Part of this author’s life had been spent living day/night in a Zen Buddhist Temple which becomes quite apparent as one reads the carefully selected words contained in each poem. This is not the kind of book you can rush through, even though there’s only one poem on each page.
The various poetry items contained here need to absorbed into your mind, and if any emotions start to appear, then you must listen to your heart and meditate on whatever you’re happen to be feeling at that moment so it can become real for you.
For trying to create some clarity in someone’s life I’m giving Ms. Kent 5 STARS, I only wish the collection of poetry would have been larger.
Slices of Soul started off just like I described above. The author musing by herself:
Starting with The Shaved Head collections, it seemed like the author was just reminiscing with herself, just she and herself, not letting anyone in.
Then came the Short Hair collections, and things started to lighten up a little. She started letting in, even if very slightly, outsiders. She started sharing her thoughts with others, a little at a time.
By the time she came to the Long Hair collections, she had blown herself wide open. Even I could now follow her thoughts.
With Neither Here Nor There , she started closing back up again, but allowing occasional light in, and then on and on.
I cannot say that I understood everything about these poems, or that I have analyzed them correctly, but from the standpoint of a novice, those were my take on them.
