"Every once in a while, a collection of verse is written that has a universal metre -- a purity and simplicity that transcends cultures and speaks to everyone, regardless of nationality, sex, creed, or any other differentiator. Only This by Fawn Moran is just such a work.
She imparts inspiration in many of poems, such as in "The Summons:" "Heed without hesitation / All That Is invites / Your participation./ But don't look back. / The future you dream of / Isn't behind you."
In "Rise," the message is also uplifting: "The deeper you go / The higher you will rise. / But don't be fooled. / There's much to apprise. / Pain, sorrow, fear, turmoil / Keep you at bay. / Face them before it's too late. / A life-changing breakthrough is on its way. / The love you're made of / Will take their place."
On the subject of love, in "Take a Chance:"
"Love won't betray you / Or leave you in the dust. / Claim the courage you've denied - / Too broken to take a risk / Too angry to try, / Too fearful of failure - / You wouldn't take a chance. / Courage leads to hidden treasure. / Invite the one who loves you / To share the adventure."
And, finally, a poem about "Prayer:" "Prayer isn't about things you want / Or wish to be. / It's your ever present longing / For Divinity."
Five stars for this fine collection of verse, and a heartfelt thanks to the author for committing such sincerity and insight to paper." ~ Don Sloan, book reviewer and former journalist
"Fawn Moran has managed to distill so much wisdom into phrases that open doors that we thought were closed. Reading her words, or better still, reading them out loud, brings a resonance in the heart that remains. The distillation has clearly come from many hours of plumbing her own depths. This is not a collection of ideas-it's a collection of Truth revealed. Try it. You might end up becoming what you were seeking."
