You are here: Tom Mach’s Poetry
Tom Mach is no stranger to poetry, having been published in Tallgrass Voices, Parnassus Magazine, Eternal Echoes (Poetry Press), and Dreams (Poetry Press) and is a frequent contributor to the Poet’s Showcase in the Lawrence Journal World.
One of his poems was a finalist in a Writer’s Digest Poetry competition. He came in 9th (out of 3,000 contestants) with the following poem:
The Uni Verse is a collection of poems divided into three sections: Part One–Song of Beginnings; Part Two–Song of the Solar System; Part Three–Song of the Earth. It contains both rhymed and unrhymed poems dealing with various awe-inspiring aspects of our universe. The Uni Verse won the 2008 Nelson Poetry Book Award from the Kansas Authors Club. The Uni Verse came from his research on Walt Whitman in writing his historical novel All Parts Together. “Whitman’s Leaves of Grass,” Mach says, “spoke volumes on the human condition and on the tenacity of the human spirit.” (The Uni Verse is available both in print as well as in an eBook version.)
