This lovely collection of poetry is a wonderful addition to Ms. Bishop’s poetic imagery. Starting with Abused, an abrupt awakening to the plight of many women, through Lost Ones, an aching tribute to the Newtown Angels, and continuing through Civility she takes us on an emotional journey through life, ”…what could be said in one sentence is stated in a million words” concluding with “Honesty is good and helps, But not without courtesy.” From the great sense of loss in Shadows through the beauty and hope in Sunlight and Shadows, and the tribute in Honor to those who served and still serve, this is a lovely collection of poetry by a talented author.
Marta Moran Bishop continues her journey in Sunlight and Shadows. This book of poetry, unlike A Poet’s Journey: Emotions, is a more thought-provoking book. In its pages, she covers everything from God, to life after death, war, and the shooting in Newtown, Connecticut. Still, she is able to bring to life the beauty and grandeur of her surroundings and make us laugh, cry, think, and feel.
Sunlight and Shadows will once again, take you on an emotional journey through life.
I believe it is how we deal with despair, tragedy, and joy that define us as human beings.
