Poetry and Pearls is the first volume in a series of Romantic Poetry Collections by N.R. Hart, a heartwarming collection of poems that will delight readers, recalling some of the exquisite emotions and moments of love they have had. The poems are written to reflect the varying seasons of the year, but these seasons are symbolic of the “movements” and “moments” of the heart. Here are poems that explore romantic themes — intimacy, sensuality, giving, emotional freedom, pain and pleasure. Each poem is short, written on a symbolic image. At times they read like a statement, a sudden revelation caught in the hiatus of time.

I loved many of the poems and the way they capture the rich humanity of the poet. Here is one of my favorites:

“Our eyes recognized
each other
the very first time
as if holding secrets
for a thousand lifetimes.”

N.R. Hart is a poet who pays attention to the rhythm of the heart. She writes in the language of intimacy and uses a conversational tone in her poems that will absorb the reader and pull them in powerfully. This is a poet who can “carve” her “initials” into the hearts of her readers with the beauty of her words. The poems are highly emotional — each captures a moment, a gesture; a sign of life, of affection, of desire and longing. Poetry and Pearls is a gorgeous offering for readers who enjoy short poems loaded with insight and witticism. I found most of the poems very enjoyable and could read and feel my heart in most of the lines.
