I have written these poems for you, my dear poetry-reader, so that you can rest assured that you do not walk alone through life´s tempests. Together with hope, courage, and faith in our hearts, we will brave the elements of life in these uncertain times.”

Ruth Esther Gilmore
glad to be alive

last night i steamed
with joy into life’s station

    racing across unseen borders
    with blue pinpoints

    composing the insides
    of my eyelids

with a web of gossamer
and a string of promises

    thrown over my shoulders
    glad to be free of my troubles

    glad to be alive
    in spite of everything

glad to be smiling
    once more

This book is full of hope and encouragement and the fitting companion for our daily lives. This book truly celebrates excellence in poetry.

The readers discover that whatever happens in life, everyone deserves to be treated with respect, kindness and empathy. These excellent poems reflect our difficulties like loss and missed opportunities, pain and sickness, political uncertainties and poverty, but always, every page-turning poem reveals a gold nugget of wisdom, fiery light and deep compassion.

The most difficult task in life is to put yourself into somebody else’s shoes and then to contemplatively walk in them – but exactly this task has been superbly accomplished in thought and word by Ruth Esther Gilmore.
