wow-logo

I am honoured to be part of the WOW! Women of Writing Blog Tour for Valerie Nifora’s poetry book I Asked the Wind, which I read and am now reviewing.

(Please note: I received a free copy in exchange for my honest review.)

 

My Review:

Valerie Nifora has given us a heartfelt, powerful series of poems, written over 15 years, that lays bare her love and heartbreak.

From the very first poem – “I Love You. Eternal”, we are drawn into the images and sensory of each poem.
There is heartache; there is love; there is so much sharing from the depths of her soul – not only of pain, but of what love can truly be.

I was very moved by Nifora’s poems. And, I know you be as well.

I recommend this book of poetry by Valerie Nifora.

About I Asked the Wind

Book Summary

 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.
