I got this book free through Goodreads giveaways.

I enjoyed this collection of poems. As soon as I received the book in the mail I had read it within an hour.

Some of my favorites being: "Little Green Alien," "Mock Orange Evening," "Dreamy Duet," "November," "Through the Past," and "From the Wild." It was the perfect book to read on a cold November evening, on the eve of the first snowfall. F

She talks about every day things like changing weather, love, loss, dreams, rejection, etc. The poems are short and sweet. Would definitely love to read more poetry from this author.

I know the author is also a painter and her writing certainly contains the immediacy of visual art. For someone who loves colour, this autho ...more

While the writing is nice, there was not much length to the poems. This is personal opinion though because I tend to enjoy more in depth poems. The cover is quite lovey and the subjects of the poems are warm.
