Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
Born in Puerto Rico, Judith Mercado moved at a young age to the U.S., where her parents became Pentecostal ministers. Early immersion in Latino and religious cultures preceded later experiences as a businesswoman, a White House Fellow, and life aboard a trawler cruising from Martha’s Vineyard to South America. She calls herself an accidental poet. Only after being tested by multiple sclerosis did she begin writing poetry on a sustained basis. A happy surprise was discovering her love for the succinct expression haikus facilitate. Her poems have been published on her blog, as well as in The Barefoot Review. Also a short story writer, she has been published in North Atlantic Review, Phati-tude Literary Review, and other literary reviews. Her essays have appeared in Latina Voices and Being Latino.

Do not be deceived by the apparent simplicity of the three stanza poems. In fact, the expressive brevity of the Haiku form of her poems frees the reader to concentrate on the essence of insight and meaning of the emotion the poet wishes to convey.
This intensity of feeling is projected by a sharply observed image of, for example, “a wind-blown prairie”, or a unique perception of nature, like “light penetrating after the storm”, that reveals an immediate insight into the archetypal mystery of life – of the eternal cycles of loss, pain, hope, and, yes, even joy!
The poet skillfully evokes this emotion by either presenting a single, sharply observed image, as in the poem, “Accessing Light”, or by juxtaposing two images that parallel or contrast with each other in significant and suggestive ways, as in the poem, “Reinventing”.
Thus, Judith immerses the reader in her verse by perception through imagery, coupled with passionate emotion, rather than through abstract statement. This fusion of the reader’s and the poet’s imagination results in a quintessential bonding of both, which is cathartic and healing.
The poems’ endearing value lies in the indomitable spirit of courage and need for joy they convey. They are realistic and inspirational. One short, but intense, poem every day of the year will provide the fuel to face life’s vicissitudes with patience, wisdom and peace.
That is the beauty of redemption!
Robert D. Baum, M.D.
