intensely honest and unbearably sensitive, a non-thematic 'best of' collection of poems spanning about fifteen years, from the poet's late teens in the 1970s to her early thirties in the 1990s - "scabs and scars blowing across the snow"...

Dreaming of Kaleidoscopes Reviews
This is a collection of poems from the author's life. They span about 15 years from the author's teenage years to her early thirties. The book is divided into four sections, but I think I would have preferred the poems to have been arranged by date (the author includes the year that each was written). I feel I get a bit more of a sense of the author when I realize that a poem was written in her teens versus her twenties, etc. You can see some of her development. I am not a huge reader of poetry so I don't really know how to analyze her poems, but overall, I enjoyed reading this collection. I liked some of her teenage angst poems like "i hurl my screams" and "a rush of flames" and her poems about striving to be an artist like "portrait of the artist, struggling." I think we can all identify with that feeling of whether we can be successful in what we do. I won this copy in one of the Goodreads giveaway contests.
