Synopsis for I Asked the Wind

I Asked the Wind: A Collection of Romantic Poetry is a journey into romance, love and loss through poetry. The poems published in this collection span over 15 years of writing. Often starting with short rhythmic patterns, each poem’s lyrical tone is filled with inspired words to express the deep emotion experienced in the intricacies of romance.

Handwritten in a journal and hidden away until this publication, the poems chronicle the journey into and out of love. Written in three parts, the book enables the reader to transverse the intensity of romantic love, from the first moment of falling in love, to the intense pain of heartbreak.

Beautiful and powerful in its lyrical and simple verse, the reader is immediately immersed in a world of sensuality, passion, desire, and innocence; all woven together into a tapestry of human emotion. Each poem transports the reader to a story through the art of poetry. Drawing on natural elements such as the sun, sand, wind and moon, this collection explores the light and darkness of romantic love, leaving the reader questioning if love was ever real at all

Review for I Asked the Wind

What better way to promote a poetry love book than on Valentine’s?  I love poetry.  And anyone who has been in love, has been through heartbreak as well (well, pretty much everyone).  I love the way the poems have been written.  So fluid.  So real.  Please, pick up the book, and get lost in the contents!

A Light in the Attic by Shel Silverstein

Who has not read A Light in the Attic by Shel Silverstein? I bet you cannot name one person who has not read this wonderful book.

Synopsis

A Light in the Attic delights with remarkable characters and hilariously profound poems in a collection readers will return to again and again.

Here is the attic you will find Backward Bill, Sour Face Ann, the Meehoo with an Exactlywatt, and the Polar Bear in the Frigidaire. You will talk with Broiled Face, and find out what happens when Somebody steals your knees, you get caught by the Quick-Digesting Gink, a Mountain snores, and They Put a Brassiere on the Camel.

Come on up to the attic of Shel Silverstein and let the light bring you home.

I remember reading this book when I was a child, and would laugh at all of the silly poems that was told. Thirty years later, I picked it up again, and I laughed again. Reading some of my favorite poems to my husband while we sat outside and enjoyed the sun.

Reading the A Light in the Attic brought me back to my childhood, and helped me escape the chaos, and put a smile on my face.

If you would like the feeling of your childhood, please, pick it up, and read it in your fort, in the playground, or even just outside with your family and share the silly poems.
