I prefer novels to poetry, but this book of poems had some poignant prose that made me stop and think about the meaning. Like the Psalms, there is a story within the lines. This book was divided into four parts, like "themes." I particularly enjoyed parts 2-4. My favorite poems were Offering, Matins, and Adjusting the Darkness. If you enjoy poetry that includes family, faith, and memories, you'll enjoy this collection of poems by Penny J. Johnson.
