L.J. Diaz – Catching Snowflakes
This is just a gorgeous collection of poetry. From the opening pages of Catching Snowflakes, poet LJ Diaz sets the stage for lost love and emotion. Each poem is its own little story, and while some poems are shorter and only a few lines, they say so much to the reader. Other poems are just a bit longer and read like short stories, such as “Saved for Last” and “House of Jupiter.” Here and there, the author has placed illustrations and drawings to match a poem or feeling, which makes the book quite unique. The overall mood of sorrow is done well, and the moon, sun, and astral themes are evident throughout. With bold and beautiful lines like “Paint me the color of night/Of snow twinkling in sunlight,” the author’s talent shines through and bursts from the page.

Tracy Seiden – Moon Kissed Musings
Seiden’s poetry evokes strong images that resonate within you, whether it is the bittersweet memory of a past lover or simply a feeling of completeness. Her words often reflect the connection between people and nature, thus conveying the idea that perhaps all of us are a part of something larger than ourselves. Just what exactly that may be is up for debate, although I have a strong feeling that it might be love.

Raja Williams – Imprints in the Sand
Raja Williams has a gift for describing the pain and confusion people experience when not attuned to themselves and not possessing self-knowledge or real understanding. I particularly loved “Some Day” – a poem about enlightenment, awakening, and finding yourself: an astonishing moment when “We will greet each other And our hearts will know Our journey has just begun…” I love the wisdom in her words too. For example, the way life will turn us upside down from time to time in order to remind us how to live the right way up.
