Small Wonders: Reflective Poems features the poetry and visual images of poet and author, Kaye Lynne Booth in her debut poetry collection.
The world is filled with amazing things, if we will just stop a moment and take notice. In this vast universe, we are but tiny individuals, filled with awe and amazement. From reflections on first love, to reflections on growing old. The poems within these pages express a lifetime of unique reflections in Small Wonders.
“Whether chasing moles in the garden or fantasizing about the life of a cat, Kaye Booth’s poems find playfulness, humor, levity, and often beauty. Small Wonders is a delightful compendium of poetic forms—from pantoums to Shadormas. Each poem is an invitation to see the world with new eyes.”—Rosemerry Wahtola Trommer, author of All the Honey and Hush
Small Wonders lets you creep into Kaye Lynn’s heart and soul to stay there for a while. It’s a comprehensive, personal and eclectic mix of poetry which I really enjoyed.
Kaye Lynn Booth’s poetry collection begins with a lovely forward from fellow author and poet Robbie Cheadle.
So many darn good poems, these are just some of the highlights for me…
Poems to make you smile such as: Angels Among Us, and Two Little Fairie Princesses inspired by the author’s grandaughters.
As well as this, expect thoughtful reflective poems like Intimacy and the Harlequin Dance.
Nature is a theme too, which I love – The Cherry Tree – about nature’s bounty and study some birds in – Birdwatching.
Another topic handled with great understanding is aging given the author’s role as an experienced carer for many years – There Was A Time (reflections on aging.) Welcome To Memory Lane (caring for the elderly.)
Humour is never far away : A Mole In The Garden (the frustration of which I have experienced! Written with relatable humour.) Up There On The Mountain, Alone (this made me laugh too!)
My ‘Vette (how we get attached to our cars, so relatable!)
Emotional/love/loss themed pieces such as:
A Single Heartbeat, Love Lies Bleeding, After Twenty-six Years.
And poems about writing! What’s not to like? Poems such as: My Muse, The Library, What Is Sleep?
Other favourite poems include – Early Morning, Close Your Eyes And Dream, Sun and Shade and Voices.
A highly recommended poetry collection, aptly named.
My rating 5 stars
Many thanks to the author for an ARC copy.
