"Moon Full of Moons offers rich material for poetry therapy. The overall concept and structure of the moon's phases as a kind of mythical journey has a wide variety of interesting possibilities and many of the poems touch on themes very salient in a therapeutic setting: lost innocence, despair, mental illness, grief, family, motherhood, love, forgiveness, regaining personal power, experiencing connection with creation, finding happiness." - Journal of Poetry Therapy (2017); 30: 61-62.
"Wonderfully unique...Lehmann is a master of word painting and poem construction." - FIVE STAR review from Readers' Favorite
"there is a heartbeat to these poems, making this a memorable and beautiful collection." - hedgerow: a journal of small poems
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

~The Rebecca Review
I received this book free for review. This review is my honest opinion.
Moon Full of Moons by Kat Lehmann holds echoes of the confessional poetry of Plath or Sexton and a lot of the magic of cummings. She writes breathless love poems to her children and the moon, rivers and trees. The cycle of moon phases is a recurrent theme, almost to the point of being a narrative but this is poetry and you are welcomed into, rather than pulled along by, a growing knowledge of what she's up to here.
She's unfolding a path to recovery from loss of her beloved mother. She's reveling in every moment of discovery her children make in their path to adulthood and independence. She's creating something as beautiful and perfect as anything Plath or even Yeats might have given us.
I feel the flutter of my fingertip-pulse
against the undulations of his breathing.
We are different tempos now,
like syncopation of an erratic jazz.
I press my ear to his chest to hear
his secret drumbeat.
We were one rhythm once,
now we are two.
