Martha O. Adams to have a poem appear with a review of her book, Buried Seed, in the Dec. 2015 issue of WNC Woman Magazine

Martha O. Adams will have a poem that will appear along with a review of her book, Buried Seed, in the Dec. issue of WNC Woman magazine. Here is one of her poems from Buried Seed:


In flame and marrow
Deaf ears can’t protect
Survive a while woven into linen
Linger in a last goodbye unsaid
Hover over pain stifled lips of the dead
Like cold dread hidden
In a curled leaf
Traces remain
Glued to a slap, a strap
A haunt, a swoon; that scent
A name
Fitful ghosts
Under the tongue.

The Rain, a Poem by Martha O. Adams

  This Rain

This rain
Warmed before bonfires of stars
Rides on night’s black tides
Ghostly, flows slowly into day

Cycles in circles through time
Singing of morning’s shine
And the night’s cold shoulder

Old gray gown
Tailored for sleep
And the dreams of seeds
