I am so truly new to this area of literature that I can offer no real expertise, but I have opinions, and the following are mine. I just hope that you can find a small amount of justice for Mel’s beautiful work in the fumbling attempt below. Thank you Mel for providing me with this lovely copy to review. ♥ Patchwork Poetry is an elegant collection of free verse poems that encompasses three wonderful and important aspects of life: aspiration, inspiration, and evolution. Mel Finefrock has managed to present her work in a timeline that adequately walks us through these stages with a certain air of heart and boldness. Her words are embracing and comforting, as I found a sense of familiarity in the old emotions that returned and washed over me during the course of the time it took to read this small and beautifully covered little book. Perhaps what I found to be the most rewarding element of reading Mel’s work was just how personal it truly was. Each poem resonated with a definite amount of connection, while I was able to still understand and grasp that these where her moments. I was witnessing her time through the strength of her words. She was painting pictures of her history and presenting them to the reader. The entire experience that is Patchwork Poetry felt open and full of life. The honest and sometimes simple but heavy emotion touches the soul and exposes a side of human life we can often tend to overlook.
