Also available is Samantha Underhill's melancholic Sadness of the Siren.
The poetry of Samantha Underhill is haunting, darkly beautiful, and melancholic.
Follow her to the deep on an epic journey of honesty and vulnerability, where feelings and self-perceptions are artistically expressed in classic verse.
Naked truths of inward aching, reflect the muddled mixing of fear and anger within the role she has placed upon herself.
Hidden beneath the veneer of Greek mythology, lie the shapes and forms of loneliness, regret, ostracization, and longing desire for love and acceptance.
Painted images of injustice, misperceptions, and judgment in the Siren, she reveals a dichotic world, perched on the cusp betwixt isolation and inclusion.
Samantha Underhill's lyrical dark verses in Sadness of the Siren are a cautionary tale, plea, and warning, all in one breath.
And, finally, 3 copies of the rare and now currently out-of-print Sun & Moon, Selected Poetry by Michel Weatherall.
“This relatable work is a tumultuous river that runs through the hard times and quiet times that touch every life. It carries you from beginning to end and leaves you with the final line ‘Left in the wake of your absence, now winter’s descended.’ The curtain call to a wonderful work.
“A must read for poets and those poetic at heart. I look forward to reading more of Michel’s intriguing work.”
Jen Pretty, author. 2019 Faces of Ottawa Awards Favourite Author Finalist
“Sun & Moon explores emotional quandaries through an enigmatic lens. The sobriety of madness, the fretting away of the poet's sanity.
“It is fear and hope given voice in the same breath.”
“The greeting card morality of the unthinking is precisely why books like Sun & Moon are cesarean born into a turbulent world. The poet is tasked with provoking emotional intelligence by awakening the sleepy conscience of a community that often confuses the demands of security with the desires of liberty.”
Mark Antony Rossi, author of Strength to be Human podcast and book
