One is the one called The Sword - very current in it's theme.

The other one I enjoyed is haiku. Go read it. There are a couple of poems that I really liked. One is The Sword - a current thought.
The second is haiku that starts Early Rush Hour. Jul 27, Michael Morris rated it it was ok. Poet has potential Many of the haiku in this book are strong. However, a number of the other pieces have no imagery or charm, but repeat words and phrases unnecessarily. Proofreading would have also helped considerably. Apr 12, Mike Heyd rated it did not like it Shelves: first-reads. Volumes have been written about what poetry is and how poems work. None of them apply to this little book. It does not.
There is neither art nor craft in these pages. Even limericks are hard to do well. Years ago I was involved in a literary project with a young man who wanted desperately to be a writer. I remember that a poetry editor to whom he had submitted some verses replied with the blunt recommendation that the young man find some other line of endeavor. I thought this cruel at the time but, older and wiser now, I understand how that editor must have felt. I hope Vanessa Ngam will realize that publishing material like this is, at best, premature, and a poor use of HER precious time.

McGhee rated it really liked it. I enjoyed reading the variations of poems within this collection. I've never understood Haiku. However, the way this writer presents it, I was very intrigued. And the limericks were very light and humorous.

It was a delightful read. I had a few favorites from this book. One of the Haikus: "Awakening stars, Up listening, to the tireless engine.
The imagery alone just captivated me. The limerick about "The Sword" was very thought-provoking. A few of the pieces were in another langua I enjoyed reading the variations of poems within this collection. A few of the pieces were in another language I did not understand.
A great read. Jun 04, Michelle rated it it was amazing. This came in at the right time. Been dealing with grieving for my father I lost a few months back and I just needed something for a few hours to get my mind off of things spiraling around me. I have to say I highly recommend Vanessa's book. It kept me hooked on the poems, limericks, and Haiku's. Was very good and entertaining for evenings you just need to get away from the hustle and bustle of life and relax.
Jul 04, Eileen Sateriale added it Shelves: poetry. I read this book and didn't get into it. I felt that there should have been more to the poems. There should have been more to them in my opinion.

Didn't really enjoy this. Felt like I was hearing someone's fragmented thoughts and was left hanging most of the time. Oct 05, Brittany rated it did not like it Shelves: won-giveaways I think this would have flowed together better if the subject matter was a little more focused. It was rather sporadic. None the less, there were some great ones I really enjoyed and thought were pretty and clever.
Instead of having titles, the limericks and haiku were numbered. I'm not a fan of this because now I have to refer to what I'm talking about in numbers so please don't get bored here or feel like you're in a history lesson. Please refer to s Here are som I think this would have flowed together better if the subject matter was a little more focused. Here are some of the ones that I admired and my interpretations of them This scenery was relaxing and made me want to watch the snowfall. Made me think of a wedding or an engagement. This one seemed very out of place compared to the others.
If I remember correctly, this is the only one that talked about physical death. I think this repetition is an error, so I thought I would mention it. The middle consists of limericks which are 3 to 4 words and talked about random various odd subjects such as gas, babies, birds, and luggage. This was again an odd variety.
Ends with Limericks of sounds and visualizations.
