Poetry in Motion by Glenda Higgins is a thought-provoking collection of poetry that will make you stop and think about your past relationships and experiences and embracing the future. Each of the poems covers the different human emotions we can experience in our lifetime. Many people go through life stuck in an emotional rut, and do not know how to move forward emotionally and positively. These warm and inviting poems will shed light on the emotions you feel in troubled times, but will also motivate you to have the courage to walk through life with love, confidence and embrace your own life journey.
I have read many books of poetry, but this is much more than a collection of poems. I found so many inspiring words of wisdom in this book that I have written them in my journal as motivational mantras. For instance, in Story teller Toes, ‘Would it make more sense. To shut down shop. And never give out. And never to know. What to grow through’. My interpretation of this is to never give up, to keep striving towards your dream. Again in Clarity, ‘Life’s truth disguised as muddled times’. This poem really spoke to my subconscious. Glenda has a unique and exceptional creative talent. She sees such beauty in the world and within the human personality.
These poems will touch the most hardened of hearts but will need to be read over and over again to gain the wonderful and meaningful message within. In the poem Barefoot Along The Edges, the question is asked, ‘How can I glitter without an edge?’ I now have a clear understanding of how to achieve that. If you have never read a book of poetry before then this has to be your first. Outstanding work and highly recommended.

About the Author
Glenda spent her early work in libraries – ten years in various positions, including cataloguing, which launched her on a favorite pastime of reading everything under the sun.
Her start as a poet surprised her. She took a poetry-writing course. Two hundred poems wrote themselves in a furious manner, in two weeks. This led to performing poetry in cafes and on the radio and about three hundred more poems.
