Book Description

25 Feb 2010
"Akesson, gifted poet and extraordinaire, puts into words not many have the talent to achieve. Her writing is clear, profound, and creative, while at the same time poignant". --Irene Watson for Reader Views. "... an enjoyable float through well-crafted phrases, appealing cadence, and expressive emotion. Akesson shares truths about life and love in a way that reflects modern life and is embraceable by modern audiences". -- Lauren Victor for Feathered Quill Book Reviews. A journey of love, awareness and transformation The poems in Love's Thrilling Dimensions are written to stir the heart and soul. They seek to search for a connection between memory, thoughts, feelings, sensory experience and reality. They explore such universal themes as the longing for love, the awakening of wonder, the magic of encounters, the uniqueness of journeys, the ambiguity of a few existential questions and the different changes that can occur in the inner and outer landscapes. The readers witness mostly the alchemy, power and triumph of love in a transforming and spiritual journey of discovery and are invited to contemplate its significance in their own lives.

Product Description

Review

"Dimensions" is truly the key word in the book's title, as each piece focuses on a different aspect of love from a unique (and sometimes surprising) perspective. Yes, one of those aspects is the romantic relationship and its many nuances, but there is so much more - attraction, acceptance, desire, friendship, belonging, giving . . . living.

Each piece beautifully worded to stimulate the mind, touch the heart, and feed the spirit. -- Doug Heatherly, writer (January 23, 2009)

At a fundamental level, the collection explores the many dimensions of love and what it is to be human. Akesson travels through hopes and fears in the face of love, yet she also delves into existential questions that many readers will appreciate. She easily flows between asking, "Are we playing at something/or are we doing it for real?" and more figurative concepts like that of Chaos who "sometimes glares at the world/while smoking his cigar." There are many moments like these that grant depth to her work beyond the surface features of love.
... Ultimately Love's Thrilling Dimensions is an enjoyable float through well-crafted phrases, appealing cadence, and expressive emotion. Akesson shares truths about life and love in a way that reflects modern life and is embraceable by modern audiences. -- Feathered Quill Book Reviews (January 22, 2009)

What a wonderful book of poetry to touch the heart, deepen the spirit, and stir up the emotions! Joyce Akesson, gifted poet and extraordinaire, puts into words not many have the talent to achieve. Her writing is clear, profound, and creative, while at the same time poignant. -- Irene Watson for Reader Views (January 22, 2009) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

By SP Magazine Book Reviews - Published on Amazon.com
Love's Thrilling Dimensions is a must read for everyone who is looking for poems written to stir the heart and soul.
These poems seek to search for a connection between memory, thoughts, feelings, sensory experience and reality. They explore such universal themes as the longing for love, the awakening of wonder, the magic of encounters, the uniqueness of journeys, the ambiguity of a few existential questions and the different changes that can occur in the inner and outer landscapes.
If you are a lover of poetry, I highly suggest to read this book. 5 Stars from me!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful images painted with words 3 Mar 2009
By Danielle Barkhouse - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Wow! This is a beautiful book of images and words. My favorite (so far) is 'At The Crossroads' on page. 23.

"But home is far away
and I seem to have lost
both my compass
and my way."

The writing feels like it's coming from a personal place and makes the reader feel privileged to have a glimpse.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well done! 24 Jan 2009
By D. Heatherly - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Love has to be the most talked about, sung about, and written about subject in human history. How can a poet still find something to say that's original, yet relevant - substantial, yet accessible? I don't know, but Joyce Akesson does.

"Dimensions" is truly the key word in the book's title, as each piece focuses on a different aspect of love from a unique (and sometimes surprising) perspective. Yes, one of those aspects is the romantic relationship and its many nuances, but there is so much more - attraction, acceptance, desire, friendship, belonging, giving . . . living.

Each piece beautifully worded to stimulate the mind, touch the heart, and feed the spirit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Refound My Fondness for Poetry 20 Jan 2009
By Don E. Rainwater - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I haven't read poetry since the fifth grade and I was forced to do it then. I picked up this book as something to just look at and I was sucked into the magic of this author's poetry. The words flowed not with rhyem but with a rhythem that is both upbeat and thought provoking. I discovered my love for poetry once again and will be looking for more from this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Love poetry 13 Jan 2009
By Wicked Sunny - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
It has been a while, since I read someone else's poetry book. The depth of Joyce poems are reflected from the very first page I browsed.

A few images of you
fall apart from my hands
They are not you.

I have surely not read many love poems and this one enticed me till the end. I am going to keep this book near my bed and go through it again whenever I get time.

A great poetry book. 5 stars
