Literature for Living
Gemme Jewels & Sanctity Stone
I believe Poetry should be the Music of the Written Word, the Lyrics of a Song, the Opera of the Soul. I like to think my poetry lives up to that. It is different, in that it really isn't too different! I tend to write in a more classical style, straight from the heart with messages and meanings not hard to understand but expressed in that melodic way that only poetry can portray.
My poetry is presented in a very visually pleasing way by being paired with relevant photography or art. Each page spread is designed to be a delight for your eye as well as your heart, and will take you to a different place in your musings and meditations.
I am hoping it will please anyone, from those that didn't think they liked poetry to those that are aficionados.
I am married with four grown children and trying to find enough time to get forty-five years worth of poetry published. Not an easy task, considering poetry has become the leper of the literary publishing houses, due to poor sales. I am determined to change that, so please take a good look.
My first book, a collection of my Christian poems paired artistically with photography is available in different versions, depending on what you are looking for.
The color version that is full of photography in an 8 x 10 format is titled Holy Homes & Pious Poems. It makes a wonderful addition to anyone's coffee table or nightstand and is perfect for Christian gift giving.
There is a very inexpensive black and white version in a 5 x 8 format with much less photography titled Pious Poems & Holy Homes, which now has a special Christmas Edition that you can personalize to your friends instead of expensive Chirstmas cards and fattening foods that only give momentary enjoyment.
All versions can be partially previewed on Blurb.com by clicking the link below, or by simply googling Judith Kittredge and clicking on the title. Once the book has loaded click on the arrow box at the bottom right to enlarge your viewing screen. Then just click on the book and the pages will turn.
Blurb offers the color book, Holy Homes & Pious Poems with very deluxe paper and printing that is more appropriate for the photography in hardback and softback versions. You can purchase it HERE, and you must sign in to complete the transaction.
The black & white, Pious Poems & Holy Homes is only available on Blurb in the author's bookstore. See if this old fashioned poetry and prose doesn’t speak to your heart and soothe your soul.
