosetti expresses one of the most useful powers of the sonnet: the ability to keep a moment, to hold a feeling or experience and turn it around in the light of our awareness until many facets are evident. This multifaceted quality gives the sonnet a paradoxical feeling of freedom and expanse within confines.....It also helps explain the lasting appeal of the sonnet, the form that Rita Dove has called a 'little world." Mr. Lehman's poems here offer us twenty such 'expansive confines.'

Len Herrick, former Poet Laureate of Fresno, writes: “Vanishing Point is a pure delight: each poem is full of grace and wonder about our relationship with the natural world, exploring astonishment and certainty, belief and memory, and damage and repair.” Award-winning poet Corrine Clegg Hales, says: “This is an extraordinary new collection by a poet who has mastered her craft and who speaks of life in this world with precision, grace, and often startling clarity.”

Joyce Brown’s poems  take a remarkably fresh look at things we see (or perhaps, miss) every day, and they breathe a life into them that transforms them into experiences, lessons even that stay with us. In “Trip Home,” she writes: The death I’ve planned,/put up like a jar of peach preserves,/comes late in life, in bed, my dogs at hand,/the basement finally waterproofed/and clean/my piano tuned. I grieve,/but reach for God, and face the music/which is always Brahms.” The reader  is treated to thoughtfulness and craft like that throughout this book.

The Third Place winner in Orchard Street’s 2017 Chapbook Contest, this book is a marvelous collection of poems about post-industrial America, fathers and sons, and the large and small things that make up the fabric of life. This is a book about faith, love, persistence, and the questions of life, some answered, some beyond our reach. Thankfully, the challenge of these difficult questionsdoes not deter Sean Lause’ from reaching, which is what this book is about.
