Joe and Other Poems
Donald S. MacIntosh
This book is a compilation of works that Donald S. MacIntosh accumulated over the years. Some are about people who made an impression on his life, especially during the formative years. Some are about desert life. Others were requests for birthday, anniversary, memorial, and retirement celebrations. Because of his career, many have a Military connection. Some are frivolous renderings. This book was written after much encouragement from friends who thought it would be such a shame if all these poetic endeavours were destroyed on his inevitable demise!
Joe and Other Poems is available directly from the author.
One Old Stately Pine
Fred Steele recaptures the fine art of storytelling in One Old Stately Pine. These are poetic tales of heroes and villains, good ol’ boys and friendly folk.
Childhood memories and folklore combine to create an impressive collection of stories of days gone by, some not that long ago.
by Ted Moore
When you follow your dream… you never know where it will take you. Tribute is a love story about music. It’s about an aspiring artist who dedicated his life to rock ‘n’ roll in all its seedy glory. It’s about writing, recording, touring and performing music for the world, and having the world turn away. Ted Moore emerges from an excessive, self-indulgent fog and reinvents himself to pay tribute to one of the world’s greatest altruistic rock ‘n’ rollers: Jon Bon Jovi. He deconstructs a life spent dreaming of fame and spins a tale of hope, frustration, joy, and destruction. A must read for anyone who has ever had a dream.

Capturing Moments and Freedom’s Language
By Zaynab Mohammed
Covers by Darcy Nybo
Capturing moments is the flow of inspired words in poetic form. These hand-picked poems have travelled many kilometres and across several time zones. Zaynab created these poems while sitting on boardwalks, side roads, city streets and roundabouts in Canada. Inspirited by colours, smells, feelings, thoughts, people, places and topics – every word is written for you with purpose and certainty.
This collection of poems is about the highs and lows in life. They are about frustration and realization. Mostly they are about understanding emotions and the messages that come with them. Enjoy!
