The authors saving grace is the broad blank canvas from which she derives her theme: Love, Misadventure, and Poetry. From both of which, humanity has managed to extract the driest of juices from their fruit, and as such provided LL the opportunity to bring her work to the table.
I enjoyed 'Sundays with Michael' as if provided an insightful glimpse into her life. While that might seem intrusive, I know it's what readers frequently seek.
What I sought however, was poetry of love, and while I discovered that within a couple of her poems, but most of them to be more like brief peck upon the lips as opposed to something that enraptured the palette of my soul.
"He makes me blush! He makes me want to brush and floss!" Girl, I hope he doesn't have a nasty mouth to make you want to clean your own.
In all seriousness though, it just felt like the author did not put as much thought into some poems that they lacked the same depth and maturity as the others. Some of these shallow poems did have potential though. Don't get me wrong, I was still able to very much enjoy this book. The thoughtful, well written poems make this book worth the buy! And I must also mention, the included artwork is delightful!
