J. D. Estrada’s poetry book was a true feast of words and poetic forms. He makes everything sound poetic, even sipping a cup of tea with honey. I enjoyed reading this book very much. I am so used to reading romantic poetry this was so refreshing to me.
“Honey sings and taste buds listen,
with each cup of tea,
The cup does glisten.”
Honey, cantaloupe, or any other simple food that evokes taste for the poetic soul, J.D. can find poetry in all walks and flavours of life.
“Scale” is an example of good sound advice coming from a poet along with a rhyming unique verse. He observes the sky from an objective view point as a spectator,
“As I drink the sky, I gently swoon,
copper clouds, silver moon.”
The poem, “Retrospect” is my type of poetry, full of longing and love for a lover. “I love you like a lost kiss in the corner of a memory,” it starts off and briefly illustrates how memories and moments are a mere passing like a wink of an eye.
J.D. Estrada has written a multitude of haikus that explore the human condition and the mystery of truth, desire and expression.
The way he describes drinking a cup of coffee in the poem “Note to Self,” makes me love coffee even more, if possible. I loved everything about this book. It has an old feel to it, J.D. Estrada is a poet with an old soul, he writes poetry with messages about humanity, people and the bonds that tie us together.
I would recommend this poetry book.
