Item description for Wake-Up Calls: 66 Morning Poems by Wanda Phipps...

A collection of Wanda Phipps's best poems from her writing project in which she wrote every day right after she awoke, Wake-Up Calls is a fascinating reflection of the many different moods a person can have in the morning and a very personal glimpse into the author's life (she was moving into a new home at the time). Phipps explores issues of identity and self with a freshness of voice and imagery fortuitously captured in the state between dreaming and fully waking up.

Reviews - What do customers think about Wake-Up Calls: 66 Morning Poems?

Dreaming goddess in a City of dreams  Aug 14, 2004
Wanda Phipp's poems are deliciously spare and delightful to read. She balances the acutal with the metaphysicaL in some acute and beautiful ways through the spaces she moves in and out of:
"a kiss not a kiss but a city operational I am with tea and mobility" #28 Like a Wallace Stevens orange on a Sunday morning, but without the formalisms, these poems glow with a garden of City delights and sometimes, doubts. But underlying the collection is a journey, and a celebration of being an artist in New York, which can be both a city of constraints (survival work) and semi-or subconscious visions and serendipities...From many angles she portrays her own musings and the City's light. Read it!
A Strong, Original and Healing Voice  Aug 9, 2004
I was given this book by a friend. Since I have very strong opinions about poetry--having grown up reading Anne sexton, May Sarton, Auden, etc--I thought, "I'm not even going to look at this. Nice cover, though."
Imagine my surprise when I glanced through it, and was so caught up that i sat down, poured a glass of wine, and read all the way through. i called my mom and read her a poem. I read one to my husband. I read one to the cat. I was surprised: the poems are seemingly unassuming, but their power accumulates, and they finally offer a true and piercingly insightful look into a modern woman's real heart.
This book had become part of my life. I recommend it wholeheartedly.

Wake Up Calls: Great Reading   Aug 6, 2004
Wanda Phipps' Wake-Up Calls 66 Morning Poems is a delightful read wherever and whenever you choose to pick up this book. This series of poems makes for the catalyst to a great day. I have enjoyed reading these poems in the early morning when I wake a prepare for my day. I love taking this book on the train and reading as I head to work. I feel a sense of being centered in Wanda's choice of words and feel like she's tapped into the early morning experiences we all go through in life. After finishing, I felt like I wanted more poems. I wanted each morning to continue reading through her colorful textures. Wanda evokes an energy that wakes this readers morning peak. At this point, I will explore searching for further reading material on Wanda Phipps. I truly enjoyed reading her poems not once, but several times since I've purchased this book.

Dreamy, Lyrical-Sensual  Aug 4, 2004
The style is so appealing, lyrical-sensual. Wanda Phipps evokes a kind of dreamy Bohemian lifestyle one doesn't hear enough about in this high-pressure type-A world. Thanks to her for helping to bring that back.
