Book Description:

When we hear a poem, we may recognize certain patterns of rhythmic flow—a beat or rhyme, but

not all poems have a standard prose and not all poets are alike; a mind filled with constant words

and images, thoughts and sensation—poems of long proses.

Poetry is poetry.

Then there are poems that are short, brief and to the point, but so much power exudes from just a

couple of words.

Poetry is poetry.

Just as art is universal, poetry is in the eye of the beholder. This book includes rhythmic poems, micro-poems, and passionate poems—set to stir emotions and feelings in the reader.

Not everything in life can be planned or placed in order from A to Z, but this book also includes inspirational poems for each letter of the alphabet for those small moments, when you just need a tiny bit of order in the middle of chaos. Flip to a letter and you will see, the wonders that can be.

Meet the Author: 

Gaudys Laxury is a visionary autodidact artist, writer, and poet. She studied politics, law, and communications during her graduate years, while incorporating her passions for creative arts.

As an artist, Gaudys learned to be open and creative. As a writer, she learned that words are the gateway to communicate and inspire lives. As a poet, Gaudys learned the subtleties and transformative discipline of the arts — the power to bring words together and unify on an abstract and metaphorical level; to make us think to the highest virtue.

The first book written by Gaudys, The Pearl inside the Orchid, was designed to inspire, channel emotions, and connect readers on a deeper and spiritual level. Life From A to Z is her second book, which reflects an expression of life, relationships, and inspirations. Both books have been dedicated to her family and muses.

Book review: Oswald: Return of the King


Oswald: Return of the King
(The Northumbrian Thrones #2)

Three years ago (already!!), I presented here Edwin: High King of Britain. I really enjoyed it. So when Oswald: Return of the King became available on Netgalley, I requested it, and then left it there for ever…
In my effort to clean my bookshelves, this was the last title that had been sitting on my Netgalley shelf for far too long. Yes, I did it! (Please clap here, merci). So now, I only have very recent titles, and I plan to keep it that way.
Before telling you more about this second book in the series, admire the beauty of the book cover, in the same style as the first book. Very classy, and the raven is actually an important character in the book.
