Title: Silence of Islands - Poems | Author: W.M. Raebeck | Genre: Poetry/Adult Non-Fiction Publisher: Hula Cat Press | Release date: July 2020
Book Description: Poetry for the summer day, poetry for the dark night. Poems that cut a walkable trail through the forest of life. Always with a nudge and a wink, “It’ll be okay.” This collection reflects a lifetime of nature, love, travel, death, joy, art, family, and the eternal questions. A potion of emotion to soothe and move you.
Some of my favorite poems in this collection include "Close Friends" -- a hilarious web of people, interconnected through place, love and circumstance, "Boats" -- a bittersweet memory of life before tourists on an island in Greece and "Romance" -- a reminder of that wonderful feeling of new love. From love and loss to hope and happiness, this collection touches on so many emotions, both wonderful and difficult, that we experience in the moments in life.
The sense of place is especially powerful in these wonderful poems. Absorbed in the writing, it's a little surprise at the end where the author includes the date and place where the poem was written, to discover where you have just been. And it was a real joy to visit all of these amazing places, especially when I couldn't get there myself.
