“Morning Hour”

Listen to Lynda McKinney Lambert reading her poem, “Morning Hour.”

 

Morning Hour

by Lynda McKinney Lambert

A nippy breeze

wrapped around my bare feet

like soft gray cashmere clouds.

In the early morning hour

My own reflection

slowly materialized-

I was exposed, naked,

on a clear icy glass

surface.

Outside the frozen windowpane,

an icicle boundary

surrounded my view

of the aging Douglas Fir.

I turned for a closer look

through the silent porthole

Quick movements

in the shadow

revealed

one tiny ruffled bird,

a solo performer

hunkered down, deep,

on snow-clogged branches.

Inside, this room

a blizzard-

a scattering of words still lingered-

Waited to be gathered,

In a winter bouquet-written on a page,

in spite of the bitter cold.

We have been here

for a thousand years

In the early morning hour.

Book of the Day

  “I want to support you and I want to be the first to

kick-off your Pre-Orders for the new book!”

This was what I was told at my recent visit to my eye specialist.

I think I floated out of that office –

I don’t remember my feet touching the ground.

Some days are like this. Some are not.

He has examined my eyes as he has done for the past 12 years, as I lost most of my sight suddenly in 2007. He has encouraged me in my writing and art projects and told me how proud he is of the way I have refused to let sight loss side-line me.

Not only did I leave his office with a great report from my scans today, that everything is holding and I am not losing more sight at this time – but, then, the affirmation he gave me on my newest publication was a little boost that everyone needs from time to time.

And, here is the big surprise I got this evening:

About the Author:

Lynda McKinney Lambert, is a retired college professor of fine arts and humanities. Retirement from teaching opened the door for her to write full-time. She explores the themes of landscape, mythology, pilgrimage, fine arts and literature in her writing.

She loves walking through a meadow of wild flowers; gazing at a star-strewn sky; spending solitary winter days with her husband, Bob, their 2 rescued cats and 2 rescued dogs.

ADVANCE PRAISE FOR first snow by Lynda McKinney Lambert 

My grandmother knew the name of every bird by note and call who ever sang to the sun in the fields by her Wisconsin country home, and she knew the names of the trees by bark and needle and leaf in the woods.  In these days of urban desolation and digital isolation, it is harder and harder to keep hold of the once-common natural knowledge.  Here in Lynda Lambert’s poetry the vitality of the seasons is still felt, seen and heard.   Lambert notices the colors and sounds that surround us, those sights and odes that barely register through our buds and pads and windshields, and she names them for us and she remembers them for us.  In these poems, Lambert calls her readers to celebrate the blue spruce in the morning fog, to “stand in darkness / urging Blood Moon-arise and to be alive in the old ways.  “It feels like we have been here,” she says of one icy morning, “for a thousand years.”  In these pages, we have.

–Russell Streur, editor Plum Tree Tavern, author Fault Zones.

4 Sample Poems from  first snow…

 

By Lynda McKinney Lambert

first snow

 

we watch

for the first

snowfall

wait for

silent passage

along the banks of

ancient creeks

 

dull morning light

conceals

gold-plated Gingko leaves

beneath

new-fallen snow

 

from “Dream Sequence” # 4

 

In my dream (#4)

 

I climb upwards

on the ladder I stumbled upon

in the woods one afternoon.

Earth disappears

the ladder is unstable

“Keep it straight up,” I whisper.

“Keep your body centered. Stay poised.”

 

Silver Cloud Dancers

 

Silver clouds swirl & spin in circles

Inflated silence above her golden head. She

Levitates above the floor, reaches for

Variable visions of mesmerizing cloud-pillows.

Eternally drifting in uncertain lifecycles

Round & square. Touch the floating orbs.

 

Cloud dancer stretches her slender hands

Longevity is unpredictable, uncertain

Out-of-the-box survival fluctuates

Undulates

Determined by chemistry & chaos.

 

Dance your memories in silver clouds

Air and pure helium lift in rhythm

No one can calculate your journeys

Choreography of individual flights

Every Friday morning new clouds arrive

Repeat the process of new expectations

Some silver clouds last for a week. Some don’t.

