Whispers of Dreams -- A Poetic Collection by Alexia Purdy
By Alexia Purdy
Like I said, I dont read poetry, I simply dont like it.
But these poems, some of them I did get. A long time ago a woman asked me to review her poetry book.
I tried to get out of it by saying I would not know how to begin to review a poetry book.
Her response... if you are alive you will understand poetry that is about the living.
I took her advice reluctantly but now I can say forsure I do get her advice.
Poetry is an extremely personal journey.
It is not the intent of the poet but the reader that determines if a poem will or will not speak to an individual.
All in all, I am really glad I picked up this collection.
