Jessica Fuqua is a mommy blogger and poetry author.

She has put together a collection of 25 beautifully written poems in this book. They are all very short and it is a very quick and easy read.

She covers various types of poetry writing, everything from Haiku's, Tanka's, Triolet's, Shadorma's, Sonnets, and Acrostics.

Jessica's passion for nature comes to life with the vividly written poems.

It is hard to describe poetry, because I feel everyone has different views, but if you like poetry and natural, I am positive you will like Jessica's book.

This book is a collection of beautiful poems titled "Light Spectrums" by Jessica Fuqua. It contains several types of poetry genres. I loved reading them, and they are all beautiful but there were a few that really caught my eye. The author uses the seasons and nature to move the reader and it works. I love poetry and I am not familiar with all the types, so this book is a great starter for those who don't read poetry a lot. Superb read, definitely pick up a copy!

The poetry book is easy to read and the author focuses on nature in this particular book and I cannot wait to read more from her. She is also a blogger and you can tell that her poems come from the heart. I had a couple favorites out of this book, "Dandelions" which reminds me of my life in a lot of ways and completely describes how I feel about my daughter and the love she has brought into my life :) The poem describes how like the "cowardly lion" I want to give up but cannot and my daughter would be the "dandelion" who inspires me every day so that I don't give up. Even moreso this poem spoke to me because my daughter LOVES dandelions - she wants to go outside all the time and pick them and loves to blow on them. So it definitely was my favorite :) My other favorite is "Aura" although I can't totally explain why ... it just moved me.

First of all I have to say that I really enjoyed reading Jessica's poetry. The book contains many short poems and is a very easy read. I often find describing poetry difficult, sometimes, as my interpretation may vary from others. I also have found, in the past and present, that poetry can be an acquired taste. Some may find the rhythmic style of the Cat in the Hat and Green Eggs and Ham are what they like best and not natural speech which are found in prose.

I did learn something new in reading Jessica's Book and that is the many styles of poetry there are. I had not known about Acrostic, Tanka, Haiku, Triolet and Shadorma. Jessica has at least one example of these styles as well as combined such as in her poem Dew, a Haiku and Acrostic mix.

I truly believe that if you like poetry, you will love Jessica's book.

Review by: Melinda on July 03, 2014 :
A very nice collection of 25 poems. While many of the poems are related to nature, there are a few on other topics. My favorite was "Writer's Block". These poems are primarily positive in tone, which is nice if you don't like poetry that is depressing. The poems flow well and the author is very good at using words to help you visualize scenes to go with the poems.
