I enjoyed reading the innocence of a child missing her mother in "Rare Moments (for my mother, Jane)." The child, like many of us, did not care about much, however it took the loss to make her realize "...that those/Precious moments were rare." In "Listen to Mommy," the poet writes about instances in the past where she wished she had chosen a different way of life. Things like "Stay(ing) close to Jehovah;" and "Hoping it's not too late." The latter resonated with me as I feel some choices I made in the past I realize now came way too late. I also liked the lamentations found in "Re-craft," "Poetry" and "Truth."
I did not enjoy the repetitiveness of the topics; the abusive ex-fiancé who was a thief, the loss of the mother and the unfortunate loss of an unborn child. Reading these made me sad as I went inside my own head with wonderment of if the person hurt would ever be healed? What could I do to help her overcome a life of grief? Toward the end, I realize How to Quench A Thirst Born in the Wilderness was written in the stages of pain, loss and remembrances. This was the healing process. I hope the ache has dulled, but the memory lives as a stepping-stone to move in the direction of happiness. I recommend Ms.Read more ›
This is one of the first poetry books where I was captivated and sympathized with every word that I read of a hurting woman especially seeking for love in all the wrong places. These poetic words sung deeply in my soul (mind and emotions); which made it harder to chose my favorite ones. Finally, I concluded that in the section entitled Celebrate Myself had motivating and encouraging poems to continue to celebrate your feminist side or uniqueness. There were life-altering and life-changing with affirmation poems in which I loved the most: Requiem (p. 148), Midnight Walk (p. 31), and Once Tangled Wings (p. 131). The most compassionate and sensual, somewhat erotic ones were found in Colorful Nights. Overall, the shorter poems touched my mind and heart the most that were enriched with passion, sweetness, and bit of bitterness from past hurts or emotional pains which humankind is able to get a grasp of their own existence. Lastly, some of the selected poems (to my likings) in the section called Creator and Created were geometrically, mathematically interweaves God with His creation so symmetrically how it all aligns to His magnificent being.
