Reviewed by Divine Zape for Readers' Favorite

Atmospheric, spiritual, and discerningly human, Psalms from the Heart by Barbara Lennon is a splendid collection of poems that capture the outpouring of the soul, the different seasons of her life, the joy and the pain of her humanity, and her ultimate hope. In this collection, the reader is pulled into a powerful wave, music that rises to God. One will find prayers, and candid expressions of a gentle soul to God. They will also find poems that celebrate communion with nature. Other poems showcase the values of love and compassion, of human intercourse, and the beauty of being human.

Barbara Lennon’s poetry celebrates life and compels the reader to develop a sacred consciousness about its different seasons. The lines are simply woven, each pregnant with meaning, each as compelling as the next. Psalms from the Heart has a form of its own, unique and freely flowing from the depths of the persona. The spiritual depth of these poems captured my heart and, as I went through them, I noticed that each had a life of its own — a prayer here, a word of hope there; a gentle sigh here, a sense of awe there; an inspiring memory here, an optimistic look into the future. The simplicity of the language makes the poems very accessible and the symbolism that is written into them is among the interesting elements that readers will appreciate. Here is a collection for readers who are looking for lines that are uplifting and sweet, the kind of poems that communicate life, love, and hope. There is a soothing feel in the poet’s ebullient voice.
