The book is set up into three parts. First, Love Poems, a generous collection of free verse that took my breath away. Part two has side-by-side poems, one in English, the other its Italian translation. And Part three has short prose that honestly, reads like poetry. All of it is sublime.
And none of it should be rushed. I read this collection over two weeks, savoring each offering in the darkness before sleep. A luxurious read for anyone who loves poetry and beautiful words.
Its modern and classical, about how we lived yesterday and how to live tomorrow. There is a huge amount of wisdom within the pages of this book and if you’ll live by the lessons of love taught there, I’m sure, you’ll live a much richer life. Try reading it aloud, with your soulmate or friends… or just by yourself, keeping it closer to bed.
If you are a true poetry lover - don’t wonder and don’t wait - get the book.
"Passions..." is filled with a wide array of poems to suit most any mood. There are also poems translated into Italian, and other short writings in the form of prose poems and flash fiction.
For me, books of poetry are not meant to be read straight through like a novel. I open "Passions..." to a random page every night and read a poem, prose, or flash fiction. Gabriela has a beautiful, intelligent style, weaving words into phrases that leave me pondering various aspects of life in our world as seen through Gabriela's eyes and imagination. She makes it easy to transform her words into images some sad, some happy, some erotic, some fantastic, aways enchanting, and thought-provoking. I highly recommend "Passions: Love Poems and Other Writings". I have not been disappointed by my nightly readings.
But, I also never would have thought I would be reviewing a book of poetry, much less buying one for my enjoyment.
A short while back, a blogger who went by "short-prose-fiction" liked one of the posts on my blog. Looking to see who was visiting, I discovered Gabriela Marie Milton and read a few fragments from some of her poems. Surprisingly, I found they touched me. I loved the images and memories her poems stirred in my mind.
I found myself returning to Gabriela's blog quite regularly to read other snippets of poetry, and I enjoyed them. The next thing you know, I'd ordered her book!
I'm not sure that I would go as far as to say I am now a poetry fanatic, but I have learned something about myself here, and I will have to check out more of this stuff called poetry. And I will be on the lookout for more by Gabriela Marie Milton.
While I am certainly not an expert on poetry, I would give Passions: Love Poems and Other Writings 5 out of 5 stars, if for no other reason than the effect it had on me. And, as far as my limited knowledge of poetry qualifies me to be a critic, I think this is an excellent book of poems and other writings.
