Postcards from the Line of Demarcation by Branch IsoleThis small book of poetry a win from Goodreads First Reads Giveaway, is a wonderful delightful experience. (reading poetry always is an experience I think) Reviewing poetry is difficult because we all have different tastes and preferences.
Several of the poems stirred my conscience and reminded me of mistakes I had made in my life, things that I have regretted.
Other poems resonated with things I see and feel that I thought I was unique in feeling. For example When In ...Jr.High brings to mind a way that we, as a society, seem to more and more allow students in the name of freedom to not accept responsibiity for their actions and choices.
Other poems were sad, the saying goodbye to someone who has passed on, such as Rest in Peace.
Several poems proved to have a humorous touch such as Mute Blind Spot which really reflects how many times we just cant communicate with others although we think we are.
One favorite was Three Year Trip and the only comment I will make about that is that the end of the poem made me stand up, take notice, and feel a sense of grattitude.
Grave Situation is simply a beautiful prayer, drawing me back to it.
Reviewing poetry in some ways is like reviewing ice cream flavors.
But sometimes we grab a tasty dessert from the grocery freezer to be consumed immediately and at others we enjoy that trip to Friendlys or Baskin Robbins to make it an experience.
Branch Isoles book, for me, is like a Baskin Robbins or Friendlys Visit, with lots of different flavors to try and to savor.
