Rating:  4 Stars 

Author, A.D. Joyce has created an innovative take on poetry month.  Her strategy of composing a poem a day into book form is very interesting.  

Author Joyce shows versatility in different styles of poetry, particularly Japanese forms of Haiku and Tanka.  I am now familiar with the poetic form of Fib and Cinquains. She gives a definition of each form as well as her motivation for writing the piece, which I truly found informative.   

She has a multitude of forms from Sonnets to free verse.  I especially liked the poem Incomplete Sonnet.  There   Is something for everyone in this book. I truly recommend this as a good read.  

Good luck to you author A.D. Joyce and thank you for taking the reader on a poetic journey.
