Book Review : Life Lines, Poems from a Reflection

Life Lines: Poems from a Reflection by Sue Vincent. A beautiful read.
ISBN 9781910478066

I read this collection of over fifty poems, at random, reading several aloud to Hubby as we’d settle down for the night. He particularly liked Bedwyr’s Song and Odin’s Ravens.
I could share in the dawns and sunsets, feel the love, loss and yearning, smile at the gentle humour of Drink the Dawn, and identify with A Mother’s Hands as my own are so like my mother’s.  I felt the sadness of Flowers, dreams of memories, but it was Rombald’s Moor that left the biggest mark, the sense of home and belonging was overwhelming.
Poems from a reflection is a perfect title as although we may see the same things at a precise moment in time, we interpret them differently. Like the dawn and sunset, each is unique, as are we, but Sue’s personal thoughts are captured here for us to read again and again, each time perhaps seeing something new.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
