I Asked the Wind is a journey into romance, love and loss through poetry. Beautiful and powerful in its lyrical and simple verse, you will find yourself immersed in a world of sensuality, passion, desire, and innocence; all woven together into a tapestry of human emotion.Drawing on natural elements such as the sun, sand, wind and moon, this collection explores the light and darkness of romantic love. From the exhilaration of love first discovered to the crushing pain of love lost, each poem evokes the intensity of the experience. Universal in its appeal, it raises the question, “Was this love real at all?”“There are those who think of me as a ‘tough’ guy but those who know me, know I love the things in life that provide the simple yet purest joys. Romance and poetry fall into that category and Valerie’s poems not only are magnificent to read but they stick with you. You will find yourself thinking about them and about her and the love and passion that fueled her fires to create such magical works. This is a collection for the romantic in you, for you to share with your lover and for everyone who wants to have their breath taken away.” Robert Robinson, Executive Producer, The Dinner Salon.

My copy of "I Asked the WInd" by Valerie Nifora just arrived and I anxiously dove into it. There are other books of poetry in my library but this one is different. First, it is all poems about romance. Second, I know the author and third, I am actually quoted on the back cover. Each poem is like a kiss between lovers, familiar and yet unique every time. The tease they delight they please and they leave you wanting more. Isn't that what a kiss does? Isn't that what romance should do? Remember Val's name for she will be one of those poets that will touch your soul and leave you wanting more.
This collection will bring smiles and solace to all who have ever loved or dreamed of finding one's special soulmate. Valerie Nifora's poems celebrate the exhilaration of the lovers' dance and serve as inspirational prayers to console those who have loved and lost. This book is the perfect year-round Valentine gift!
