It's a long time since I bought a book of poetry, but this one appealed to me very much. Having read some of the author's books and thoroughly enjoyed them, I was curious to see if her poetry followed suit. Some of the poems date back to her younger days and it is interesting to see the charming 'immaturity' juxtaposed with the more recent offerings. Gina Dickerson certainly runs the gamut, nicely interspersing comedy (Favourite Drink) with pithy philosophy (Balloon), and successfully introducing areas such as domestic abuse - a subject that is never easy. (Your Control).The author is clearly a keen observer (and participant) of life in the raw. She brings a keen eye to every subject and has a flair for empathy. A thoughtful, lyrical read, with every poem to be savoured. I look forward to reading more of Gina Dickerson's work.
Being a poetry geek, from an early age, I opened Twisted Thoughts, with eagerness, and was not disappointed, Some are dark, and deep, while others will make you sigh. With lines such as " All I do, is look in your eyes Hoping you'll see my heart fly" This beautiful book of poetry, is for everyone who appreciates the written word, and how poets write from the heart.
