"I'll keep this by my side to read one poem a day to return to a state of mindfulness, breathing language through the heart. If you choose one anthology, I say let it be this one for the amazement--for the voices that, surprisingly, will speak to what you want to find in yourself." --Grace Cavalieri, host and producer, The Poet and the Poem from the Library of Congress "The power of poetry is its capacity to sneak up from behind and pry open the heart. Or the soul. It's in that unanticipated moment when the truth of the poem rushes in and packs its indelible wallop. That's when a poem, for some of us, becomes a prayer. Poetry of Presence is a collection best taken one page at a time. Each poem holds enough wisdom and enlightenment to linger for days... these are poems to stir the soul." --Barbara Mahany, Chicago Tribune "The poems in this book, arranged gently and creatively, are an invitation to mindful presence and to a world where words and phrases initiate us, wake us up, and guide us home." --Kelly Boys, host of The Year of Mindfulness and mindfulness consultant to the United Nations Foundation "After reading just a poem or two in Poetry of Presence, I started quieting down, breathing easier. The poems had already begun to do their work. What a gift! This will be a book I will return to again and again to find the peaceful presence I need to face the day." --Megan Scribner, co-author of Teaching with Heart: Poetry that Speaks to the Courage to Teach
