Whispered Words

Dealing with the raw emotion that stemmed from low self-esteem, self-isolation, depression, abandonment, death, angst, anger, love, passion, hope and elation, Karen Koski's use of poetry as a means of expression and therapy leads to a roller coaster ride that leaves you wanting for more. Eluding to the moon in many of her works as well as the nature that surrounds us all she creates a distinct mature and explicit atmosphere to allow the reader to relate to each poem individually. Being that a tapestry expresses a story or tale through means of weave, Karen has attempted to “weave” multiple stories using verse with the works of Tennyson, Byron, Wordsworth and other such Classical poets in mind, while adding a modern day twist. Her themes are common emotions we have all experienced at some point in time, while her use of language, intricate detail and ability to create illusions and images within the mind's eye makes “A Moonlit Tapestry” a fantastic journey.

There is a whisper of malcontent
that beckons in the air
With mystery, shivers and hopeless woe
of broken hearts and tears.

Minuscule and empty
the glass part full does weep
while stains of crystal echo in whole
with the sadness of the World
we carry on our shoulders.
(more in the book)

ii. FATE

Solemn souls of misconstrued madness,
“I am empty in this world of fate”
The Temptress lies within a heart of stone
Enchanting those of whom she hates.

Ministrations beckon to memories past,
With lightened hope that steal each dream.
Capitulating nerves bared in silent strength
Of one who lies in wait.

Turning shadows in mortar’s breath
Brimstone curdles in a tender kiss
Licking malevolence of evils lust
Guide the lost toward God’s grace.(more in the book)

Professional Reviews

Charles W. Barnett Co-founder D.A.R.C. Poets Society
An excellent collection of poetry -
I was amazed by the emotional power this book delivers. As a poet who reads a lot of poetry this rates as some of the best I have read. I wish you great success with this book, it is definitely one to add to the collection.

Poetry from the heart - Anne Rogers - Author
This book of poetry is outstanding. Karen puts into words all the things that many of us dare not speak of. Instead we bottle them up and suffer the consequences. Just reading this work brings to mind the events of my past that caused me much pain and suffering, but also reminded me of how I got through it and survived. This is inspiring and thought provoking and gives one the strength to carry on knowing that there is light at the end of the tunnel. Bravo Karen.
Regards Anne Rogers
