Launching Against the Pull of TIme

V. Press is very very delighted to launch Against the Pull of Time , a poetry pamphlet by Jenna Plewes.

“Against the Pull of Time is a spiritual and physical journey. On the island of Iona Jenna Plewes travels far into herself to come to terms with loss, ageing and mortality. The outer landscape is wonderfully realized. Sea, shore, shells, birds and buildings play a central role in her inner exploration. The immediacy of the pared writing in this sequence, its telling details and the sharing of a deeply-felt experience, draw the reader into Plewes’ journey.” Myra Schneider

“In tender, beautiful and unsentimental language Jenna Plewes takes us on a journey, walking barefoot on wet sand, sitting in a ruined nunnery, musing on the shoreline 'handcuffed to the sea'. it is a long time since I have read a collection that moved me so. One line somehow says it all: 'so many things are precious in the leaving and the letting go'. This is a collection I want to read over and over – also rare these days.” Roselle Angwin

Against the Pull of Time is very very deep-rooted and seamlessly woven.

R.R.P. £6.50

A sample poem from the pamphlet may be enjoyed below.

Against the Pull of Time (including P&P)



A Thin Place

A hand-span measure where time dissolves
in a turquoise sea.

A cell where your mind squeezes through bars,
spirals the thermals.

Here, ideas hatch like midges in sunlight.
Wind indifferent to everything but itself

will temper you, silence will free you from explanations
and excuses. The chill of rippled sand

will teach your naked feet to walk with tenderness
across the thin-skinned earth.

This place is a heart-squeeze of finding and losing,
where you will walk the machair,

try to snare a singing bird, cage it and learn its song,
where you must set it free.

  1. Do anyone still doubt natural herbs? I''ve seen the great importance of natural herbs and the wonderful work they have done in people''s lives. I wonder why people still spend their hard earn money on injections and drugs each time they are sick. Natural herbs can cure herpes, diabetics, asthma, HIV, hepatitis, etc. I''ve seen it with my own eyes. i was cured of HIV by this herbalist doctor who uses natural herbs to cure different kind of illness. Even Dr. Camala prove to the whole world that natural herbs can cure all diseases/viruses and he cured countless of people using natural herbs. i know is had to believe but am a living testimony. If anyone here is sick, why not give it a try, there is no harm in trying. Contact Dr. Camala on: dr.camalahivadscure@yahoo.com whatsap no: +2349055637784

  2. HERE IS MY TESTIMONY AND AWARENESS TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC ABOUT GREAT *DR. AZIZA HEALTH CARE* AND HOW HE CURED ME FROM HIV & HERPES VIRUS.....PLEASE READ CAREFULLY.

    I bought Doctor Aziza *NEW AGE HIV and HERPES CURE* which I watched in a video on the internet. I was very sick, i tested positive 1 to HIV and Herpes type 2, I was diagnosed back in 2013. I retested again in 2016 and was still positive, i could barley breath and hated my life everyday. The Anti-retroviral drugs just cause more issues, but i got healed after i contacted DR AZIZA HEALTH CARE and used his herbal medicine method. What he talks about may not make sense to you now but later if you try nature you will see... I followed Dr Aziza instructions on how i used the herbal medicine immediately after i received the medication through a courier services. He advised me to run a medical test after using the herbs for two(2) weeks, to my greatest surprise i tested negative! to confirm and clear the air i tested negative to HIV and HERPES VIRUS for the second time this past Thursday I got my test results again. Trust me i almost throw a party at my doctors office. They just tell me to keep getting tested. I certainly will do that to keep proving them wrong that herbal medicine is the answer. I spent a lot more on drugs than the cost of this herbs medicine. It worked for me so I really cannot see why anyone else would take pharmaceutics drugs after seeing this great works of Dr Aziza.... Get your cure and advise through his website http://drazizahealthcare.wordpress.com and Whats-App +2348137838605, Email drazizahealthcare@gmail.com because he is also specialize in curing so many other diseases and infections.
