Heart Songs, The Collected Poems of Nina Serrano (1969-1979)

Heart Songs: The Collected Poems of Nina Serrano, 1969-1980
, was first published by Editorial Pocho Che, a Latino literary collective, as part of a three-book 10th anniversary series.  The other two books were Raul Salinas’ now classic Un Trip through the Mind Jail y Otras Excursions and Roberto Vargas’s legendary  Nicaragua Yo To Canto Besos  Balas  y Suenos de Libertad.  Estuary Press republished it as an ebook.

The new technology has allowed the print book and its poems to live on. As a bonus, not a single tree is sacrificed at the altar of the WORD. I wrote the poems in Heart Songs during my first decade as a poet having come to poetry relatively late at age 34.

In those times, I was raising a family, supporting a revolution in Nicaragua and seeing its triumph, supporting the anti-Vietnam war movement, defending minority rights, as the minorities were swelling in California to today’s majority,  fighting for women’s rights and our place in the sun, going through a martial break-up, and being a single woman again.

Today I am a great grandmother. Though my voice may reflect time’s changes, I still support my former poet self, her struggles and her poetry.  I offer Heart Song’s to today’s digital readers to illuminate those times and express universal feelings.
