Review By Don Sloan
Every once in a while, a collection of verse is written that has a universal metre — a purity and simplicity that transcends cultures and speaks to everyone, regardless of nationality, sex, creed, or any other differentiator. Only This by Fawn Moran is just such a work.
She imparts inspiration in many of poems, such as in “The Summons:”
“Heed without hesitation / All That Is invites / Your participation./ But don’t look back. / The future you dream of / Isn’t behind you.”
In “Rise,” the message is also uplifting:
“The deeper you go / The higher you will rise. / But don’t be fooled. / There’s much to apprise. / Pain, sorrow, fear, turmoil / Keep you at bay. / Face them before it’s too late. / A life-changing breakthrough is on its way. / The love you’re made of / Will take their place.”
On the subject of love, in “Take a Chance:”
“Love won’t betray you / Or leave you in the dust. / Claim the courage you’ve denied – / Too broken to take a risk / Too angry to try, / Too fearful of failure – / You wouldn’t take a chance. / Courage leads to hidden treasure. / Invite the one who loves you / To share the adventure.”
And, finally, a poem about “Prayer:”
“Prayer isn’t about things you want / Or wish to be. / It’s your ever present longing / For Divinity.”
Five stars for this fine collection of verse, and a heartfelt thanks to the author for committing such sincerity and insight to paper.
