Delightful Poems that Touch your Soul Inspiring, thought provoking, and enchanting are words I would use to describe Selma’s poetry. Often, I found myself either smiling or teary-eyed as her poems are very relatable. Selma’s poetry will tickle your mind and touch your soul. The poems in Whimsical Warrior elegantly touch on aspects of the human condition: life, death, love, illness (cancer), and growing older. Selma, also known as the Butterly Poet, is truly a Whimsical Warrior. We discover through her poems that Selma was an attorney and, with a little help from her muse, has discovered that she is also a poet. Through her poems, we get brief introductions to her family (daughters, goddaughter, late husband, and grandson) who are obvious inspirations for her poetry. Selma has battled and defeated breast cancer twice, lived through the loss of her love, and is currently coping with the challenges of getting older. These parts of her life can all be glimpsed through her poems in this book and her previous book, Mourning Cloak. This book is delightful and includes poems cleverly titled: Poet at a Genius Bar, The view from 77, Tantrum, Young Labrador, Empty Chrysalis Syndrome, Barbie Breasts, Loving pains, Flash forward and many, many more. Selma has discovered how to see the light in dark situations, the gifts in challenges she faces and, through her poems, she invites us into her world that radiates gratitude. Whimsical Warrior is an easy read that touches your soul. It had me thinking about the poems for days after I read them. I highly recommend this book! It would make a great coffee table book and a very thoughtful gift! :)
