This collection of poetry is categorized into three sections: Natural, Supernatural, and Love. J.J. Brown's versatility is in top form as there are such layers and themes present, one could make an argument for placing different poems in any of the three categories. No matter the subject, this author seemingly crafts spellbinding works at will effortlessly. Reading these selections propels you into realms of light, darkness, and shades of grey in between. Occasionally even the most gifted of wordsmiths are unable to engage their audience, here this is not the case, the writing is both proficient and soulful. So universal and timeless are these poems even the most captious readers will be appreciative of this volume.

This collection is poetry at its best. It opened me up to my own vulnerability with gentle prodding. At first you may be resistant to the sweet tones, but quickly you realize the pain which cloaks itself in the sweetness. The poems evoke vivid images of nature, weaving the human life into a tapestry of the natural world. We humans are inescapably a part of the Natural, the Supernatural, and Love.
