About the Author: Carol Lynn Pearson

fourth grade, in Gusher, Utah, I won four dollars in a school district essay contest on Why We Should Eat a Better Breakfast And yes, this morning I had a bowl of my own excellent granola, followed by a hike in the hills near my home in Walnut Creek, California.In high school I began writing in earnest I have now in my files a folder marked Poetry, Very Bad, and another, Poetry, Not Quite So Bad Writing served a good purpose for that very dramatic, insecure adolescent Also at that time I began to keep a diary, which I still maintain and which has been indescribably useful to me both as a writer and as a pilgrim on the earth After graduating from Brigham Young University with an MA in theatre, teaching for a year in Utah at Snow College, and traveling for a year, I taught part time at BYU in the English department and was then hired by the motion picture studio on campus to write educational and religious screenplays.While performing at the university as Mrs Antrobus in Thornton Wilder s The Skin of Our Teeth, I met and fell in love with Gerald Pearson, a shining, blond, enthusiastic young man, who fell in love with me and my poems We ve got to get them published, he said on our honeymoon, and soon dragged me up to the big city, Salt Lake City, to see who would be first in line to publish them Poetry doesn t sell, insisted everyone we spoke to, and I, somewhat relieved, put publishing on the list of things to do posthumously.But not Gerald Then I ll publish them, he said Borrowing two thousand dollars, he created a company called Trilogy Arts and published two thousand copies of a book called Beginnings, a slim, hard back volume with a white cover that featured a stunning illustration, God in Embryo, by our good friend Trevor Southey, now an internationally known artist On the day in autumn of 1967 that Gerald delivered the books by truck to our little apartment in Provo, I was terrified I really had wanted to do this posthumously BeginningsTodayYou came runningWith a small specked eggWarm in your hand.You could barely understand,I know,As I told you of Beginnings Of egg and bird.Told, too,That years ago you began,Smaller than sight.And then,As egg yearns for skyAnd seed stretches to tree,You became Like me.Oh,But there s so much .You and I, child,Have just begun.Think Worlds from nowWhat might we be We, who are seedOf Deity.We toted a package of books up to the BYU bookstore, and asked to see the book buyer Well, she said, nobody ever buys poetry, but since you re a local person, let me take four on consignment As they came in packages of twenty, we persuaded her to take twenty on consignment Next day she called and asked, Those books you brought up here Do you have any of them I had anticipated that the two thousand books, now stacked in our little closet and under our bed and in my Daddy s garage, would last us years and years as wedding presents But immediately we ordered a second printing Beginnings sold over 150,000 copies before we gave it to Doubleday and then to Bookcraft.Beginnings was followed by other volumes of poetry The Search, The Growing Season, A Widening View, I Can t Stop Smiling, and Women I Have Known and Been Most of the poems from the earlier books now appear in a compilation, Beginnings and Beyond The poems have been widely reprinted in such places as Ann Landers column, the second volume of Chicken Soup for the Soul, and college textbooks such as Houghton Mifflin s Structure and Meaning an Introduction to Literature That first little volume of verse, and my husband s determination, laid the foundation for my entire career.Another characteristic of my husband was to have a profound effect on both

    This is such a good little book of love poems I really like Carol Lynn Pearson, and this collection is one of my favorites.My favorite poems from the book are EmbraceFilledSeeing You Seeing MeThe SignalOccupiedHomeCould I SleepTo the Sound of the RainFinal ComfortSo many of these poems seem to describe exactly how I feel about Dave THAT is good poetry I will share the words to just three of them Filled My life was a jar,Packed with pebblesTo the top.I didn t knowThere were spacesUntil you filled them.Like sand filteringThe empty placesFull,You are there betweenAnd around every thought,Every motion.There is no momentThat is notHeavy with you somehow.I am pressed,Pressed.Even breathingIs not easy now The Signal In case of crowdsOr other mufflingCircumstances,I ve designed a signThat should get through If you notice meBreathing,That will signalI love you Could I Sleep Could I sleepIf I slept with you Could I forgetThe fact of your skinWithin touching distanceLong enough to let go Lovers do sleep,I know.I ve seen it in the movies.But just now,Riveted awake merelyBy the thought of you,I can t imagine how.

    I don t normally pick up poetry books I don t mind poetry, I just don t generally read it and when I do, I typically go for the well known greats ex Dickinson, Frost, etc So, it was on a random whim that I picked up several poetry books by Carol Lynn Pearson at the library I had heard several people mention her within a few weeks and I was intrigued by her story Look it up on Wikipedia This was the first book I started reading and I was hooked from the first page Simply Beautiful I don t know how else to describe it I love them I immediately bought this book and I think I ll have to buy her others This is my favorite poem from this collection Seeing You Seeing Me Seeing you seeing meTook my breath away.I never knewThere were Grand CanyonsIn me,And Mona LisasAnd Sistine ChapelsAnd the Alps Until that look,That amazed, amazing look,Crossed your tourist faceAnd I became the newestWonder of the world.
