A Poet's Journey: Emotions by Marta Moran Bishop is a wonderful, emotional journey through the poet's life. Each poem beautifully portrays a series of emotions, bringing the words alive. More than one poem will appeal and speak to each reader, resonating deep in the soul. Lovingly crafted by Moran Bishop, the poems reveal bits and pieces of her life. Below, I have listed & discussed a few of my favorites: My Dearest Edgar and Dear Edgar – haunting poems full of deep longing for a kindred spirit. It's obvious that the poet's author can't have the one person she wants above all others. Betrayal – full of sorrow and emotional pain. At one time or another, each of us has felt this sort of emotional burden. Enough – Builds on 'Betrayal', showing the poet's resignation to a situation and deciding she's had enough. Tribute to My Mother – This is a beautiful, loving tribute to a wonderful lady. Though it was written specifically for the poet's mother, the love and warmth expressed could be for every mother. Death, I Am Not Afraid – is a unique look at death and dying. There is no apprehension on the part of the poet, only a defiance. In this poem, she speaks to Death, accepting the inevitable, but vowing to live her life to the fullest. Walk on the Rainbow – Weaves lovely imagery, leaving the reader uplifted. Puddles – a fun, joyful look at what most consider a nuisance. It takes the reader back to the days when we were children and purposely jumped in every puddle. Craigworth Dimpleton – is a tribute to a beloved family pet. It brings a smile to the reader's face. Hitchhiker – Although it's about a mouse, it reminds me of a trip I took with a tree frog plastered to my windshield. It's a charming, uplifting poem. Bit of a Bookworm – I really identified with this poem. It is so me! A Poet's Journey will delight the reader making them alternately happy, nostalgic or sad. It is an amazing and intricate voyage through life and love in all its aspects. I highly recommend A Poet's Journey for anyone who loves poetry and even those who claim not to understand it. The language is clear, the emotions easy to comprehend. It's a wonderful book to read and share with a friend. Five Golden Acorns

Straight from the heart . . . I truly enjoyed this collection of poems from Marta Moran Bishop. The deep emotions, observations, and insights come straight from her heart onto the page. “Life’s Miracles,” one of my favorites, talks about how busy society is, so focused on the television that we forget to focus on life. The poet’s style is short and simple, but abounding in truth. The poems she wrote for her mother and sister, “A Tribute To My Mother,” and “I’m Not Ready To Lose My Sister,” are poignant, heart-wrenching, beautiful, and immensely relatable. In other poems, her sharp words for those who have hurt pack a wallop. These poems make the reader think about her/his own life and those who have strayed, betrayed, or merely played with one’s emotions. What I love about Marta Moran Bishop’s work is that while vulnerable, she always shows her ability to rebound, to gather strength, and to help others by sharing her truths. With an appreciative and loving eye the outdoors, she has a keen and special way of embracing the nuances of nature. The author’s first book, Wee Three: A Child’s World, remains one of my favorite books of children’s verse.
