With Awl My Hart: In the book, E-Z Spelling, I include a poem to show the shortcomings of spellcheck. Read the spelling poem, With Awl my Hart, here.

Sound Cloud: Visit my SoundCloud page for poem recordings (staring with two poems by one of my favorite poets). :)

Poet Tree: This is here partly because I like the idea of a poet tree under a sound cloud, but also to invite you to this poet tree in Scotland.

The Million-Line Poem is an open-source poem project by Tupelo Press, building couplet by couplet, open to all. To see the poem, click here. Here’s are two of my couplet contributions, based on the context at the time…

………The taste of prey, sweet as a prayer,
……On the tongue of the hungry hawk

…………How many moments of silence and lines of poetry
…………will it take to guide this world’s old soul to peace and empathy?

The Human Experience (2007)

Paperback: $9.95

In The Human Experience, you’ll meet an artist rendering life in a small cube, old fashioned lovers in kodachrome colors, a gifted apostrophe, a contemplative clown, an ape man, a little thief, and more characters who share this condition of ours—this "brief, miraculous, frightening, enlightening human condition."


“Humor is a strong element in Diamond's poems, an attribute that makes any poetry book more user friendly.” Kay Day, The Writer,

The Beauty of Listening (2013)

Paperback: $10.95; Kindle: $3.99
Other Ebook Formats)

In The Beauty of Listening, you'll hear from paper dolls and monsters, find writers at work and words at play, and a see from a wide spectrum of perspectives. 
Linda Eve Diamond's poetry in The Beauty of Listening sweeps me off my feet—her funny (yet dead serious) musings on the fate of the word amazing, her ardent eavesdropping into the secret lives of paper dolls, her still, quiet verses that speak volumes. The book itself is as beautiful as the poems within.” Fred DuBose, Editorial Director, Reader's Digest General Books (ret.)
