Poetry. Both Alan Britt and Silvia Scheibli have, on their own, established their durability as poets for decades. The idea to put the two together, not just because they are good friends and poets of a similar aesthetic, is genius. Even though each's work shows greater differences than similarities to the other's, it is just this contrast which shows the pure individual way one can nurture the same perception by way of a uniquely different set of experiences. Both intrigue and delight; neither is whimsical unless on purpose. Both are concerned with the deterioration of the environment inclusive especially of the lack of civility among human beings on the planet. Reading either poet snaps you back from the brink of this non-reality we've all been brainwashed to believe is the only true reality. Experience is everything and both Britt and Scheibli's words develop it beautifully.

Her poems reflect her love of nature and wildlife as well as cosmopolitan habitats as felt in these lines from Japanese Tea Ceremony - Golden Gate Park. She states: --The drinkers pour simplicity into a tiny cup/and are transformed/by a swallow's flight at their fingertips.-- Silvia Scheibli's poems are translated internationally and included in numerous anthologies. She is a participant in the We Are You Project International and a January contributor to the online magazine,Truck. Her latest books are Under The Loquat Tree by Vida Publishing Inc., Maryland, 2002 and Parabola Dreams: Poems by Silvia Scheibli and Alan Britt published by The Bitter Oleander Press, New York, 2013. According to the distinguished poet, Lilvia Soto, Scheibli --writes with an erotic brush and some of her word watercolors are true surrealist visions representing sensitive portraits of Mexican culture with a Zen aliveness and a lightning knowing. For example, in her poem --In the Time of the Jaguar and the Sky Island Alliance,-- Ms. Scheibli states--He watched jagged fruit bats/ slide out of the moon's silver sleeves/flutter to chrome-sapphire blossoms.-- She is a regular contributor to the award-winning Bitter Oleander, whose publisher and editor, Paul B. Roth, published her first book of poems, The Moon Rises in the Rattlesnake's Mouth in the early 1970's after she graduated from Tampa University, Tampa, Florida.
