Opening Doors: An equilog of poetry about Donkeys

by Jenny L. Bates

"If you ever had a relationship with a donkey you will be pulled into these poems and see into their souls as well as expose yours to the love you have for them. You will laugh and cry, remember the good times and why you fell in love with them in the first place." Cheryl

A portion of the proceeds of this book go to the Donkey Sanctuary in Devon, UK

Paperback, 80 pages $10.00 I bought Jenny's Books so she could send the money to The Donkey Sanctuary in Devon, UK. The price is just to cover my expenses.

Opening Doors, An equilog of poetry about Donkeys.

Excerpt from Opening Doors:

Ear Speak (or) Lost Road Found, to Listening

What language lost through many years

Of never hearing a Donkey’s ears?

Watching them close they brush the air

And paint a bounteous picture there.

They wiggle and wobble

Salute and lay flat,

As their ear speak continues

Towards the hay and the grass.

We should be listening

Ever to the language of ears

Transporting ourselves through Donkey’s years.

(continued page 58)

About the Author:

Like the Illustrated Man, I try to bring all the stories that are inside me to life. My poetry is a reflection of who I am and what I am doing here. Through my poetry I would like people to come close and see the story unfold. Donkeys are truly my soul's truth and I enjoy all reactions to my work experiencing a moment perhaps forgotten or never yet known about Donkeys. I work at a local library in King, NC and my life was completely changed by one book: "The Wisdom of Donkeys" by Andy Merrifield. Because of Mr. Merrifield's book, I now am a close supporter and writer/ contributor to The Donkey Sanctuary in Devon, UK. I am most humbly grateful for all the fairy tales and philosophies from many cultures and inspiration that comes from the secrets of being. Most of all, to the transcendent and honest Donkeys throughout the world. The best compliment I've ever received is a reader telling me "You have a Donkey heart". Thank you.

 Two of Jenny's very close friends, Jasmine and Sunshine
