Flattery is a wonderful thing…And that is exactly how I felt when our very own here on WP, Yvette at Priorhouse , my friend, shared her book of avian friends—Flattered, it was an honor for me to read and brought many smiles to my face! And I must say I was genuinely impressed!
Her love for our feathered friends showed from start to finish. It was very obvious she is an avid fan of nature and the outdoors. She loves watching her avian friends in their natural habitat and that played a huge part in the selection of verses she penned in her book.
Every page was filled with her intriguing way with humor and wit, but most importantly her love for birds spilled right out of her heart and across every page!
I really enjoyed the “Behind the Poem” inserts. It was very interesting to read about the inspiration behind each individual poem. Tucked into every one of these, are bits of information that I had never heard before….teaching moments and little nuggets of wisdom she has gleaned from reading books from other authors about our beloved avian friends. Also, she addresses real life issues through the use of idioms about our fine “birds of a feather!”
My personal favorite I think was called, “Why the Joy.” It focused on having godly contentment. It spoke to my spirit. We don’t always have to be happy to be content. “Trying” was a humorous one that left me chuckling. How many times have I tried to get my own way, to no avail with God. I’m glad He knows best. 🙂 I could see myself this past summer, sitting on my back porch, wishing I didn’t have to go back in. So, I took the sunshine inside with me. I loved that one also. Could it be safe to say that I ❤️ this whole book??? 😁
As you begin to read each line, let your worries roll and fade, like “water off a duck’s back!” An actual idiom from her book that I have always found humorous and helpful, by the way. 😁✌🏼
If you are a fan of nature and birds and in the market for a great collection of poems, look no further. This one’s for you! Prepare yourself to apply chapstick quite often from all the smiling you will do!
I give this great book of poetic prose a 5 star! ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼
