Tea Stories

Tea Stories is an idea that came about through my many conversations with friends and loved ones about their harried lives and busy schedules. Believing that crunched time shouldn’t hamper compelling, fulfilling reading, Tea Stories came to be. Never spanning over 3000 words, the Tea Stories Collection contains compact stories of adventure and magic, wisdom and philosophies, designed to be complete and whole tales one can finish in under 10 minutes. Look for a new Tea Story every couple months! Widely available and always free. ♥

REDROBECOLLECTEDPOEMS

The Red Robe – Collected Poems

A collection of 30 poems written between 2012-15, A. Marie Kaluza crystallizes the union of family, romance, and the inner world, challenging the perception of these things as separate pursuits and intertwines them in rhythmic prose and free verse. Full of slant rhyme and harmonic, Kaluza creates a world of wonder in the everyday, often veering into dark passages of self-meaning and internal discovery, and the uncertainty of desire. A rich collection, The Red Robe brings depth and feather-like feeling, while resting comfortably in the ambiguous arms of poetry.

Bare Bones (1)

Bare Bones – Collected Poems

In this simplistic volume, A. Marie Kaluza strips poetry and storytelling down to its most basic components. Using free verse and slant rhyme, Kaluza breaks apart the fundamentals of existing. A compilation that is stringent in polarity and uncertainty, light and dark, fire and water, faith and doubt, Kaluza pieces together an inspiring step-to-step journey about the challenges of navigating the murky nature of ourselves, our encounters with others and our memories, and what it means to be unsure and free in a constantly changing world.