 

My Daughter Cut the Roses

 

My daughter looked

at the bouquet of fresh roses

noticed two of them were drooping.

“Let me show you how to trim the roses

so they stay fresh and strong.” she said.

Her hands held the roses tenderly

One-by-one, trimmed off extra leaves

“These will make the water stink,” she said.

She found scissors in the drawer

put the roses in a bowl of tepid water

held each stem under water

sliced them all, diagonally –

“As I cut the rose under the water,

little bubbles of air come to the surface.

Now, when the rose inhales

it will only breathe water into it,

it won’t fill up with air.

The living water inside the stems

gives longer life to each rose.”

She carried the freshened flowers

In the tall glass vase

back to the center of the dining room table

darkest crimson buds, sunny yellow petals,

deep green fern leaves

and a frilly white carnation.

Road Map to Create Your Book

Post # 202

A Road Map to Create Your Book

Star Signs: New and Selected Poems

By Lynda McKinney Lambert

Published July 15, 2019

 

Let’s take a tour of my newest book.

I think of a book as a landscape that we can walk through.

Let’s begin with the beautiful image on the book’s cover.

 

The book  is a creation by many different people.

 

Yes, as the author, I wrote the book and selected everything that is in it.

But once I did the writing, the book was sent off to DLD books, and that is where David and Leonore Dvorkin began to do their magic on it, too.

Leonore is the editor, and David is the technical director – he’s the one who puts everything it its proper place. But decisions are made by all of us as we go through the process of creating a book.

We have a shared vision for how the book should look and how it should be designed. When I say “we” I am usually referring to the Dvorkins and me, as we worked together on the book.

 

~Book Cover ~

Our book cover has to have an image that attracts the eye of a potential reader.

The first thing you are aware of when you see a book, is the cover. Immediately, you know if you like it or if you don’t. If the cover is appealing, then you will pick up the book and open the first page to have a look at the inside.

As we created the book, the cover was the last thing that was selected.

I had the idea that I wanted a rural landscape with trees, a stream and a star strewn sky.

When Leonore Dvorkin found this photo, we instantly knew it was perfect.

James WHEELER, a photographer, created the photo that Leonore found on Pexels.

WHEELER’S original  photo was too large for the cover size, so David and Leonore selected a detail from the photo and it fit perfectly. That was an exciting day when we finalized the cover image! Every time I hold this new book in my hands, I whisper a “thank you” to the wonderful photographer who captured this breathless night scene.

 

~Pre-Publication Endorsements ~

Once you get your draft to the place where you have your poems in place where you want them, you can begin to ask some other people who are respected in the writing field to write a blurb – or an endorsement – for your book and for your promotion of the book once it is published.

I asked 2 authors  to write an endorsement that would be inside the book. The 2 blurbs are by Tennessee poet, Wesley D. Sims, and New York author, Annie Chiappetta. The 2 writings are featured on a page just inside the front cover.

An excerpt from Wesley D Sims is a special highlight on the BACK COVER.

In addition, several others wrote  pre-publication endorsements that I will use in promoting the book after publication. All writers are my personal friends.

 

~Table of Contents~

The Table of Contents is a  ROAD MAP  to help a  reader  find the items in  the book.

Every aspect of the book is listed in this section, in chronological order from beginning to end of the book.

Be prepared to spend so much time on this part of the book! It may seem endless once you begin creating it – because you will move different pieces of the book around once you begin and that will change the order of the listings in the Table of Contents every time you make a tiny change. I made  an enormous amount of changes right up to the `last day of preparation before the book was published.

 

~The Dedication Page~

Choose someone you want to honor by writing a Dedication Page for them.

I chose a high school English teacher and his wife for this Dedication. Both are deceased, but both were an important part of my academic life as a young girl, and they were life-long friends through the years.

 

~Foreword~

I wanted the Foreword to be written by an editor who has published my poems in his literary magazine and immediately, I thought of Michael Northen, editor of Wordgathering. To my delight, he agreed to do it and I was thrilled that he did.

