Trio: A Collection of Previous Volumes

by Elise Skidmore


What people are saying about Elise’s poetry:

Warm and accessible, Ms. Skidmore’s poetry shines. Her love of the simple things, of home and family, evokes memories and feelings common to us all, and her sure hand strokes the iron string that runs through every heart. Kudos.
—Dale Cramer, award winning author of KISS OF THE JEWEL BIRD

If you love poetry, When Leaves Fall will fill a new corner of your heart. If you think you don’t like poetry, its achingly simple beauty will prove you wrong.
—Linda Grimes, author of Tor Books’ Ciel Halligan series

Poignant and lyrical, every sentence is a gem.
—Karen White, NYT bestselling author

Poets are dreamers by nature, but having three books of my poetry and photographs published over the past five years is more than I ever dared to dream. TRIO is a digital compilation of those books: Poems From the Edge of Spring, When Leaves Fall, and A Dance of Dreams.

If you’ve been a long time fan, then you won’t find anything new here, only the books you already know and love in one place. However, if you’re new to my work this is an excellent way to get all three books at a bargain price. (And who doesn’t love a bargain?) If you’re someone who waited to buy the paperback versions first, you might want to include TRIO to your digital collection so you can always have it handy when you have a few minutes for quiet reflection. It also makes a wonderful gift.

Whatever your reasons, I thank you for your support. Every life needs some poetry in it.

A Dance of Dreams is the eagerly anticipated third book from acclaimed poet Elise Skidmore whose poetry reaches into the heart and brings us together in the dance we all share.

A Dance of Dreams

We live in a dance of dreams,
glissade from fantasy
to nightmare
and back again.
Sometimes sweet,
Sometimes bizarre,
Sometimes graceful,
Sometimes with the wobbly legs
of a newborn fawn.
We learn new steps
as we jump to unknown futures
and grow confident in choreography
perfected over time.
Sometimes we dance solo,
other times we revel
in glorious pas de deux,
but always we are part of the corps.
Life is but a dream we create;
leap into the dance and let yourself soar.

Cover - daisy on the edge

by Elise Skidmore

A book of poetry from Elise Skidmore touching on the phases and loves of life, family, friends and the world we find ourselves in. Elise is converting poetry haters into poetry lovers with her accessible poems that delight and entertain.

 

Like Love

Like love, spring snuck up on me;
one day when I wasn’t looking,
the trees stretched bare arms to the sky
and the next thing I knew,
the world was amass of green,
rich and alive,
and smelling oh so sweet.
Like love, it filled my heart
near to bursting;
the sheer beauty of it
left me walking in circles
with this silly smile on my face.

When Leaves Fall is the eagerly anticipated second book from acclaimed poet Elise Skidmore whose poetry reaches into the heart and brings us together in the seasons of life that we all share.

When Leaves Fall

When leaves fall,
still shouting life with
their last rasping breath,

as brilliant reds, yellows and umber
crunch beneath our feet,
I breathe deep,

inhaling sunshine, wood smoke
and memories of laughing
with the leaves
and you.
