I Am My Mother’s Only Poem

I Am My Mother’s Only Poem
By Renee Howard Cassese

A family history and memoir in poetry shows how a woman develops and learns to accept who she is at her core.

“There are poems peopled with family folklore and life experience. From ‘steam filled kitchens’ to ‘oil well fires,’ Palestine and Pesach Tikvah, and ‘Kentucky bluegrass and orange dahlias,’ this collection is populated with the extraordinary everyday details that braid together a family and resonate with heart and hope. In both unexpected love and solitude that ‘is a shawl woven in somber strands of regret,’ the reader will find a celebration of connection, loss, and renewal within this beautiful collection.”
-Melanie Faith, author of To Waken is to Begin, Aldrich Press

“A Breathtaking memoir that introduces you to Cassese’s family and life, a poem at a time. The cumulative effect shows the author’s depth of understanding and powers of reflection. A must read.”
-Matilda Butler, award-winning co-author of Writing Alchemy: How to Write Fast and Deep

“I am My Mother’s Only Poem is a must-have poetry-story collection rich in family, life, wisdom, image. Cassese’s story can be anyone’s story. You will delight in each page; it will inspire you to each your soul and history for your own story. Cassese’s gorgeous artwork woven through the lyric pages adds depth and beauty to her work. An exquisite book you would be proud to have on your coffee table and gift to the ones you love!”
-Lorraine Mejia, author of Wild Woman at My Door
