Cheryl Denise has a unique ability to say a lot with few words. Many insights into human nature from a Mennonite upbringing. Tersely cogent ... Powerfully emotional.
Poetic perfection Oct 6, 2007
This is truly a wonderful collection of poetry! Cheryl Denise has a gift for voicing profound thoughts through concise, accessible language. These poems address core human values and issues--among them, relationships, family traditions, acceptance, temptation, and spirituality. Personal favorites include "They'll," "God and Farmers," and "Motherhood." I highly recommend this book to both seasoned readers of poetry and newcomers.
A poetry book I understand Oct 3, 2007
I love this poetry book. It is understandable, earthy, spiritual, and real! If you enjoy poetry; actually, even if you only slightly enjoy poetry, you will love this book. Some of my favorites are: God and Farmers, Mother God, Mennonite Poet, Quilt Makers, Heaven and Things, and Martha's Story. I like to have extra copies at all times, to give as gifts.
Well Worth Your Time Oct 3, 2007
I Saw God Dancing: Poems (Dreamseeker Poetry Series) This salty sweet collection will both lift your heart and break it -- often in the same poem. Cheryl Denise writes with passion, wry humor, and occasionally, justifiable anger, of her responses to life's experiences. By inviting the reader to share, just for a moment, in her joy, her pain, and even her bewilderment, she opens a window into a heart filled with wisdom beyond her years. Be sure to take your time with "My People", "My Name is Ruth", "Baby Sister", and "Close to the door". Cheryl Denise is a reflective poet who I hope to hear much more from in the years ahead.
