I love to connect with a book. When I can smile, laugh, get angry, scared or cry with the writer/poet. When I feel the flow of all that's, given poured into the work, and I'm able to see the poet's soul. That's what I've gotten from Clara B. Ray's Therapy Poetry.

Ray's mastery of language is impressive. I am a lover of words
