Dragonfly Book Review

I want to drop into your eyes and catch the wind from your childhood, tear a chunk from my soul and plant it in your garden, hang paper lanterns from your sky, climb into your deepest well and touch the holy water lightly with the back of my hand. Then I'll think about what to make for lunch.

I love to read poetry. There are a lot of different types out there, and a lot of different ways to interpret it.

Ed Piolla's style is a little different then what I normally read.

Some of his poems I could feel, and re late too. Others left me going HUH??

The Lake is my favorite. It reminds me of my childhood. It is a short poem, but one I could compare myself too.

"I have walked this neck of the woods before, years ago. I know this neck of the woods and the mighty silver lake tucked deep within the green. This lake, as the heat of summer winds down, is more beautiful than me.

I love this lake. It makes magic. This lake loves me. This lake allowed me to walk on the surface of her water to the center of her blue lagoon, where I plunged in.

And came out baptized."

I give this book 3 out of 5 stars.

You can get your own copy on Amazon for $9.99