You will find that you have so much respect for the editors you work with in the different publications, that you feel so honored when they agree to help you in this way.

 

~Divide your book into parts~

Since this is my 3rd book, I realized that I have a pattern for putting together a collection of work. I was not too aware of that fact until after I completed the 3rd book. What I will describe next, is really the skeleton on which I build the book. Other writers may do it completely different than me. That is ok, because we all have a vision of how we want our book to look. What I will describe next, is my personal vision for all 3 of my books.

~Select a Photo to Begin Each Part~

 

I am a visual artist and even though I have profound sight loss, I still highly value photographs and other art forms. I want strong visuals in all of my books. After all, my entire life-long career has been in the Fine Arts. I am still the same person I’ve always been. Because I lost my sight does not mean I have lost my VISION.

I am a visionary – one who dreams

awake or asleep

I select a photo or art work that will be the opening visual statement for each part in the book. I chose an image that would reflect an idea or theme in the first poem for that section.  People really enjoy the photos  and I get compliments on my choices. In most instances, they are my own photos. I list the source of the photos to give credit for each of them and I give each photo a title which is printed below that photo.

 

~How I create different parts~

First, I select a theme for my entire book.

My theme is always discovered in one of my poems!

There is a particular poem that just stands out, for me, and I keep thinking of that poem so much that it seems to rise to the surface of my thoughts. Eventually, I realize that poem will be my opening poem, and the theme for my book is there in that poem.

For Star Signs: New and Selected Poems, I began with the poem, “Star Signs.”

This poem is the entry way into my collection.

It was FIRST PUBLISHED  in  2016,  by Wordgathering Literary Magazine. In addition to the print version of the poem, there is also a voice recording of Melissa Cotter,  who is reading my poem. I love to listen to Melissa read my poems, for she brings them to life with her interpretations.

Listen to Melissa Cotter read;  Listen to this poem now.

READ the POEM HERE:  Read it now!

When I heard her reading my poem, it was as though I never heard it before. Her reading was so beautiful that I listened to it so many times. She gave it a magic that thrilled me when I heard her voice.

From the poem, “Star Signs,” I selected an image for the opening of  Part 1 of the book.

Once I decided on that first part, then I moved on and selected 3 other poems that would open the section of Part 2, Part 3, and Part 4.

I used a line from the opening poem, for each section –

~I’ve listed the  4 Parts of the Book and the PHOTO INTRODUCTION to each part~

~Part 1 – Lights Across the Sky~

~Part 2 – Distant Legends and Metaphors~

~Part 3 – Transmutation of Earthy Elements~

~Part 4 – For Seasons, Days, and Years~

~Acknowledgments~

For poetry, you will cite only the “first publisher” of that particular poem or essay.

Here is where good record keeping is important. If I did not keep good archives of my publications, I could never do this important piece of the book.

I keep detailed records of every individual piece of writing in a file that I update monthly.

In another file I keep the publication history of every published work.

In a third file, I keep the publication history by year.

You will need to know all of this to create your Acknowledgments Page.

Believe me – this page will change so much during the editing of the book that your head might begin to spin. Leonore and I labored over this page and the Table of Contents Page for many days throughout the entire process of creating the book.

~Meet the Author~

Here is where you will have a photo of yourself as the author of the book.

In addition, this is where you will write a biography of your professional life.

For this book, since it is a collection of new and selected poems, I wanted to share the roots of my publication life – I put my first professionally published poem in this section so my readers could enjoy seeing that first poem that motivated me to continue on the writing path back in 1990.

That poem also gives the reader the information about what is important to me as a person who loves art and poetry that spans the centuries. It establishes me as an author who loves history, mythology, the Classics,  and setting work in the historical context.

 

~Additional Highlights~

This is something I never did before, but I had some additional professional recognitions that I wanted to share with my readers. I cited some international anthologies my work appeared in; a book that was published in recognition of fiber artists who have disabilities; and listed some honours I was awarded in the past year. I did this as a way of showing my appreciation for these opportunities.

