I read this ebook today while I was eating breakfast. The cover and title may lead you to think this an erotic book. Actually it is a tasteful collection of poetry. There are expressions about love, life and relationships, but nothing I would call explict. Here is a sample verse from the title poem.

My hands reach out in water
grasping for the soul of the sea.
I reach out the way a fish breathes
inspired by the trying,
satisfied for moving closer
to knowing the flow around me.

I like Belinda's style ..

A Simple Poems and a deep One Too .

I Like this One So Much ..
" No absolute ..
The sound of the human voice
like the bell ring of metal
and crisp air under grey skies—
romantic yet ominous—
Don’t worry about contradictions.
No one is innocent.
No one is guilty.
We are all misunderstood
even by ourselves.
Yet when we know love
we know everything. "

Simply I Like it .

The title would suggest something other than what this is--a collection of poetry. This was a short read, with poems about life, how we live, and how we affect those around us. Of course, this is my opinion only. Poetry is like art: Everyone sees/reads it differently.

My favorite poem in this collection was "No Absolutes," especially the line about "we are all misunderstood, even by ourselves." Too true.

You can read it right now on GR!

well, I'm sorry but this one just wasn't for me. I didn't like the poems- they simply didn't speak to me.

The photos were okay but I've seen better, and for some reason I was left simply annoyed.

Maybe poetry is just not for me...

Terrible, terrible and just plain terrible. The photography was poor and didn't connect with the poetry itself and the poetry lacked images to keep you connected to what the author was trying to convey.

Wet Moments by - Belinda Subramam. The front cover of this book, makes it seem like its going to be all about sex, but its actually not. I like how the author wrote the poems that connected through nature and lust at the same time. At times, some of the poems got me wondering like: "what does this mean?" I thought this poem book was good, but could have been longer. I would give kudos for strong, meaningful mood, and effort throughout the authors style of writing poems. In my language art class ...more

Wet Moments - by Belinda Subraman
When I first saw the cover of this book I thought it was about sex and romance. To my surprise it was a beautiful collection of poetry. The colorful selection of words wrapped with pictures of black and white, made this book an interesting read. The poems that stood out to me were “Zen Sex” and “No Absolutes”.

The cover and title of the book make me think this an erotic thoughts. But, This is a collection of short poems about human emotion with some beautiful photography by "Cheryl Townsend".

My favorite poem: "Dog Day Afternoon", "Sensations II", "No Absolutes", and "Quantum Friends".

Wet Moments was simple but colorful.

Quantum Friends

Awakened by wind,

thirsty and mystified

by the worm holes of truth. If atoms are probability patterns effected by relationships then truly we infuse

objects with meaning.

A keepsake is a bridge

to the inner and outer worlds. The sensations we feel

sitting next to a friend or stranger

is the reading of energy through shared atmosphere and atoms.

Our friends through cables and computer screens

are as real as the light and sound waves

we alter th

Just a really short collection of poetry. Not altogether that good, in my opinion, minus one poem near the end that caught my attention, and I used a quote from it on my profile page. Some of the photography is much better than the poems. Subraman seemed to be trying to be a little bit too mystical at times. So... if you really like poetry, you should read it; if you don't, don't waste your time.

Ok.. this is a collection of poetry.. I thought it was erotica.. guess who was surprised ;)
anyway.. Not a lot of these poems spoke to me the way they did to others but I liked the majority of them. Some made no sense to me but there were a few that even if the whole poem didn't sit with me, a few verses did. All in all it was nice

I find Poetry very interesting,though sometimes some poems made me wonder what she was talking about.I loved the way the background had pictures,The front cover of the book made it seem like it was going to be an erotic book but it wasn't,which is good.I love Dog Day Afternoon,Wet moments and The sensations poems.Come to think of it,they were all awesome.Good stuff.

Recommends it for: anyone who enjoys poetry and photography
This was a free e-book that I stumbled across and the cover grabbed my attention. It's a short collection of poems and some beautiful photography. I actually enjoyed the photography more then the poetry, none of it really spoke to me, but that's the way with poetry isn't it. :0) I did like "the ancient Indian metaphor" though, very well put.

This was a nice quick little read of poems. My favourites were Quantum Friend and No Absolutes. :)

The two stars do not mean it was bad, just that it was short and not my normal kind of read. But I liked it.

Don't let the cover fool you; there's not sex.

These poems are short and sweet in a thoughtful way. It's mostly about nature and human emotion.

It's quick to read, but it will make you stop and reflect about life.

Hmmm.. No.

The layout of the ebook was terrible, and took forever to load.
Some of the photographs were fascinating, but..
And the poems didn't really blow me away.

But it wasn't long, so it wasn't THAT a waste of time.

The only poem interesting is 'No Absolutes'. Rest all are not that great. The contents are not at all erotic as the cover page so don't pick up this book if you think otherwise :) ;)

Hooked by the name and the cover photo, I was pleased to find the poetry inside is also erotic but stylishly and delicately so.
