Nature Speaks of Love and Sorrow: A Review, by Jaya Avendel

I am honored to share another advanced review with you, of Nature Speaks of Love and Sorrow, by Jaya Avendel, of Nin Chronicles.

I met Jaya last summer sometime, and have been an avid reader ever since. Jaya uses language in ways that invite the reader to continuously ponder meaning, and the ways in which we construct the realities we hold about life. The poetry and prose are stunning.

I was honored when Jaya agreed to complete an advanced review of Nature Speaks of Love and Sorrow.

Here are a few excerpts from Jaya’s stunning review.

The poetry of Jeff is undulating and emotional. It explores love and loss and remembrance. It explores the nature of memory and the sweetness of life. Every word is intentional and every line sinks deep into the heart as the imagery of each poem takes hold and bursts into being.

From the moment I started reading this book, I was reminded of a quote by Cicero.

“If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need.” ~ Cicero

If you have Nature Speaks of Love and Sorrow, you will have both a library and nature at your fingertips. You will find the flora and fauna of nature delicate and raw in this book, and the library of written emotions and experiences poignant and healing.

I recommend Nature Speaks of Love and Sorrow to any lover of nature and all lovers of poetry. It is a powerful and vivid collection you will enjoy poem by poem again and again.

I would be honored if you would go here, and read the rest of Jaya’s review of Nature Speaks of Love and Sorrow. Thank you! 

I would like to thank Jaya from the bottom of my heart for completing this gorgeous review.
