Dewdrops Ride on the Wind—an Anthology is an eclectic collection of poetry and short stories depicting historical, fictional, and current related topics. Each piece offers insight into the experiences or creative imaginings of the author.
The prose may ignite laughter and spark conversation, while other thought-provoking stories will evoke strong emotions or surprise. The authors take the reader on a journey of struggle, liberty, hope, life and its dilemmas, triumphs, near death, the power of faith, science fantasy, and much more. The short stories are for those who enjoy brief reads at a given time, and easy to pick up from your coffee table or on the night stand.
In poetry, the readers will find themselves embedded in the spaces of social injustice, of failed remembrance of things past, nature as a reflection, racism, rewriting history, love, hate, survival, and empowerment. Some poetry may rocket the reader out of their comfort zone.
The book is filled with poignant photos and images, fun facts, and the melody of words.
A group of friends provide a smorgasbord of serious and light-hearted poetry and prose. The different styles of the writers reflect their experiences or creative imaginings composed for relief or perspective on various things in their life–from sadness to fun–gifting readers with their heartfelt points of view.
