Read full description of the books:
Award-winning poet Bryana Johnson writes in her first full-length collection of poetry,
I want my ink to do happy dances,
to careen across the pages staggering
like a drunken fellow, giddy
on moonshine or sunset.
and the words that she has strung together in this winsome compilation do just that. Having Decided to Stay is an exploration in verse of G.K. Chesterton’s assertion that, “gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.” Its 40 poems present the colossal wonders of human existence with elegant and startling cadence. Bryana embraces both free verse and fixed forms, and her language sings regardless of the pattern she employs. Drawing from classical literature, popular culture, personal experience and the awe of the untamed wild, these poems were spun out of the spilling over of an overwhelmed heart. The poet earnestly entreats the reader to lean in and become transfixed.

Read information about the authorBryana writes because all of the bushes are afire after all. Because somehow we must figure out a way to live barefoot, awestruck, transfixed, before the light of Christ that plays in ten thousand places.
Bryana's many passions include literature, acrylic paints, acoustic guitar, educational theory, watercolor journaling, political science, thunderstorms, history, calligraphy, the wonder of green things, and children. She lives the wide life on a farm among animals and blackberry plants and in pastures and creekbeds and trees writes about the mystery and the triumph of the narrow way.
Her poems have won several prizes in contests sponsored by the HSLDA and contests sponsored by The Utmost Christian Writers Foundation. She was awarded an honorable mention in the 2012 Dorothy Sargent Poetry Prizes Contest. Her poems have appeared in a number of literary journals, including:
The Boston Literary Magazine, Time of Singing, Assisi: A Journal of Arts and Letters, Adroit Journal, The Mayo Review, Quantum Poetry Magazine, Dappled Things, Ruminate and Emerge Literary Journal
