The Shape of Today is Valerie Macon’s fourth collection of poetry. Bill Blackley comments: “Valerie’s poems are loaded with electric ah ha’s that as one line reads, ooze gold over slow silver. You won’t need money to dream, honey, your mind will dance like calories on fire . . . “
A String of Black Pearls is a collection of poetry by Valerie Macon that Poet Laureate, Shelby Stevenson, calls “a field of images along a shoreline of sails and shirts, birds and wires, wind and cables. . . . poems [that] rise and lilt in meditative sermons unmistakably searching for the very pulse of the universe.”
Sleeping Rough is a collection of poetry by Valerie Macon about homelessness. Weaving words through real people in real crisis, she brings the reader to a clearer understanding and empathy for the homeless and those living on the edge. Choosing not to look away, she established The Garden of Eaten, a garden that grows food for the needy. All profits from this book are donated to the Garden of Eaten.
