A journey of love, awareness and ...
A journey of love, awareness and transformation The poems in Love's Thrilling Dimensions are written to stir the heart and soul. They seek to search for a connection between memory, thoughts, feelings, sensory experience and reality. They explore such universal themes as the longing for love, the awakening of wonder, the magic of encounters, the uniqueness of journeys, the ambiguity of a few existential questions and the different changes that can occur in the inner and outer landscapes. The readers witness mostly the alchemy, power and triumph of love in a transforming and spiritual journey of discovery and are invited to contemplate its significance in their own lives.

I placed this book high on my list of favorites. I savored all its poems and will read them again and again.
If you like to read about issues connected with relations, metaphysics, parallel words, auspicious signs, the interconnection between events, the principle of causes and effects and the struggle with opposing forces, you will love this book. I did!
It is very uplifting and insightful.
A real MYSTICAL and SPIRITUAL adventure!!

Perhaps poetry is the highest written form of love. In Love's Thrilling Dimensions, Joyce Akesson proves this point. With care and tenderness, this Swedish writer doles out a collection of poetry that is thoughtful and thought provoking, with a voice that is full of spirit and pleasant rhythm.<BR/><BR/>At a fundamental level, the collection explores the many dimensions of love and what it is to be human. Akesson travels through hopes and fears in the face of love, yet she also delves into existential questions that many readers will appreciate. She easily flows between asking, "Are we playing at something/or are we doing it for real?" and more figurative concepts like that of Chaos who "sometimes glares at the world/while smoking his cigar." There are many moments like these that grant depth to her work beyond the surface features of love.<BR/><BR/>Speaking from personal experience, although I imagine many will agree, poetry about love definitely has its ideal moments to be consumed. After a break up I will probably reach for a dose of Rumi, or during a loving relationship I will feel motivated to pen a love poem for a partner. In the meantime, even though I am not one to necessarily gravitate to a collection about love, this book still has a relevant place on my current shelf. Despite being in a life phase in search of love, my romantic and tormented soul still appreciates stanzas like "Who would have known/that a kiss could quench my thirst/like this?" or<BR/><BR/>You are at the mercy of this consuming love,<BR/>this heartless thief named passion,<BR/>who with a joyless eye, <BR/>unlocks your heart, <BR/>penetrates your mind <BR/>and devours your soul <BR/>from the inside out. <BR/>Ultimately Love's Thrilling Dimensions is an enjoyable float through well-crafted phrases, appealing cadence, and expressive emotion. Akesson shares truths about life and love in a way that reflects modern life and is embraceable by modern audiences.<BR/><BR/>Quill says: A tasty recipe of sweetness, pain, and pleasure.Was this review helpful?

I found this book very elegant and captivating. It explores the various terrains of love, love at first sight, seduction, encounters, emotional labyrinths, obsession, physical and spiritual love, passion, expectations, longing, bliss, compromises, affection and harmony. It contains as well narrative contexts and takes up existential questions.<BR/>The emotional language is clear and vivid. The imagery and metaphor are beautiful and intriguing. The voice speaks of things that matter. ¿Your key fits my door / at unpredictable hours¿ is said in one poem, ¿Destiny lifts us up / but we keep on falling into each other¿s arms¿, is said in another. <BR/>Intriguing and very beautiful!<BR/><BR/>I can vividly recommend this book to anyone.Was this review helpful?
