NightBallet Press is enormously pleased to wish Santa Fe, New Mexico poet Alex Gildzen a very Happy Birthday today, and to celebrate his birthday with the publication of Blossoms—a collection of poems (1955 to 2013) in celebration of the poet's 70th birthday!
Blossoms—a collection of poems (1955 to 2013) in celebration of the poet's 70th birthday is exactly that- a marvelous book-length collection of poems ranging from Gildzen's earliest surviving poem, "Blossoms, Blossoms, Oh Lovely Blossoms" to one of his most recent ones, "Hawaiian Coffee and Bartok". Blossoms is a bright, lush garden full of plant life and real life: rosebuds, lilacs, poppies, mulberry, basil, aloe, hollyhock, orchids, and cereus snuggle and thrive next to celebration, contemplation, loss, remembrance, love, enlightenment, and joie de vivre.
With 60 pages of 42 poems, 2 portraits of the poet, 3 breathtaking "Moonflower" images from photographer extraordinaire Chandra Alderman, and an introduction by poet Tom Kryss, Blossoms is a tribute to and testimony of a life well-lived for 70 years.
