As a reader of a great deal of indy poetry (partly to keep tabs on my competition, but mostly for the enjoyment of fresh, un-institutionalized prose), I was pleased with the quality of the work in The Common Ground. The Southerner’s voice and humor are there, as is a deep insight into the human condition that the poet relates honestly and openly. The work is a mix of free verse and rhyming verse, and while I naturally shy away from rhyming verse, I found that a few of the poems sounded better to ...more

An amazing collection of poems that come straight from the author's soul. A highly recommended read!

First off, let me say that I am not a poetry aficionado. Maybe that’s not the word I want. Connoisseur? Better word. And I’m not that, either. But I love poetry nonetheless. I love how it inspires. How little lines evoke a moment, a memory, an emotion.

"The Common Ground" by Noa Daniels was some wonderful poetic journal of this author's "Written thoughts are the avenues into the souls of others, connecting points which provide a common ground of similar experiences, feelings, or discussions.' This author has all of this 'mirrored up for the reader to see their own reflection...captured into poetry.'

I loved how this author was able to present this

I once told a friend that I was an introvert who masquerades as an extrovert. He said that wasn't possible, but I beg to differ.
I think I'm like most people. We all want love and acceptance. Most of us are terrified to put our real selves out there, so we put a safe someone out there to hide behind. And slowly, we allow our real self to ease out and tip toe into new relationships relative to how

“Each poem holds the voice of a moment.
Held within, they are contained, damned to silence;
released, they fly into the world to find a new heart and a new home within,
where they will speak again.”
