As I read from No Fresh Cut Flowers with the accompanying music specially composed for the book, a perfect ambiance manifests itself in the reading.__________________________________________________________________________________
The poems are superior, plus the included color photographs.
It is evident that much thought has gone into the selection of poetry with an Afterlife theme. The various views and topics are from poets around the globe.
To have your own CD of music specially composed for the book along with a quality paperback makes this a good buy. It's an excellent choice for spiritually-minded readers. It certainly makes a nice gift to others, awakening our spiritual senses.

"I like these interpretations, translations, and variations, because they really capture the brassy candor which still draws readers to the world's most famous lesbian." - William B Keckler, author & award winning poet
Sappho Does Hay(na)ku is poetry that begs to be read. It doesn't lifelessly sit on the page, it sticks its hands out, grabs your collar, and pulls you in close. At moments the pieces are touching, playful, sexy, funny -- they are always engaging. The poems often end differently than you would imagine, making the work fresh and smart. While being that, it is also incredibly accessible, you needn't know anything about Greek goddesses or poetry to enjoy this work.
I really do recommend Sappho Does Hay(na)ku. It has poetry for every mood and every situation. Every time I pick it up it gets better.
