One thing I really liked about Winter Kill is that even though the author had specific images in his mind when writing (as all authors do), I found something in every single poem that I could relate to in my own way. Whether it be a single line, thought, or a few words scattered upon the page, my heart was touched and moved by the words of Mr. Ness. I especially enjoyed the poems "Awareness," "Youth," "First Snow," and "Living Dead." My favorite poem of all was "Sorrow's Path."
An excerpt from the poem The Winter Kill:
Why is it that we so briefly, quietly live
While the world around us screams
What is our purpose
What is the point of this
We dream of perfection
While the world just wants hope...
In addition to the poems of Alex Ness, there are absolutely gorgeous paintings and drawings by Simon Huelsbeck and Mark Orluck that add to the overall reading experience. Winter Kill is a short book (70 pages) and can be read in one sitting, but do yourself a favor and read it slowly to absorb and reflect on what the author is saying. You'll be glad you did. :)
