Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Over the years, I have written a lot of poetry.  It has been a way to paint how I see the world around me.  Instead of using a brush and watercolors or oil, I have used words to express the many emotions and experiences of life.  Some of the poems are carefree, some are sentimental, some are filled with hurt and fear and some are observations of the beauty around us that we often miss, but they are the realities and memories we all face and cherish as we walk the road of life.   I found that writing down my thoughts and feelings made the bad times better, and the good times cherished memories.  I wrote a lot during my fight with cancer and during my recovery. My writing served as a catharsis to help me cope with the issues that I faced.

PULSE POINTS OF A WOMAN'S WORLD: GLOBAL VERSES BEYOND GENDER AND RACE AND TIME
By Dr. Aman Kay*

The poetry of Sylvia Ramsey sometimes feels like the reflection of a dawn's breeze in a field filled with butterflies and little birds.  The lines and stanzas carry the reader through images and infinite memories that sooth the soul: "The warm glow of a pot-bellied stove ice cream made/of fresh fallen snow,/soft pillows of down/In beds piled high with comforts and quilts,/tucked safe in a world of soft eider-down" (p. 21).

At times Ramsey's poetry shares lines presenting their commendable poetic values that echo a philosophical notion that will lead the reader to a world of wonders: "Memory returns to a time when a wish was made . . ." (p. 31); or "With long melancholy silences . . ./the child-world has come of age" (p. 61); or "Words can be like daggers/that slash and cut the soul,/Leaving jagged cuts with unhealthy/scars that take their toll" (p. 67); or "Feeling lonely is an empty cold sky/before the sun raises its sleepy head" (p. 76).

There is an invisible and yet powerful sincere presence that brings comfort and pleasure to the reader.  This presence becomes particularly magical throughout the love poems that convey the ancient component of an honest heart: "I yearn for shades of darkness/to hurry south to bring the one/Whose touch fills me with such warmth/it melts the shards of ice thereon . . ." (p. 41).
Ramsey's poetry ventures beyond time and space, gender and race, and above all the human-built boundaries.  These poems open the doors and windows into far and hidden corners of every day's fear and hope while maintaining the same invisible sincerity and creative principle: "As time creeps, and crawls/at a turtle's wearisome space/Fearing my heart will be splintered/by a demon's lightning flash . . ." (p. 81); "Let me love/though love/may go unrequited,/An empty heart is much heavier/than a stone . . ." (p.93).

If you read and reread Ramsey's poetry, you, too, will be whispering "Love, faith,/and laughter . . ./Armed/with these three gifts,/I need not fear/tomorrow, nor, tomorrow . . ." (p. 93).

Format: Paperback
This book of poetry that is divided into sections that is very much like our walk through life and it reminds us that we all share many of the same fears, hopes and dreams. Something about this book is also powerfully healing. Perhaps it is the expression or evocation of emotions that most of us were taught to ignore and deny. Perhaps it is the absence of vengance. It is a beaautiful book in words and illustrations. I'm going to give it to friends.

The poetry in this book is fantastic. It can easily be applied to the hardships and life stages that we women face. It is also easy to read, not complex like a lot of poetry is. I came back to buy a few more for Christmas gifts for the women in my life.
