Overview

A life enhancing literary journey

Woman Reclining explores many facets of life that we experience every day. The poems inside cover topics that all of us can relate to whether it's the love we share towards one another, or the compassion towards an animal companion. My poetry teaches human values, whether I write about war or the spirituality that guides me and others each and every day.

As an artist I study my art and write about it, and I write about art created by others. I find that expressing myself as a poet when I write about their work deeply challenges me, and pushes me to work hard to write compelling literature. For example, one of my award winning pieces, "Woman Reclining" was inspired by Donna Jackson's art through Artists Among Us 2005. She and numerous other artists enabled me to craft many poems about the human condition.

I began my poetic journey as a high-school sophomore in New Milford High School in Connecticut many years ago. I find that writing defines my life and poetry gives me the ability to write creatively. I encourage you to read my book of poetry and find a piece of yourself in Woman Reclining.

    Time Well Spent

    Cheryl A. Martin's 'Woman Reclining' is poignant, lovely and haunting. Who among us is not moved by prose that strums the heartstrings while making the mind question the pros and cons of their existence? I found the author's poetry soothing...and soul searching. For someone from the East Coast to have captured the beauty of Michigan as sweetly as she does in the poems 'Kensington' and 'Petoskey Stones', is a tribute to the power of her marvelous style. Michiganders will not be the only readers affected by the wondrous turns she takes us with her stirring, yet lovingly gentle, works. Those not familiar with Haiku will come away with the desire to further explore the wonders of this medium and the author's ability to make us want to do so. Treat yourself to this journey of her works. You will enjoy the trip.
