From the author of Motherhood: The Crucible of Love, comes an exciting new poetic release, cold. Untamed Beauty.

Follow cold through frigid winter plains and thawing spring lakes, into summer community and autumn splendor. Life where negative degree temperatures lurk on the horizon can be oppressive, especially when the only recourse to the confinement is screaming into the wind-but it's too cold and the sound is choked in your throat. Life in North Dakotan cold is dangerous, especially with children, but even so, there is beauty in all its power, and, in unexpected places, hope.

From the back cover:

cold isn't always winter,

but winter is always cold.


If only we had trees

Instead of houses to

Block the wind.

Maybe we could go

Outside without the

Fear of dying.

Minus fifty below

Is like standing in the

Middle of a fire-

A cold fire of

Snow and

Ice and


That burns.

From Hear Our Voice Publishing: Dominique writes poetry for people who don't like poetry; she captures the moment in words and makes you feel. This work is about weather, place, temperatures, seasons, all of that, yes. But isn't it also about hearts, assumptions, preconceptions, stereotyping, and seeing beyond the visible to the unseen? We certainly hope you enjoy the encounters with being winter housebound, thawing spring, summers filled with people, the wild breath of fall, and lessons in life that anyone, despite their location on the map, will appreciate. We hope you are moved to search for what's deeper inside each one of us, that this work will enlarge the reader's experience. Although our publishing company hails from South Carolina, we thought that this taste of cold would be invigorating. We hope you enjoy cold. Untamed Beauty.

Dominique M. Snedeker lives with her husband and children in Minot, North Dakota, the perfect backdrop for writing poetry.

Keep an eye out in spring 2023 for the next installment, Motherhood: Empire of Lost Toys and Mismatched Socks.
