This book is a wonderful collection of poems and short notes. The poems reflect life today viewed through the eyes of someone who has the ability to step outside the chaos and observe the things that are important. The author reminds us to take time to enjoy the simple things and celebrate the everyday miracles that we sometimes don't notice in our hectic lives. Some of the poems are poignant, some inspirational, and some will make you think. My favourites include Autumn Will, Beautiful Chaos, a ...more

Breathtaking, thoughtful and brilliant. A look into the heart of the poet, with photographs that add to rather than take away from the written word. A writer in love with her life, those in it and conveys a childlike sense of wonder with her pen. She also takes time to consider some of the more serious, less sunny moments and events in life. A terrific collection.

This collected works of poetry follows on from Heather Grace Stewart’s first work ‘where the butterflies go’ and which I found to be just as beautiful and captivating. Those of you who loved her first anthology will not be disappointed as these poems were just as accomplished, fresh and lively that contain much depth of thought and meaning. I was blown away by her direct and poignant messages within that captured my very heart and soul, being completely truth-drawing and emotive. As a firm suppo ...more

I love this collection of poetry by Heather Grace Stewart. The poems, which vary in length and form, touch so many emotions. I laughed at the humour in “Honey-Do List" and enjoyed the number of poems based on social networking; I was moved by the poignancy of “Light Moments” and “Valley”.
The poems that resonated strongly with me were the group which looked at motherhood/childhood. Although my children are adults, I’m revisiting many of these experiences with my young grandchildren - they are suc

After reading Where the Butterflies Go, I was interested to read more of Heather Grace Stewart’s poetry and so next up was Leap, a shorter collection than Butterflies and interesting for the way it moves between the real and online worlds. There are a number of poems in which the author seems to be wrestling with what it means to live in such a socially interconnected time, but as with her other collection my favorites are the poems inspired by parenting since that’s the focus of my life right n ...more

Leap (Heather Grace Stewart)

Once again I was not disappointed in this collection of poems. Ms. Stewart, writes with a passion pen bringing about emotions in each piece.
I would say a few that I really connected with were One Hand, Forever August & So Cool Networking. I recommend to poetry lovers, and those who may be curious about poetry; both Leap & Carry On Dancing by Heather Grace Stewart.

Heather's poems speak to me and make me want to write my own poems! Beautiful, simple insights to be found here.

Book of poetry by a fellow Canadian. Some of it was "meh" and I skimmed it. Other pieces were thought provoking and clever.
