The author of this book of poetry has a flair with words. Like Leonardo with his paintbrush, she eloquently expresses herself and takes the reader on a journey of yearning and love. I could hear her soul singing about missing a lover, the loss of time or youth and even the loss of a parent. There were some that brought out such waves of emotions that I was surprised by them. There are many that made me smile and some that brought a tear to my eye. I hope that others get an opportunity to lose themselves in her soul’s palette.
