Format: Hardcover
“This book is a tavern. Enter it from any direction and drink. Each cup is a treasure, hand-crafted, unique, yet all contain the wine of astonishment and one full jigger of God’s freshest glory. O, so delicious! I drank too many and reeled off my barstool into the evening. There I saw Whitman sail past the moon, old Khayyam was singing, and the Girl whom I’m planning on marrying whispered: Lo, these pages express what can never be seen, in words that describe what can never be said.” ~Peter Hayes, Author of The Supreme Adventure and My Lady of the Bog: An Archeo-Forensic Mystery

“Fred LaMotte’s poems come from the depth of silence. They are nourishment for the starving spirit, and spring water for the thirsty. They encourage the reader to leave worry and fear behind and return to the origin, the root of all roots. This is the kind of reminder we need in this troubled world that has forgotten how to smile.” ~Guthema Roba, poet and author of Please Come Home

“A modern Rumi? Fred’s poetry is rich with love, sensual and timeless, an exploration of what comes out of the stillness and silence of awakening. I have not read a book of contemporary poetry this wise and delightful in decades. As I do with the poetry of the masters, I will return to Fred's poetry again and again. It's a bit like reading Kabir for the first time but in your own language, and your own time. You read it and you know: this is a man who understands poetry, who understands spirit, who understands you." ~George Kinder, Buddhist meditation teacher, author of Transforming Suffering into Wisdom

“Discovering Fred LaMotte's poetry has been a true gift to me. His poems are beautifully-written portals to a high consciousness and, like all great poetry, expand the reader.

The words of these poems are so mysteriously arranged as to create a high powered lens with which to look deep into the spirit of forms and the formlessness of Consciousness. Poet, Fred LaMotte has given the world a truth gift, a shamanic wounding to break us open. It will stand on my shelf beside the collected poems of Rumi, Hafiz and Rilke, and taken down often to reconnect my ordinary mind with the reality of the Infinite, permeating everything.
With sincere praise and deep gratitude,
elizabeth miller

The poems all seem fresh. It is a matter of perspective. LaMotte seems to be reaching us from a vantage point deep in the universe and deep within us at the same time. Marvelous imagery.

Format: Hardcover
Fred’s poems remind me of the lusciousness of life and that all that lusciousness can be found right inside our very own hearts, that the heart is in fact the most luscious platter of eternal fruits and that we can taste of it whenever we choose. His book, Wounded Bud, helps me breathe by providing a deep reminder that the breath is a waterfall of grace. I would like to give each of these poems a hearty hug and tell them they helped me know sweetness better.
