    Ronald E. Hignite demonstrates in A Time to Live and a Time to Die his poetic skills and gives greater understanding and meaning to God's seasons for man as revealed by Solomon in the Book of Ecclesiastes.
    
    Listeners will be inspired by the manner in which Hignite presents the contrasts of the ever-changing seasons of man in poetry and rhyme.
    
    Ronald E. Hignite was born in North Carolina and grew up in Connersville, Indiana. He returned to North Carolina with his family after high school and attended East Carolina University in Greenville, NC. There he earned both his undergraduate and graduate degrees. Following college, he taught English at Fork Union Military Academy in Fork Union, VA.
    
    After two years in Fork Union, he moved back to northeastern North Carolina where he spent most of his educational career in the towns of Washington, Camden, Murfreesboro, and Ahoskie. His interest in writing poetry was sparked while in college with his readings of the English poets, Byron, Shelley, and Keats.

    In this poetry collection 'Ways to Say Goodbye'. Anne Kellas takes the listener through dream sequences, abstract and imagistic poems and deeply personal poems of loss. The effect is a cumulative building of a quiet world of reflective resilience as the poet tries out possible ways to do what is almost impossible – to love and to say goodbye."These poems, their accounts of the ways art, chance talk, angels, birds, memories and music can come at us with terrible and tender truths, are gifts that teach us how ‘to read the mind of clouds’." (Kevin Brophy)

    In his third collection, the award-winning author crafts poems that “reckon with the sins of history and the human-made scars on the natural world” (Beth Ann Fennelly, Poet Laureate of Mississippi). 
     
    Winner of the 2016 Benjamin Saltman Poetry Award, Southern Tongues Leave Us Shining explores the South and its history through the eyes of the living, the dead, and the inbetween. 
     
    “The songs of Charles Wright, Rilke, and Blind Willie Johnson have tuned Wagenaar’s ear, but the music is his own, irresistibly so. Southern Tongues Leave Us Shining is a brave and difficult grappling, ending with the difficult joy of a child’s birth and the world’s subsequent remaking. This is, simply put, poetry that adds to the glory of the human endeavor.” —Beth Ann Fennelly, author of Heating & Cooling 
     
    “In Southern Tongues Leave Us Shining, there is a rapturous beauty that encompasses the American South, the United States, and the world, a poetic rooted in the space around the poet and extending outward to the world with questioning, compassion, grief, and hope.” —Afaa M. Weaver, winner of the Kingsley Tufts Poetry Award 
     
    “The speaker searches constantly for evidence of God’s presence in the world. It is a book of doubt just as much as it is a book of faith. Indeed, doubt threatens, at every line break, to wrest faith from the speaker’s hands. But books of doubt are books of faith, and Southern Tongues understands this.” —Los Angeles Review of Books

    Get Well Soon - Poems

    In the spring of 2020, Jamie Sharpe was in New Brunswick, purportedly studying the famed Magnetic Hill outside Moncton. A dog-walker discovered Sharpe in a ditch, disrobed except for his backpack containing a manuscript …
    		 
    With his fifth collection, Get Well Soon, Sharpe reaffirms “he is utter master of his language. Whether [Sharpe’s] poems are the result of long lucubration or the inspiration of the moment, they bear no mark of effort, and it is not without admiration, nor even without astonishment, that one is carried along — by the noble, unswerving amble of those gorgeous stanzas, proud white hackneys harnessed in gold — into the glory of the evenings. Rich and subtle, [Jamie Sharpe]’s poetry is never merely lyrical; it always encloses an idea within the garland of its metaphors, and however vague or general that idea may be, it serves to strengthen the necklace; the pearls are secured by a thread that, though sometimes invisible, is ever sure.”
