Aspiring author living in a small town in Indiana. Mother of a challenging child and crazy cat. The fish aren't that normal, either.

Trine Daely has written some truly exquisite poetry. At times it's quite dark, but it's gripping and emotional. I dare you not to feel when you read this. It's open, raw, and beautiful.

I must admit I'm not a fan of poetry but this book stood out for me as it reminded me of my mother, so I gave it a go. I am very pleased that I did. The collection spans a number of years from 1989 - 1998 , the poetry, whilst in places dark, shows glimpses of the author's hope and often weaves these two together in a remarkable way, like in the poem Orphan's Lighthouse, my favourite from this collection.
I personally find it very difficult to communicate my feelings on poetry, as I believe it's interpretation is individual to the reader.
As I have said before I am very glad I took the time to read this, as I usually skip past poetry collections. It is well written and contains some beautiful and emotional pieces. I debated weither to rate the work due not to it's quality or my enjoyment, but because perceptions of poetry are very individual. In the end I decided to rate it and would implore others, who maybe are not regular poetry readers, to take a chance on something a bit different and to share how the poems made you feel.
