FEARLESS POETRY SERIES • VOLUME 2
Edited by Sari Friedman & D. Patrick Miller

“What is love that some people race from it; some die without it; and a few recreate it in art? With love you’re like that little old lady who lifted the Volkswagen that slipped off a tire jack, trapping her grandson. You’re Herculean. Abundantly alive. Lost and found. You hear the mermaids singing. You become impervious to pain… or simply happy...” — from the Foreword

“Thoughtful with black and white photography scattered throughout to accentuate the feeling, Touching is an anthology that will inspire the senses and remind readers of the fire of humanity.” — from a 5-star Amazon review by Midwest Book Review

“Don't let the racy cover fool you, between the sexy cover of this book live the kinds of poems that makes you want to venerate every stage of love, from the flush of that first kiss to the final days of a life spent loving well and being well loved. It celebrates all the big, complex moments we spend looking for and finding love, but also reminds us that love can be quiet and uncomplicated. One of my favorite verses is found in Ode To Our Toothbrushes. "These lucky brushes so entwined/dream not of places less divine/and never part save when we hold,/along with us, they're growing old." And what is love, if not the ability to savor these beautiful moments of togetherness? I am giving this book to those I love best this year.” — Amazon review by Lisa T.C., Santa Fe, N.M.

Smashwords Review by: Sara Marie Hogg: star star star star star
“I am not into ‘love poems,’ but I must commend you on compiling an excellent volume of poetry. The poetry is so beautiful, that I fell in love with them. The contributors have all mastered the craft — even the barfly. Sari’s own poems are very good also. —
Sara Marie Hogg
