The poem I chose for this week’s reading is called Limbs and Leaves. I hope you enjoy it.
A Review, by Gabriela Marie Milton
I met Gabriela Marie Milton, of Short Prose, early last year, and remember vividly the first time I visited Gabriela’s site. I fell in love with Gabriela’s writing, all of it.
Gabriela’s writing stimulates the intellect and engages the heart. I was honored when Gabriela accepted my invitation to review Nature Speaks of Love and Sorrow, and I am deeply grateful for the beautiful words Gabriela uses to describe my book.
Here are a few excerpts from Gabriela’s review of Nature Speaks of Love and Sorrow.
Nature Speaks of Love and Sorrow, by Jeff Flesch, is a superb collection whose pages are saturated with poetic intelligence. The author builds a magnificent correspondence between the natural realm and the spiritual one, without making use of language techniques most symbolists employ(ed), preferring the un-revealed/the unknown to the revealed/the known. In Jeff’s poetry nature does not need any intermediary to speak to the soul and vice versa.
I find it interesting that despite the restorative capacity of nature, and its intimate link with the human soul, the ultimate healing does not come from nature. It comes from time. A change of perspective that adds new depths to Jeff’s book.
Nature Speaks of Love and Sorrow is an astonishing collection. Jeff’s poetry not only delights the soul. Equally it delights the intellect. It is a must have. No one will regret reading it.
I want to thank Gabriela from the bottom of my heart for taking the time to review Nature Speaks of Love and Sorrow. The review is gorgeous, and I would be honored if you would go here, and read the rest of Gabriela’s review. Thank you!
A quick note: I am posting Monday through Friday this week, as I am visiting Justin this weekend, and will be a little less available Saturday and Sunday. I also have some more surprises to share with you about the release of Nature Speaks of Love and Sorrow over the next few days.
In January, I wrote that one of my goals this year was to create and post poetry readings. I’m happy that day has come.
As I looked over the poems in Nature Speaks of Love and Sorrow, Cosmic Arts called to me, so I present to you the first of four poetry readings being posted every Monday in August.
Here is Cosmic Arts, from Nature Speaks of Love and Sorrow.
A Review by Cindy Georgakas
I am also honored to share with you an early review of Nature Speaks of Love and Sorrow by a dear friend and fellow poet, Cindy Georgakas, of Unique Times with Cindy.
I met Cindy about 2 years ago. At that time, I was very new to blogging, and remember seeing Cindy everywhere I went in the blogosphere. Well, it didn’t take long to develop a connection with Cindy, who is an amazing human being, and we’ve been close ever since.
I was honored when Cindy accepted my invitation to review Nature Speaks of Love and Sorrow, and send her my deepest gratitude and love.
Here is an excerpt from Cindy’s heartfelt review.
I remember how I connected with Jeff a couple years back when we met through our blogosphere and I read the comments he left me and others and I was stunned how genuine and caring he was with each of his followers.
You can feel his heart and authenticity through the page as though you were sitting and having tea together or going for a walk.
He makes you feel like you are the most special human in the universe and in fact you are because we all are, in his eyes.
I’m so honored to read these beautiful words, and would be further honored if you would visit Cindy’s blog and read her review of Nature Speaks of Love and Sorrow.
