From the Back Cover
"Empty moons and waxing crescents, moons that heal and moons that throw poems, Moon Full of Moons illuminates the seasons of our lives with the bemused light of night sky's pearl orb. Silver language that touches your heart on every page. You'll never look at moonbeams in the same way again."- Dr. SunWolf, Professor (Santa Clara University), attorney, poet, author of Peer Groups (Sage) and God-Thinking (LexisNexis), whose newest course is "The Science of Happiness".
"Kat's poems are vivid and alive. So physical, I can see them. Rocks and brooks, and sunshine through the trees. These poems are a conversation with nature and with one self. They invite the reader to listen in." - Natasha Badhwar, Film-maker, writer and design entrepreneur, based in New Delhi
"Kat's writing warms up my soul like a cup of tea on a cold winter day. Her words have a way of wrapping themselves around you and giving you exactly what you need to hear, exactly when you need to hear it." - Erin McLean, farmer, Lakefield, Ontario
"Kat's sensitivity in writing always blows me away. She reaches the heart directly, often piercing the exact parts that I thought I had a shield on." - Visha Suchde, poet and entrepreneur, Mumbai
"In Moon Full of Moons, Kat weaves a blanket of life's seasons in her poems and patterns them with the phases of moon. Her poems not just open your heart, but also your eyes." - Subhashini, author of From the Anklets of a Homemaker and Maya's Garden Song, Bangalore

For an example of Lehmann’s use of the ordinary and personal to give you, her reader, an experience, turn to Peach. “A peach is always eaten on its own terms.”
This happens again in Alive.
In Orion the Hunter we find this: “You are an illusion – / a Rorschach test /revealing the values of others. /Your lights will extinguish / like birthday candles /when Nature makes a wish.” This poem is far more complex (and beautiful) than this short quote can possibly reveal. Buy the book and turn to this one.
In The Language of Lines: “Wrinkles /like furrows worn by stream beds, /overlap like tales written in the dark. /Fragments of lines are experience to be read /like a book broadly open for sharing.” Again, this is a sample of a fine experience delivered into your mind and gut.
Again, in Family Photos: “Family is sweetness around me, like apple /on my solid core. /Looking at photographs – /slices of days, /captured /and flattened /like roses.”
For a surprise ending, turn to Unspinning the Earth.
In House for Sale you will find an amazing metaphor. This happens again in My River.
My notes include many other favourites. Hopefully I’ve given you an insight into what this book did to me.
Normally I have boilerplate here about how I come up with a star count, so here goes: my personal guidelines, when doing an ‘official’ KBR review, are as follows: five stars means, roughly equal to best in genre. Rarely given. Four stars means, extremely good. Three stars means, definitely recommendable. I am a tough reviewer. Lehmann is a very fine poet. Put up beside Robert Frost (The Lovely Shall Be Choosers), e.e.cummings (Tumbling hair; O purple finch), H.D. (The Helmsman), Margaret Atwood (Projected Slide of an Unknown Soldier) Lehmann is indeed ‘roughly equal to best in genre.’ I try hard to be consistent, and for me five stars is a clear and easy decision. Highly recommended.

“It is the move behind existing that starts living”
My highlights are poems Peach and House for Sale.
The circle of life all in one volume, Moon Full of Moons is an enjoyable read and my review just doesn’t do it justice.
