Tonight I finished reading the “Women Are Some Kind of Magic” poetry series by Amanda Lovelace. It finishes with this beautiful purple collection called “The Mermaid’s Voice Returns In This One”.
While it was full of wonderful poetry by Amanda, and pieces contributed by other poetresses, it was not my favourite collection. I found with this one only a few of the poems spoke to me. Maybe because of where I am in my own life journey right now, maybe because I just couldn’t relate. Maybe in a few years they’ll jump off the pages at me.
My favourite poetry book in this collection that did speak out to me, was “The Witch Doesn’t Burn In This One”, the second book in the poetry series.
A lot of the poems in “The Witch Doesn’t Burn In This One” really ignited a fire in my soul. They were beauty in a way that I cannot describe.
These books were all full of beautiful poems that I cannot describe.
