Pregnant Nurses Prompt California Board for Changes

Cruel and unusual punishment is the first thing that comes to mind here. This is absolutely a flawed system that needs reform. Smells of discrimination.

🔷 BOOK: Measures
🔷 AUTHOR: B. L. Bruce

My Review:
Measures is the latest poetry collection book written by an award winning author of The Weight of Snow and The Starling’s Song.

In this book, many poems are micropoetry and I loved them. Within just few words, author has expressed deepest emotions.

I watch you dream,
and outside it
begins to snow.

I loved the poem Winter that reminded me of Snow, dreams. With the poem Submission, I think author has expressed heart of many people. White Lillies is a gem in this anthology.

If you love to read poetry then go ahead with this collection. I enjoyed this book with a cup of coffee while sitting in my front porch. Language of the book is lucid. Even if you are not an avid poetry reader, you could follow the poems.

My Rating: 4.5/5

Measures
By
B. L. Bruce

My Review:
Measures is the first book that I have read written by the author B. L. Bruce. It is a poetry collection of 58 poems. Some are micropoetry and some are even written in the Haiku format. All the poems follow a similar alignment.

October sky
blooming:
marigold, tangerine.

Autumn poems took me down few months back and reminded me of this beautiful season and of cold morning air. Some poems explores the relationship expectations like to be loved by someone deeply.

Poetry lovers could relate to many poems from the collection. Some poems even made me emotional while reading. Cover of the book is captivating. I finished this collection in three sittings. If you want to be lost in the lyrical world, then this poetry book is a perfect escape from monotonous life.

My Rating: 5/5
