Terry Michelsen’s ‘Soaring on Wings of Word’ is a collection of six previously self-published chapbooks celebrating the departure from traditional form to free verse, touching on themes of nature, human relationships, the diversity of morality, and the treachery of politics. Received with a great deal of positive reviews, Michelsen’s work inspires readers to explore their own connections with their own human spirit.

Book Reviews:

“Terry Michelsen’s debut poetry collection is a wonderful journey through waters both sacred and political.  Blending traditional poetic forms and free verse, her collection guides the reader into a realm where old gods and new worlds collide to create a testament for modern absolution.  Simply put, Michelsen’s poetry is gold.”

“Michelsen apprehends the divine with craft, innovation, and feeling.  An ambitious new work.”

– Mary Adams

Author of Commandment

 “Terry Michelsen knows that to write a poem, she must take her gloves off “…because bare hands do a better job” of caressing, nurturing, and digging into the reality of the world  she loves, whether dog, tendril, sunlight, or dreamtime.  She brings a lively wit, as well as a keen attentiveness to every encounter.  Black beans and rice, yes, she will invite you to sit down and share a bowl and a joke.  She also knows about bloodmeal and raven mocker, and she knows how to enter the world of nature, where webs of sunlight are strung through the trees and animal breath rides on the wind.  Her sonnets “from both sides of the rainbow” are in themselves worth the journey into this book.  Light and shadow live here, and she brings her reader closer to both.”

— Kathryn Stripling Byer

The Poetry of the Appalachias: Linda Dickert’s ‘The Mountains Belong to Me’

Cries of coyotes, the croak of frogs and chirping of crickets exemplify the concertos of the Smoky Mountains. I appreciate the age-worn rocks’ accommodating a waterfall’s endless challenge. I hear gospel songs, and I can see myself clogging to great blue grass harmonies.

Linda Dickert was born in Asheville, North Carolina in a time when people loved the Smoky Mountains more for their healing powers than for their monetary gain through logging and deforestation. It was in the mountains that she fell in love with the magnificence of the Appalachians and its ability to cleanse the spirit. Her book “The Mountains Belong to Me” is a culmination of a lifetime of experiences and adventures in the Great Smoky Mountains. She now lives in Cullowhee, North Carolina with her husband, one dog, and three cats.

Such a great book…you feel the writer’s passion for her work…I’d like to applaud Linda Dickert because she makes the verses in the book come alive and sing out to the world. She creates pictures of delight, beauty, serenity and hope, as evidenced by the illustrations embedded in the collection…Truly amazing!     – Arianne Claire

Dickert manages to capture the wildlife and sense of freedom in the rugged outdoors…The Mountains contains poems of imagery and feeling…A very nice collection of poetry and memories.     – Joseph Spuckler
