About this ebook

Poetry: that fifth element: essential for human eyes to read, human ears to hear, and human hearts and souls to feel.  Four elements as envisioned by Linda Imbler within poetry’s arc: from the myth of Theros to the reality of tornadoes [Air,] within the depths of despair at the loss of flood victims to the beautiful imaginativeness that can develop while watching clouds [Water,] following the trail from horrible domestic violence to paranormality [Fire,] seeking truth about a present day metaphorical earthquake or the theory of a future apocalyptic world [Earth.]

    About This Book:

    Forget atoms and molecules. In the simplest terms, an element is part of something essential: Water, Air, Fire, Earth. And then there is Poetry, the fifth element: essential for human eyes to read, human ears to hear, and human hearts and souls to feel.

    So, please, enjoy reading my poems that address aspects of the first four elements and how each can be viewed within poetry’s arc.
