Then the poems in The Charcoal in the Dust are for you!
To stitch the stars
To make a quilt of dreams
To plan the night of fire where only the light intervenes
The nectar to begin
What chance made the seal
Without the rungs imitation lays upon the crooked road
Where thought overtakes
And footsteps follow with ease
I enjoy reading all types of books but hold a special place in my heart for poetry. I feel that it takes a special talent to invoke emotion in a reader with a few well chosen sentences. The author did this with each of her well written, thought provoking poems.
With each of the poems in The Charcoal in the Dust you are provided a glimpse into the life and circumstances the author endured. What has she seen and experienced to write such passionate and painful words but still leave you with a feeling of inspiration?
I would recommend this book of poetry to anyone who loves to read poems written from the heart and soul of the author. I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
