One person’s thoughts turned into words, only you can judge the inspiration.

 

I’ve chosen to review both of Ms. Sefler’s books of poetry at one time, simply because my feelings are the same for each.  Within either book you may find something that encourages you.

 

I must have been the only one in all my high school English classes that couldn’t wait for the poetry session to start.  My one problem, I never did read a poem like everyone else did – I never knew what the author meant; only what I felt.

 

For me that is the beauty of poetry.  Not deciphering the author’s meaning, but finding my own.  That’s the magic in poetry…the inspiration.

 

To due Ms. Sefler justice I would have to take a year of reading each poem over and over.  Let each have their own time, their own day…savouring each as a wine connoisseur would a fine wine.  But I don’t have that much time.

 

“Through the Ages” contains more poems that ‘speak’ to me than “The Sun is Hot” but again that’s a subjective opinion.  Both books ‘speak’ of the search for meaning we all take at some point in our lives.  Some of the poems flow very easy; well others are a little jagged.  I also found a few a little too strong regarding God…almost preachy.

 

However, all poems will find a fit with anyone who is looking upwards for someone/thing to believe in and for those who trust their own faith.

 

I’m pleased to have these books in my collection to turn to and discover a new thought.
