    At the risk of not liking the responses (Yes, I admit this may happen) :) I am going to ask for 'advice'. I am attempting to write without rhyme. It's not easy for me because truly that's how it comes out....I guess I'm trying to expand my poetry. The title is 'Walking Away From Your Life'. I'm not sure what the 'expected' rules are and I kinda hate to follow rules (exactly) so I'm just wondering if this works or not. Feel free to be honest. :) Thanks, Mary

      You are very brave! Yeah, there really aren't any rules. It's however you can best deliver the impact. All the figures of speech (which are the same as in rhymed verse) simply go to enhancing the c ... more

    JC, Amazon UK only list 'The Gift' and 'Christmas Story'. Can Chax Press get them up to speed? Since although Chax quote a very reasonable price in sterling, I don't have Mastercard or Visa which they require.(The debit card from HSBC, 'The World's Bank' quote unquote, is useless...!)

    All who admire the unique voice of Ulrike Gerbig, should own a copy of one or both of her books (a must on your bookshelf) ! ! ! I encourage you to own at least one of your very own.

    Ulrike's poetry evokes a stark naked beauty, that compells the reader to dive deep into whatever she is saying. In every finely crafted word there is a tidal wave of emotion. Both the artist and her works are built to inspire~

    'Love in all the right places' and 'Every Woman's Blues'

    If you are intersted. these books are available to purchase thru the Poet herself, on this site.

      I totally agree with Adrienne's comments. Ulrike (Ulli) Gerbig is an exceptional poet, and I'm pleased to say a dear friend. Do yourselves a big favour and include 'Love in all the right places' and ... more
