Product description

Product Description

This is the second volume in the Floodgate Poetry Series, an annual series of books collecting three chapbooks by three poets in a single volume, edited by Andrew McFadyen-Ketchum. Chapbooks—short books under 40 pages—arose when printed books became affordable in the 16th century. The series is in the tradition of 18th and 19th century British and American literary annuals, and the Penguin Modern Poets Series of the 1960s and ’70s. Floodgate Poetry Series Vol. 2 contains poetry by Kallie Falandays, Aaron Jorgensen-Briggs, and Judy Jordan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perhaps this book will unleash a floodgate of your own :) 10 December 2015

A man doubted his resolve - a woman looked deep into his soul, finding strength he didn't know was there. He marveled at her perceptiveness. They joined forces and nothing would hinder them.

4.0 out of 5 stars I loved this book and enjoyed each of the poets 25 November 2015
By Amazon Customer - Published on
I loved this book and enjoyed each of the poets. Kallie's poems spoke to my psyche, Aaron's to my imagination, and Judy's to my heart. I felt connected to each, but in very different ways.

With the very first poem, by Kallie, I felt like she was sharing life lessons. Even after reading her whole collection, I kept going back to the end of the first poem, "After we discover our littleness we become many different kinds of hurt". This simple truth felt like an epiphany to me.

Aaron's poems felt more foreign to me, like I was looking in on someone else's life. They led me on an adventure and threw in so many quotable phrases. My favourite, by far, was "... lost inside of map of Sunday." I don't know if I could tell you exactly what Aaron meant, but I know that it's one of those lines that feels like it could mean everything and anything. It had me lost in thought and possibilities.

Judy's poems left the biggest impression on me. They "spoke" to me. One of her poems, which touched on the poverty inducing reality of US health care, made me very sad. As a Canadian, I can't imagine the stress and frustration of not being able to pay for something that you need to function on a day-to-day basis. But, she filled the tragedy of it all with such beauty. I could smell the earth and flowers she spoke of as my heart ached for her. Another was about what is lost when natural areas are developed and it broke my nature loving heart. I loved her poems, her language (I highlighted so many lines in her poems), and her focus.

Whether you're looking for a quick read or your next poetry collection, I recommend this (or, volume one, which was also very good).
