Melene Kemmerling, a writer from Chicago, has completed her first book “Running Over Bridges”: a gripping and potent collection of poetry and prose that is a luminous example of the creative potential of the human mind.
On what was her inspiration to write, author Melene Kemmerling said, “I started to write so I could eliminate the darkness in my mind of my past by communicating with my best friend Vi Williams. She is the only one in my life that said I had the ability to write, plus gave me the inspiration and courage to write this book. Walking and letting my mind wander is also an inspiration to my poems.”
Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Melene Kemmerling’s poignant anthology is an existential exploration of being and perception. Written to awake the human soul and heighten personal awareness, this work is a mind expanding trek into thoughtfulness.
Melene Kemmerling unravels the mystery that wraps her life in the poems that she shares with her best friend, who regards her pieces with admiration and praise. This anthology contains Melene’s deepest thoughts on failures, on success, on Mother Nature, on intimacy, on lost loves, on childhood, on weathers, on love, on running on trails, on the Lord, and many more. It will take readers on a journey that Melene had never even shared with anyone before but her best friend.