 

~The Back Cover~

The back cover is just as important as the Front Cover.

It has to look appealing and it should carry information about the book.

 

For Star Signs: New and Selected Poems, we decided to put a quote from the endorsement that Wesley D. Sims wrote.

Below that quote, we wanted to put a poem that was appealing.

We chose “Painting in Mid-October” for the back cover.

It fit perfectly.

 

Below the text is a small head shot of me – the Author of the book.

It is a detail view of the black and white photo of me which we used for the “About the Author” section. I really like this photo because it shows me wearing a hand-knit jacket that I created and I am seated in my Zen Meditation Garden, in front of the Tamukeyama Tree which is as it’s peak in brilliant hot pink/red blazing colour.

I created this road map for a book of poetry.

This works for me – and I am pleased to share it today.

I hope you find it helpful when you are beginning to design your own book.

#2 – Update – Revise – New Title- Publish Concerti: Psalms for the Pilgrimage

July 28, 2019: This will be for 2020 year. I have started to make the outline for this revision. I will have to get out all my journals from the years I traveled and sift through them for additional information and material. Begin this in January 2020.

 

 

#3_Publish Star Signs: New and Selected Poems, 60 poems.

July 28, 2019: Book was published July 15, 2019.

#4- Get Chapbook, first snow, published –16 poems.

July 28, 2019: Chapbook will be published by Finishing Line Press, January 2020.

As it turned out, this chapbook was chosen by another publisher as well. I had to decline that second one.

 

#5 – Write Miss Opal – A Memoir – A Cat’s Eye View,

I have started working on the Introduction for it and will try to work on it every week at least one day from now on.

Miss Opal will tell her story of being born in the mountains of southern Ohio – her rescue – and her new life living with the famous artist, Miss Opal Waters of the Opal Waters School of Design” and her new family in western PA. I have a cast of characters ready to begin the telling of Miss Opals life story. I had this idea to write this story in 2012 – and it has been brewing ever since –

July 28, 2019: This is on the back burner for possible future project – beyond 2020.

Miss Opal at work as Lynda’s Literary Assistant in the office.

She also has a Sister Cat Miss Bessie Smith who patrols the house during the nights.

Both sisters share their lives with Lynda, Bob, and the 2 dogs:  Miss Dixie Tulip and Miss Mitchell.

 

#6 – Write my MEMOIR– Under the Blueberry Moon – in my 70s.

I  have written so many artcles that could easily be worked into a memoir, and have tons of photos I can sift through for this project.

Below: Bob Lambert snapped this photo of me  from the back when she had her hair dyed purple in the spring of 2019. It was one of those “just for fun” moments of life.

 

July 28, 2019. I completed an outline of the periods in my life, from birth, into my mid-70s. I will use this outline and begin to drop in material in 2020. I am thinking this could be a completed project by the end of 2020.

 

#7 – Continue writing my “Saturday is for Sharing” series; “Thursday Treasures Series” and “Tuesday Travels Series” for SCAN.

July 28, 2019. I find that I am not motivated to write things according to a long term pre-planned agenda and pre-planned  topics. I’ve discontinued doing the regular pieces, because I get weary and disinterested with being on a schedule like this. Life is just too complex for me to narrow it down to weekly postings in different categories. I am just too random for this kind of plan. It works fine for others, but not for me. The artist inside of me has to be able to pivot and change direction on a dime. I am erasing this expectation right now. It is not in my wheel house!

Checking up on….. Me?

Have you CHECKED UP

on yourself recently?

While I was looking for information on an art exhibit, I decided to type in my name on the google search engine. Yes, indeed,  I found MYSELF!

 

It’s always a good idea to put your BEST work on your blogs and  pages. Now that I see what is there that I wrote, I am satisfied that the 17 pages are positive ones. It’s good to know how your postings come back to haunt you sometimes. Make sure you put your best thought out there for the world to view. You know what “they say” – you only have one chance to make a good impression.

My 17 best posts.
