Psalms - New Poetry Collection by Dave Morrison

  • May 30, 2017

Maine poet Dave Morrison will released his 12 collection of poetry, Psalms (JukeBooks 2017) on July 1, 2017. Equal parts poems, memoir and Zen fortune cookies, Psalms is 100 short poems, arranged like beads on a string.

"Compelling and wise as the mystical musings of Rumi, these psalms sing it loud and yet whisper secrets in your ear. You can take these beguiling poems to heart.”

~Kristen Lindquist authorof Tourists in the Known World

“Morrison's Psalms are distillations on his perennial themes: natural curiosity, the difficulties of writing poems, and the rocking, rolling, tumbling search for true wisdom.”

~Dana Wilde authorof Summer to Fall

“These 100 compact, psalm-infused poems take you by surprise with their power. Don't wait for your life to happen. Read these poems and take charge of your destiny.”

~Donna Marie Merritt, author of No Winter Maintenance: Pass at Your Own Risk

“Morrison surprises and stuns us with his honesty.  This collection of 100 short poems--advice, aphorisms, observations, cries for help - shows us the poet in all his vulnerabilities, leavened with Morrison's trademark self-deprecating humor.”

~Alice Persons, Editor, Publisher, Poet

Morison is the author of Fail, Clubland (poems about rock & roll bars in verse), Shake Hands With Your Heart, and Cancer Poems. His work has been featured in literary magazines and anthologies, and read on Writers Almanac and Take Heart.
