This book is a must for the library of every family seeking God¿s blessing or not. It highlights a wonderful message and shows us the unity of the family as they work together to make this book a reality. The book presents and teaches many forms of writing styles for everyone who reads its pages to learn. The reader will obtain knowledge of Haiku poems, Quatrain forms, Nonet styles, and much more. We are even given a brief meaning of all of the styles and forms from a very special mentor and teacher.

While gliding through the pages of this book, the writers take us on a journey starting with The Season of Beauty. In this section you are able to capture nature at its best while reading ¿Autumn Rain,¿ ¿Spring Showers,¿ and ¿Ducks in a Row.¿ This section is captivating!

The Prayers for Life Events section inspires the readers to pray without ceasing. If not knowing what to say, the writers guide us to the throne of Grace with ¿Prayers for Victims of Natural Disasters,¿ ¿Our Soldiers,¿ ¿Healing Cancer Ailments,¿ and ¿Forgiveness and Salvation.¿ These are just awesome prayers reaching into the heart!

Joseph, Shelia, and Jonathan gives us words of wisdom as they present to us Daily Inspirational Thoughts and His All Encompassing Love for Us. I truly enjoyed reading the authors¿ notes at the end of each poem as well as the poem itself. The writers spoke directly from their hearts and you can feel the sincerity in each line.

As you continue to read, the writers press onward with this spiritual journey through Family, Love, and Relationships, leading into Love and Romance, and then moving onto Reflections and Travel. When reading the poem, ¿Thanksgiving, Ah, I Remember,¿ you will find yourself sitting at the table with the family. The family bonding in these poems really makes you reflect on the ¿Good Old Days.¿

The book ends with the elegant dishes from the Epulaeryu Poetry selections. You must really read this section to taste the flavor of these succulent dishes. Joseph really arouses the sense of taste in this section. I just love the aroma of spices from these dishes.

I really could not put the book down. I would read...reflect...and read some more...I am honored to have this book in my hands.

The reviewer, Mary Ann Duhart, is a poet and author. Her inspiring poetry book entitled Healing Through Poetry was recently released.

This collection of poetry was outstanding! It was written from a family of poets. It took us to many countries and was very enjoyable to read. As a poet myself, you all did well with each form that was written. The poems inspirational value brought peace as I read them and your own created form, the Eupulaeryu poetry was splendid. I felt as if I was enjoying all those exotic meals you so creatively wrote of. Blessings with your poetic endeavors. Author of "My Walk with Jesus" published by PublishAmerica also.

This is an excellent book of poetry. I love the prose and the flow of the words. The imagery created by the book is wonderful and captivating. The Epulaeryu form created by Joseph Spence is awesome. I love the tasty delicacy in the dishes presented in each poem. The poems are very realistic and make the reader think about life in deep meditation. They cover everyday experiences including how to deal with turmoil and how to celebrate success. Each poem is very inspirational and encouraging. I highly recommend this book for your reading pleasure.

This is an outstanding book of poetry by the Spence family. I like the inspirational tone of the poems and the uplifting message each one sends. The imagery is so beautiful throughout the book, especially in the section addressing ¿Prayers for Life Events¿ and ¿Daily Inspirational Thoughts,¿ just to name a few. The poems cover family, love, relationships, reflections on their travels, and much more they also open ones mind to new possibilities. The ¿Epulaeryu¿ poetic form invention by Joseph Spence is marvelous and flows with such grace. It¿s about succulent food and will tease your creative cooking style. Don¿t forget the ¿Epulaeryu¿ section at section at the end of the book. Joseph is a Poet Laureate and National Poet Judge Advocate from the Poetry Corner, and he has diligently worked with his wife, Sheila, and son, Jonathan, in obtaining such great distinctions, which they have earned also. This is an outstanding book of poetry for all to read by an outstanding family of laureate authors and poets. Another great book of poetry to read is, ¿Trilogy Moments for the Mind, Body and Soul.¿

Although the Spence family have devoted only one section in this book to 'Family, Love and Relationships', every section reflects what family life and love should be all about. With each family member contributing their well-written poetry, readers can see the respect and love that each one holds for the other. As you read this book, you will actually feel the stress and tension melt away as their beautiful words bring a feeling of peaceful enjoyment. This book encompasses a few different forms of poetry including the Epulaeryu, Nonet, Pleiades and Trois-par-Huit among others. If you are not familiar with these forms, no problem! There is a section of definitions provided so that you may get the full benefit of what the poems have to offer. From Joseph's 'Autumn Rain' to Sheila's 'Jamaica Shining' and with Jonathan's 'A Father's Heart' between them, Trilogy Moments for the Mind Body and Soul will lift your spirits like no other!

'Trilogy Moments' is a poetry book for the mind, body and soul, beautifully crafted by the husband, wife and son trio of Joseph, Sheila and Johnathan Spence. This book embraces many different poetic forms such as haiku, quatrain, nonet, senryu, acrostic and introduces a new form created by Joseph Spence called, 'epulaeryu', which is a poem about delicious foods. There is a section in the back of the book defining each poetic form, making this a perfect reference guide for new poets. 'Trilogy Moments' is broken into nine sections covering such topics as, 'The Seasons of Beauty', 'Daily Inspirational Thoughts', and 'Family, Love and Relationships' to name a few. My favorite section is entitled, 'Prayers for Life Events', which makes me see 'Trilogy Moments' as not only a book of enjoyable poetry, but also as a book to pick up when in need of a little pick-me-up. The Spence's are a very blessed and talented family, and I thank them for sharing their blessings through this wonderful book.
