Format: Paperback
What do a special education teacher, a person coping with a brain injury, and a retired Marine aviator all have in common? They are poets being mentored by Linda Leedy Schneider. In this Mentor's Bouquet, seven individual voices rise up to prove the power of poetry and the power of a wonderful teacher.

Writing down the bones of the words is one of the oldest methods of self-exploration and expression. Working individually with a writer in self-exploration is a position of such grace as to benefit both teacher and student. Poetry is a form that enables the writer to understand the inner core of their life and empowers them to change the course of things to come. This body of work is an example of how rich a treasure such an artistic endeavor can produce. Think of poetry as giving words new life, of giving experience, new dimensions, of process, as a relationship with greater possibilities than one individual can achieve unguided. A Mentor's Bouquet is the product of a journey between student and teacher. It speaks from the heart of those involved.

There is a primal presence in this collection. It is made up of voices from a highly diverse community. Or perhaps it would be more fitting to say tribe or family. The authenticity and intimacy of the voices are memorable. Mentor's Bouquet is a collection of poems affluent with experiential insight and lyrical poise. It is also a testimony to the mentorship of Linda Leedy Schneider. We are present at some ancient storytelling ceremony. The fire crackles and there in the background are calloused fingers whispering the beat of a drum.
