This book is a collection of inspired poetry with photographs from travels abroad and artwork from the author’s son. The graphic illustrations noted in this collection give poetic imagery and form. The major patterns of Lyric Poetry noted include: (1) Japanese Haiku, the shortest form, consists of 17 syllables in three lines of 5-7-5 syllables. (2) The ode -- a longer, serious poem commemorating an important event – exudes feelings of praise and noteworthiness. (3) The elegy (related to eulogies) mulls on issues and events of life and death; it is often in obituaries and funeral services. Various poems reflect the elegy pattern as demonstrated by love poems expressing deep love. Others deal with life and death, and several are relating to current events in religion and politics. Most of the poems exhibit ode and elegy forms. Praiseworthy aspects of this poetry include the rhythm and the imagery engendered for the reader through word choices. This is strong and powerful collection of poems that will surely stir your soul. They draw in the reader to make one feel like you are right there living in the action portrayed so aptly in words. The poems in this volume incorporate a variety of styles, focus, content, knowledge, and emotions. I believe every reader will find something in this collection to stir the heart and stimulate the intellect. These poems are a bountiful treasure, extraordinarily powerful and thought-provoking.
In this book, we have hand-picked the most sophisticated, unanticipated, absorbing (if not at times crackpot!), original and musing book reviews of "The Mighty Storm." Don't say we didn't warn you: these reviews are known to shock with their unconventionality or intimacy. Some may be startled by their biting sincerity; others may be spellbound by their unbridled flights of fantasy. Don't buy this book if: 1. You don't have nerves of steel. 2. You expect to get pregnant in the next five minutes. 3. You've heard it all.

This book presents a comprehensive history of the Late Bronze Age kingdom of the Hittites, and the role it played within the context of the ancient Near Eastern world. From their capital, Hattusa, in central Anatolia, the Hittite kings ruled a vast network of subject territories and vassalstates reaching from the Aegean coast of Anatolia through Syria to the river Euphrates. In the fourteenth century BC the Hittites became the supreme political and military power in the Near East. How did they achieve their supremacy? How successful were they in maintaining it? What brought abouttheir collapse and disappearance? In seeking to answer these questions, the book begins with an account of the Hittites predecessors in Anatolia, particularly in the early centuries of the second millennium, traces the rise and development of the Hittite kingdom over a period of some five hundredyears, and ends with the events which followed in the wake of the kingdoms collapse. Translations from the original texts are a particular feature of the book; thus on many issues the Hittites and their contemporaries are allowed to speak to the modern reader for themselves.
