I’m not a huge fan of poetry, I rarely read it and can’t write it to save my life but having said that my niece who writes exceptional poetry has piqued my interest enough that when I saw this book I wanted to dip in and see what it’s about.
I will probably never be an ardent fan of poetry, but I did enjoy many of the poems within these pages and felt as though I got a glimpse into the author’s soul more than I would from prose.
My First Time Windsurfing – although a totally different sport it made me think of when I jet ski and the freedom I feel.
The Poet – really felt as though I got a glimpse of the author/poet herself in this one.
Sitting on a Hilltop – a great reminder to us all and particularly apt for all authors.
Halfway there – Inspiration
The Necklace – Lovely analogy of life
Sea and Simplicity – A reminder of life
Power of Words – Poignant
“Harsh words are often used to fight,
Cruel words hurt when used in spite.
Sad words draw blood that is crystal clear,
Bright words fill a heart will cheer.
(If you want to read more of this poem I recommend you purchase this sweet little book of poetry)
I am – Beautiful
“I am the crystal that reflects the light.
I am the star that can shine very bright.
I am the rain, when the clouds shed tears.
I am the courage that ends the fears.
(Again you will need to purchase to read on.)
This poet/author’s poems are simple and sweet and carry little reminders about what is important in life. I would certainly pick up more by her.
