Reviewed by Karen Pirnot for Readers' Favorite

In Wings of the Wind, A Cornucopia of Poetry, author Kym Gordon Moore has offered the reader a variety of poetic thoughts and styles in a book of deep thought and inspiration. The poetry is divided into eight chapters which depict ideas of freedom, activity, hope, celebration, nature, rhythms, yesteryear and the flavors of life. The author writes in free form as well as in traditional, more restricted forms such as Limerick, Iambic Pentameter and Haiku. Those wanting to find excellent examples of these forms would do well to pick up the book and study the creative manner in which the author has used the various forms.

Wings of the Wind had several favorites for me. Moore writes of "Living with Purpose," "A Victim's Gift" and "Unveiling Deception," all poems in which the personal soul is explored to considerable depth. There are messages which encourage the reader to remember and respect the past and to reach out to friends when all seems hopeless. I loved the honesty of the poetry and the fact that the author did not hold back on personal thoughts and feelings. "Dance at My Funeral" was such an earthy, honest verse that you would almost swear the author was speaking directly to her friends and that you as the reader simply overheard the conversation. This is a lovely short book which will inspire some and get others thinking about the direction of their own lives. And then, there is the final tribute to the author's mother which is reflective, simple and beautiful.
