Book Review: Borrowed Wings by Regina Puckett

Borrowed Wings

by Regina Puckett

5/5 stars

It’s no secret I have high expectations for children’s books. I think they should challenge the young and old alike to interpret and feel a broad range of emotions. Borrowed Wings by Regina Puckett hits this on every level. The cover is brilliant, grabbing your attention, and the story is no less fantastic. The artwork and story are supremely touching. I’m 27 years-old and the tale of a mother and son dragon brought tears to my manly eyes. But I’m also a teacher and see great value in the lessons taught about the importance of love and family. You will love this book no matter what your age. I only wish it had gone on forever.

Cubist Poetry

A few days ago I wrote a post on Facebook mentioning cubist poetry. Two poets, Chris McQueeney and Regina Puckett, left comments with astonishing poems.

*****

Like a Rubik’s cube
Your visage is square
Off center
All angles and corners

A fabulous face painted flat and outlined
A perfect banquet of color in which to dine
Each tinted circle and painted square
Begged for the world to stop and stare
A simple way of expressing beauty and art
Color sprayed onto canvas from the heart

Book Review: Enlightened by Regina Puckett

Enlightened

by Regina Puckett

4/5 stars

Regina Puckett writes rhyming poetry but she does it with a lot of heart. I don’t normally enjoy rhyming myself, but I connected with the author. Her last words in particular resonated: “So I’ll crumple the ink filled sheet / And consider my life’s work complete.” There were only small issues with the formatting: the poem titles could be more distinct.

Dream List of Books

There are a lot of books I want to buy. Unfortunately, some are not yet available, and others cost money. I’ve read as much as the Amazon sample allows for most, but decided it would be good to have a dream list of books.
